Down South

The hubby and I have been on the go non-stop since we landed almost two weeks ago.  This passed Saturday we flew down to England for a few days.  We rented a car, and traveled down to Kent.  Re-tracing the hubbies family history along the way.  The first night we stayed in a country B&B.

We set off bright and early the next morning, and headed to the Canterbury Cathedral. While in Canterbury we went on a river tour, we strolled the streets of a medieval town.  Followed by a trip a little further south to the white cliffs of Dover! 

After our stop at the white cliffs we headed back to the airport area to return our hired car.  We spent the night in an airport hotel, and set off bright and early for the city.

We took the train into the city, followed by the under ground train to our hotel.  Once we dropped off our suitcases we headed out sight seeing.  We started off on foot,  but decided there was too much to be seen.  So we bought a 24 hour open top tour bus ticket which allows you to hop on and off as you please. 

We seen everything from Big Ben to Buckingham Palace, and everything else in between.  I even managed to squeeze in a shopping trip to Harrods all in less than 24 hours! 

I will need a vacation from my vacation once we return home.
