Museums, museums, museums

Since we are poor college students with no income at the moment we have been doing everything in London that we can do for free. Luckily that's pretty easy for a city with so much history and so many amazing free museums! Here are a few pictures from each museum, monument (there are a lot of those around) or random place that we went to:
The Museum of London

St. Paul's Cathedral

Buckingham Palace and the Royal Mews (where they keep the royal horses and carriages)

Parliament, Westminster Abby and Big Ben

Westminster Hall inside the houses of Parliament. This plaque may be too small to read, but it says: "Near this spot, at the King's bench at the south end of the hall, took place the trial of Sir William Wallace the Scottish patriot on Monday, 23rd August 1305"

The National Gallery, Trafalgar Square and Picadilly Circus

The Museum of Natural History

Hyde Park

Shakespear's Globe Theatre

The Royal Observatory and Greenwich Park

The Tower of London

You are definitely having too much fun! I always knew Spencer was a go getter; but, he really scored big getting an internship in London and having such a beautiful, supportive wife. Looks like life couldn't be better ;-) Congrats! I'm way happy for both of you.

Spencer I am really jealous that you have been living in London! I would love to go out there and travel Europe for a few weeks. I found your blog and looks as though all is going really great with you!
