Travel details

In the midst of school madness and work, I am dreaming of Europe. I've now planned out the first week of my trip! I can't believe it's less than 2 months away!!


Day 1
Travel, travel, travel and land in London

Day 2
Victoria & Albert Museum. Yards of fabric, shoes and beautiful fashion. Strolling down the streets to Tate Modern. Along the way seeing the Buckingham Palace Gardens and Westminster Cathedral.

Day 3
The National Gallery in the morning. Then taking a short walk to John Keats' home - a poet close to my heart. Then off to see the Crystal Palace.

Day 4
Jane Austen's Home.

Day 5
The British Museum - Having studied the Elgin Marbles in several art history courses, I cannot wait to see them in person. Then to the magical place where Shakespeare's works came to life - the Globe Theatre.

Day 6
Tour of Bath, Stonehenge and Stratford.

Day 7
Leave for Paris!!
