Billy Elliott – absolutely fantastic

Reiner and I both laughed and cried at Victoria Palace Theatre, the best show we have both ever seen at – totally amazing how the emotions of the miners and Billy and his family were portrayed. But if course we had to say hello to the Queen at Buckingham Palace and enjoy Fish ‘n Chips at a typical English pub Bag O Nails first.

Hop on & hop off in London

Perfect start to the day with cooked English breakfast outside in the sunshine overlooking the Thames. Then we hopped on and hopped off all day with my cousin Caroline and her husband Rob to see the ‘usual’ sights and a few lesser well-known ones like the upside-down house in Blackfriars Road and the house where the Earl of Sandwich is said to have found the sandwich in the 18th Century so he could continue playing cards. And it was hot!!!

Flight to London

Had a fun start to our two week holiday in the UK by meeting our neighbors at the airport. Our neighbors on both sides are spending this week in the south of England! We were also hoping to see the German football team as Lufthansa have repainted their planes with Fanhansa 🙂
