Be right back--gone to London...

A couple of weeks ago I scurried off to London and unbeknownst to me the Queen’s Jubilee festivities were in full swing! I had seen the ins and outs of London a few years ago with my mom (my mom loves London) so I was there for one reason and one reason only: to meet up with a close girlfriend from California just before she embarked on her first ever Eurotrip! Despite only having 30 hours to soak up laughs with Amanda before heading back to Amsterdam, we still managed to squeeze in plenty of Pimm’s, Abbey Road, Platform 9 ¾ at King’s Cross Station and caught Hamlet at Shakespeare’s Globe Theater. Oddly enough, Hamlet was in Lithuanian as part of The Globe’s ‘Globe to Globe’ campaign—throughout the summer, the theater is putting on plays in a variety of languages, I think it’s a great idea! And they had English translations available on screens too for those who didn't have stellar Lithuanian skills ;).

Here’s a few snippets from my iPhone from my quicky weekend in London!

This weekend will be a mellow one in Holland--hope yours is a good one ;).

Looks like a great little trip! and thrilled that you went to platform 9 3/4! Is it weird i've never tried Pimms and i'm not even sure what it is?
