Michelle: Hey everyone! Well we made it to London! This is such an amazing city! I was overwhelmed at first because it's so huge but once you're here, you sort of forget about it's size and just focus on all the cool things to do and see. Yesterday we walked five miles from the bus station to our hotel, with our huge backpacks on. It was a really long and tiring walk but so much fun to see the city on foot. We walked all through central London, passing the British Museum of Natural History and the London Fashion Week tents among many other things. After dropping off our backpacks at the hotel in Earl's Court, we went back downtown and spent at least a couple hours at the British Museum. We then walked through Hyde Park, Nottinghill, and a few other neighborhoods. I have never seen such fashion-forward people as I have here. Since Fashion Week is going on, there are tons of high profile people, including professional models all over the streets. We have yet to see anyone famous that we recognize, but who knows, maybe that will happen today. Andre and I spent like 45 minutes outside the museum yesterday, just watching all the cool fashion-y people walk into the fashion show tents. Today we are taking an open-roof bus tour through London (one of those where you can hop on and off at any time and then catch another bus). We will see the Buckingham Palace today, as well as the Tower of London and hopefully go for a ride on the London Eye. We are all so excited to be here. London is such a cool, sophisticated, clean, classy city. And it hasn't rained since we've been here! We've had good luck. All for now, talk to you all again later!

Amanda:
Hey guys!!! We're in London and its so incredibly awesome!!! I love this city so much...I feel so comfortable here and its clean and pretty and there are tons of interesting sites and monuments and buildings...the people here are super friendly..and people don't drive like freaking maniacs like in Dublin for example. I swear to God, Diane almost died like three times in that city via car :)
Michelle explains very well what we have done so far in this city in the above entry. I am so psyced for today. Today's touristy day, we get to see all the stuff that you can't come to London and not see. Should be pretty fun. We all shared some Spotted Dick yesterday and this shitty little Asian restaurant close to the hotel we're staying at. It was delicious actually :)
I'm just superpsyced to be here, London is pretty much my favorite city as of yet...its between London and Glasgow, I decided. But we'll see whats my favorite by the time we finish this little adventure. I'm really looking forward to Italy....
I miss you guys tons! I find that whenever we're bussing or something and I just have time to sit and think, I tend to have some pretty nostalgic moments and think about everybody back home and I'm wondering how ya'll are doing and what's going in all your lives, etc.
I hope everyone is well and, as usual, I'll have more news later!

Hopefully its not too painful staying at Holiday Inns along the way Amanda! I hope u stay at one that doesnt have a pool just so u can say 'Why dont u have a pool here, thats stupid'. And hopefully u guys see Pierce Brosnan or Hugh Grant. I have no reason for that though. It would just be a cool story, thats all.

Hi!
Hey y'all! This is Tim, Amanda and Michi's friend. Just wanted to holler at you and say that it's been cool reading your blog and seeing what you're up to and such. Life is pretty boring in Connecticut, but I keep pretty busy with all the schoolwork. When do you come back through NYC? Let me know, I'll try to meet up with you! Happy trails! Love and miss you both.

-Tim

Re: .
The only bad thing about staying at Holiday Inns is that it makes me think of you and everyone back home and makes me miss you guys even more!!! People are strict here though, we have not once obtained a single early check in, those son of a bitches :)

Re: Hi!
Hey Timmers!!!
That would be awesome if we could meet up with you. We probably won't have a ton of time to hang, but just seeing your little face for one millisecond would make Amanda happy! We'll let you know details later...

Re: Hi!
Hey TJB! Thanks for the comment! It's good to hear from you. can't believe you're in school right now, becoming a doctor. Craaaazy.
We will be in NYC on November 5 in the day time. I'm not sure if we'll have time in between airports to hang out yet but I really hope so. It would be really cool to see you in New York.
Europe has been a blast so far! At the moment, I'm in an internet cafe in London. Keep reading our blog cause we update it regularly. I'm gonna post more pictures right now too.
Love you and talk to you again soon!
Michi
