London

In July, Ross and I were lucky enough to visit some friends from San Diego in London. IMG_1595 In January of 2014, my family visited London, when, though very cold, we managed to hit many of the typical tourist stops. IMG_1577So this time around, we simply wandered around this marvelous, bustling city and attempted to soak in every minute we possibly could (With the exception of visiting the Imperial War Museum)!
IMG_1591 We had an amazing time viewing sites like Shakespeare’s Old Globe… IMG_1606… and the pub Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese, where numerous literary figures have passed through, including Mark Twain, Charles Dickens, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle!IMG_1649
London, you never disappoint! Until next time! Xx

Imperial War Museum

The Imperial War Museum was one of my favorite stops in London!
IMG_1564 It was an absolutely beautiful day, and though this building has a classic and wonderful facade, the inside was quite sobering. IMG_1572 The First World War, which is tragically followed by the Second, is captured with exhibits of uniforms, memorabilia, and an interactive trench experience.

Although it is frequented by thousands of tourists a year, it does a wonderful job of prohibiting war from slipping into an idealistic realm.

Instead, we are reminded of the tragedies of war so that in learning of the past, we avoid mistakes and create a better future.
