Welcome to Katie's Travel Blog. This is really Jenny-doesn't-get-to-travel blog where I (mom) keep track of Katie's adventures so I can have some vicarious enjoyment! Here's a look at what one globally-aware kid from little Santa Cruz, California gets to do these days if her mom's willing to keep working!

P2P Day 17: Righty-O Then, They're Off to London - Simply Brilliant!

Inside the London Eye.
They were on the move all day despite the rain, checking out the sights and sounds of London. Once again, the leaders save the day by posting a lot of great photos (see them below).

Actually Katie said today was kind of a dud - I have a feeling, as I read the copy below - that's because they saw things on the move rather than really getting to explore. I know she really wanted time to shop at Harrods. I doubt they had a second.

I sense a return trip coming.

That's Jessie with her.
Well that photo is stunning.
She called me from a Brazilian restaurant where I guess she got in trouble for ordering off-menu (do they not know this kid always orders off-menu? She's a total pain!). It looked like they were having a good time chatting and waiting for their food.

I messed up about the play - that's tomorrow night. They have a really full day tomorrow - it's their last day of the trip, then they stagger to the airport and fly home.

From the People to People Itinerary
This morning you will make your way to Buckingham Palace to view the precisely choreographed Changing of the Guard. Did you know that Buckingham Place is the official residence and principal workplace of the British monarch?

Discover London with a Blue Badge Guide - an expert on England's capital. Pass by sites, attractions and buildings often seen in the movies and which are world famous. See the royal palaces, the lions in Trafalgar Square, the magnificent Palace of Westminster, St. Paul's Cathedral, Tower Bridge and the most famous clock in the world, Big Ben.

Enjoy one of the most spectacular views of London from the world's tallest observation wheel, The EDF Energy London Eye. This astonishing 443 ft high ride provides a fantastic panoramic view of the city from 32 enclosed air-conditioned capsules. The height of the London Eye is the equivalent of 64 red telephone boxes piled on top of one another! WOW!

Tomorrow will be a long day so you may want to spend some time prepare for your flight and begin to pack your belongings.
