One Month

It’s officially one month today: we’ve lived in London, dealt with the transition of moving, found a flat we call home, mastered survived public transport, and seen some pretty awesome sights.

London is amazing and intoxicating and the energy here is vibrant.

There is this beautiful combination of Old World and New World here where you can plan an outing to the largest occupied castle in the world {more on that later!} or just wander around randomly and have an equally intriguing encounter with this great city and its surroundings. We love it.

Today, we went to Windsor.

Private apartments of the Queen

Back Gardens and State Rooms

We got a deal on tickets and got to be a part of history, too! They just reopened The Round Tower for the first time in 30 years – it’s a trial run for August and September only – and we got to be in one of the groups.

Loved it. The view was unparalleled!

You can see all of the surrounding royal grounds, gardens, and park, as well as the Thames River Valley and London skyline. We took the train out there, packed a picnic lunch (yum!), and toured the castle – tower, state rooms, upper and lower wards, St. George’s and Lady Chapel {aka: Albert Memorial Chapel}. Followed it up with a quick jaunt through Great Park – The Long Walk to George III’s statue – and a look around the charming and picturesque town. I know why it’s the Queen’s favoured residence.
