July Trip to England Pics

Dear Friends,
This past summer, I visited and traveled through England as part of a summer study abroad program through my university.  I visted Oxford, London, Stratford, Bath, Salisbury and Stonehenge. What an amazing experience. Contrary to popular belief, the weather for the most part was clear and beautiful, aside for some unusual chilly days and I tried some of the best food I have ever had. Interestingly, my initial trip to London jumpstarted my transition into eating more and more vegetarian cuisine. I found that I only had chicken to or three times, no red meat and had fish about four to five times--> Fish & Chips :-).

Below are some photos I would like to share with you of my first trip ever to Europe. I hope to return again soon!

  1. Wow, what a fun time!! Such great photos!
    Following from the hop!

  2. I have an orange Tabby just like yours, her name is Bridget. Is yours a little "dickens" like mine? She is a year old and she is so curious and nosey and gets into everything. It's like having a toddler. I love her though. I have pictures of her on my blog somewhere. I am following you through the blog hop also. You are welcome to come follow mine too.
