If I Could Go Anywhere

There are a ton of places I want to visit someday. I feel as though with every year of my life my "bucket list" of places where I want to travel seems to get longer and longer. It's almost impossible for me to pick just a single place to go.

Lately though, I have been on a London kick lately. Maybe because half of what I find awesome comes from Great Britain. Sherlock, Mary Poppins, Downton Abbey, Jane Austen novels, Doctor Who, The Beatles, Shakespeare, Harry Potter... you get the gist. Even beyond that though, there's so much history there along with culture. Several people have told me I would love London for all of the theatre and the history.


Also, they speak English. So... not having to learn a new language would be a plus.

How amazing would it be to see The Globe Theatre where all of those historic plays were first performed? It would take everything in me to not jump up on the stage with a sword and try to learn how to stage fight and randomly burst into sonnets and soliloquies.

Or hang out at Buckingham Palace and wait for royalty to come out? I mean... William is married but Harry is still available, right? He's gotta come out of there at some point if I stand outside long enough.

No, I'm not a stalker. Why do you ask?


Then there's the Tower of London. SO MUCH WENT DOWN THERE! It would be super creepy I think, but also awesome.

Then of course, there would be going to Kingscross Station and posing at Platform 9 3/4. Because... obviously.


Westminster Abbey is a MUST. So many historical figures, as well as writers!, are buried there, and it's absolutely beautiful. 


I also would need to go have a proper tea at some point. I'm not really a tea drinker, but in London I'll make myself be one.


Okay... I'm going to start gushing. Let's be honest, I'd probably visit every single place where anything British happened ever (real and fictional) and pretend I'm the people in the stories. Guess I better go practice my British accent...

  6. London is great and I had a geek out just like you, when I went last month. The speaking English thing is a great advantage. I can only recommend going to the Evesong at Westminster Abbey, because you get in for free if you're there for the service.
