European Holiday - London and Contiki

After the World Championships wrapped up in Rome it was time for my holiday!

I flew from Rome to London and spent 5 days at my friend’s house, and saw all the sights of Olde London Town. Went to Buckingham Palace, Kensington Palace, British Museum, Harrods, Tower Bridge, Shakespeare Globe, Big Ben, Tower of London, Camden Markets, Notting Hill, Oxford St, Westminster Abbey, Southbank, Covent Garden’s, Piccadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square and best of all Wicked at West End! I loved London, I had such a great time!

Next I was off on a 10 day Contiki tour. It started in London and travelled over the English Channel, then through Belgium, to Amsterdam in the Netherlands’, St Goar and Munich in Germany, Tyrol in Austria, Venice and Lake Como in Italy, Lucerne and Lauterbrennen in Switzerland and Paris in France. It was fast and furious but it was great. Met lots of lovely people and had an awesome time.

I did all the cliche things - drank beer in Germany, white water rafting in Austria, built a snowman in Switzerland and ate snails in Paris!
