Hello, London!

Well, we made it to London today! I am doing this on my nook and do not have a lot of time to update, but I thought I would just do a brief hello from the UK :) We went to Madrid last night and shopped and explored the city a little bit, and then spent the night in a hostel. I was not feeling the greatest yesterday though. I think my stomach had disagreed with something I ate. But anyways, it was still super fun in Madrid. Except our airport bus was at 5:10am so we had to get up at 4:30!! Our flight went smoothly, and I mostly just relaxed and dozed. After we got off the plane, we needed to take a bus to downtown London. The driver told us he could mot take us because the bus was full and we only had general tickets, not reserved. It was hard to be mad at him though, because of his cute British accent!! The bus ride to downtown was 90 mins, and then we stopped and ate at Subway. It tasted so amazing. We then walked to our hostel, which was a super long walk, about an hour. But the weather was gorgeous and we stopped in a little park to relax and enjoy the sun. Our hostel has triple-bunk beds which is kinda cool. This evening we got dressed up an went to see Wicked at the Apollo Theater. It was SOOO good. Seriously, I do not even have words to describe it. We were sitting in the second row so it felt like we were inside of it and could really see the emotion of the actors. The costumes were intricate and beautiful, the set gorgeous, the dancing incredible, and the whole show was absolutely amazing. I loved it and am so glad we went. It is so weird to be in another different country. It is so different from Spain and the US, but it is sure nice to hear English everywhere!! Time for bed now. But I will try to update you all tomorrow!

Here's a fun picture from our afternoon/evening in Madrid! Masked ladies :)


  1. Wicked is my favorite. I think I've seen it every time I've been to NYC! I get to go in Omaha next May. It has the most amazing music. I'm glad you got to see it.

  2. Oh my gosh it was AMAZING in London. The emotion and intensity were crazy good!! So glad I bought that ticket :)
