In April, I had the amazing opportunity to travel to London for 8 days with my family. Before leaving, we made plans to do our best to visit everything that we possibly could in the time that we had there. We were all over the city, only taking breaks to rest our feet or sleep. We visited St. Paul’s Cathedral, Hyde Park, Buckingham and Kensington Palaces, Harrods and so many other places.
I am also not ashamed to admit that I tried to adopt the English accent. It’s easy to get carried away over there – by the end of the trip I think I had it down pretty well. Now, I am sure that if I tried it out on a local, they would have told me I was crazy!
On the trip I learned that I have an interest buying things that are just not necessary. For example, I came back with three pens, a planner, a paperweight, a keychain, too many coffee mugs, and many more things that will most likely never leave my bedroom. But darn it… I will have those souvenirs for the rest of my life, and THAT is what matters.
When I came back from my trip, my coworkers wanted to hear all about my adventures. Someone suggested that I pull together a blog with some cool images from my trip. When flipping through my phone, I made the joke that I could make a blog post out of the embarrassing amount of selfies I took. In true Schaefer fashion, what I thought was a joke ended up being a reality (you have to be careful what you say around here). So here it is. Makes you feel like you’re in England, right?
