IT'S MY FIRST....

STAMP!

We made it to London and I received my first stamp on my passport. It only took me 59 years, 8 months and approximately 10 days!

Long flight, lots to share with you when I get home or when I have more time. Did do The Original Bus Tour in the cold, wind and rain yesterday! I was going to do it again today alone, since Mark went to Finland today, but it's raining again so I will just grab a cab to Harrods and shop today! Tomorrow should be about 72 and sunny so I will do the bus tour then :)

As you can see I did get up close and personal with Buckingham Palace so I thought I would share the famous balcony where several kisses have been shared with the world. I have to admit I was thrilled to be there, in real life, and I had tears in my eyes. (surreal)

I'm so excited for you!!! Wow! Buckinham Palace!
I decide which thing I would be more excited for: Buckingham Palace or getting a passport stamped.

Have a blast! I'll be watching for your next post with eager anticipation.

So excited to hear you're there! And, I agree...a day of shopping is always the best thing to do in the rain!

Do it all...and enjoy it! Blessings as you travel!

Glad you made it! The bus is great but I agree it's not much fun in the rain when you have to sit in the bus! Enjoy your day at Harrods. I never went which makes me sad:(

So glad you arrived safely. Praying for your safe return also.
It brings back wonderful memories for me and one of the things I loved was the history and the architecture! Harrods was fun too :) Enjoy --every moment! :)

How wonderful to see you made it to England! But why did you get a stamp? I never get a stamp when I go to London (she says poutingly, wanting a stamp in her passport now)
