What a day. It was our last full day in London, but I checked off something that has been on my bucket list for years.
Finally, I crossed Abbey Road, replicating the epic album cover that is one of my favorites and from my favorite band of all time.
But first, we began our day at the British Museum, where I got to view artifacts from something else I’m obsessed with — Ancient Egyptology.
It was so incredible to view the Rosetta Stone and think about its significance.
But we only had a little over an hour to tour the museum, which is certainly not enough to view the massive collection. I’d love to go back someday, but I did see some pretty cool stuff while I was there.
After the museum, we pretty much made a beeline to Abbey Road, which is a bit out of the way but a must see for diehard fans like me. I pretty much freaked out thinking that I was walking on the site of an epic album cover, and I got to see the recording studio where the Beatles recorded. I’m the kind of overly obsessed Beatles fan who knows every little detail about them. Today, my dream came true. Now I only need to visit Liverpool.
And my favorite Beatle is Paul McCartney, who happens to live just a short walk away at 7 Cavendish Avenue (yeah, that’s the extent of my obsession with the Beatles…I know their current addresses).
So I got to see Paul McCartney’s house and freak out a lot.
After that, I had to calm down a bit and then we headed to Shoreditch to do some shopping and see some really cool street art.
We had our final group dinner at Zaza’s, an Indian restauraunt near our hotel.
It’s hard to believe this was the last full day of our trip and that we’ll be leaving tomorrow. I can’t believe how much fun I’ve had with the great people I’ve been able to spend this week with.
