My mom decided to come see London and help me pack up to move for two weeks before I left. I think she also wanted to collect me, knowing that I would much rather keep travelling than return to my boring Pennsylvania hometown for the summer.
As soon as I picked her up at the airport she remarked how "Briticized" I looked. I had gotten so used to living in London that I forgot how crowded the tube seems at first and what it is like to not know the difference between British coins.
-Afternoon tea at Soho Secret Tea Room twice. (Vegetarian alert: Soho Secret Tea Room and Coach and Horses pub beneath it are both vegetarian!)
One of the first sights we saw was Giant's Causeway, somewhere that has been on my bucket list for ages! It was amazing!
the bridge, while my mom took photos.
We then took a bus to the ferry dock and boarded a ferry for Cairnryan, Scotland. The ferry was massive! It was more like a cruise ship. I saw later that that fare alone was about triple of what we paid for our entire tickets...I'm not sure how we got so lucky. After that it was time for a fifteen hour coach ride to London!
Our last two nights in London, we had two nights out in store. First was the Of Monsters and Men concert that I bought tickets to ages ago, hoping that I could find a friend and go. My mom kindly agreed to tag along, but ended up loving it so much that she's considering becoming a groupie! This was the second time seeing them in concert, the first was at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado and they were just an amazing.
