When I left Denmark on the 18th, I was sad to leave, but also really excited to go to England! Lisa and I met up there, where we were staying with our friend Lucy for the first few days. Lucy conveniently lives pretty close to some cool things, so for the first couple of days she gave us a tour. We went to Windsor Castle briefly, and also to Oxford, where Lucy goes to school. It was awesome to get an insider tour and see some of the places where Harry Potter was filmed. This is the Harry Potter infirmary!
We also had some really great food while we were there. I love English pub food, so I was really excited to have pie, fish and chips, and mushy peas. The best thing I had was a mint and lamb pie in Oxford.
After Oxford, we went to stay with our friend Mariska for a few days, and she showed us around London. Even though I had already done a lot of the touristy things the last time, it was still a lot of fun to do them again. The London Eye is definitely worth doing more than once. It has a great view of the city.
We also went to Westminster Abbey, Trafalgar Square, the National Gallery, and Covent Gardens, and walked around a lot. It was really good to just wander around and enjoy the city because London is one of my favorites. And there were lots of Christmas markets, so I had a little bit of Denmark to keep me from missing Copenhagen too much :)
