We’re BaaaAAAAck!

After a fabulous week and a half in England, we have finally returned to our homeland.

We spent most of our waking moments with our friends Katie and Peter. We adore them, and they were gracious enough to spend all of that time with us. We are so grateful.

We travelled all over the country. First London. We hit all the sites– Notting Hill, Greenwich, Parliament, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, the London Eye, and so so much more.

Then we went south to Shoreham, near Kent, a small countryside village. We stayed with Katie’s parents and took long walks through farms and drank a yummy bear in ancient pubs.

The pub. Established in 1500s

We stopped in Oxford for a day, exploring the land of great minds.

Harry Potter hallway

Christ Church College dining hall…but more importantly, inspired Hogwarts dining hall.

Door that inspired C.S. Lewis’, “The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe”

Also known as “Bird and a Baby” by the Inklings– C.S. Lewis, J.R. Tolkein, Charles Williams, and more who met there as a writing group every week.

Then, we headed up to Leeds, where Katie and Peter live. It is so special to see someone’s home. Where they do life. We went to church with them and met their Rwandan housemate.

Proper Tea

For our anniversary (two years!), we took the train to a small village, Hebden Bridge. We watched the soccer game, England v. France, in the local pub, went for a nice walk through the village and woods, and roamed the sweet shops throughout.

It was an amazing trip. With only 6 weeks until medical school starts, we are thankful we have got to getaway and be with some great people.
