Drew and Alaina's Whirlwind Trip of Europe
Ahhhh London! It's been quite nice. We arrived to a warm welcome from Deena and Adam, and were wisked off yesterday on a whirlwind tour with Adam and his friend Becky as our tour guides. Adam was a history major at the University here so he made for a perfect tourguide. We covered about 1/4 of the city in 7 hours. Walking the whole time! We started in Hyde park, which is beautiful, and ended in Soho. Today we had a wonderful time at St. Pauls, it is breath taking, literally and figruratively. We climbed the 530 steps to reach the top and see the view of London. By the time we made it back down our legs were shaking and we were both out of breath (guess we should have trained a little harder before we left the States). We wish we had longer as there is so much more to see, but we are off to Paris in the morning so the rest of London will have to wait for the next trip.
