Before we headed to the airport for our flight home Robyn wanted to see the start of the changing of the guard.  We walked over to the front of Buckingham Palace and stayed about an hour, but we only caught the first part because we had to head to the airport.  We had a great vantage point and it was pretty cool to see at least part of the process. 

When we left on this journey 15 days ago we checked two bags and carried on three.  Now we were checking four bags and carrying on four  because of all the stuff that had been bought (keep in mind we had already shipped home a whole box of stuff 10 days ago).  We had to even buy an extra rolling duffle bag for all the souvenirs.  But besides all the trouble of schlepping the bags around Europe it had been an incredible trip.

It took us a long time to be able to get to Europe and we had a great time, but we are just about worn out and it will be good to get home.    We are already talking about making another trip in a couple of years as soon as we can afford it.

Welcome home, world traveller.

That's interesting; I don't remember which post it was, but you said something that made me think about how long the days are during the summer in Europe. I looked, and London is farther north (by about 150 miles) than the North Dakota/Canada border!
