In order to get a taste of lots of different places, and letting someone else do all the work, we booked a 15 day European Tour.
First stop, England!
Kings Cross station and Platform 9 3/4 (from the Harry Potter series) was definitely on the list of places to visit.
And Buckingham Palace.
Look, Big Ben.
And a red double decker bus.
After meeting up with our tour group, we crossed over the English Channel at the Cliffs of Dover.
And had a truly awful English breakfast aboard the ferry. Some terrible scrambled eggs, limp bacon, baked beans... Bring on some delicious french pastries!
