|Madeline and I at Trafalgar Square in London|
|Just a cool little sign in Puerta del Sol, but look how blue that sky is!|
|First experience with tapas, not too bad.|
|Hot chocolate and churros! The hot chocolate is much thicker than|
what we would consider hot chocolate but it makes it perfect for dipping
your churros into!
|The Royal Palace, which is the largest palace in Western Europe|
based on the number of rooms, which is 2,000. I guess that means the King
can have a lot of guest over!
|Templo de Debod, a gift from Egypt to Spain. There were|
parks surrounding it so we had a lovely picnic and then
headed over to take pictures of this. I'm afraid this might be the
closest I ever get to Egypt.
|Just some Madrid skyline. It was so beautiful and sunny that day!|
I am hoping I regained some color that I have lost while living in England.
|Plaza Mayor! Fun fact: this plaza has been home to numerous bullfights|
and executions during the Spanish Inquisition and was built in the 1600s
|Oldest restaurant in Europe. Seriously, they have the Guinness|
certificate in the window and have been serving food since
|For some reason this picture is on its side buuttt this is the Almundena|
Cathedral and on the other side of this is the palace!
|All of the street signs had pictures of what they described, which|
was very helpful for those of us with limited Spanish skills.
|Venus and Mars in Museo del Prado. They had tons|
of sculptures and I wish we could have spent more time there.
They also had two time periods that were free of charge for everyone
which was really nice as well.
|The pretty tree outside my window!|
|Just a building in Sixmilebridge but that vine thing|
is pretty cool!
|The Hostel we stayed at in Sixmilebridge/Shannon. It was named|
the Jamaica Inn and had palm like trees as part of the landscaping haha!
|Just chilling out with Oscar and Eduard Wilde in Galway|
|We stumbled upon this cathedral as we were walking around|
and the ceiling was absolutely beautiful!
|There were so many people busking on the market street!|
This guy was pretty good, and it turned out a pretty cool picture too.
|One of the many coffees I had on this trip. I am usually not the biggest|
coffee fan but it is starting to grow on me!
|We found real live Gypsies! So naturally I had|
to take a photo :)
|Had to stop and take a picture of these little guys!|
|Here is the first pub we went to in Galway for lunch, the King's Head.|
|Hooray for things from home!|
|Sooooo many stamps! haha|
|Sunflower seeds exhibit at the Tate Modern Museum|
|Picture of People looking at a picture of people looking at a picture ha|
|Me on the Millennium Bridge|
|Hooray for the London Eye!|
|Bridget, Kristin, and Myself on our way up to the top of the London Eye|
|Pretty London lights|
|The little bubble thing that we rode to the top of the eye in|
|This is a side view of the cathedral as we were walking towards it.|
P.S. Look at the huge whomping willow..Harry Potter is everywhere
in this country!
|A close up of the mixed materials used to build the exterior|
|Right as you walk in the front door|
|A mural on the wall of the whole process of building the Cathedral.|
