I had always wanted to visit the UK but the flights have always been a restricting factor because it is so dang expensive to fly over. In October of 2012 I had been searching around for our next big adventure. We like to travel in April because it is usually the most cost-efficient time to go. I played around and discovered that our airline miles that we had been saving up would be enough to cover almost all flights to and from the UK. .
So then the planning began! We originally wanted to just do London and play around in Ireland but it turned into London, Edinburgh (Scotland), and then play around in Ireland. Though the weather wasn't the most cooperative (as apparently the UK tends to be), we really enjoyed ourselves.
As for London, we didn't have anything on the agenda except to wander around town and soak it in. The only thing I really wanted to do was check out the Globe Theatre because I've been obsessed with it since high school.
Here are a few of our favorite shots from London. I'll post with the other destinations in separate posts so that there aren't too many photos in one post. I also instagrammed random shots from the city.
