A Trip to England

I’ve just returned from a 10-day trip to England (which explains my lack of posts recently) and I thought I would share some pictures of what I did there.

Stratford-upon-Avon, Shakespeare’s hometown, was absolutely lovely. I am obsessed with English architecture in general, but the Tudor-style houses were especially amazing, transporting you to another time.

This tavern dates back to 1470, making it the oldest in Stratford!

1It was definitely a magical place and you could buy almost anything related to Shakespeare: cookies, magnets, calendars, etc. One of my favorites were the erasers with the quote “Out, damned spot” from Macbeth.

It wasn’t my first time visiting London, but it never ceases to enchant. Although we only spent a day there and weren’t able to see all the major tourist stops, it was still great because we had already seen those anyways. We went to the Ripley’s Believe It or Not Museum (2 for 1 with any train ticket!) and wandered the streets of London.

Knightsbridge, where Harrod’s is located, is perfectly picturesque.

You know what they say, when you’re tired of London, you’re tired of life…

Although its residents don’t seem to appreciate it much, Birmingham is a lovely place to visit. The city center is a buzzing place where you can find all kinds of shops and restaurants and the redbrick buildings add to its atmosphere.

On one of the rainier days, my sisters and I made Argentinian empanadas. It was our first time making them and they turned out quite well! (Although our moms’ are still a hundred times better…)

Back home! Although the heat here is unbearable, I was missing the sunny beach days and wearing dresses every day. Till next time, England!
