The second Karon Eurotrip was an overwhelming success. This year, we were joined by two very special guests, our Aunt Sister- holder of an advanced degree in Elizabethan British History, and Rosie’s fiancee Doug. I will break some highlights into two posts.

Notable activities included: a tour of the Tower of London, walking tours of the Westminster neighborhood and of places that were bombed during the Blitz, a visit to the Churchill War Rooms, and a significant amount of time spent in pubs.

Right: The time that Evey was responsible for getting us to the Victoria and Albert Museum, and instead we took a bus to the Victoria and Albert Pub on the outskirts of the city.
