London!_I could live here…

Our Spring Break began in London, flying in from Verona, Italy.  It was such a relief to understand the language, though it was a downside that our conversations were being listened to.  :)  We all really loved London.  I was so suprised that Spring was blooming just as fast in England as it was in Tuscany.  Our favorite area was Convent Garden, the location of the best Fish and Chips place we found and some great little pubs mixed with residential and shopping.  One of the greatest highlights of the trip was going to the Snow Patrol concert at the O2 arena.  The place was packed, and the concert was the best one I’ve ever been to.  The architecture and culture of London was worth the trip for sure.
