RTW Trip – England

RTW Trip – England

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, everybody! This time of year is best spent with friends and family so it’s appropriate timing for my England post. England is one of the few countries Arcadiy and I had both already visited before we started dating. It was a big priority to make a stop there during this trip, in spite of that fact, because I have family in Bournemouth that I wanted to visit while we were in their area of the world. Arcadiy also has friends in London that let us stay with them for a few nights while we were in town.


Since we had each been to London before we had different sightseeing priorities. We decided to do some sightseeing separately – a first during our trip! I decided to wander by the River Thames and visit the Tate Modern.

London was in the middle of a big heat wave while we were there, so folks were finding ways to cool down.

We spent our last day in town walking around Regent’s Park.

I was last in Bournemouth in 2009, shortly after graduating college. It was my first time outside of North America and also the last time I had seen my overseas family. Since it had been so long, our time in town was dedicated to spending quality time with my family instead of taking pictures. That said, it’s a beautiful city with sandy beaches that are worth a visit.

I did manage to snag a picture of one family member.
