Our first day in London was filled with new adventures and taking in quite a lot in a very short period of time. As soon as we got in and checked into our hotel, we rushed off to catch the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace. The streets were packed with people trying to catch a glimpse of the fanfare. Though we couldn’t get close enough to see the actual ceremony, we caught the band and the parade leading up to the castle. It was a great way to start our trip!
After we left the Palace we decided to hit up a pub and grab a bite to eat. This is where I discovered my new favorite obsession… PIMMS. For those of you who don’t know what this is, Pimms is a sweet liquor that is very popular in England. It’s light and refreshing with lemonade and fruit. So needless to say, as Dan tastes all of the cask ales, I’m indulging in this wonderful new drink!
More from us later! Time to get on the road again!
