While I was in the UK I decided to venture into London with my brother and sis-in-law to visit the Natural History and Science Museums. To get there I had to ride on two of my least favorite modes of transport (train and tube)! Thankfully I was in good hands and, with my sis 'Sara' as tour guide, we all made it there.
One of the things I miss about the UK is the history and richness of the buildings. When I saw the Natural History for the first time it just blew me away. These photos really don't do it justice.
I love gargoyles and was fascinated with all the animal carvings that are carved into pillars and stone.
Definitely plan to revisit when I'm home next.
No trip home for me is complete without a visit to the center of Oxford not only for its shopping but quirky side streets, history and architecture.
Next and final post in the holiday series will be about my experience at a Falconry Center for my birthday.
