And then he came over the hill and the little boy was so happy!

This morning we treated ourselves to breakfast out. It seemed like the thing to do on our last full day in Europe. We found a place with a sweet deal and ate like the Brits would (except without the Heinz beans):

Next we headed back to Oxford Street to finish up our shopping…there were still plenty of stores to hit! However we really only ended up making more purchases in Primark…but it was cool to walk the famous shopping area anyways. After a coffee break at lunch time we hopped on the undergroud. While waiting at the metro stop we saw another celebrity! This time we got a picture with him:
That’s Henry VIII for those of you that can’t just recognize him like we can.

The underground brought us out a place where we could use the crosswalk…not very exciting sounding…until we point out that it was outside this place:
and on this road:
and inspired these photos:

If you haven’t got the references yet, well you’re either very young or completely uneducated in music. That is the crosswalk that the Beatles are pictured crossing on the cover of the Abbey Road album. Don’t we look just like them?

We ate our last real European meal in a pub in the road to Trafalgar Square. It was a delicious meat pie each:
Then we wandered the streets to Trafalgar Square and past Parliament, Big Ben & the London Eye. We tried to take it all in because it is home tomorrow!

Until Justine gets to see her little sister – approx 29 hours

    PS i wish i was special enough to merit a countdown to hang out time.

    PPS stalking Longbottom….typical. i am not surprised at all.


  2. I am Mom P – aka Bev – and obviously, Kristin’s Mom. And Justine’s favorite aunt – ok, I can only say that at this moment as I bought her a lot of red wine in Italy. 🙂

    I am so very proud of the two of you – the way you travelled confidently and made the most out of this most wonderful opportunity. We have all shared in your experiences and learned so much from you – and about your knowledge, maturity and your rock-solid friendship. Not to mention all the laughs you have given us while we read your blog. Love you both so much!!!


  3. FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!!

    And I’m sister K, Alexa. Sister of Justine and Kristins awesome and favorite cousin!

    And I must say that I got a little sad reading this blog knowing its done. And maybe it was also because its only like 29 hours until I get to see you two!


  4. I’m Brad K, Justine’s dad and Kristin’s favorite uncle or maybe second favorite, it depends on who read’s this.
    It’s hard to believe that you girls have been dreaming about this for years and to know that after all that planing and hard work to save your money, it’s has almost come to an end. When you girls get older and are living in the senior’s home, all you’re going to have is memories. And you will be able to tell your grandkids some great stories.
    It’s nice to look back at your adventure to Europe and see all the experiences you two have shared together, the closer you have become. And to know that half way across the world, you still take care of each other. Weather it’s making a grill cheeze sandwich or carrying your cousin across the cobble stones.
    Thanks for writing the blog alomost everyday, I learned so much about other countries, thanks to the two of you. This really makes me want to travel and see the world.
    Life is short and I’m glad that you girls did this when you had the chance.
    Where are you off to next?
    I’m going to miss the blog.
    Proud of the two of you.
    Love you both.


  5. Ageed Auntie Debbie! I’m Sister P, aka Kris’ sister and Beany’s cousin. I will miss my nightly blog post to read on my phone as I crawl into bed 🙂 Can’t wait to see you girls!


  6. I’m Nicole, aka Nikki, and I’ve known Kristin since she was 5, and became close friends and fellow hobbits in grade 9! I was so happy to see such regular inspiring and thoughtful blog posts almost every day. It made me feel like I was in Europe right beside the two of you 🙂 Safe travels home, luck and love, can’t wait to see where you’re off to next!!


  7. I’m Kristin… aka the other half of Kristin squared. Yes, nerdy I know… but half of Kristin squared is an engineer, so we just can’t help being nerdy sometimes as a whole.


  8. I am Mom K – Emily – Justine’s Mom. Just to let you know that I am having a little cry while writing this. I am so proud of the 2 of you! Thank you for entertaining us and filling our heads with much history for the last 4 months. Can’t wait to see you !!!!! Love you both lots and lots ! xoxoxoxox
