London ft. tour guide Emma and her super American group of travelers! Cue leopard print selfie stick!

Ciao bellas!! Back again to catch y'all up on life across the pond. Another week down and we did it! Our first excursion with Ryanair! (besides tickets being dirt cheap, everything else about them is just plain dirt) Early mornings, zero leg room, and this CRAZY rule about no coffee on the flights?! (cue not 1, but 2 being taken away from me before boarding). But that is besides the point. We ~touched down in London town~ with everyone in one piece, so there are no complaints here.

Now although London was a bit chillier than we had been #blessed with in Rome, we spent our rainy 36 hours in England to the very fullest. Highlights include fish and chips (missing that Maynard's seasoned sour cream right about now), Strongbo cider (wondering what we did without wine for the weekend? me too), and your classic English pub crawl in the ~hip~ neighborhood of Camden. Oh, and every sight you've ever wanted to see in London?? Took us 24 hours tops thanks to tour guide Emma. Big Ben? Check. London eye? I see you (lol). Telephone booth pic? Ben there, done that (ha).

Even just three days away from Italy, surrounded by native English speakers (and Starbucks), we sort of started to miss our little home sweet Rome. Although coming back to no wifi (yes AGAIN), was extremely frustrating, our program decided to treat us to a dinner, on them. Naturally we chose the restaurant where fettuccini alfredo was created, and honestly BRA-VO. Besides the food still being creamy and full of carbs here, I promise we are learning too!! Notice the form and accuracy of the boys modeling for us in the National Museum of Rome. Pure art I tell you.

Well... here's to another week down and another Ryanair trip, headed for Dublin, to look forward to this weekend (coffee will be chugged before hand, jokes on you this time flight staff). S/O to these familiar faces for making the traveling less intimidating and the culture shock less intense. Until next time... cheers to my PEOPLE, both here and back home. Feeling extremely blessed to have the ability to coordinate trips with friends studying around the world, yet still be missing family and friends in Minnesota/Wisconsin. Also for you people who read this blog crap for fun. S/O to you too. XOXO.

Love, Lucy
