Traveling Toms Tuesdays — September 30th, 2014

Hard to believe it is the last day of September! My school year is surely going by fast thus far. I have been thinking more and more about my trip to London because the study abroad applications are due this week for the spring break trips for 2015. I am applying to travel to Ghana over spring break for my city planning studio this year! Since I still have more Traveling Toms photos from London, I thought this would be a good week to do another post about a part of my trip.

This week’s Traveling Toms Tuesday is from my trip to Greenwich, England. On the sixth day of the trip we took a touristy boat ride to Greenwich. The boat ride was such a cool experience – I have plenty of pictures from that as well, so I could share that later in another post at some point. We ended up in Greenwich for about an hour or so before we had to get back to London for the evening. We all were disappointed that we did not get more time in Greenwich, but hey, just another excuse to go back someday! For those of you who do not know much about Greenwich, it is home to the Prime Meridian line at the Observatory (you read about that more here since I am no expert). We actually did not go to the Observatory because we were short on time and I believe it is expensive thing to do. We mainly walked around The Painted Hall, The Queen’s House, and some green space.

Here’s the two Traveling Toms photos I took at The Queen’s House

The Queen’s House

I actually had kind of died down on taking pictures at this point in the trip, which is why there are so few. The other reason is we were really only there for a short amount of time, again, we all wished we could have explored more! Plus, a lot of time was spent getting group photos in front The Queen’s House (which I cannot find at the moment). The Painted Hall was pretty cool. The art was amazing and it is stuff they you definitely do not see on a day to day basis, especially living in an American city. I remember I kept thinking about how artists don’t really do things like this anymore and how that is so strange to see the times change with art.

Have you ever visited Greenwich? What was your favorite part?
