[163/365] Wimbledon Championships from Henman Hill, All England Club, Wimbledon, London, United Kingdom

About a year ago today, I was on vacation in London. We headed to the All England Club in the London suburb of Wimbledon to watch the Men’s singles match between Andy Roddick and Andy Murray outside on the screen on Henman Hill. The very next day, I was in a room of fans watching […]

[63/365] London Eye & Big Ben, London, United Kingdom

Last summer, I was in London for the first time since my study abroad back in 2005. It was great revisiting and seeing London as a woman in the working world (and with a better camera!). I think it made me realize that while I’m older, I’m still the same person that loves exploring the […]

From within the Liverpool Train Station, the wide glass windows brought views of downtown buildings. That day, I walked around the station, taking photos of the tourists exploring the area and the locals on their way to work. The design of this window stood out.

Wimbledon Tennis Courts, London, United Kingdom

This was another photo from the beautiful grounds of Wimbledon right after the Andy Murray vs. Andy Roddick game ended. Spectators cleared Henmen Hill and dispersed into the Wimbledon store and off of the grounds. As we descended from the Hill, we could see one of the tennis courts used during the championships.

[day 6] Liverpool Street Train Station, London, United Kingdom

Europe is known for their elaborate train stations and this one was no exception. I’ve always been impressed by the excellent rail system that connects most points throughout Europe. This was a station close by Wendy’s new flat that was a hub for both the Underground and the long distance trains. This Liverpool Street station […]

[day 5] London by Night, London, United Kingdon

No trip to London can be complete without a stroll through the city by night. The sights in London light up and create reflections in the River Thames, the second longest river in the United Kingdom. In this photo, you can see the London Eye, a huge ferris wheel, as well as the Houses of […]
