Today was the first day that we actually got to sleep in and wouldn't ya know that we awoke bright and early! I guess our time clocks are set on early mode. Anyway, we got ready, grabbed some breakfast, and headed out to the Charles Dickens' Museum. As soon as we were outside, we noticed large, dark clouds overhead and everyone carrying umbrellas. So we decided to stop by Camden Town and Market to purchase large umbrellas before starting the day. Luckily, moments after we bought them, it began to down pour. Our umbrellas kept us dry though, so we continued on our way to the Dickens' Museum.
At the museum, we watched a very informative video about Dickens' life and works, we toured the four floors of the house, and purchased many teaching materials and supplies from the gift shop. All in all it was a successful trip and we did not get lost on the way!
Upon leaving the museum, we stopped by Caffe Nero, the England Starbucks, which is our new favorite coffee shop and replenished our bodies with some much needed caffeine.
We spent our evening out by visiting a few souvenir shops, eating dinner at Planet Hollywood, and walking across the Waterloo Bridge while taking photos and aweing at the beautiful view of the city.
