We'll be going at the end of December during New Years. With all the Olympics excitement and TV specials about Great Britain, I've been psyching myself up for this trip. We're also hoping to take a side trip to Paris too, which hopefully won't be too much of a language barrier hassle. The only French I remember from my year of French in junior high was the phrase I used the most in class:
"Puis-je aller aux toilettes?"
which roughly translates as:
"Can I go to the bathroom?"
Tomorrow I'll probably update on how I'm doing with my summer to-do list, and perhaps I'll start writing my London to-do list.... any suggestions?
I'll leave you with a cool pic I found on Reddit of the London Eye:
