London, Oxford and Bath

In the summer of 2017 we visited London (my first time) and also ventured to Oxford and Bath.

On our first day in London we walked from the Houses of Parliament to Trafalgar Square and then wrapped up the day with a pint in Covent Garden.

With this being my first trip to London, we hit many of the big sights.

From London, we took the Great Western Railway to Bath. The city was quaint with beautiful architecture and a historic Roman bath house built in 60 AD.

From Bath we visited Oxford and enjoyed its cozy pubs, historic colleges and punting on the Avon.
