Saturday we went to the Manchester United Game...AMAZING!! We woke up wayyy too early, caught a 2 hour train ride out to Manchester and had so much fun! Being with all out BC friends at such a huge sporting event, I couldn't help but feel a little at home like I was at a BC football game. We went to a great pub called the Trafford, right next to Old Trafford where the Manchester United Red Devils play, and had beers with all the local fans. We had a few pints, learned a few cheers got a little rowdy, it was everything I ever wanted in a Premier League match. Not to mention the game itself! We had pretty decent seats right next to the Man U season ticket hardcore fan section, so we were right in the thick of all the awesome chants and cheers and boos. It was good and bad that Man U was playing the worst team in the league, because although it wasn't the best match ever, we got to see goals!! 5 goals! and the place went wild for every single one of them! Unbelievable once in a lifetime experience for me!
Some BC, some Wisconsin and some Irish
The scarves we're all wearing are a protest against the American owners of the team. They weren't protesting us Americans..just the owners, and the scarves were free so why not?!
This is the Tower Bridge of London...kinda famous. We saw this and did a tour of it, went up and walked across the walkway. Pretty amazing views! We saw London Bridge too..pretty lame if you ask me, looks like a normal bridge with a sign on it, this one is better trust me!
Below is one of the "guards"/greeters at the Tower of London which holds the crown jewels and stuff. The boys didn't want to go in because they had seen it before, and we didn't really have time, but I was dying to see all the pretty DIAMONDS!
Okay so that's part 1 of a very longggg trip! Sorry its taking so long, to post I'm still catching up on sleep!
