Anyway, I had to rush because I got at the museum at 2:30 and it closed at 6:00, so I didn't get to spend as much time as I'd have liked to, so I'll most likely be back sometime.
Other than that, I've been working on my fall break plans. I booked a flight to Dinard, France on the friday before break and will be heading up to Cherbourg to stay for the night. That's about all I've managed to do so far though. I wanted to plan everything, but now I'm starting to think I should just go to France and wing it. I did buy three Eyewitness Travel books, for France, Switzerland and Germany and they're all pretty helpful in figuring out what to do and how to go about doing it.
Two weekends before fall break I'm going with Andrew and Juliette to Grenoble, France, where we intend to go southward through the French, or Swiss, Alps down along the coast of Provence, or the Côte d'Azur, making a few stops along the way and ending at Marseille, where we'll fly back to London.
So, I'm cutting southern France out of my fall break plans for now. I'll most likely stay in Normandy for a couple of days, then to Paris for another two or so days. Then I'll head to Switzerland again and into Bavaria where I really want to visit Schloss Neuschwanstein. But I still need to really look into what I want to do in Switzerland and Germany.
Speaking of Germany, I booked a train through a German line today, and the site and all the interfaces I had to use to sign up were all in German, so hopefully I didn't mess anything up.
I decided to walk a bit instead of taking the tube directly from the Imperial War Museum to the flat. I walked over Westminster Bridge, past Parliament and the Abbey, and took the tube back from St. James's Park to Paddington Station. I'm only writing this so these two pictures appear to have a purpose.
On a separate note, lien du jour.
