While in Madrid this past summer, we took a stadium tour of the Estadio Santiago Bernabéu, home to Real Madrid. It is the most grand and beautiful stadium that I have ever set foot into! The trophy room contains the football boots of all the current Real Madrid players, two of which are pictured here.

The symbol of England, the Three Lions. This is one set of gates that lead to Buckingham Palace. It was a madhouse, I was surprised that I was able to get a clear shot of anything!

We were in London just after the 2012 Summer Olympics and during the Paralympics. The bridges along the Thames River were lit up and I was able to finally grab a non-blurred picture. Note to self, next time we travel abroad, bring the tripod!!
