Before making it to Africa we spent the day in London as we had a 12-hour layover. Initially, I wanted to head back and check out Westminster Abbey and St. Paul’s Cathedral. We were able to tour Westminster Abbey a few years back when we were in London but had to skip St. Paul’s because of time constraints. Unfortunately, we arrived in London on a Sunday and both cathedrals were closed to visitors. We wound up heading to the Tower of London instead – not a bad fall back plan and a place we enjoyed the first time through.
Last year, when we visited Paris one of the highlights for me was seeing the upper chapel in Sainte-Chapelle. The stained glass in this magnificent church is world renowned and it is obvious to see why. The picture doesn’t even do it justice – it is a sight you must see to believe!
