May 5, 2015 – Our last full day in the UK – and we had it packed!!!
I have been (and still am) a fan of Downton Abbey. In 2015, Highclere Castle (fictional Downton Abbey) was only open to the public a total of fewer than 30 days to visitors. We were there during one of those days, and tickets were limited and first come first serve. I was not going to miss this!!!
It was everything I had hoped it would be – but surprisingly smaller in person than on TV – strange, right?
After visiting Downton Abbey (and meeting the Countess of Carnarvon herself), we headed to Windsor to visit the quaint town and Windsor Castle. Oh my goodness!!!! I could have stayed for hours but it closed at 4pm and we got there around 2:30 – so we hustled!!!
Windsor was amazing to explore and I can’t wait to go back!!!
Also – today is Charlotte’s birthday!!! Fourteen years old!!! I can’t even believe it!! And my “boy” is officailly a senior!!!
