My first trip to the British Isles
We stayed in our first B&B, a small room with two beds. There was little heat and even less space in the charming room and a bathroom with limited hot water, but I remember the stay fondly as it was my first European B&B stay. The British food stood up to is reputation, lets just leave it at that. We wanted to hit all of the iconic things, double-decker buses, London taxi cabs and all the famous stops.
We started at the Tower of London; I am always amazed by a bustling city with a sprawling castle in the middle. It was Easter weekend and the line wrapped around one wall of the castle and down the sidewalk. But our London City Pass told us to go to the “Will Call” window. We walked past all the folks waiting in a misting rain, we showed our pass and were immediately ushered to the front of the line. The $70 US we spent on the pass was worth every penny. We got to see Yeoman Wardens, the White Tower, the Crown Jewels, Medieval palace and the ravens while the line outside continued to grow.

We actually found of display of just heads...
I don't know if they fit these bodies.
