After settling into my program of “SPEA in London,” I decided to go see one of the better known “touristy” experiences. This is one that every traveler must see and that’s the Tower of London. Being a huge fan of medieval history as a kid, almost all things in London grab my attention. But this small village really does set itself apart from all the rest. Its history alone, from kings and queens to its role in World War II, made the Tower jaw dropping. Everywhere you look, you feel like you are a part of Great Britain and its history. From the incredible crown jewels, to the bone wrenching torture devices, there truly is something for any visitor to enjoy.
