Well folks, I hope you’ve enjoyed this little photo tour of our trip to the UK. We had an amazing time, and I cannot wait to come back (Especially to you, Edinburgh.) These are just a few of the photos I took while we were there (fairly certain my camera has about another 470 which I chose not to include, for your benefit.)
