The last stop on our trip...

was to England! We arrived at our final destination The Langton House in Windsor.

It was a long trip from Brugge to get there but we still had the evening to explore Windsor.
We walked around the town, saw the Windsor castle from the outside but never did go inside it. It is still a working castle that the Queen will sometimes stay at.

I love ferris wheels so I talked Chris into riding the "Windsor wheel" with me.

It was at sunset and just beautiful seeing the city and castle from above.

On our last day we took it easy in Windsor with a short walk over to Eton to check out the famous Eton college. We learned that the Princes of Whales went to high school here.Eton College, often referred to simply as Eton, is a Britishindependent school for boys aged 13 to 18. All the pupils board. It was founded in 1440 by King Henry VI as "The King's College of Our Lady of Eton besides Wyndsor".

There is a beautiful park called the "long walk" with a great running path. We, however were too tired to run by this point and just chilled out in the park with a picnic and our books.
The kids there are still in school until mid July, here they are enjoying a school break during the day. Listening to the little ones speak with English accents was so cute!
