Windsor Castle

Several years ago I had to chance to visit Windsor Castle and Canterbury. The flag on top of the tower shows that the Queen is there. Unfortunately, we didn’t see her. It was a far-fetched hope. Most of the afternoon was spent at Canterbury Cathedral and just wandering around town (my favorite thing to do when visiting a new city).

Unfortunately, I never really got a good picture of the cathedral. My trip to England was after my high school graduation (5 years ago), and I’ve learned to take much better pictures since then….

Here’s a few pictures from inside the cathedral…I didn’t have a very good camera…and once again, not very good at taking pictures for some reason back then…

I did manage to get a few pictures of some of the famous people who are “buried” here.

Although the Cathedral was really interesting, my favorite part of the day was when I went with a group of friends to a shop called Hotel Chocolat. Honestly, this place probably had some of the best chocolate I’ve ever had! We were lucky enough to visit the shop while they were doing a tasting of some truffles with amaretto. Of course, we had to show our IDs before we could try the chocolate…that was a first! I definitely recommend you try some of their chocolate if you’re every in Canterbury, or any other town that has one a Hotel Chocolat!
