It was amazing being able to go to so many famous places in England. However, I feel like we got to experience the real London when we were allowed to go out by ourselves in the evenings. For example, my friends and I found a New Year's Eve party, located in a World War II bunker, that was entirely 1940s themed. It looked as if we had stumbled upon a movie set. All throughout the night, we were surrounded by Londoners. For the first time during my trip, I no longer felt like a tourist. I was amongst people who lived there and I fully immersed myself in the culture. I believe that this program would improve by finding one or two, non-touristy, events to go to. Other than that, the trip was pretty much perfect.
