Travel Diaries: Tenby, Wales

Gorgeous beach in Tenby, UK

Adventures in London

We safely made it back from Scotland! Luckily we didn’t lose anyone along the way. I’ll get to that, but since I’m behind I’ll go back to our time in London and tell you some of my favorite memories there. After a couple of nights in Hayes we moved into Victoria, which is a gorgeous…
