I love these kinds of themed restaurants, especially (sort of)
small ones hidden away like treasures for all to find. :smile:

Loved your London touring, too. Thanks for sharing.

Our final day in London included a mix of attractions historic and more modern... It was really about getting as much in our day as we could, as the next day would be the start of the next leg of our trip, taking us far away.

Adam, years ago I lived in London, and wow has it changed! But ONE thing I'm so happy to hear is that Fortnum & Mason still offers the BEST AFTERNOON TEA IN TOWN! Am sooo glad you got to try it!
P.S. That evening shot of Big Ben is -- to revert to Brit speak -- BRILLIANT! =)

The Tower of London was the first official attraction I did when visiting London, I agree it's an amazing experience. Even if you only go to England for coasters, enthusiasts need to visit that place.

Following an incredible week in Paris and London it was time for the next leg of our trip to begin! We next embarked on an eleven night Transatlantic Cruise from Dover, England to New York City, USA! The cruise would be the longest I'd ever experienced and would bring us to a bunch of places we'd never been before... And with the Disney Magic as our floating hotel for these eleven nights, we had plenty of opportunity to enjoy some amazing cuisine, wonderful entertainment and more time to relax than we'd ever had on any vacation before!

Oh awesome! I've wanted to do one of those transatlantic cruises for a while now. So far it looks fantastic.

The next morning we woke up to a unique view as we docked on in the port of Cobh, Ireland. Many will know this port by its other name, Queenstown... Queenstown being famous as the final port of call for the RMS Titanic before it left for the ill-fated transatlantic crossing that so many know how it ended.

But Cobh (the original name of the port town and the reverted name post-Queenstown) is also a gateway port to Ireland and it is not far from Blarney Castle. I'd traveled through Ireland years earlier in high school and had visited Blarney once before--it was a highlight for me then, so I knew when we found out we'd be visiting Cobh as a part of our cruise that this would be something I could share with my wife. Just like I had ten years earlier, we climbed the steps and kissed the blarney stone. Plus this time around we had a chance to explore the grounds which were pretty neat!

The night ended with another excellent dinner aboard the Disney Magic and the first of many great variety acts that would keep us entertained over the coming four days of crossing the Atlantic Ocean.

Nice update! It's nice to see the Blarney Store is so sizable. I always pictured it being a tiny thing considering how puny Plymouth Rock is near me.
