England and more specifically London is home to many icons – entertainers, venues, historic sites, teams, etc. Over the past few weeks I’ve had a chance to experience some of them and two of the big ones are Wembley Stadium and Wimbledon. I decided to split these from the week recaps I did because I had a lot of photos to share and they deserve their own post –
Sure, it’s host to the FA Cup and plenty of Football events. It’s sister venue, Wembley Arena has also been used in all three Olympic games, but it isn’t the sports that I found as exciting here, it was the fact that Wembley has played host to some of the largest bands and getting to explore the venue, I could finally picture what it was like to hear Coldplay sing ‘Fix You’ to a crowd of 80,000. Honestly it was one of the most insane experiences of my life and also fun to see the ins and outs of the area (or at least some of it).
White uniforms and perfect grass. Even if you don’t enjoy tennis, you know Wimbledon. We toured the grounds and got to learn all about what makes this event one of the most recognizable. The grass is perfect (with good reason since a team of scientists count the individual pieces and test the density all the time) and the grounds are always evolving (they will blow the two new US stadiums out of the park in 2018ish).
