Jacob's Wish to go to London

Jacob, a 17-year-old from Pensacola who enjoys art and tennis, wished to go to London, England to experience the historical sites of the charming metropolis.

While on summer break before his senior year of high school, his wish came true. To start things off the right way, a limousine picked up Jacob and his parents to take them to the airport for their flight across the pond. Once in London, they did an impressive job seeing as many historical attractions as possible while having a fulfilling experience, taking a break from their daily routine. The first day of the trip was spent enjoying The Original London Bus Tour’s double-decker coach. He also checked out famous locations such as The Globe Theatre, Buckingham Palace, the Tower of London, Windsor Castle, and Westminster Abbey. Some of the trip was spent in the countryside exploring ancient Stonehenge and the birthplace of Shakespeare, Stratford-upon-Avon. While visiting Shakespeare House at Stratford-upon- Avon, the museum staff performed a special scene from Romeo & Juliet exclusively for Jacob and his parents. Jacob’s love for tennis inspired a trip off the beaten path to see the famous Wimbledon tennis complex. Jacob’s wish to go to London will be a source of memories and enrichment for years to come.

Thank you Trusted Choice and The Fessler Agency for making Jacob's wish come true!
