We made the most of our last day in London. Walking through the gates of Lord’s, we were ready for an extensive tour of the home of cricket. The view of the pitch from the Long Room, the Players’ Change Rooms with their detailed honour boards and the actual Ashes were of great interest to the boys but the highlight was the pod shaped Media Centre.

After traveling for 30 hours the boys fully embraced the Dublin experience today. The shock of 10 degrees and a brisk wind was mostly welcomed after being cooped up in cabins for so long. Following our check in at Jacob’s Inn, the boys embarked on a walk past Trinity to Grafton St. Armed with their 10 Euros they were ready to barter for the best ba
