#3: London

Wow, I have a lot of catching up to do, more like catching everyone else up! :P
(Still talking about spring break.....)

In London, I got to see Emma! Which was the highlight of the trip, obviously. It was SO good to see her after being apart for several months. We had lots of catching up to do in so little time.


As soon as I got into town, I had fish n chips! :) Also, London has the real Diet Coke, and not Coca Light. Our first meal was heavenly.



My favorite part of the trip was going to the Borough Market. I could easily spend hours in that market. I loved seeing all the local vendors and farmers come together at the gigantic farmer's market. While I was walking around, I purchased a chunky-chocolatey brownie (of course), English cheese and chips called a Rauclette, some Chai Tea to bring home and a canvas tote to support the local artist.






I forgot how amazing my trip to London was!

I went to the Victoria & Albert Museum, which was SO much fun! One of my favorite museums by far. I got to see different art, costumes, pottery...you name it! from different countries all around the world. It was also cool to see the industrial things, such as items we use today. The transformation of a Sony Walkman to a Apple iPod....and just old school things that brought back memories!



I even got the chance to ride the London Eye and get a spectacular view of the city!

I ended up doing so much in the short 48 hours. I went to Harry Potter's Platform 9 3/4, Buckingham Palace, Gordon Ramsey's Restaurant "Savoy Grill", and even got to see my first show, Les Miserable. Les Mis was amazing!!!! I highly recommend it.




The trip was right up my alley. It was so nice speaking English after traveling to places that speak Italian, German, French......

That's London in a nutshell! Stay tuned for my last SB stop, Dublin.
