This is officially my last post about my Europe trip (wahh!) Our final stop was London. Throughout our trip, we spent so much time trying our best to communicate with locals using hand gestures and (some) basic English words. When we arrived in London, we were excited to finally speak English again.
We wanted to visit the historical stops in the city, as well as enjoy our stay from a local’s perspective. Piccadilly Circus was an interesting spot in the city, with a striking resemblance to Times Square. You can imagine why it’s so popular. Camden Market was my favorite spot in London, by far! It had a ton of local shops filled with hand-made goods and unique finds. The food vendors, which were amazing, gave us a chance to grab lunch while shopping. Later that day, we made our way to Abbey Road Studios. While there isn’t much around that area, I recommend taking the time to stop by because there is so much history associated with the iconic music studio.
Of course, I made my way over to Oxford Street to do some shopping. At this point on my trip, I had basically given up on trying to keep my luggage under-weight. While we continued to explore the city, we took off walking from our downtown London hotel. We bumped into a street-food market where we scooped up some lunch. I chose a duck burger- with goat cheese and honey.. amazing.
As the sun was setting, we ventured out to find the Tower Bridge (different from the London Bridge, oops). While visiting the bridge, we discovered a summer happy hour. Without hesitation, we grabbed some beers and enjoyed the view.
I felt so at home at London, so I truly cannot wait to visit again! I am headed off to NYC this weekend to celebrate my birthday, many photos to come…
