Passing through London

Over the summer, Alex and I went on a whirlwind trip through Europe. Five cities in twelve days. First stop: London! Here are a few of my favorite shots:

Our navigation captain Alex, without whom the
discoveries of this trip would not have been possible.
(Well... until he gave up mapping duties when we
landed in Berlin, at least.)

On our way from our hotel to check out
this city of London we keep hearing about!

Passing through Piccadilly Circus

View of Big Ben from one of London's oldest pubs

Surprise dinner at "Dinner by Heston Blumenthal" which gained
a Michelin star within a year of opening in 2011, and was
rated 7th best restaurant in the world in 2013, NBD!
I felt a little out of place showing up after a long day of
sightseeing in jeans and a t shirt but they didn't seem to mind.

Window gardens on our walk to the Tate Modern Museum

More from our walk to the Tate Modern.

A lovable pigeon who was hanging out on the pavement
when we arrived at the Tate, and was still
lounging on the pavement when we left
a couple of hours later. He was pretty chill.
Yes - I believe it was the same pigeon both times.

Borough Market: location of Alex's favorite sandwich
from the entire trip (salt beef sandwich for those wondering)
as well as two pretty incredible smoothies.
Plus many other delicacies we sadly did not get a chance to try.  

London Bridge!

Blue Trees of London

London residents in their natural habitat: Ye Olde Cheshire Pub.

I think this is Westminster Abbey but I honestly don't remember!

Pretty scene from a time when we stopped walking
from exhaustion and sat in a park.

Big Ben!

Trying to make it to Harrods before it closed at 9pm.
We missed it by a moment, but I enjoyed seeing it
from the outside at night, at least.

Next up... Paris, France!
