|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.
|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.
|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!
