London Part I

I give you London. Enjoy!

Trafalgar Square

We arrived in London around 9 a.m. on Thursday, April 12th. The three of us spent three hours dealing with customs, currency exchange and staring at a London map hunting for our hotel.

We ended up having to drop our bags off at the hotel and head to a local pub until we could check in.

I’m embarrassed to say I had a complete meltdown once we arrived at our hotel, the Enrico Hotel. I believe it was a mixture of culture shock, lack of sleep and the realization that our room was the size of my closet. Just imagine me hysterically laughing and crying. I really should have taken a photo.

By 2 p.m., we were in our hotel and snuggling in our beds for a nap. Jet lag was an absolute hag. See that? Totally just rhymed. Mind blown? I know.

We got up around 6 p.m. and headed to Trafalgar Square for the night.

The next morning we made our way to Kensington Palace.

The ceilings are to die for. I think my head was cocked back staring at the ceiling nearly 40% of the time.

The beautiful Queen Victoria. Check out that frame!

We made our way to Buckingham Palace.

And Westminster Abbey. This place was absolutely gorgeous. We aren’t allowed to take photos inside at all. I had no idea how ginormous the Abbey is. There are numerous alcoves and nooks and crannies to explore. So beautiful.

Check out the side of this thang. I’d be down for getting married here. Note to self: Use my connections to get in touch with Prince Harry. Yes, I’ve got connections people.

Just back at Buckingham Palace in front of this beauty.

The London Eye

Where have you traveled to lately? Hopefully, it was somewhere warmer than London.
