Our second day is London was packed with loads of great things! We headed to Camden (a borough of London) to check out their famous open market — there was a lot to buy, although I only left with a necklace (I was good!). Camden is a very eclectic and diverse area. I spotted a lot of hipsters — apparently, there’s a huge music scene there which you could totally tell by the looks of people. Amy Winehouse grew up in Camden, singer Morrissey lived there in the 90′s and it’s where Orlando Bloom has his London home. I guess now is the part of the story where I tell you I had a fabulous dinner and a crazy night out with Amy Winehouse, Morrisey and Orlando Bloom. It was awesome!

…That didn’t happen, but I would definitely be cooler if it did.

After Camden we walked around Islington for a bit, which is a cute little town. We popped into a pub for a quick drink, then headed to church. Nothing like a pint before praising the Lord…

Afterward, we met Brian (a guy my dad works with) and his wife for dinner at a lovely restaurant called Ffiona’s (Welsh spelling the owner told us). I got the vegetable soup to start, then venison with potatoes for dinner (Colin really is rubbing off on me) and enjoyed lots of prosseco throughout the night. It was delicious! The service was amazing and the whole evening was just so enjoyable. I highly suggest Ffiona’s if you ever find yourself in the area. Check them out on Facebook and Twitter.

Figured I would try out a slide show today:
