Day 7 consisted of shopping and walking around Notting Hill, dinner at Cafe Rouge and a Jack the Ripper tour (Scary! And long!). And day 8 was one of my favorite days (and my last :(). It consisted of a lovely trip to Stonehenge and Bath with dinner at the Firehouse Rotisserie in Bath. So amazing!
Sadly, that’s all for my London recap. It was one of the best trips ever. I feel so lucky and blessed I got to experience it all, so a big thank you to my Mom and Dad for letting me do that! It was so nice to get to spend alone time with them – doesn’t happen very often in such a big family. So here’s to an absolutely wonderful trip and an experience of a lifetime! Cheers and cheerio!
PS: GO TO LONDON IF YOU CAN. :)
Day 6 consisted of Kelly’s first day in London, the British Museum and the Rosetta Stone. We also had a lovely dinner together and got to see We Will Rock You, based on the music of Queen (one of my favorite bands ever). The storyline was kind of weird, but the music more than made up for that. I’m so glad we got to see two great shows while I was in London!
Days 7 and 8 tomorrow. Cheerio!
Day four consisted of Buckingham Palace, the changing of the guards (our video of them here), the Saatchi Gallery (we saw some interested stuff there, that’s for sure! Right Mom?!), Parliament, Big Ben, the London Eye, Westminster Abbey and sticky toffee pudding (quite possibly one of the most delicious things in the world). Such a great day!
Day 5 soon…Cheerio for now!
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:
Day 3 coming soon…Cheerio!
