London--Day 2

Day 2 in London was AMAZING. We walked around the most iconic parts of the city--the London Eye, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament (that would be a cool name for a British band…), Westminster Abbey, Trafalgar Square, the Royal Palace (very disappointing…), and St. Paul's Cathedral. It was a beautiful day, with some time left over at the end to walk around and explore a bit! I still am kicking myself for forgetting about the Tower of London and London Bridge… but I must save something for next time ;D Enjoy my pictures!

P.S. I'm sorry for so few descriptions, but honestly… if I described/captioned each picture, it would take me four hours to write this post, and even longer for you to read/enjoy it. After all, a picture is worth 1000 words!

London--Day 1

LONDON. I cannot express. Words do not come. It was such an alive city in so many ways. The people were rude and inconsiderate because they all had somewhere to be and something to do. There was always traffic because the cars, busses, and taxis had to get people to their dates and events. The restaurants were always busy because no one wanted to stay home and cook. EVERYONE wants to be in the middle of the Christmas lights, the decorated streets, the adorned squares, the festive markets. The city was ALIVE in a way I've never seen a city, not even Dublin. I saw so many beautiful sights, but I have to go in order. Day 1 consisted mostly of touring West End--Picadilly Circus, Oxford Street, Regent Street, Carnaby, Liberty London (London's oldest department store), and more. We also walked around King's Cross and St. Pancras train stations, including Platform 9 3/4. It was relaxed, chill, enjoyable. And here it is!
