Two weeks ago today marks the beginning of my family’s trip to the UK together. As you may have read earlier, my parents and I ventured across the Atlantic to visit my brother during a break between two study abroad programs – one at Oxford and another in Edinburgh. Our visit could not have come at a more perfect time, sandwiched between his week-long sailing trip in Turkey and the start of his semester in Scotland. My parents and I had promised to do all the grunt work planning outings and adventures for us so that he could abdicate all travel responsibilities while we were with him. With that said, we packed a TON in. The start of our two week trip was in London, and some highlights looked a little bit like this….
Victoria and Albert Museum | Cromwell Rd, London, United Kingdom
Notting Hill Carnival | Notting Hill, London, United Kingdom
Breakfast at Duck & Waffle | Heron Tower, 110 Bishopsgate, London, United Kingdom
Tower of London & Tower Bridge
Walking Along the River Thames
Natural History Museum | Cromwell Rd, London, United Kingdom
In all honesty this post barely scrapes the surface of everything we did in London. It was definitely three days of nonstop exploration and sightseeing. I’d say we made the most of our time! I will say that I have yet to fully understand London as a city…its vastness and diversity continue to puzzle me a leave me feeling like there’s much more to discover before I can truly feel comfortable there. This, however, is not a bad thing. There’s always a reason to go back!
