i am beyond excited to begin posting all the photos from our recent trip to europe! this was my first true experience leaving the good ‘ol US (besides my recent visit to canada). we spent about two weeks abroad and were fortunate enough to be able to visit london, munich, and my favorite, paris.
i am new to traveling. prior to the past few years my breadth of travel had only been to a few locations within the U.S. i will say – so far i really enjoy traveling. the good (my husband no longer believes in shaving his face) and the bad (jet lag and sketchy flight landings on the tarmac)!
we flew in to london on an overnight flight (thankfully we were able to sleep part of the 9 hours!) and landed at heathrow around noon. to beat jet lag, we knew we couldn’t stop! we had to get up and go and see the wonders of london. however, as our luck would have it, upon our arrival the tube was on strike (london’s fast and reasonably priced means of transportation). we didn’t let that stop us – london has uber!
a few pounds later we were in soho london. i loved that you could walk from one end of the thames river to the other and see all the major landmarks – the london eye, big ben, and parliament to name a few. i cant forget to mention all of the incredible architecture everywhere you look.
our stay in london was only one night as we were flying out to munich the next morning. so for our one day in london, we decided to walk to our hearts content, enjoy various pubs and take in the sights. i would have to say my favorite pub we stopped at was the golden lion pub, which just so happened to be across from christies auction house. the day we were visiting, the auction house was selling an airplane from WWII. everyone was standing around outside trying to spy who would walk out of the building. it was an exciting commotion to witness.
i loved being in the city where everyone dressed in their suits standing outside and socializing. humans actually interacting with one another instead of their faces stuck in a phone. the locals were very friendly and entertaining, i would call london a melting pot of europe. a lot of the people we met were not even from london!
if there was one thing i’d change about our overall eurotrip, i would have liked more time in london!
