I know, I know… how clique is that title? It’s not even the first time, I’ve done it before. But I couldn’t help it. Especially when Chris chose to play the song aloud as we wandered the cobbled streets. So I can’t help it now, to replay the song in my head as I write this post.
London, even in the two days that we had there, called us. It was exciting and fun even if it was cold and overcast. If you ask me what my favourite kind of holiday is, I would tell you that it involves water (preferably beachy, but not so picky at the moment), nature (again, preferably trees but will take any plant life) and some sort of sport (be it hiking or waterskiing – not so picky!). But I also really love exploring the cities where I go. They are a veritable melting pot of a country’s culture/s. London was no exception.
Of course we explored some of London’s institutions, making many an obligatory stop…
The Grand Old Streets and Buildings (and can’t forget the buses)
The Thames and Riverside
We had a grand time in this grand city. The best time of day here, by far, is the evening. The lights brighten up the city, it doesn’t matter that it is overcast any longer and the city takes on more of its old world charm.
London, I hear you calling. ‘Til next time…
