London bridges, double buses, & a whole lot of shopping

Sunday, 1 April 2012

For Stew's last weekend in Europe, we decided to make a quick trip to London. It was my first time in the city, so one weekend felt like one day. The first night we were there, we went to eat at the OXO Tower London. It sits on the very top of the tower with a wall of windows so you can just look out on the city all lit up. I quickly realized that I was not in France anymore. London was so different. The diversity of the people, the drivers on the opposite side of the road from what I am used to, the food(huge difference), hearing English instead of French, and plenty other differences. I loved London. But guilty as charged, Saturday we spent most of the day shopping. Literally. I am pretty sure I was in Topshop for six hours. The time that was not spent shopping, we went sight seeing. We did the London eye, visited the palace, etc. One of my favorite things was going through the street markets. We even got Fish & Chips. So touristy, I know. When the London trip was over, Stew had to head back to the States. He took one train & I took another to the airport to head back to France. Some time has passed since that trip & I can't wait to adventure with him again in a few weeks!

P.S. you have to excuse my lack of pictures..I wasn't kidding about spending a huge chunk of our time inside a store.
