London has been nothing short of amazing. I cannot believe the awesome weather we’ve had the whole time we’ve been here. It’s been sunny, bright, and gorgeous the entire time. No rain! It’s a miracle.
We’ve been spending our days walking around without any type of strict agenda, allowing the narrow streets to take us through the city. It’s amazing to just wake up, get dressed, and see where the day takes us. It’s the best way to travel in my opinion. I’m in awe of every little thing: the architecture, the way that bathrooms have full sized doors, the fact there is a pub pretty much on every street, and the amount of different languages you can hear on one corner. At night, after we’ve walked around all day, we usually settle into a cozy pub booth, beers in hand, and reflect over what we’ve seen that day. It’s just been awesome.
In a way, it feels like I haven’t really started traveling yet. Since I lived in London for almost 6 months, it kind of feels like I’m back home. I’m still finding places I’ve never been before though, like Notting Hill and Portobello Market.
But let me tell you, Johnny had to DRAG me out of Portobello Market. Stalls of gorgeous leather bags, antique keys, clocks, vintage books and paintings. My wallet and backpack are thanking me for not buying everything in sight. If you’re ever in London, Portobello Market is a MUST see! I could have seriously spent all day there. Just when you think there isn’t more to see, you turn a corner, and there are even MORE stalls. It was magic. If you love pretty vintage things, you have to go, ASAP. I’m already planning my trip back.
