Jolly Ol' London

Jolly Ol' London

Collin and I arrived in London on a typically British day - cloudy and grey. We thought what better way to start our London adventure?

We bundled up in our coats because nothing says winter coats like late June. We headed for Bouough Market to get our fill of good eats.

Nothing is better than finding a fantastic food market in a new city. We walked around the stalls deciding which delicacies to choose. I always feel a bit overwhelmed by all the choices.

I guess I'd been pining for German food because I went straight for the bratwurst and sauerkraut as soon as it hit my nose. Delicious, as always.

Having had our fill we made our way over to Millenium Bridge to fulfill my inner Harry Potter nerd.

The bridge is beautifully made with intensively modern touches.

After sighting our first big red double decker we walked along the Thames to the London Eye and Big Ben. 

We decided to skip going up in the London Eye as our favorite part of visiting any city is simply walking around. Big Ben was incredibly regal. He's getting a bit of a face lift but he was beautiful nonetheless. 

We spotted a festival set up along the Thames - London Udderbelly. It said free admission so we made our way inside. The grounds were decorated in a semi-Alice and Wonderland vibe with giant flower pots and striking views of the London Eye towering above.

The perimeter was lined with food trucks all serving up amazing looking cuisine. We made a note to come back and take advantage of the summer fair. 

Circling around the backside of Parliament and Big Ben we found ourselves at the foot of Westminster Abbey.

As beautiful as ever, Westminster Abbey towers above you with grand gothic spires and beautiful sounding bells.

We spent some time admiring her beauty before spotting a playground to release our inner child. 

Check back soon for more of our London days.
