London in ten days — basically a blur of sightseeing! To fill you in on what I’ve been up to, I thought I’d create an image gallery instead of fondly dwelling on each iconic bit. Only one question remains for me: is a London minute shorter or longer than a New York minute?
First stop: Baker Street, of course! What would London be without the legendary Sherlock Holmes? Never mind, the game is on!
Escaping from the cold by traveling around the city on trains left me feeling a bit like a Ninja Turtle.
A close up of the city’s iconic big wheel!
I think this image is worth a thousand words; or maybe less than 10?
I am in love with this clock. In love! So, I couldn’t help but add another photo of Big Ben lit up at night.
The place to be is inside if you want to take in the insanely ornate decoration! They don’t allow photography, so you’ll just have to go see it.
Recommended cardio for the day if visiting St. Paul’s Cathedral: climb the interior stairs to the top. It’s worth it!
Definitely worth a browse. Personally, I spent my time in the food cellars tasting and buying gourmet cheeses, meats, wines, teas and sweets.
OK, who doesn’t love these old telephone boxes! Please ring me now so I can escape the cold and look super cool chatting away in one.
Ah, the changing of the guards; expect hoards of people clamoring to see this military display. I didn’t go into the palace, but it was nice enough to wave to the Queen from outside the palace gates.
Two visits to the British National Gallery were in order to ensure I saw my precious impressionists and Vincent van Gogh’s Sunflowers.
I found the horse guards to be a bit creepy. Mostly because horses freak me out …. They cannot be trusted given they have hooves and teeth. I am not being silly because the sign even says so!
This is where The Crown Jewels live. Again, no photography allowed inside so you’ll just have to go and see for yourself!
Just resisting all temptation to include a cheesy pun here!
