London Bridge

London Bridge

I’ll start off my much-anticipated blog with a picture I took on my first day exploring London. We got really lucky weather wise; it was absolutely gorgeous the first few days we were in town. My co-worker and I met in London on the second day of our trip and got in our tourist time wandering the city. EVERYTHING is so classic and beautiful here. Even as I type I’m sitting in a Starbucks across the street from the most beautiful McDonalds building I’ve ever seen. (PS, Londoners love Starbucks. They’re on every corner here, a lot like New York City.) Anyway, we had a great day exploring the city and ended the night with a lively dinner with basically every one of our bosses. More about Explore (the short version of my company’s name) and all of that later!

  1. Hey Abby, sounds like you’re enjoying London, the English countryside is stunning, with hedgerows and green everywhere. Go explore! One word of caution, though, and I bet you have already found out, British foods suck! (unless they’ve upgraded their national menu in the last decade since I’ve last been…). I took to eating at American chain restaurants to keep my strength up!. Grandpa and I enjoyed the Cutty Sark and Greenwich museums, but that’s a good train ride out from London. We took the wrong train by mistake from Victoria station; an express, and ended up in a town called Orpington, where the breed of hens Allie and I had at the time were originally developed. We had a good laugh about that.
    The one thing that really struck me every time I went was, and you touched on it, how old everything is there. An antique store there sells antiques, not trash from the 70s. When I was there once, there was quite an uproar over one antique store selling (and worse yet, displaying) a pair of Queen Victoria’s knickers!
    Consider taking a day (or two) weekend trip too France while you’re there.
    Have a blast!
