Speedboats and St. Paul’s

On the last day of my trip, I crammed in as much as I possibly could. So grab a cup of tea (or coffee!) and sit tight. This post is going to be picture heavy. I’m gonna warn you in advance, the majority of these pictures were taken on an iPhone. For obvious reasons, I …

Tea on the Thames

One of my absolute favorite things to do, anywhere, is High Tea. Whenever given the opportunity, always do afternoon tea. When I was given the chance to do High Tea right next to the river, I jumped. Like I said in the last post, unfortunately the view wasn’t as memorable as it could have been. …

The City

My favorite part about London is just the life and spirit that lives in the streets of the city. I love wandering around and just experiencing the exciting atmosphere. I started my day in Piccadilly; although it’s quite a busy, touristy location, it’s still a great place to visit just to see the sights, listen …

The Shard

I decided to throw in a mini post amongst all these UK posts…partially because I was falling behind in going through the thousands of photos I took, and partially because it motivated me to keep going a little. I’d have to say that one of my favorite nights this trip was the one I spent …

Brompton Cemetery

There is something so intriguing about cemeteries in a different country… Okay, maybe it’s just me. But old cemeteries are so interesting. The ones here in Utah seem so boring in comparison. I mean, the age of the tombstone alone is something to marvel at. Really, in Utah, we don’t have any older than the …

Kensington

Although Kensington is very tourist-y, I love it. Maybe it’s because I’m a tourist, but there are so many wonderful shops, cafes, parks, museums, etc in the area. In the surrounding area alone you have Harrods, Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, Royal Albert Hall, Victoria and Albert Museum, Natural History Museum, Science Museum, etc. SO much …

Bright Colors and Butterflies

Today was my last day here in London. It’s always hard for me to leave this city. I’ll probably cry on the plane tomorrow. But that’s not for a few more hours. It took me a while to decide what I wanted to do on my last day. I literally figured it out an hour …

Out West

When people visit London, most will spend their time out in the central and western part of the city. It’s the tourist center, the area with the money, the place with the most attractions. I, being the troublesome person I am, spend my time in East London. The East End is rough, dirty, notorious for …

Welcome Home, Son

The city is a loud place. Every city is loud. Car┬áhorns, buses, people cursing as they pass by, sirens…Yet it all sounds different here in London. As I left the flat for my adventures today, camera in my bag, Oyster Card in my hand, I was excited to continue showing my friends and family my …

Go Greenwich

Greenwich has to be one of my most favorite spots in London. There’s something about the atmosphere that makes me feel at peace…and there’s a lot of different things you can do there, so I say go to Greenwich! I actually started my day in Brixton, however. I’ve heard brunch is quite nice out there, …
