U.K. Diaries: London Calling!

Visiting one of the most popular cities in the world was pretty amazing! I had a great time in London it was an awesome experience for me.

A lot of things about London (and Europe in general) were different than I expected. I found the people to be ruder as compared to America, and everything was significantly smaller than I was used to (in regards to the roads and houses).

While clothing and sightseeing was quite expensive (the entrance fees to some attractions were incredibly high), the food was relatively cheap!

Favorite places in London: Harrods, Big Ben, Piccadilly Circus, Oxford Street

Favorite places to eat: Steakout, Pizza Express, Khyber Pass, Tinseltown, Lola’s Cupcakes, and GBK

Overall I just loved London, and  I’m already planning my next visit 🙂

Stonehenge

While in London, my family and I decided to take a day trip to the Stonehenge. It was absolutely breathtaking and I just had such a good time there. If the tickets weren’t so expensive I would definitely want to visit again.

That was how I spent two weeks in London! I loved all the shopping and sightseeing that there was to do there. Out of all the places I visited, the British were the most stylish! My favorite place to shop was Primark. I totally get why everyone shops there now.

  6. Because I commute to London all the time, I almost forget about the features and all the attractions. This was a really nice post though and I am glad that you enjoyed it. I love Covent garden! It is probably one of my favourite places in London. The only thing I disagree with is Oxford Street. Maybe because I worked there about 6 years ago now, I just think of it as too chaotic.

    1. Thank you! I think you’re right, if you spend too much time in one place it gets boring
