Love Affair Travels ~ London

Looking through my pictures makes me want to hop on the next plane and head back to Europe. Since that isn’t a very realistic plan, I’ll relive my trip through a series of blog posts. Care to travel with me?

First stop: London.

On our first day, my cousin Christopher was our local tour guide. We hit quite a few of the city’s high points, and did plenty of walking! Stops along the tour included Harrods (swooooon), Trafalgar Square, Covent Garden, The Royal Palace, Westminster Abbey, and Big Ben. Here are a couple of snaps from the day:

A gorgeous view of the London Eye.

Wedding festivities (and shopping for a replacement wardrobe) took up the majority of the next few days, but we did get the chance to do a little more sightseeing before we left. Some of the highlights included the Tower Bridge, the Tower of London, and a ride on the London Eye!
