As promised, in this post I will share more of my European trip. This time it is all about London. Where should I begin? When we left New York for London we barely experienced anything that day because we had to quickly catch the Eurostar to Paris. But after our time in Paris was over we went right back to London for the rest of our trip. 

London was great! Such a cool place that reminded me a little of New York City. I was so excited to see the double-decker buses, ride the tube, see Big Ben, take a trip on the London Eye and eat real fish and chips.

We stayed at a hotel that was very close to Heathrow Airport so we had to ride the tube towards the inner city for the fun sightseeing stuff. Every time we wanted to go shopping or eat we would take the tube to Piccadilly Circus, which if you are from New York it is similar to Times Square. Piccadilly was filled with restaurants, souvenir shops, and shopping stores. 

We ate at a Pizza Hut which in the UK is an actual sit and eat restaurant. Also at Piccadilly we had a real English breakfast (beans, eggs, sausage, bacon, tomatoes, and toast) at a nearby diner and more amazing food at Garfunkel's. We also visited Cool Britannia which is this awesome souvenir store. They literally have everything London or UK related to take back home to friends and family. 

We visited Buckingham Palace which was filled with so many people taking pictures. It was so interesting to see the Queen's guards standing outside of the palace in their red uniform and big furry hats. But unfortunately the public can only see so much of the Palace. 

The London Eye was perfect for a good view of London. The slow moving "eye" takes you to a great altitude which lets you see Big Ben and other great London sights. We also visited the "shops," an area where all they have is shopping stores. It looked and felt very much like Fifth Avenue. 

On our last night we had dinner at our hotel. We had fish and chips which was so yummy. We were worried we were going to leave London without having real fish and chips. After being busy sightseeing we completely forgot about finding a fish and chips restaurant. But luckily our hotel had this on their menu! London was fun but next time I will make sure to stay longer.
