The London Bridge is your typical destination spot when going to London. I fell in love with it because it was everything London meant to me in one massive stone construction. I hope you enjoy the photos!
The Tower of London was a neat locale. Just across the bridge, you can enter this old fortress and feel like you really are caught in a time warp. The only thing I didn’t like was the claustrophobic stairwells… They were unpleasant to walk up and went around and around in circles. I nearly had a panic attack and fainted. Seriously.
Another of the royal family’s dwellings. I wish I lived in a palace. Yep, I said it. I want to be a princess.
It’s London’s version of Times Square and it didn’t disappoint.
This was my very, very, very first glimpse at London and it set the tone for the two weeks that I was there. I walked out of the tube and right into Trafalgar Square and burst into tears. :) I was 19, halfway around the globe, traveling solo yet it was the most exhilarating feeling I’ve ever felt.
I went through a period in time where I was obsessed with old cemetaries. So, when I planned my trip to London, I thought, “What cemetary can I go to that will really give me the sense of being in a super old graveyard?” I came across Highgate Cemetary where Karl Marx’ bust is and the rest of the place was utterly divine.
Only downside… Twenty minutes after walking into the cemetary, I was hit with a migraine that nearly made me vomit. Weird huh?
Buckingham Palace was just as I expected it to be. Glorious, over the top, luxurious and grandiose. The only thing I wasn’t expecting was how small the balcony looked from where I stood. You know the one I’m talking about… Where the royal family gives their speeches, waves, etc.
