To London, My Good Sir

August 5, 2013



I cannot believe I just typed that title.

Would you forgive me this one indulgence?


Thank you. If you happened to have pictured me with eyes squeezed tight, hunched over and running, Flashdance-style, you get five extra points BECAUSE I SO WAS.

There are many things I planned to cross of my LifeList this coming (school) year, but I never thought London was going to be part of that list.

It is!  This spring. There is more to this trip, but that is another story to come.

Ohhhhh, I need your help, please!

Here’s the thing: I have three days in London and there are SO MANY things and SO MANY places to see and do and experience – it just can’t all be accomplished in three days.

This is where you come in – because you are smart and interesting and good-looking and awesome.

If you had three days in London, what would you do?  I’d love to know what you would choose to see, where you would eat, or even what you would not choose.  What off-the-beaten-path secret adventures would you recommend? Is there a local market that shouldn’t be missed?  You get the idea.

Here’s a bonus question: What one, amazing, splurge-worthy item would you bring home from your adventure? (Hands0me Englishman notwithstanding)

I have a few things in my head to start my list, but I can’t wait to hear your ideas. I will let you in on a little secret (shhhhh!). One of the things I am most looking forward to is meeting and tackling this guy after being internet friends since 2005.

[Said in my best English accent] Ready, set… Go!

    Cabbages and Frocks Market at the St. Marylebone Church! You must also eat a Tasty Dog (a hot dog stuffed inside a baguette) while you are there.

      See? I would have never known about this. THIS IS WHY THE INTERNET EXISTS. Thank you!

      And now I’m hungry.

    Have you been before?? There is so much to see that I recommend taking the Open Top Bus Tour as you will get a good overview and lots of the history. If you have specific places you want to put on a list you can just get off there and then get back on when you are ready. It is the most fabulous city and you must have comfortable walking shoes as you will do lots of walking – and lots of running for tubes! Buy an Oyster card for the transport system.

    Are you set up with hotel etc as that will decide your best way of getting around. We were there for a few days in May and stayed right next to the London Eye and had a great time.
