London - England

Coming to London was a nice little getaway! We stayed with my brother Mark and his whole team of Cirque du Soleil members, in probably one of the nicest locations of town and this time around, I was able to see more of what I hadn't seen before. I love the whole atmosphere of London. There was a great buzz in the air as the whole country waited for the arrival of the new Royal Baby ( I am somehow sure that should be capitalized). Literally, people and press - everywhere! But to me, what makes this place so great is the fashion and the pubs! Yorkshire pudding, fish and chips, mushy peas, beer on tap (of course) and the ease of buying delicious combo meals from even the supermarket made London a winner winner!

Here's my top ten:

1. Piccadilly Circus - located in London's West End, this place is the shopping section of the world! Just fell in love with the beautiful architecture and busyness of this place! 
2. Waterloo Station - I really enjoyed this area and wish I spent more time here. Along the Thames River with lots of restaurants and a cool young feel. 
3. Buckingham Palace - I love it for more of the surrounding park, but also loved seeing the English guards in their attire. 
4. Knotting Hill - here I was really hoping to step into the movie, and I felt like I did! A total quaint section of town with pastel buildings and unique antique shops. A one of a kind place!
5. Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament
6. The London Eye - this is now the second time I regret not actually going on the big ferris wheel, but it's quite the site alone!
7. Abbey Road - take your best Beatles shot here. 
8. Trying typical English Food - probably THE best fish and chips I ever did have!
9. Tower of London and London bridge, formally known as "Tower Bridge"
10. Hitting the town for some English pubs!
