I’m back from my big adventure abroad and I’m so excited to share my journey with you!! Yay!! I’m sorry it took so long!! Life has been hectic and I’m just now getting to editing all of our photos and videos. Better late then never, right?!
The first edition of my travel posts is all about London! I consider London to be my spirit city. I studied abroad in London for five months while in college and fell in love. When Fletch and I decided to go abroad I immediately proposed stopping in London before hand. I was thrilled when Fletch told me he’d love to make the pitstop. Fletch and I had just started dating when I studied abroad and that time away from each other really tested our relationship. Being able to share at least a piece of that experience with Fletch now was pretty special.
So, Fletch and I set off on our big honeymoon, first stopping in London and going on to Italy. In London we stayed in the Hilton at Green Park. It was perfectly located! Right in central London, a five minute walk from Buckingham Palace, and right by a tube stop. Absolutely perfect! We only had two and a half days in London so we tried to cram in as much as we could. I think we did a pretty good job, if I do say so myself!
We arrived in London around 2pm and were at our hotel by 4pm. We dropped our stuff off at the hotel, cleaned up a bit, and went out into the busy streets of London to have a little adventure. As I said, our hotel was really close to a tube station so we grabbed two Oyster cards, to be used during our time in London, and ventured on to Covent Garden to find an adorable Kawaii shop called Art Box.
We had a really hard time finding the shop and wound up happening upon a really fun Moomin Store. I mean, an entire store devoted to Moomin. I couldn’t believe it!
