The hubster and I traveled to London over Thanksgiving and I was taken back by how much I still loved that charismatic, dynamic city.
It was my fifth time traveling there. I lived in London for an internship in college and loved it so much I desperately tried to apply to any job there that would take a recent college grad with zero experience. Hint: It didn’t work out. Life carried on. When we traveled to London over 4 years ago to get married, I had only 2 days to explore the city I dreamed about going back to. I found myself a bit weary of the crowds and constantly being on the go with only 2 days to basically show the hubster my old stomping grounds before we headed off to southwest England to get hitched.
I thought perhaps I had grown out of it. Maybe London was meant to be a fleeting memory of fun days gone by? So much so, that when I traveled to Tokyo last year, I thought it gave London a pretty good run for her money.
Well, I’m happy to report the London bitch is back. And I fell in love with her all over again.
Having nearly a solid week to explore as much as we could, the hubster and I found ourselves sitting by the Thames on our last night imagining what it would be like to live there, how often we could come back and how nice it would be to make it a tradition to do a London getaway.
She got me. She got me good.
Take a walk with me through some of the many reason why London is the best.
