Yep… Made a lifelong dream come true: saw London! And did it with my best friend by my side! We were exhausted because we pulled 2 all-nighters for midterms in a row right before we left, had quite a bit of bad luck on the trip to the UK (that started with a broken Sephora compact mirror…… and quickly to follow was a 50 euro fine from the police for not stamping our bus tickets… Yes, that seriously happened) but I still loved every minute of the trip! The moment my eyes laid on the view from the London Eye, I fell a little bit more in love with the city — it’s something you cannot miss out on when visiting London. We also went to the SEA LIFE London Aquarium which was SO cool! I highly recommend it! Aside from the attractions, weirdly enough, I fell in love with a sandwich in London… The chicken and bacon sandwich from Pret! Philadelphia or Delaware NEEDS to get a Pret a Manger, it’s absolutely delicious and 100% organic! It’s actually a struggle to tell you guys about it as we speak… I crave it… Hahahahaha.
ANYWAY, I’ve wanted to see London ever since I was a child. I admit, that dream heightened when I saw my favorite movie of all time for the first time: The Parent Trap. I wasn’t able to see Elizabeth James’ bridal shop… maybe next time ;). But the city did not let me down. There’s something about royalty that gives it a surreal feeling. London will always have a piece of my heart <3.
