Tower Bridge

I’ve returned from my amazing London vacation, and life is starting to get back to normal. I’ve been trying to decide how much I should blog about the trip, and I dunno if it’s bragging or sharing.

Briefly, my best friend ShantyTown and I arrived In London the morning of July 25th, and left in the afternoon on August 2nd.

In between our arrival and departure we:
-saw Kylie’s KylieX2008 Tour at the O2 Arena
-took a daytrip to Stonehenge, Bath, & Lacock
-toured the Tower of London with a real Beefeater
-sweated it out at the Portobello Road Market
-went to the Work! Party at Heaven
-were not allowed to take pictures in Westminster Abbey or St. Paul’s Cathedral
-ate amazing meals from several global cuisines
-bought way too much overpriced bottled water
-mastered the London Underground system
-gave up on the Bus system altogether
-never got fully drunk
-got $30 stolen from us by our housekeeper
-saw ‘Spamalot’ on the West End in the cheap seats… Funny show
-saw ‘Into The Hoods’ from 15th row. Unbelievable show!!
-took 3 cab rides
-walked more then we ever do at home
-decided that Buckingham Palace and Parliament were not worth the ticket fees and line time to tour
-bypassed all the families and only stood in line for 10 minutes to go on the London Eye

That’s the nutshell version. It was incredible and we had a blast. Now we just need to pay it off between credit cards and what not. Can’t wait to go back though!! Some pictures are added in my flikr stream!!
