As part of our yearly anniversary, my boyfriend and me like to take a trip. The last couple of anniversaries we’ve visited Utrecht, Edinburgh, and Dublin. This year’s trip marked my sixth return to London, a city that has a special place in my heart.
On our first evening, we had perfect dreary London weather. We hopped onto the tube, and visited Picadilly Circus, my favourite book store Waterstones, and Covent Garden. Here is us with a barely visible Picadilly Circus!
On the second day I gave the map over to Bas, who navigated us through the city! We had a slightly creepy run in with some city pigeons who kept following us (eep!).
Amongst other things, we visited the British Museum, the National Gallery, the British Library, and walked most of the sights of London. I also discovered Forbidden Planet, a comic book store I hadn’t know of before, which had a fabulous collection of everything geek, fantasy, and science-fiction.
One of the highlights of the trip was meeting up with three bloggers I’ve known for a long time – Vicky from Books, Biscuits and Tea; Leah from Uncorked Thoughts; and Daphne from Winged Reviews. We met up for dinner, and then went browsing at the Foyles book shop. Also huge props for Bas and Phil who endured all of our book talk.
We had an absolutely fabulous time on our anniversary trip. It was filled with all of my favourite places, good food, and I bought many awesome things (including an Alice in Wonderland mug that I LOVE SO MUCH). London is loud, gloomy, flashy, historic, modern, and smelly, and I can’t wait until I can go back.
Have you ever been to London? What is your favourite place?
