Rachel's trip to London

Pin It now!

rachel came to visit the first weekend i was here and it was absolutely the best time. we acted like tourists and explored all of london. we mapped out our days strategically and got to see borough market (best street market ever and we took home for snacks yummy cheese, pickles and sausage), the london eye (amazing views of the city), oxford street (herald square meets soho), trafalgar square and national portrait gallery, hyde park, harrods, tower and london bridges, tower of london, dinner and drinks in leicester square, dinner at the albert, la perla, byron burgers and fire & stone. she did a lot of shopping (no surprise) and found fabulous boots at house of fraser and a coat she's been eyeing at zara. i love how we have really similar tastes in food and drinking, and we both wanted to make sure we went out for beers at a proper english pub.

i'm so happy i was able to share our first london trip together. love you baby sis!

I spent a semester abroad in England and we would occasionally go to London for the weekends. I loved it! Enjoy every minute of it!
