Honeymoon: London, England

The beautiful city of
London
was the perfect place for the last stop on our honeymoon.
I loved London... we were so excited to get there and fortunate enough to stay 4 nights.
The streets, buses, bridges... it was just how I imagined it. Stunning.
We ate lots of yummy pub food, drank lots of great beverages, and even did a little shopping :)
We definitely want to go back!  
We rode the tube from the airport to the hotel... the tube was awesome, and I was so proud of us for doing that with all of our luggage!
The Strand Palace Hotel... a great central place for us to stay!
We did the scenic bus tour to learn our way around the town... learned a lot about the city, too!
In front of the Tower Bridge!
The giant lions...
And our starbucks cups! :)
Harrods... the biggest mall I have ever seen in my life!
We got to tour the inside of Buckinham Palace because the queen was on holiday in Scotland!
The back of the palace - they wouldn't let us take pictures inside.
In front of the Tower of London.
The last night there, we decided to ride the London Eye...
It was a fabulous way to see all of the city... we went up right as the sun was going down.
It was stunning!  I think it's one of the biggest ferris wheels in the world!
My favorite picture - from the London Eye - it looks fake.

We love, love, love London... it's a beautiful and fun place.

I want to do our honeymoon all over again - it was one of the most memorable months of my life.  We had such a fabulous time - something I will never forget!
I love Europe.

London should pay you for marketing because now I want to go!

It looks amazing. The mall looks like a castle! I hope to make it there some day. Now that I know people there (via blogger), it should be easy :)

I might have asked you this before, but what was the Cruise that you took all over Europe for your Honeymoon? I want to take the same one with J next year before we start trying for kids. Can you tell me what cruise line and all the details? I would really appreciate it if you could email me the info.

Thanks babe. Hope you are starting to feel better. xo
