summer trip part 3/3 {london}

the cute little window in our hotel room

my first cup of english breakfast tea in england. i was excited because i LOVE english breakfast tea.

the room where we ate breakfast.


the london eye

panorama of big ben & the london eye


westminster abbey

walking around in st jame's park

 a swan. the animals were very friendly... i think they just wanted food.

the birds liked him. 

view of buckingham palace from the park

we could see the london eye as well.

buckingham palace! something was going on- we think it was the changing of the guards- so we decided to watch. we stood behind some kids so we could see over their heads. i think they were french.

this is what happens when the queen takes too long ;) 

us in front of the palace

"feeding" a chicken

our street

guess the horse wanted my attention... or food.

our subway stop

tower hill


tower bridge


we were fortunate that it didn't actually rain on us, but we had typical london weather- chilly and cloudy- hence hao carrying around an umbrella.

this is the sweater in yesterday's post with my j. crew mint jeans.

tower bridge & tower hill

new construction & tower hill

london bridge {it's a lot uglier that i though it'd be}

borough market

i tried pie & mash- so good!!

 we found a truffle section in the market

 brick lane

our street around 5:00 on the morning we left. 

we had a really good time in london. the food was good and there were a lot of sights to see! it was awesome to finally see so many places we'd heard about on TV & in movies!
