London All Lit Up

The word was that London had the greatest New Year’s Eve fireworks show on the planet, so we headed up to the “Big Smoke” to see for ourselves.

Neither of us had ever been to England before, so we jam packed our 3 day stay with tours, museums, and of course, a fireworks viewing party from the Thames river.


We are super thankful we didn’t rent a car, as even riding a bus on the left side of the road (read: the Wrong Side) was nerve-wracking enough.  Fortunately, the world’s oldest underground metro system “The Tube” made inner-city travel a cinch.


We expected a city packed with amazing sights as well as palpable antiquity, and we were not disappointed one bit.  What surprised us the most, and in a wholly pleasant way, was the diversity and liveliness that the city had.

Of course, we were shocked when establishments stopped serving food at 11 o’ clock, far earlier than any self-respecting spot in Madrid would ever dream of.  Regardless, we still feasted on the quintessential London fare such as Bangers and Mash, Shepards Pie, and Fish and Chips.

Here’s to a new year and many more adventures together.
