London

London Eye & Big Ben at sunsetWe had the opportunity to go to London around New Year’s Eve/Day this year. We had so much fun and the weather was better than we had anticipated for this time of year. If you follow me on Twitter, you saw the tweets below. If not, here’s the best summary of our trip.

 

 

 

#London Day 1: National (+Portrait) Gallery, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, Covent Garden, pub, Gaucho, Claridge's, & mulled wine.

#London was lovely. I'd love to live there, but am ready to sleep in own bed & not live out of a suitcase. #10yrsinDCisalongtime #wanderlust
