Up until this point, I had always considered myself a Paris girl, that is until this weekend…

We’ve just returned from a long weekend in London, and had a wonderful time. We spent two days in London, and a day in Oxford and the Cotswolds.


In London, we did the totally tourist way to see it. On Friday we enjoyed the Champagne Experience on the London Eye.

The London Eye was fun for all of us. Even Alara enjoyed it. She was given a bag with binoculars, a notebook, and a pencil to use while on the ferris wheel. We all enjoyed our drinks, and got to see London from a different view.

On Saturday, we took a bus tour around the city. It was an off and on tour, and it truly was the best way to see the whole city and to learn some really interesting facts, that I never would have learned on my own.

It is because of the bus tour that we were able to see everything that we wanted. It was also a great way to see lots of things with the girls. Alara loved being on the bus, looking at the sights and hearing the stories about them, and Ela either looked around, slept or fed (more on that later) while we toured about.

I absolutely loved London. It is such a relaxed place, the people are so nice and helpful, the food was great (yummy curry!!) and it was so easy to get around.

I can’t wait for our next trip there!

    London is, by far, our favorite city! It was amazing being stationed in England for 4 years because we went to London monthly. My husband LOVES the Tower of London! I am glad you guys had fun šŸ™‚

      Thank you Shannon! I hope we can get back there again soon! You’re so lucky that you got to live there for four years!

    We have been to London twice now and still have not seen everything. Wasn’t Oxford truly amazing. Probably our 2nd favorite spot. Did you see the Alice in Wonderland store?

      We loved it there! Unfortunately we didn’t spend too much time in Oxford, and most of it was at Jamie Oliver’s restaurant there. Totally worth it!
