London Days

Anyone want to take a little trip through London with me?  Some of my favorite memories are from studying in Rome my last semester of college.  But before arriving in Rome, my good friend and I traveled to London & Ireland for 10 days!

It rained the very first day we were there and of course I would forget my J.Crew umbrella back in the youth hostel = )  Oh well, I ended up buying the biggest umbrella EVER right outside of Buckingham palace that I ended up using all the time. 

Will & Kate's House = )

If you ever make it to London, Serpentines Bar & Kitchen is an absolute MUST!!!  It is the cutest place ever, located on a lake in Hyde Park.  

An amazing view of Big Ben from the London Eye at night.

We ventured through the streets of Portobello Market all afternoon.

Sooo.....I'm letting you in on a little hidden secret.  Ssshhh, don't tell.  Okay, well someone else told me first, but....If you want to find the best scones with clotted cream & jam in all of London, Teapod is another absolute, no excuses, have to visit place for sure!  

This girl is the best!  It was such a blessing to travel with this dear friend for 10 whole days.  And even better being roommates together for an entire semester in Rome.

Seriously ladies, we sat at Serpentines for hours on end....sipping cappucinos, tea, eating incredible food, journaling all afternoon and watching the ducks in the park.  I love how laid back and relaxed the British people were.  We enjoyed this place SO much that we even went back a second day!

Love this girl =)

We finally found Pimms & Lemonade!   So delicious.

Ahhhh... seriously, I was overwhelmed by their unbelievably cute markets!

Oh Yum, I'm drooling again!  Not only was this scone out of this world, but their tea was unlike any I've ever had.  Of course we bought several bags to bring home!

Have you ever seen so many people simply relaxing and enjoying the great outdoors?  I think I could live here =) 

Hopefully one day I will go back with my friend & my mum!  I'd love to take this trip all over again.  I'm sure I would discover so much more the second time round.

Have you ever been to London?  If so, do you have any favorite places or things to do there?  Please, let me in on your little secrets so I can enjoy them next time I go back. =)
