London Calling

April 8, 2014
London

The last stop. At the end of my longest ever trip abroad, it all came down to the city on the Thames.

London was more about visiting with friends and walking around various neighborhoods, such as Portobello Road than it was doing the tourist attractions.

That’s not to say Portobello Road is not touristy and I completely avoided the tourist attractions. But being “museum’d out,” I chose two of the many free museums so that I wouldn’t feel guilty about making short visits: National Portrait Gallery and the British Museum.

Yes, this was walking through the many parks in London…

…checking out the various coffee houses (and of course, my favorite – Pret A Manger) and seeing a couple of shows: Billy Elliot and the granddaddy of them all, The Mousetrap.
