Day one in London was spectacular and, if you can believe it, day two was even better.
Bet you can guess what it started with. There are more Starbucks shops per block than any other city I’ve ever been in. This includes NYC. I’m refusing to shop there while I’m in London, so Patisserie Valerie was my first stop. Eh, not impressed. Tomorrow is another day.
After not fully enjoying my coffee but drinking it anyway (because, caffeine) we headed to St. Paul’s Cathedral. It was unreal. My mom and I got a guidebook and I read it out loud while we walked all through the church.
It’s just mind-blowing how old these buildings are. Allow me to melt your mind for a sec: The first St. Paul’s Cathedral (there were several due to fires and wars) was built about 1,000 years before Isaac Newton brought up the whole gravity thing. #straightcray
From there we hoofed it over the Millennium Bridge and I wished on a bubble :)
The last three sights of the day were Borough Market (AMAZING), Tate Modern Museum (AMAZING 2x), and Harrod’s because a lady’s gotta get her shop on.
Borough Market: The foods, the smells, the flowers, the people, the atmosphere; it was an outdoor market on roids. The food was so fresh and delicious, the produce looked and tasted perfect. I could’ve stayed there all day.
Tate Modern: This was beautiful–and free! I saw so many of my favorite artists including Mark Rothko. A whole room of Rothko. Ah, heaven.
Never miss a thing when you follow #LindsayInLondon because it’s going down on social.
Until tomorrow. CHEERIO.
