The final leg of our holiday was in good ol’ London.
Whenever we visit Marcus’ family (most of whom live in Cornwall and Gloucestershire), we always try to tack on a couple of days in London on the way back home. Usually, because our trips across the pond tend to be a week or less, it means only a day or two in London; however, because we traveled for much longer this time, we were able to spend four days in one of my favourite cities in the world.
I was living in London when I met Marcus, so we both know the city pretty well. However, our daughter was less familiar with the city. And because she’s considering going to university in London (Alex is a UK citizen because of her father; also, universities in England cost a fraction of the price of American universities), we left our London itinerary up to her.
She did a great job: our four days include visiting the University of Arts London, Camden Market, the Tate Modern, and the London Eye, just to name a few. Here’s what it looked like:
And with that, tomorrow morning we start making our way back to Texas. What an amazing trip.
See you all Stateside, friends.
