This ended up being a fairly last minute trip. I hadn't planned to go overseas again this year (I'm usually lucky to go overseas once per year...not 3 times!) But I'm definitely not complaining! My friend Kylee had to cancel our weekend trip to Portland (which we will make up for next year!), so since I needed to use the vacation days I figured why not go to London. I booked the trip - basically had airfare and a hotel - and other than that I just planned on winging it once I got there. I got a few recommendations from friends, but otherwise I was ready to just explore and see what each day brought.
After a very long travel day from Los Angeles, I made it to London! The tube was undergoing maintenance, so it took almost two hours to get from the airport to The Park Lane hotel on Piccadilly St. After a very long day and 8 hours time difference, I took a long nap and then walked around to find dinner.
