London is one of our family's favorite cities; and I like saying that because it was always one of my favorites. But now I've been with Trevor, and the girls have been a couple times, and we love the mellow decorum of the British culture in a city that has so much to offer.
Because we were only there for a few days, and because on our last visit we hit many of the hotspots, we took our time and really just enjoyed the pace of the city. We had dinners with friends at Pizzeria Pappagone and Dishoom--and you know I didn't miss my late lunch at Wagamama's (which! has added tons of vegan options, and so my beloved Katsu curry was still an option this time around!) We took strolls around the Tower of London and over the bridge; through our [lucky] Airbnb neighborhood of Little Venice; and then down Oxford Street to gaze upon the Christmas windows. We also took the girls to the British Museum, which can be overwhelming, but they really enjoyed it for an impressive amount of time; and strolled through the shops of Covent Garden, where we caught an impressive opera act.
To me, London will always feel like home in a certain sense; and I think that was why it was a great last stop as we transition back to traveling to the U.S. for awhile.
