London // Vol. 1

Our tube stop – right down the street from our flat.
Residing in a city with limited public transportation, an Oyster card  is real magic.
The whole city is yours with a few dollars and a tap on the yellow circle.

Tea with my mom at The Orangery.
One of my very favorite moments from our time in London.

The palm house at Kew Gardens.

The Design Museum and the Designer Maker User exhibit.

Off to the busy Trafalgar Square, Big Ben, and classic London sights.
The scaffolding didn’t quite cover up the bell tower and it still chimed strong.

We walked across the bridge to the South Bank which was a mass of people and street performers.
And one of us enjoyed some cotton candy (er, candy floss?).

Classic London side street.

 

London was full, bustling with so many different people.
Everywhere you looked there were seas of people and beautiful buildings.
All of the pictures I grew up looking at didn’t compare to the grandness and charm of being there in real life.

 

(For the 1990’s kid reference:  This and this.)
(AND, YOU GUYS, THERE’S A DELETED SCENE.)

One thought on “London // Vol. 1

  1. Beautiful photos! And, oh my goodness, I thought I was the only adult who still loved the 90s version of The Parent Trap?! Those clips took me back. I was in England in 2011 & those songs were playing my head when I was going through London.
