Yesterday was our first full day out in London. I started the day bright and early walking around South Kensington, and eventually landed at a coffee shop called Guillam coffee house. One thing I’ve been looking forward to in London is the food. The city is full of authentic restaurants, cafes, and pubs. This may end up being a money pit for my wallet, but I’d like to think it’s worth it for the week. I had a fantastic flakey and fresh pistachio croissant, and a latte at Guillam, which I’d like to think is the way you should start your day everyday.
After a few hours in the museum, me and my classmates made our way to Trafalgar square, which is in the city of Westminster, central London. This is a popular area for dining and shopping, both of which I was extremely excited for. (My wallet however, was not.) Me and one of my classmates spent some time around Oxford street shopping. This was the busiest area I’ve been in since before COVID-19 in a city. It reminded me of Christmas-time around Times Square in New York City.
I have to say my feet are hurting after a day of walking over ten miles, but I wouldn’t want it any other way.
