London in a day

While we were in Denmark we thought we'd take a quick one hour flight over to London to go and see the sites there. We didn't have a ton of time in Europe as it was so we basically got to London in the afternoon, and then the next day we spend just going around all the sights, trying to get it all in before we left the next morning.

Side note: Before you watch the video please note that I am a kid-like sometimes and get super giddy over seeing sites. Just in case you think I"m pretty cheesy- just remember that.

When we first got into London we thought we'd rent bikes to get to our friends flat instead of taking the metro. Turns out that London is not so much of a biking friendly city as Copenhagen! Haha we learned that lesson fast!

The first night we went to the play "Wicked" it was my first broadway show and I couldn't have been more giddy. It was so incredible, it made me so emotional and left me wanting more. Tanner and Amanda went and saw the Lion King and also said how amazing it was. We exchanged stories and how much the story inspired us.

The next day we walked 11 miles around the city seeing everything and anything, we had the London pass and so we just wanted to do all the touristy things since we didn't have much time there. Shelby and Brandon Shelby and Brandon Shelby and Brandon Shelby and Brandon

Collin and Rachel are friends we made in Boston and they moved to London a couple years ago. They were so kind and hosted us while we stayed in London. We sure are grateful for them and miss having them around.

Wow you saw loads in a short space of time!! And you were brave even thinking of cycling in London - I'd think twice about driving there let alone riding a bike. Glad you had a good time - I'd love to show you my part of the U.K. (South west) if ever you're over here again.

Oh my gosh Shelby your blog popped up and I had to read it - we are actually in London right now! Our first trip over here (sort of an extra trip on the way to the Netherlands for our nephew's wedding!) I saw a picture I didn't recognize - it's the picture under the red "phone box." Can you help me out? Amy
