Please Mind the Gap

Well its about time that I blog about my fabulous trip to London to see Kambry. It was so nice to be able to spend so much time with her and get a good dose of Kambry since I can't see her all the time anymore. The day I landed, Kambry picked me up from the airport and we headed straight to her adorable flat. I was amazed (but not too surprised) at how her flat was already perfectly set up. Here is a picture of her flat.

After a couple hours of relaxing we headed to see Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens. It was so much fun and we felt like kids again (this might have been because we were the only people who didn't have their toddlers in tow). Peter Pan was written in Kensington Gardens so it was very magical to see it there.

Kambry and I must have been asked if we were sisters a million times. It was so funny that people would just randomly ask us if we were twins or just sisters all the time! Too funny.

Probably my most favorite tourist activity that we did was the Fat Tire Bike Tour. This was a four hour bike tour that took us to every major site in London. Our tour guide was so interesting and would stop at every major site and tell us an interesting story.

Cute little English tour guide

The next day Kambry and I took an hour train ride out to Hampton Court and saw Hampton Court Palace. After spending the day there we went and met Brian at the Tower Bridge and went to see the London Tower.

The gardens at the palace were gorgeous!

High Tea at Harrods (so fun and frilly)

Just when I thought that my trip couldn't get any better, we went to Notting Hill and visited the Porobello Market. It was soooo crowded but so much fun. We ate crepes and just shopped around. I loved it!

Fresh fruits and veggies...yummy!

Soooo crowded!

This sign was on the bathroom. I think they were indicating
that it was a family/handicap bathroom but the picture
really made it look like it was for disabled babies! Haha

Thank you so much Kambry and Brian for being the best tour guides ever. I had such a blast and can't wait to come visit you again!
