You’re going to want to get your most comfortable walking shoes on because London is definitely a walking city. I didn’t know this but the health section of my iPhone tracks the number of steps I take a day and whether or not this is accurate, it showed that while Jason and I were in London, each day we walked an average of 17,000 steps. 17 THOUSAND. Holy smokes! Definitely was able to burn off everything we ate ;)
So, we took a red-eye flight Thursday night out of DC and we landed really early morning Friday in London and we were shoved onto the tube with all the rush hour folks. I’m sure they really appreciated our suitcases. Whatever. Anyway, so it took us about an hour and half to get to the flat we rented off Airbnb (something I HIGHLY recommend; you can be in the heart of a city and not pay an arm & leg for lodging. It was fabulous and we had so much space – we had the entire flat!). We kind of got lost after that but finally found the place and as soon as the owner showed us in the house and left, Jason and I passed out for two hours. Haha oops.
I had this huge elaborate itinerary and was determined to get as much possible sleep on the plane (yeah right) so we could be up and ready to go sightseeing. Obviously that didn’t happen so we woke up around noon and realized all we’ve done in London is sleep so we quickly changed and headed out!
Our first stop…Tower of London!
