our trip to london trip has by far been my most favorite of all our short getaways since moving to italy. one of the perks of military man's job are business trips. we get to travel while he works during the day. we made the best of it while he slaved over at the embassy and even had some needed rest from recently moving into our new house in naples. i had traveled to london before as a chaperone for a school trip and couldn't wait to show my company my favorite parts of the town. well, london didn't disappoint...everybody fell in love with her.
the best story-teller
victorian blue...queen victoria's favorite color which is also painted on tower bridge. this picture really says london to me, a city who is mostly gray but with punches of color. they really express themselves with these vibrant and luxurious colors all around the city, which is a direct reflection of who they are. just lovely and vibrant people full of warmth and a zest for life.
guarding the crown jewels.
just love these guys. i can't wait to see them as teenagers and the best of friends. they really can't live without each other.
having fun at Hamley's Toy Shop, London's version of FAO Schwartz....or is FAO Schwartz our version of Hamley's? another a example of which came first....the chicken or the egg?
lady liberty standing there oh so pretty...it was love at first sight! the best shop for all things feminine.
just because she's oh so cute!
one of my favorites of the crew while standing at Picadilly Circus...everybody's attention is on something different. so much to see.
we had such a great time there and i can gush over this city for hours but why bore anyone with what most people already know about this fantastic city. I love thee!!! more of snapshots of london on my flickr set.
