London – A Quick Stopover

Just because we live in an RV, doesn’t mean we don’t need a vacation once and a while. And what better way than to jump across the pond? We planned 3 days in London to help get over jetlag before meeting up with friends in Spain.

With such a short visit we focused on getting over jet lag and enjoying the beautiful weather. That’s right, it was sunny and gorgeous in April! Nothing is better for jet lag than getting some exercise outside.

We wandered around the Camden Lock area and enjoyed the sights.

The crowds in Camden are eclectic and I may have gotten a few ideas for my next Xscapers rave outfit.

The graffiti all over town is amazing and I could have spent days photographing the buildings. These are just a few of them. I love street art. and hope this trend continues all over the world. It is a great way to get a taste of the local culture.

Dave waited patiently for me to take pictures all over the city.

We had some great food while visiting, from the traditional fish and chips to shepherd’s pie. The Borough Market was another fun food adventure. My favorite was a visit to Bejing Dumpling – delish! Food has improved SO much since my first visit to London with my grandmother in the early 90’s.

We found Big Ben under construction and hardly recognizable.

Of course, no trip would be complete without a search of the local craft beer scene. I was pleasantly surprised to find Kombucha as well.

One of the best things about London is the ease of getting around. We love the tube and used it every day. You can now use Apple Pay on your smartphone instead of buying individual tickets – easy peasy!

We saw the show Waitress with Kathryn McFee. There is nothing like theatre in London – the look, feel and audience are all so different from anywhere else in the world. It was fun to introduce Dave to the London theatre experience.

The prettiest G&T ever

Before we grew too comfortable (or had too many gin and tonics), we were back off to the airport for our next stop, Spain.
