European Honeymoon [9 of 9]: London, England

Photography by Miguel Marino

London was the last stop on our 9-city European honeymoon, and though we were physically tired by this point after a month of traveling, we loved the city! I can't wait to visit again when I have more energy. Nevertheless, we still got to experience some awesome parts of this city -- here are a few of my favorite memories:
  1. The bustling, touristy vibe of Piccadilly Circus.
  2. Wishing to be transported to the magical world of Hogwarts through Platform 9 3/4 at King's Cross Station! (Full post here.)
  3. Shopping at Harrods is quite the sensuous experience, with multiple floors of museum-quality for lustworthy designer pieces, restaurants, chocolatiers...
  4. Generous portions of fish and chips at Kerbisher & Malt in West Kensington.
  5. Loved the fun and quirky neighborhood of Shoreditch. The Book Club is an adorably hipster cafe there.
  6. Fancy dim sum at Yauatcha in SoHo.
  7. Borough Market is a great time! We had a delicious pork belly sandwich, and got flutes of champagne and went around taste-testing oysters.
  8. Strolled through the calming and beautiful Hyde Park.
  9. I don't know if it's because we really missed Asian food, but Bone Daddies had the best ramen ever! 20-hour pork bone broth!
  10. Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, London Bridge, and Clink Street because they're touristy "musts" I suppose.
  11. Visited William Shakespeare's Globe Theatre and wished we had time to watch a play! I teach Hamlet and Romeo & Juliet so my English teacher side was nerding out.
I've been receiving questions about planning and packing for a month-long European and Southeast Asian (as we spent a month there the year before) vacation. I'm planning to write a post with tips from my experiences. If you have any questions you'd like answered, please ask in the comments below!

Destinations before: ParisBarcelonaVeniceMilanAthens, Santorini (Part 1 and Part 2), Cinque Terre (Part 1 and Part 2), and Amsterdam.
