Summertime in London


London was the first stop on my month long Europe trip, and as I touched down, I instantly fell in love

Summertime in London

I had very little expectations, if any at all, upon visiting London, England for the first time. One of my closest friends who I met at University in New York moved back to London after graduating, so I was lucky enough to have been given a personal tour by my best friend during my week days there. I thought I could share some of my favorite places to shop, walk around, to party, and to eat! I stayed at Becca's apartment in Saint John's Wood which was such a beautiful and central area in North London. One of the highlights of my trip was being in England while the World Cup was on and while England continued to advance! The energy everywhere was epic!
