First time in London!!!! I am not sure why it took me that long to visit though. Fortunately, my husband had to go there for a couple of days because of work – so what did I do? Yep, I HAPPILY tagged along!
London felt like a jolt to my system after living in Stockholm for years. If I am to compare it to all the places we have visited so far – it felt like Rome during Easter of 2014. (I will certainly share that journey too 🙂 ). I did not mean that in a bad way (then perhaps I should have used another word, eh?!). Let’s put it this way, it was like waking up from a nap (is that better?).
Everyone seems to be running after something, except the tourists (like us 😉 ).
Normally, when we visit a new place, we make sure we ONLY eat the local dishes. But, London is SO diverse that it was tricky to follow the same routine. The closest that I got to following that rule was during breakfasts and snacks – the rest of the meals, we had a mix of Korean, Italian, Vietnamese, etc. Everything was good. It’s amazing that even with the mix of cultures in the city, it was still easy to find authentic cuisines, not everything is a ‘fusion’.
Full disclosure: We walked around a LOT and saw most of the ‘touristy’ sites for this first visit. Next time, I will make sure that I sample authentic English cuisine. Promise! 😀
