THREE AMERICANS WALK INTO A BAR

Well, technically a pub.

Regardless, yesterday was a day full of laughter, new friendships, and number of bloody mary’s. {but not before I blew up my hair dryer… those adapters/converters/evil devices will get ya} Sarah and I met for brunch, which ended up turning to lunch when we found out we had to make reservations at the restaurant we had originally picked out. {whoops, we will be back} We opted for another brunch spot that served bloody mary’s and found ourselves perfectly satisfied. I ordered a full english breakfast {minus the toast #glutenfreeproblems} and it did not disappoint.

Incredible, gigantic 3D artwork was displayed on almost every other building.

BUCKINGHAM PALACE

En route to witness the famous Broadway performance ‘Wicked’, I couldn’t help but take a stroll to the grand palace itself to say ‘Hi’ to Liz. Just a short walk from Victoria station, Buckingham Palace was absolutely stunning on this sunny, London afternoon.
