I have a new nation’s capital!
Referring to London as my nation’s capital doesn’t quite roll off the tongue yet. Especially when I’ve just moved from Australia’s national capital of Canberra, which has been my home for the past eight years.
I like to think that I did my fair share of exploring when I lived in Canberra (I’m already missing the many great things to see, do and eat!). So having friends visiting England conveniently at the same time as I moved over meant an awesome compulsory trip to the smoke (aka London) for a few days of exploring (with plenty of eating and drinking in between!).
London, London, London… the first thing I’ll say is that it’s rare to not see a bit of hustle and bustle wherever you go. I love that whatever time it is, there is always something happening; and we certainly kept busy!
We did what tourists do and did a lot of wandering around the city to check out the sights. As we walked through the likes of Leicester and Trafalgar Squares I couldn’t help but constantly be distracted by what was going on around us – whether it be buskers working up a crowd for their performance, massive billboards tempting you to one of many theatre shows or beautiful old buildings everywhere you look.
It was a really great few days of seeing new things and hanging out with some friends that I probably won’t see in a while. Here are some of my favourite things from our mini adventure:
I’ve obviously much more to check out in London and would love to hear your suggestions in the comments below!
