London, the city where I truly feel at home, even though I’m basically a stranger over there. My love for London started back in 2010. A once in a lifetime opportunity led me to a three month stay in London. Besides fully focusing on my cancer research intership, I was also able to explore London on my own, at my own pace. It was also the start of an incredible awesome mom – daughter annual getaway weekend. So once a year you will find my mom and me drinking our afternoon tea at the Kensington Palace Orangery, strolling all day long through the London parks,… quality time that I truly love and look forward to every single year.
Here are some of my favorite places in London. I do say ‘some’ because every corner in London has something special.
Peel back the pavement of a grand old city like London and you can find anything, from a first-century Roman fresco to a pair of medieval ice skates – even an elephant’s tooth. As one of Europe’s oldest capitals, London has been continuously lived in and built over by a succession of Romans, Saxons, Normans, Tudors, Georgians, Regency rakes, and Victorians, each of whom added to the pile. As a result the modern city sits atop a rich archaeological layer cake that’s as much as 30 feet high.
