Back in July, Robert and I took the most fun trip to the other side of the pond! We went to London for the wedding of one of my childhood friends and lived it up! Thanks to GJ and Daddo, we even flew over in style! First class all the way!
We made it with no problems – because we drove to Atlanta that day to catch our flight instead of sitting in the Birmingham airport waiting for that leg to be cancelled! We even stood in the customs line behind Keira Knightly when we arrived! Fun! To fight off the jet lag, we just decided to keep going for the day and made our way over to the London Eye where we met up with Jeff and Erin…
We then got settled into the hotel and headed out to an early dinner…
We had dinner at Sexy Fish and it was excellent!
We got up the next day and had the breakfast of my dreams next to an open window with temps in the low 70s. Basically perfect.
We then headed over to see the Queen. Sadly, she missed our appointment but I waved at her anyway and then toured the state rooms of her palace and also checked out the Mews.
We then headed over to Sketch for tea. It was quite the experience!! Scones and tea sandwiches and caviar! and eggs for bathrooms! Robert was a very good sport. 🙂
That afternoon we decided to head over to the Tower of London to see the Crown Jewels. They were pretty but, man, it was HOT outside and all the lines were outside. In fact, our whole trip to London was HOT! But, at least it wasn’t raining!
That night we met up with my other AR friends for dinner at The Social and had another excellent meal.
After dinner we finally got to see the Groom to be, Frank!
Friday brought some good shopping, down time, and lunch with my college friend, Kelly.
Fun all around – but the real fun was just beginning! More to come!
