Christmas feels like a distant memory, even though it was only a few weeks ago. The festive season was something I had been looking forward to ever since we arrived in London in May last year. Everyone knows I am a bit Christmas-obsessed, so as soon as it hit the 1st of December (it may or may not have been mid-November) I was out and about doing as many Christmassy activities as I could.

London life has been a mixed bag of markets, museums and meetings over the past month or so. We have been back from our trip for about four weeks now and I’m starting to feel pretty settled into our new home.

Most of last Friday though we were out and about exploring a few touristy spots and we managed to tick off Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, London Bridge and Tower of London. We did go to Buckingham Palace, but turns out we arrived just when the changing of the guards was about to start, so there were a million people around. It’s definitely somewhere I’d like to go back to though – when it’s not as busy. Continue reading “A Week In London: The Tourist/Expat Version”
