Euro Tour: Chasing The Sunset Along London’s South Bank

Euro Tour day 1. We woke up at noon with a puffy face in a groggy state of mind. Jet lag hit us like a ton of bricks and it felt almost impossible for either Victoria or I to get out of the sofa bed. Our lovely London hosts, who lived right at the edge of what people call “The City,” suggested we took a stroll from the house to the Big Ben along London’s South Bank to lift our spirit a bit; they had put together a fine itinerary of some interesting sight-seeing and (touristic) attractions, some of which surprisingly easy to miss if you aren’t informed.

Just looking at these photos gives me the chills – the cold in London gets right into your bones, sure, but mostly, it was one of the best walks of our whole entire trip. I really enjoyed putting together this pretty mood board!

St Bartholomew The Great

St Bartholomew The Great - an impressive Medieval Church - make sure to pop in if it's open. Some scenes of 4 Weddings and a Funeral were filed there.

Smithfield Market - still London's wholesale meat market, in a beautiful Victorian building at the edge of the City
