London was a whirlwind of walking (averaging six miles a day), taking boat rides (on the Regent’s Canal, the Thames twice, and even a paddleboat on the Serpentine), running in Hyde Park, exploring markets (Camden Town was our favorite), and more.
Lisa enjoyed the theater on four occasions: Hamilton (excellent, again), Pretty Woman (okay but needing a little work), Back to the Future (surprisingly clever), and SIX (phenomenal).
We visited Greenwich and straddled the Prime Meridien.
We toured Tower Bridge.
We went to the top of the Walkie Talkie Building at sunset.
We embraced the iconic Madame Tussaud’s.
We climbed the Marble Arch Mound, and discovered a laser structure museum inside.
Lisa visited Kensington Palace.
We took a narrowboat ride on the Regent’s Canal.
We visited Camden Market.
We looked at art in the National Gallery.
We visited the Natural History Museum.
When we got back to Vermont, we literally collapsed from exhaustion.
We’ll be going back in April when we attend Aryk’s COVID-delayed graduation from Keele University. There’s still a lot left to see!
