Babymoon Series: London, England

Remember when Dan and I went on our epic honeymoon across Europe last summer? Well, it was amazing, but it was cut short due to a family emergency. We never made it to England or Poland... both of which were high on our list. We are so thankful for Dan's accommodating schedule, as we were able to head back to Europe in March to finish our honeymoon - except this time around, we called it a babymoon - and it was so much fun!

We started out in London. Okay, that's a lie. We started out in Ramstein, Germany, but that's another story for another day. I promise I will eventually chronicle our Space A adventures. But for now... we begin in London.

Dan and I had London on our list for two reasons: 1) he went there for some Air Force training in 2012 (during the Summer Olympics, might I add - JEALOUS!!!)... so he was planning on showing me around since I'd never been... and 2) We have great friends who live there! Actually, they don't just live there... they are from there, and we affectionately call them "the Brits". You may remember my post about Lucy from when they visited us in Colorado in 2013... so we just HAD to go see them!

During our time in London, our friends had to work... so we played tourist around the city during the days and hung out with them in the evenings. We had a lot of fun and saw so many cool things! I wouldn't say that London is a favorite of mine... I prefer Paris, Rome, and Athens to it... but it was awesome being able to see a new place!

Also, don't mind our jet-lagged faces in these photos... we were TIRED after all that traveling.

Overall, we had a great time exploring the city and spending time with our friends - and they will actually make an appearance in the Cambridge photos... I promise! 

Have you ever been to London?
What's your favorite thing to do there?



  1. London looks like such a cool city to see!

  2. How fun! London is definitely on my bucket list of places to visit.

  3. What a fun trip! My favorite thing in London was riding the London Eye. Looks like you had a great trip!

  4. So fun. I've been to London years ago. I want to go back and do a Henry VIII tour.

  5. What a fun babymoon!!!! We went to NYC and DC for our "babymoon" (we planned it before I was pregnant so it was coincidence that it ended up being a babymoon) ;-)

  6. Fun!! You are so brave traveling overseas pregnant! I'm tired just looking at all you did!

  7. Back in college we always planned to go to London for the Olympics. Then SoldierMan joined the Army and that was out! It's still at the very top of our Bucket List! All to say, I'm super jealous and loved reading about your trip!
