Our first intro to London was on the bus from Oxford. Our driver's name was Richie and he was precious. I've included a photo of him here- the tattoos and hair paired with the accent were just too much. We wanted to smuggle him off the bus! He was very funny and made our 2 hour ride to London tolerable.
Our first day consisted of shopping (surprise) near our hotel. We were staying on near the High Street Kensington tube stop and there were lots of fun stores, including Muji and French Connection- both of which took lots of my money... We followed that up with our first trip to G-A-Y, an infamous bar in the city. Very fun :).
Day two consisted of meeting up with our friend Vince again- it's so nice to see more familiar faces! We went to the Tate Modern Museum, which I loved, and then had champagne tea at Harvey Nichols. It really was one of my favorite days on the whole trip- our tea was on the roof and we had an amazing view of the city. I loved it!
Today we did some more shopping and I bought my new favorite jeans at FCUK. I love them :).
