Our trip to London was such a good time – although we were both still fighting some nasty colds, we enjoyed the energy of this vibrant city and made the most of our five days there. Here are the highlights from our second day.
We struck off to Portobello Road as Scotty had never visited it and I knew he would like it. The colorful buildings, eclectic shops, and people rushing about make this little pocket of London especially charming.
The wares that were being sold along Portobello Road are enough to make anyone wish they had a remodeling project…along with an unlimited budget.
Due to our colds, we were in constant search of bowls of warming soups which more often than not led us to Wagamama but here in Portobello we had some delicious Tom Yum at a great little restaurant on the second floor of a building with good views of all the activity. After lunch we headed to the London Eye and stumbled upon the Wine and Cheese Festival! There were all sorts of cheeses from all over Europe and it was fun to sample a few.
The festival was followed up by a walk along the Thames – the lighting was amazing as the sun was just setting.
