I had the privilege of going to London & Paris for the first time with my best friend, and I fell in love immediately. They're the kinds of places everyone always talks about loving so much, I wasn't sure if they'd be too cliché and over-hyped. Fortunately, that wasn't the case.
Paris was my favorite of the two -- the cafés, restaurants, shops, and the entire aura of the place were just so captivating. And the crêpes. Let's not forget the crêpes. Honor Café, Strada Café, and Holybelly were some favorites for coffee and food in Paris.
London was wonderful as well -- Shoreditch and Borough Market were the highlights of the trip. Just getting to wander around and see Big Ben, Tower Bridge, and shop around the charming parts of town with my best friend were the greatest. I also fell in love with Chiswick. I stayed there before I left town, as it was on the outskirts of London, closer to the airport. It was so quaint and charming, and I wouldn't mind living there one bit. Some favorite coffee shops were Monmouth and Nude Espresso.
Here is a collection of some of my favorite photos from the trip. Just some of my favorite sights like the views from my hotels at sunset or little streets I loved. You can find a link to my workshop at the end of this post. Hope you enjoy!
