When In London

It was just through a Whatsapp message when my friend Vina invited me to plan a Eurotrip... in two months. First I thought it was a joke because... Europe? In two months? I haven't even stepped out of Asia yet so there's just a tiny chance that I'll have my visa approved. But I was wrong, all thanks to JTB Philippines for smoothly processing our visas from the very first step (blogging about this soon), WE GOT APPROVED! This it it! Our Eurotrip adventure starts... in LONDON!

I've always dreamt about visiting this city someday and being in a plane landing to London... It felt surreal. I'm finally here!!! We explored London for 9 days and here are my top favorites. 

Buckingham Palace

As an avid fan of "The Crown" and everything related to Queen Elizabeth, visiting the palace was on top of the list. We even got to witness the "Changing of the Guard" ceremony.  

The walking tour is a part of the London Sightseeing Bus Pass that we booked here.

London Eye and Big Ben

Well of course, these are really the top spots for London starters but we weren't lucky to see Big Ben because it's currently under renovation- a reason to go back! Haha. But, we get to ride the London Eye so a 360 degree view of the city didn't hurt at all. Book your London Eye ticket here.

Westminster Abbey
Simple, this is where Queen Elizabeth held her coronation. 

. Tower Bridge... That I thought was the London Bridge... HAHA

Hyde Park

Enjoyed roaming around this park the whole afternoon! 

Windsor Castle, Stonehenge and Roman Bath
Three of the most historical places to visit in England. Book this day trip here.

Oxford Street

We're here almost every night to shop! Primark and Topshop are our favorites. Haha.

Borough Market

If you love food. This place is for you.

Harry Potter Studio


There's so much more to explore in London and planning each day's itinerary was no joke! Well not for us when discovered that Klook also offers London tours and activities! Everything went easy peasy after that. :)
