Why I Love London

If you are looking for Link Party #31

 I’m fortunate enough to have a husband who has business in London every year.  I love London!  We have gone every year for 5 years now.  London has amazing sites to see and so much history.  The people are so friendly and very polite!  The museums are AMAZING and FREE!!!

A few other things I love about London….

–  Hearing children say, “Mummy” for Mommy in their English accent.

–  When you exit the tube a female voice says, “Mind the Gap”.  The gap is about a 6″ space between the train and the cement!  I don’t know how anyone could accidentally fall in the gap.

–  Visiting the food court at Harrods.  It is beautiful! I would show you pictures but you aren’t allowed to take them.  They have food sections from all over the world!  It is like art!

– If you go down the stairs you stay on the left and when you go up the stairs, you stay on the right.

I love the fact that when we go now, because we have seen all of the “tourist sites”, we get to enjoy just being “a part of London”.  Here are a few pics that I took while we were there (it was a rainy visit this time… but it didn’t stop us from walking the beautiful parks!)

On a sunny, warm day, this park would be full of people (pastie white) soaking up the sun!

You can see that Spring is in the air by the blooms on this tree.

Tulips blooming in Hyde Park.  Absolutely gorgeous.

Londoner’s going about their business…
See Big Ben?
Yes, the double-decker buses are everywhere.

The cutest little taxis.  Looks like a wedding taxi?
I didn’t quite understand that.

Our hotel.
Fly Union Jack, Fly!
The bar at the Dukes Hotel is known for their Martini Bar.
I swear it’s not why I picked this hotel… but their dirty martini’s are to DIE FOR.

See the pigeons on the fence?
1, 2, 3, 4…
Wonder what they were thinking?

Count down to the Olympics!

The largest “square” in London and considered the Heart of London.

A wedding going on at The Abbey.
Must of been a “someone” to be married at The Abbey!

My hubby and I in front of Harrods.  LOVE that place.
Why does he have his fingers in my arm pit?
(Ignore this part… now that I’ve pointed it out to you!!!!) ha! :-).

Hope you enjoyed a bit of London.
