Battle of the Bridges

Saturday was spectacularly sunny. After a long week, and in preparation for two weeks of being entrenched in planning and partaking in our big meeting in Berlin, the hubs and I needed a nice day. That it was, lacking in plans and full of possibilities, we set out for Borough Market. Unsurprisingly, the market was jam packed. We sampled a few stalls (must go back for poppyseed bread!), purchased dark and milk chocolate covered honeycomb, along with some sort of rice/potatoes/cauliflower concoction and found a bright spot to just sit. It was SO nice…to just sit… Note to self: chill out.

Carrying on with our aimless day, we walked along the riverside towards the bridge, and then across to Tower Hill. While I will always have a special place in my heart for the Golden Gate Bridge, it comes in a close second to this London landmark, which opened in 1894- a mere 120 years ago!  The hubs disagreed wholeheartedly, I’ll let you be the judge!

London’s riverside scene…

Sights were seen, tube rides were taken (some extra ones due to “poorly marked signs”), and wine was washed down with burrata. I went to bed feeling so lucky to live in a city where both sightseeing or staying in your jammies all day is fully possible and acceptable. Needless to stay, Sunday was spent doing the latter!
