Sarah and I only "met" through blogging a few short months ago, but we instantly began emailing back and forth and quickly talked about meeting up.
A couple of weeks ago we were able to make it happen. I hopped on the train to London, my first solo attempt. I was a bit late after trying to figure out parking at the train station and a delayed train. Luckily it didn't cut too much into our time.
We chatted away and had a nice stroll along the Thames through Southbank.
We stopped to look at The Undercroft graffiti. Impressive!
I have a thing for merry go rounds!
We thought about taking it for a spin, but 2 grown women on the merry go round with no one else riding seemed a little weird. Ha!
And who doesn't like gazing at the London Eye with the sound of bagpipes in the air?!
Big Ben, you are just so majestic!
We finished off with a long chat over lunch at Tortillas, a Tex-Mex restaurant! It was so good!
Sarah, I had a blast! Can't wait to do it again!! And help me wish Sarah a big "Happy Birthday" today!! Hope you're day is special, Sarah!!
I was recently featured on InterNations, a global expat community website. If you're interested in meeting up with expats in your area, you should check out their website.
