It's been so many years since my last visit London and this time I still only had about 2.5 days! However, it was a fun packed 2.5 days of London and I am forever grateful! My (now Husband) and I decided to elope in Portugal (more on this later), and London was a stop over. Luckily, we have some super duper friends that live there and kindly hosted us for our one night in London. In 2 days we packed in quite a bit. First day we took a stroll on Portobello Street, it wasn't too a busy of a day but I got the chance to see some cool antique shops and hundreds of market dealers selling everything from t-shirts to spoons.

Best part, our hosts asked if we wanted burgers for lunch...my husband and I can NEVER say no to a HAMBURGER. They took us to Honest Burgers. What can I say, good ol' simple, burgers made with good ingrediants and sided with rosemary fries - YUM. I truly hit the spot after a long day of traveling.

We continued to stroll and ended up at Kensington Garden. I think that is where Prince William and Princess Kate live, or maybe they stay on the grounds every now an then, not sure. Either way, gorgeous gardens of course packed with tourist, even on a somewhat dreary day.

We continued towards the Victoria and Albert Museum (VAM) where our hosts treated us to the Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty exhibit, (which has now ended). I was not stealth enough to take a bunch of photos because the security was watching everyone like a hawk, but my husband was able to take one! Needless to say, it was amazing, especially the black room where all his accessories, detailed jewel and head dresses were displayed.

After the VAM, it was off to dinner we go! We met up with a few more friends and dined at Blue Bird in Chelsea. A busy, happening, two - three floor space, with a outdoor front patio to be jealous about.

Phew, what a long day. That's about sums up day one. Day two will have to be another time.
