London Eye Candy…

…including the London Eye. Can’t believe it’s taken me this long to post something like this, but as you may already know…living somewhere people go on vacation isn’t quite the same as going there on vacation. It’s taken some time to get settled and get jazzed about sightseeing. After school started last week (more musings on that soon), after finally feeling myself again after holiday illness, and after establishing my yoga routine, I’m pouring over the guidebooks to make our London master plan. Six months, which on the front end seemed like an eternity, now seems as though it will go by in the blink of, well, an eye.

I have two new London loves:
  • London walks, a genius way to see the biggies, and more. For example, we did our first one yesterday to take in the main sights and get oriented, and in transit walked by Sting’s London home (more on him this week too). Secretly that may have been my fave thing on the tour. They even offer a James Bond walk – 007 and Ian Fleming’s London, the ‘shaken not stirred’ pub walk – sign me up for that one. Maybe we could pass by where Daniel Craig lives??
  • The British Museum, where I plan to spend lots of time. Took 5 year old for the first time today, specifically to see the Egyptian mummies. There is some serious eye candy from antiquity in this place, oodles of guided tours, children’s activities…and just soaking up that museum vibe makes me feel more sophisticated, even with a 5 year old by my side.
