Last year, I spent some of the best two weeks leading up to 2017 in London. So I wanted to rewind back to some of the spots I visited and some tips if you plan on spending some time there.
Jan. 1, 2017, I visited Hillsong in London. There was no better way for me to begin the new year than to start it worshipping Jesus. My favorite moments when exploring new places and meeting new faces is taking a step back and realizing how big God really is and soaking in all the beauty He has surrounded us with.
After Hillsong, the American girl inside me went to Five Guys. Usually, I would never choose a chain restaurant that we have in the states to eat at, but we were hungry(what’s new?) and it was right next door to church.
Tip 1 |Maybe don’t go to Five Guys as the first meal in a new country, but do remember their fries never disappoint.
After dinner, I saw my very first real London telephone booth.. and it was even better than the one at Universal Studios .. 😉
Interrupting this post to show you the cutest face of all London, Lexi.
This next moment for me was a dream. I remember walking up the stairs from the London underground, looking up and BOOM there was good ol’ Ben. It’s so neat seeing what I’ve only previously seen in postcards (& Google) right there in front of my eyes.
There’s more of Ben to come..
Something I love to do in new cities is to visit the libraries! Most places I’ve explored have been (touristy) busy cities, so taking a minute to stop in a library is a must for me.
Tip 2 | Find a cozy spot to relax in the middle of all that exploring. My personal fav is bookstores or cozy coffee shops.
