A Fast Paced City

 We are back!!
So where did we go?
After many long hours spent flying,

My son & I landed in...

It was just the two of us, off on an adventure.
An early 16th birthday adventure to be exact!

London is a city for the senses.
It is fast paced, yet somehow in the hustle and bustle,
 there is certain ebb & flow....a rhythm to it all.

The tube was a learning experience for Indiana, 
but he soon became quite the expert,
 learning to stand on the right whilst Londoners rushed passed on the left!
Planning out our journey for the next destination.
"Piccadilly line to King's Cross, switch to Northern Line mom then 2 stops to Camden Town", 
he had our routes down pat!!

A double decker bus tour provided a great view of London's landmarks!

And of course because you have to eat when you are on vacation...
Our first meal was a teenage favorite...Burgers!!

  And a proper burger it was!!
Byron burgers in Camden...delicious!
Fresh Scottish beef, simply prepared to let the natural flavor shine through.
Chips with the skin on and a great atmosphere.
What a welcome first meal to start our British adventure!

Lots more food and sights to come...

So, glad you had a fun time.

I am so excited to hear more :)

What a burger, it is huge! Oh and Camden Town, did you go to Camden Locks??

I once lived at the Angel (you would have passed it on your way to Camden), very briefly in a Catholic hostel for young, single women run by Nuns, oh that was a joy, LOL!!!

Have a lovely weekend, cheers, T. :)
