If there is one takeaway I could give you about London, it is that it is a HUGE city. A couple of days, a couple of weeks, or even a couple of months is too short to see the amazing city. My last few days in London were crowded by museums (which are mostly free by the way!), hanging out at pubs that are on my guide list, and maneuvering around on the tube from one end of the city to the next.
One of the more random things Austin and I did while we were in the UK was head out to see where the Tottenham Hotspur’s play. If you don’t know what that is, don’t worry, you’re not the only one. It is a Futbol team in the UK. I’m guessing some people are reading this thinking:
“It’s not just a Futbol team, Ally. They are a premier league team.”
Sure, okay. However, I was somewhat dragged out to this stadium; and, I mean, what do I know? When I was in Barcelona a few years ago, I went into a store asking for a Real Madrid Jersey for my little brother and was not-so-kindly asked to leave the store… immediately. Austin was like a kid in a candy store at White Hart Lane. I’m pretty confident I saw him skip to the front of the line to get his visitor pass and that alone was worth the trip.
Travel Notice: White Hart Lane is under severe construction. Die hard fans will know this and still go through the treachery of being inside a partially demolished stadium to say they have been to the historical landmark.
Lastly, whoever said print is dying is wrong. I have never been to a place where they have a morning, afternoon and night daily newspaper. Incredible, it really is. Brits love to read the paper everywhere they go in London and I love it.
London, you’re a pretty amazing place, I can’t wait until we meet again.
Next up: Vienna, Austria.
