Sorry for not blogging for so long! We were busy in London, and then we were busy traveling here to Portugal! Thought I should give an update on our last few days in London. Also, we had really bad internet so I had a little trouble with the publishing of the last post. If you haven’t seen it, go check it out!
On Wednesday we got to see Wicked in the afternoon, which was amazing, and I still can’t get the music out of my head! On the way to the theater we stopped at King’s Cross and found platform 9 and 3/4s for a little Harry Potter moment!
One of my favorite things to do in any country is go to the market! I love markets, they’re so photogenic, and the best ones have samples of food! On Thursday we went to the Borough market to have a nice exploration and lunch. I liked tasting the cheese (especially comté), and admiring all the little savory pies and fresh breads. For lunch I had a really, really delicious duck sandwich. The duck was all crispy and salty in small pieces. So good!
After the market, we went to the National Bank Museum for a little bit, mostly so my brother could lift the gold bar that they have there, and then we continued our Harry Potter tour. We got to see the the street that inspired diagon alley and the candy store that inspired honeydukes! They had a lot of Harry Potter sweets there, as well as other sweets in jars lining the walls.
The next stop, the Liberty of London store, was not interesting at all to my brother. He waited in the Liberty café while we browsed the gorgeous fabrics and stationary, and then we all had tea and scones.
