my favorite memories from london:
1. chunneling into london from paris while my sister sobbed her way through harry potter and the deathly hallows
2. having an hour long conversation with the same sister about the phenomenon that is kim kardashian’s bottom half (that would cheer anyone up after some post-potter depression, would it not?)
3. getting chills as we arrived at king’s cross
4.  sleeping the day away in the comfy hotel bed while my family rode the london eye (fear of heights + stomach bug = one big london eye veto)
5. visiting platform 9 3/4 (i like to pretend i was the only one who broke through the barrier…when in reality, all 3 of us did)
6. venturing out at the crack of dawn, half-asleep (as evidenced by the above photo, which even black and white editing cannot mask), to visit abbey road with my parents
7.  girls’ night at out at mamma mia!

I want to run away to London. Maybe explains why I applied for a job there.

wait, hold up. You can actually break through the barrier of Platform 9 3/4? And I'm not talking about Harry Potter breaking through the barrier, but real person breaking through the barrier?! I'm going to London for the first time this summer and you just got me beyond excited.

I visited London last year and absolutely loved it. Unfortunately, I didn't see Platform 9 3/4 :(

Loved King's Cross, the Eye, Mamma Mia,Notting Hill & Abbey Rd!! So I guess I can say I loved the whole 4 days we were there!!

I love Harry Potter and was in London for a full month and never went to Kings Cross!!!! How did that happen? Uhhhh, hopefully I can fix that this summer!

Lottie said...

I love platform 93/4 what a genius idea--and I have been there so many times.

And i was shocked that my other half didn't know it existed, where had he been?! And we live in London, so he has no excuse ;)
