It seems just wrong that we've been here for two years, and this was our first trip to London. Fortunately, the city more than lived up to our expectations, despite giving it about 48 hours to impress us.

Obligatory shot of Queen's guard?

Of course.

Buckingham Palace walk-by?


Celebration of Canada Day, complete with "Canadian" food?

Um, okay.

We also caught "Love Never Dies" (yes, the sequel to "Phantom of the Opera) before it closed, and were rewarded with free ticket upgrades. Then we went and ate all the food we can't get in St Andrews: pho, sushi, and Mexican. And promptly started planning a return trip.

I'll leave you with Matt making his "Big Ben face." Accurate? You decide.


  1. A few things:

    1) You still hadn't been to London?!

    2) More pressingly, where the eff is the token pose with the Peter Pan statue? The only acceptable excuse is "I'm saving that for when you visit."

    3) Matt's, this is a family blog, but I think we all know that's not a Big Ben face. Unless Big Ben's getting a Big Blowjob.

  2. "I'm saving that for when you visit." Obviously. (And, we couldn't find it...although I definitely asked when we were by Buckingham. Because, it's RIGHT around the corner, isn't it?)
