LONDON DAY 1.
Brian and I went to London for a long weekend.
we arrived at our hotel in trafalgar square at noon
on a friday – we basically went to bed on thursday
night in the plane and woke up during touchdown
this was our first time in the UK and we decided to
spend our first day at the Ritz for Afternoon Tea!
i’m glad we did this on our first day because it set
up the mood for the whole weekend so perfectly!
afternoon tea was amazing (brian LOVES tea with
cream & sugar and he’s been drinking it since he
was little haha it was so weird for me on our first
couple of dates because i’ve never met a boy who
ordered hot tea with dessert during a date!
so the Ritz was everything i expected. everyone was
so nice & took their time. coming from NY where
everything is so rushed, it was definitely refreshing.
we were served salmon, ham, egg salad & cucumber
sandwiches. but my favorite were the SCONES! omfg.
they served them warm & fresh from the oven and
it was like heaven in my mouth with the clotted cream
and fruit preserves!
after we had our fill, we decided to get lost and walk
around like shameless tourists & ended up on bond
street. it was a great first day!
let’s be friends! <3
