On our way back from Europe, we originally had booked to fly direct from Athens to the US, but when American Air called me a few weeks prior to our trip to tell me that that flight have been totally removed from their routes, we had to rebook through London and add a night to our trip. All in all, we didn’t mind too much as we love London and we know the city well, so it’s easy for us to stop over there.
London is one of those cities that I love stopping through, it has amazing energy, gorgeous architecture, amazing food and lovely people. This particular stop through saw us arriving around 1pm and leaving the next morning around 10am so we booked our favorite hotel for the night, The Ampersand, in South Kensington and spent the afternoon and the following morning wandering some of our favorite areas which included South Kensington and Chelsea and Hyde Park.
As luck would have it, I also ran into Selena from Oh, the Places We Will Go totally randomly at a pub that night and enjoyed meeting and getting to know her and her husband. So all in all, it was a wonderful few hours in London before heading home from Europe!
