Hi friends, happy Thursday! What a whirlwind of a week it has been. I have been wanting to fill you in on the last part of my trip so here goes part 1…
After Portugal, we went back to London for a few days. In four days, we covered a lot of ground. We arrived fairly late in the evening and were starvinggggg. Whole Foods was a short walk from where we were staying that night so we picked up some groceries and ate salad beasts for dinner. Faceplant.
The next day (New Years Eve) was quite rainy so we took it easy and did some walking when we could – namely to pick up theatre tickets. The theatre in London is often quite pricy but the trick is to take your chances and wait until the last minute to buy tickets. Thankfully, we scored big time (keep reading….)
We ate New Year’s Eve dinner at Fratelli la Bufala — one of our favorite global restaurants! We first went in Miami, then in Italy, Spain and now London. So delicious. I had the “I Paccherri” pasta — thick ribbon fresh pasta, tomato sauce, eggplant, zucchini and parm cheese.
After dinner we headed to the theatre to see Book of Mormon. This was hands down THE BEST play I have ever seen. Seriously. GO. Even if you hate the theatre or musicals… GO. I promise you will not regret it. Such a fabulous experience!
My last bite of 2013 featured the most delicious, soft and chewy cookies from Ben’s. My sister and I split a triple chocolate and a chocolate peanut butter. Swoon.
I can’t think of a better city to be in to welcome the new year. Fabulous fireworks, music, scenery and people. Happy 2014!
The first day of London’s 2014 was not at all surprising: rainy. We started the day with a bowl of delicious porridge from Pret a Manger.
Thankfully the weather cleared up for the last few days of our stay which allowed us to do a lot more. London part two tomorrow…
Questions of the day…
Do you enjoy going to the theatre? Have you seen Book of Mormon?
