10 Days – England, Scotland, and Iceland – Introduction


We had a total of four days in London and basically visited every important landmark that we wanted to. I’m more of a person that likes to walk around in the city instead of seeing museums, however we still did see some important ones. Here’s a full list of every important place we visited in London:

  • Tower of London
  • Tower Bridge
  • The Shard
  • London Eye
  • Big Ben
  • Westminster Abbey
  • Palace of Westminster
  • British Museum
  • Natural History Museum
  • Trafalgar Square
  • Piccadilly Circus
  • Buckingham Palace
  • St Paul’s Cathedral
  • Wembley Stadium
  • Royal Albert Hall

I shared my initial excitement here, and as I mentioned, I totally loved London. It’s an amazing, gorgeous city full of everything: I don’t think I’ve ever felt as alive anywhere else, basically the constant vibe and life of people is what I loved. The city is just downright beautiful and while it can be super crowded in the most obvious places, there are still areas where you can peacefully relax. I think that out of all the European cities I’ve been to already, London is my absolute favourite.

I did mention that I’m ‘exploring’ various European cities since I plan on living somewhere in Europe after I finish uni, and I think London might be it… I’m not 100% sure yet (maybe not even 90% sure), but there’s something about the place… something that makes me already want to go back.

All in all, we had a great time in London and I wouldn’t hesitate to go back. We walked most of the city and were super tired afterwards, but that way we were able to save money on transportation and got to see a majority of the city by foot.

Enjoy the pictures!
