There are places blessed with sun-kissed Summers. Summers bursting with colors they look like explosive fireworks in broad daylight. Summers so alive our world goes into one euphoric merry-go-round spin. One such Summer I found in London. Join me today, as we go travel the globe and experience what Summer feels like in London.
Our adventure begins at Trafalgar Square.
Time to stretch those legs and climb the Nelson’s Column. I promise the view on top will be worth it.
Who wants to check the priceless Art works of Leonardo da Vinci and Van Gogh at the National Gallery?
Anyone hungry? How about shopping? Let’s check out Covent Garden Market. It’s a great place to eat, shop and be entertained.
Though I didn’t see the queen that day, I get to stand next to my very own queen. We don’t need royal blood to feel like a royalty. In our home, we are the queen and kings. The very house we live in is our simple version of a castle.
It’s almost time for the Changing of Royal Guards at the Buckingham Palace. We need to hurry up. It’ll be a long walk.
Okay, that was a bit crazy. Time to cool down for some refreshing fruit bubble tea at Brewbox.
Still hungry? We did a lot of walking after all. How does a newly baked treat and brewed coffee at West Cornwall Pasty sounds?
Just several blocks away, stands the grand Big Ben. From afar it looks small.
Let’s have an adrenaline kick and see London from above inside one of the capsule of the London Eye. Don’t worry, it’s not a time capsule!
Ready for more action? How about a close encounter with Jack the Ripper at the London Dungeon. If you are scared of the dark and closed small spaces, it’s okay to say no. We’ll meet at the exit.
Our colors of Summer won’t be complete without a trip to the beautiful coastal town of Bournemouth in the south coast of England.
Considered as one of Europe’s best beaches, Bournemouth sums up what Summer is all about.
It was the hottest, brightest Summer weekend that year. The beach was packed. Everyone was trying to get a piece of water fun, sunshine and hopefully some great looking tan. I was simply trying to get the best of Summer memories as much as I can. Who knows when I’ll be back in U.K. for a Summer like this.
It’s funny how when meeting for the first time, my son and his cousin were shy and quiet. Several hours later, they were inseparable, holding hands and telling stories like they were long best friends. Summer does that and more.
Summer is having an amazing time with friends and family. It’s about creating new exciting memories with people closest to us as well as those we get to know along the way.My Summer in London and the U.K. was truly unforgettable not because of what I saw but because of the family I created a special bond with. Leaving was hard, even harder when I saw my son and his cousin cried because they realized the last dinner we spent with her family was also a time to say goodbye. So we made a promise that one day soon, when fate allows, we will go back and once again experience the many colors of Summer in London.I hope you enjoyed our Summer getaway in London and Bournemouth. I hope our travelogue brought the colors of Summer right to your doorsteps.
Once again, “Summer is not a season. It is a feeling.” Don’t let the weather outside your window contain the Summer in you.
Thank you for being a great travel companion. The more people celebrating Summer, the more fun it becomes.
