London in 48 hours - My Favourites City Guide

If you have never been to London, you really need to go there. At least for a short citytrip, just to see for yourself what so many people love dearly.

And if you have been to London before, you should go again! Because there’s always something new to discover and experience.

I’ve been in London for a total of 17 days now (yes, keeping track) and I can’t wait to go there again. There are still quite a few things on my ‘London To-Do List’.

From the times I’ve been there, I’ve distilled a list of where I would go if I only had 48 hours to discover London. I’ll show you around London and show you the things I think one needs to see when in London. All the best highlights and the most beautiful places to see, some shops to go to and streets to walk.

For pretty much all the places we’ll visit that require an entrance ticket, it is advised to buy a ticket online. Not only does this save time standing in line (except for the London Eye), but it usually also saves a few Pounds.

On a side note: this guide assumes you have a full 48 hours at your disposal. So probably it’s best to arrive the evening before ‘day 1’ and go back home the morning after ‘day 2’. A shorter trip is of course possible, but then I’m sure you’ll feel the need to come back again. Although I think most people feel like they have to come back again anyways.

 

Let’s get this journey started. And where to start better than with a full English breakfast. J

Souvenirs from Stockholm

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

I’m back in The Netherlands!

It was sad to say goodbye to the city that has been my home for 5 months, but it was good. The last week I visited several museums, enjoyed the city from a viewpoint and walked it’s streets to say goodbye.

Coming home was something I really looked forward to: hugging my family again, seeing my grandparents and of course hugging, kissing and playing with my ferret Mexy after missing her for 5 months.

Pretty much as soon as I touched ground in The Netherlands, my whole study abroad period seemed like a big nice dream. Everything around me is familiar and I’m used to it, it’s as if I woke up from a 5 month sleep and hit the play button again.

Luckily I have my family who visited Stockholm, so they can pinch me: It wasn’t just a dream, I really lived in Stockholm.

And I have brought some souvenirs back home to remember my time there. Let me show you what I bought to keep the memory alive.
