|That's me in front of Parliament!|
Honestly, I didn't expect a lot from London. I anticipated it would be just like New York, or Madrid, or Barcelona, or any other big city I've visited: dirty, crowded, generic.
I was wrong.
|My first glance at Big Ben!|
Apart from the weather, London is gorgeous. The old-fashioned houses, the palaces and fortresses, the shops, the parks, everything. But what makes it especially fun is that no matter where you turn, you recognize something iconic: Big Ben, the Tower Bridge, Westminster Abbey, etcetera.
But what I love most about London is it's literary history. Whether the home of a renowned writer or the setting of a classic, London has featured prominently in the book world.
|Yes, that would be Buckingham Palace.|
Over the next few days, I'm going to give a little virtual tour of London for Book Lovers. So stop by! If you know of anything interesting, tell me in the comments: I have until Sunday to thoroughly explore :)
