At all of the crosswalks in London you'll see Look Left or Look Right written on the pavement to tell you which direction the oncoming traffic is approaching from. Even with these signs it was a bit confusing because the cars, bikes and motorcycles seemed to be flying in from every direction. Like all the tourists trying to act like we knew what we were doing we would look right, decide to cross even though the signal was telling us to "Wait," run across the street to the sound of blaring horns and barely escape with our lives. (Spoiler alert: We survived.)

But even when we weren't coming dangerously close to getting run over, Look Left and Look Right consumed our days. Look to the left and you'll see the Houses of Parliament, look right and you'll see Big Ben. Look to the left and you'll see the Tower of London, to your right Tower Bridge. Trying to fit all of the top London attractions into two days of sightseeing had us looking left, right, up, down and back around again and we still only saw a fraction of all of this city has to offer. It's so big (so much bigger than I expected) and filled with history and pubs at every turn. We really enjoyed our time here (maybe a little too much on the Camden Pub Crawl), but now we have to say goodbye to London and bonjour to Paris.

You got to visit so many places in such a short time. Def making the most of your time there. The pubcrawl looks like soo much fun. Did you make some British friends?

We did see a lot in a short time. The few British people we met had only recently moved there.
