Greetings from the other side of the Atlantic! I flew across the pond late Wednesday night and have been spending most of my time today checking out the city with Gianna Masetti of The Noob Comic.
Our first stop was a quick walk up to the Greenwich Royal Observatory and got to stand next to the Prime Meridian. Next came a ferry trip down the Thames to see several noteworthy London landmarks, such as the Tower Bridge, the Globe Theater, the Tower of London, the London Eye, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, among other things.
We continued walking all over downtown London, checking out other such memorable locations as Westminster Abbey, Leicester Square, Piccadilly Circus, Soho, Chinatown, Oxford Street, and a glimpse of Buckingham Palace. I was able to see several landmarks in just a few short hours on my first day in London, and I can’t wait to get back and take a longer look around this historic city. Fortunately, I have five more days to spend here!
