Thanks to some previously paranoid words from my husband about announcing over the internet that we’ll be on vacation, I never blog about upcoming vacations.
My absence last week? We went to London and Paris (from 12/26 until 1/2) to celebrate my finishing my graduate school, Jeremy surviving another semester of law school, Jeremy’s birthday and to ring in the new year.
I am POOPED. I’ve uploaded over 400 photos and for anyone that looks through my Flickr pics, I’m trying my best to label the pictures. But there are so frickin’ many… and honestly, I’ve forgotten what some of the buildings were. We were marathon sight-seeing!
If I had to do it all over again, I’d go back in the Spring. We were FREEZING our power walking asses off and missed quite a few things based on the time crunched schedule, lack of planning on our parts and the weather.
I will try to do a separate more in depth blog post about both cities, but for now I wanted to share some photos of Jeremy that made me laugh.
These were all taken in London and I love taking night photos. When you’re able to capture crisp photos of fun lights at night, they make for really interesting pictures. However, I hate pictures of just buildings or objects sometimes so I’d take a photo of the background and then ask Jeremy to step in. When looking through the photos, it looked like Jeremy magically appeared in both scenes.
A view outside of the London Eye. It is a very cool ferris wheel type thing that allows you to see all of London when you reach the top. Unfortunately, it was rainy the day we went so everything was foggy and the windows of the London Eye were very wet (causing not very clear pictures). Aaaanywho – there were christmas lights everywhere and I loved this scenery.
Later on, we walked along the River Thames (between the National Theatre and the Tate Modern) and stumbled across some cute little lit courtyards.
That photo was illegally taken inside the Tate Modern museum. When we came into this room, I was struck by the fact that this ridiculously oversized dining room set looked exactly like OUR dining room set. How fun would it be to actually have a table that large?
I’m not sure what this was supposed to represent. A lot of the exhibits had to do with sexual repression and abuse. I’m not very good at deciphering the underlying meaning of artwork.
Anywho – I hope everyone had a great holiday season!
