Quick Trip to London

Last Friday, the bird and I hopped over to London for a quick weekend trip.

It was so easy from Dublin that I was surprised we hadn't done it before. The flight was only about 45 minutes!
 
We didn't do a lot of the 'normal' London site seeing this trip since we plan to come back with my brother when he visits in March. But our hotel was right next to Big Ben and the London Eye, so I managed to snap a couple pictures.
We walked a lot, stumbling upon lots of great neighborhoods, streets and shops.
The main reason for our trip was to see The Book of Mormon. I had been dying to see it... and was definitely not disappointed.
It was so good; absolutely hilarious! I highly recommend it!

We stayed at Park Plaza Westminster Bridge and I would definitely recommend this hotel too. The rooms were very nice and so spacious. It's also in a great location for walking or taking the Tube.

Love London! For all the times I've been to the UK, we spent most of our time in Scotland and only went to London once. We did all the tourist-y stuff though and it was great! Tower of London, Trafalgar Square, Buckingham Palace, Crown Jewels, and I would highly recommend Madame Tussad's - it was so much fun! :))
