4. London Underground.

We used the tube to get around everywhere in London. It was so easy to use. I wish we had something like this where we live!

We only had 36 Hours to explore London.  With a limited amount of time, we had to prioritize photography, food, and friends, so we only ended up going to a handful of tourist attractions.

    i was about to say, (before seeing the previous comment) calvin loves london’s fish and chips! and when my sister studied there she watched a play at Shakespear’s Globe theatre (i think).

    i’ve only been to london for less than a day; we had taken a ferry from paris. next time i’ll definitely have to explore further.
