Now that we are approaching our 1-year mark in London, I (finally) feel like I can share a comprehensive guide to what to eat, drink, see, and do in one of the largest and most iconic cities in the world. Sharing recommendations for London is challenging not just because there is SO much history and culture to explore, but also because the city is geographically very spread out. This can make it a bit harder to see everything, so I also have a few tips for getting around.
Between getting married, moving to the UK, visiting 8 countries, and celebrating plenty of professional accomplishments, 2021 was, without a doubt, the craziest and busiest year of our lives. We decided pretty early on that we wanted to stay in London for the holidays so that we could finally take a moment to relax, as well as experience the magic of London at Christmas.
Why London? I work for a management consulting firm, and my team specifically works on internal transformation projects...we're essentially the in-house consultants for a consulting firm. It's a global team, so there are quite a few options for transferring to other large offices. I've always wanted to live abroad and after the craziness/uncertainty of 2020, Andy and I decided to take advantage of an opportunity that will make it easier for us to spend as much time as possible traveling throughout Europe.
