It is true, you can never have too much money in London, but the most enjoyable time I usually have is just walking the garden-lined streets. So much history in every nook and cranny. You could walk for miles and never get bored. Packing and leaving in the AM. It’s been a bittersweet visit, but the city itself seems more gorgeous than I remember it to ever be.
