I fell in love with London on my first visit—but not in the traditional way. In 1993, I spent the summer blissfully backpacking through Europe. By the time I arrived in England at the end of August, I was utterly exhausted and ready to go home to the United States. I practically hugged the immigration inspector who spoke to me in English, my mother tongue. The inspector forced me to enter the country so I would stop talking to him.
Until my flight left for the United States, I had an amazing time in London sleeping, eating Taco Bell, and watching American movies without subtitles. That’s all I did. No museums, no history, no art.
I apologize, London, for my poor behavior during my last trip. In an attempt to make things right, my husband and I spent five days in London at the beginning of April 2018. Obviously, I am not a London expert. There are as many itineraries as there are travelers. This one is mine.
