European Adventure- Covent Garden- London

I wanted to share photos of our trip to Europe with you.
My husband, Stan, surprised me with a trip for my birthday. 
This is the view from our hotel, 
London Marriott Hotel / Marble Arch, London.
London-Lisson Grove
When we arrived at London Heathrow Airport,
our daughter, Katie on the right,
was holding Happy Birthday balloons to greet us.
Our other daughter, Carly, on the left.
London- South Marylebone

The London Eye on the right lit up 
and on the left is the BT Tower.
 ~Beautiful Sunrise~
We rode the tube in London the first day.
As you can see I'm so excited being in London!
We walked a lot and saw lots of beautiful places.

It was time to go home and rest up for 
more fun tomorrow!
Lovely day in London!

  1. Hi Jody, wow what a great birthday present! It looks like you had a wonderful time. I love London and was there two years ago for vacation with my family. We did not get to go to Covent Garden Market, but I'll have to go next time. Thanks so much for sharing the lovely photos.

  6. This takes me back to my trip in 2011 with my sister. We were both born in England but had never been back. We strolled Covent Garden one evening, watching a street performer and having pizza in a little spot - maybe the same place you were at.
