Mini Film: All Around London Town!

Thank you all once again for following along on our backpacking trip. This trip has definitely been an adventure I will never, ever forget, so I am so grateful to be able to share our experiences with you. Since I just wrapped up posting about our three days in London (you can read all the posts here!) I wanted to go ahead and share the mini film Derek created for this city! This two-minute snippet is so much fun, so I hope you all enjoy!

Roaming Around Notting Hill & Shoreditch

I had read so many good things about Notting Hill — not to mention falling in love with the movie itself — so I was extra excited to explore this lovely neighborhood during our last day in London.

Ah, so many shades of color. From pale pastels to bold and bright hues. My eyes became smitten with each new street we roamed.

All Around London Town: Part II

I am super excited to be sharing even more on our time in London. In case you missed Part I, you can find it right here. With the amount of pictures we managed to snap while in this city, you’d think we were there for at least several weeks. Nope. Hard to believe it was just a mere three days. Yet, those were probably some of the busiest three days of my life. SO much walking. But, don’t worry, we treated ourselves to probably too many sweets for all of those steps, so it was allll worth it!

All Around London Town: Part I

After saying our goodbyes to Paris, we hopped on the train so we could make our way to London. Funny story about our time in London. We had arrived thinking we had four full days. So, once we got all settled into our Airbnb, we started plotting and planning everywhere we wanted to visit in the city. Derek spent a lonnnng time drafting an email of all the places we wanted to discover during our time here. And I mean a longggg time. Like hours. That night, we went to bed super early, as we knew we had a packed four days ahead.

Except, little did we know we had planned ALL wrong.

Mini Film: Living a Parisian Dream!

I am so excited to share another mini film with you all today. It’s been a few weeks now since Derek finished this video clip, and I’ve been dying to share it ever since. And since I’ve just spent the last two weeks or so sharing posts from our time in Paris, I thought now is the perfect time!

This particular film is by far my absolute favorite. I don’t know what it was about Paris, but this city really drew me in and left me head over heels in love with it. So much goodness. All around. And I miss it so much!

Roaming Around the Palace of Versailles

Before leaving Paris, Derek and I made sure to squeeze in a trip to the beautiful Palace of Versailles. I had visited this opulent chateau about eight years ago (!!) during my first trip to Paris, and still to this day I can vividly remember my jaw dropping as I approached the golden gates of this estate. I was in complete shock. To think people used to live here just blew my mind!

To describe this palace as extravagant would be an understatement. Enormous doesn’t even cut it. No, I don’t think anything really compares to Versailles, really. I mean, you can’t even fit the entire chateau in the frame of a photograph for goodness sake.
