A Weekend in London

March 5, 2015 / by Liz

This past weekend, Hitch and I ventured off to London for a weekend away. We stayed with two lovely friends, and ate all of the food that we physically could. I’ve come to realize that there are many things I enjoy about visiting new places, but my favourite part of traveling is eating. And drinking a little wine too :) Here are a few snaps from the weekend.
