Christmas in London
Who doesn't love a quick weekend getaway before the holiday madness? I know we do! Last year, at the end of November, we took a long weekend trip to London to start our christmas shopping and take in some big city decorations. No surprise, we had the best trip ever.
One of the main reasons we went to London this time of year was to go see the Harry Potter play "The Cursed Child". Both Jess and I are huge Harry Potter fans and when the tickets went on sale Jess got online immediately and (somehow) actually managed to get two tickets to both shows before they sold out. Of course, I had no choice but to go with her for this once in a lifetime experience! We're now hooked on theatre and have since gone back to London to see another show.
Not going to lie, there wasn't a whole lot of relaxing on our weekend getaway. Our trip fell on Black Friday, so, naturally, we had to fit in some shopping. We managed to get to Zara, and purchased our jackets that were featured in our Fall Jacket post, before it all got a little too crazy and we had to get out of there.
After many weekend trips together and a lot of travelling, we have a good idea of what we like to fit into a trip.
Here are our go-tos for a holiday weekend away:
Make time for relaxing lunches
Weekend trips can go super fast. There's always so much to do and see but we always take the time for good food!
