So this is the post where I post a lot of pictures of places I've visited in London. I wanted to keep the picture count low for this post, but I realized that it is really impossible for me to make this a short post, since I've been living in London for around 4 months and been to a ton of places I want to share. All these places are organized in chronological order and no other specific ordering strategy! I will continue on my long a do eurotrip posts after this blog! First I'll just show a map of the places I've been in London! These places include architecture and restaurants that I visited and some places I wanted to visit but didn't have time!
I was tempted to split this post into many parts, but in the end I just went with this really long post!
Here is the tldr photo album link of some of the places I visited in London

These are the places I visited on my three days in London, I did a custom google map adrian style. Also check out Adrian's map log here for more maps and ideas where to visit!
So back to the main post!
