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

Alight! Thanks to whoever has the patience to read the whole blog to this point. I doubt many people will be able to find the end of this blog~ but thanks anyways! This blog is written to whoever is visiting London and interested to see all the hidden architectural gems in London. ( I consider brutalism amazing gems in London) Anyways I will most likely continue on my previous euro backpacking blog after this week if I have time. If not then... I'll write about my studio trip to Colombia next then. This blog took me a considerably long time since I had to organize all the pictures and then deal with the super laggy internet while uploading all these photos. Anyway let me know if you need more details to go to a place I mentioned above!
