The Wandering Gujju, Day 1: London, England

Today, I’m sharing my experiences during our most recent trip to England, France, and Italy. My husband and I had such a great time. This was the first time my husband has traveled outside of the county.

We started off our vacation in London, England on August 25th. After arriving in the afternoon, we immediately left to start exploring. We took the tube (subway) to Westminister to see Big Ben and Westminister Abbey.

After exploring the area a little bit, we walked across the bridge to ride the London Eye, the largest ferris wheel in the world. It was pretty interesting! One capsule can hold over 20 people. What?! The view from the top was breathtaking.

After our ride on the London Eye, we decided to get dinner at Dishoom and OMG the food was absolutely amazing!!! I found this Indian restaurant on yelp and it was the name that really caught my eye. Dishoom in Hindi is a sound effect of a gun being shot, especially common in Bollywood movies. LOL.

We didn’t realize how popular this restaurant was until we arrived. We had to wait in line for an hour. They served us mint tea and chai. I was so excited to see that Chai was being served, but it definitely didn’t taste fresh. It tasted more like it had been made hours in advance and then reheated. 😦

But anyways, the food was so delicious and they provided great service. The spices really hit the spot because of course, being Indian, we had to get our spice on!

Overall, during our ten days in Europe, we found that London was the best place for us to find a variety of foods that were vegetarian. Over the next few weeks, I will share a few more amazing places that we visited during our stay here.
