Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese

Every year, the Kardashian girls get together. Sometimes its small - a weekend in Portland at my sisters, or a few days at home filled with She-She's cooking, sun bathing, and pedicures. Other times its big, which is why this is going to get travel-loggy. 

Day One
- Fly Portland to Toronto, Toronto to London.
- Notting Hill
- Portobello Market
- Tower of London
- Tower Bridge
- Southbank
- Borough Market
- Globe Theatre
- Tate Modern
- St. Peter's
- St. Bride's
- Trafalgar Square
- Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese

After the longest flights of our lives we spent about 45 minutes at Chelsea's flat before she rushed us out the door (keep in mind we've been up for more than 24 hours). As our tour guide/slave driver, I must say, she did an excellent job.
She ran us into the ground EVERYDAY.

So stoked for our trip!

No sleep clearly does wonders for me.

London is getting ready for the Olympics. Here's the countdown:

We ate dinner at Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese, an old pub where Charles Dickens used to write. There is a booth near the fireplace dedicated to him (supposedly where he spent much of his time). It was the coolest pub - tiny and quintessential. The last time it had been added to was 1667. We ordered the Cheshire cheese plate for an appetizer and I got bangers and mash (sausage and potatoes) for dinner. My sister said that bangers and mash is a typical English meal - which is probably why the Brits aren't known for their cuisine.

We stopped for water and a five minute power nap in the Tate.
It was needed.

I have to say, it wasn't a true Kardashian party without Kourtney. Keith's health really didn't allow for her to come and last minute she had to make a really tough decision and not join us. We were devastated to enjoy Europe without her, but so proud of her for choosing to do what's best for her family. But Kourt wanted us to have a good time despite being bummed that she couldn't make it. 
And have a good time we did.
