My family recently traveled together to London, and while the trip itself was a pleasantly unexpected surprise, what made it even more fun was not having an itinerary other than just wandering (and tubing, busing & training) around and exploring this exciting city. London is a vibrant, sprawling, cosmopolitan place, and what I loved about it was that, even with the number of amazing museums and galleries that filled the city, there seemed to be as much art on display outside the museums’ walls as there was inside it.
