Day 114, Year 3 - Rachel In London

This is Rachel whom I have been seeing a lot of recently. We had a trip to London for a day trip and night last Friday ahead of my working on the London Marathon on Saturday and Sunday.

We arrived in Stratford on the train, then headed to Canary Wharf to check-in before heading out to the city centre. I took her on some firsts which included a trip on the Emirates Airline cable-car across the Thames, then the Thames Clipper boat to London Bridge, a visit to Monmouth Coffee next to Borough Market, then onto Gordon's Wine Bar, and finishing the night at the Riding House Cafe for an Espresso Martini cocktail...! This was paired with lots of walking and wandering especially along the river, and Pizza Express dinner near Trafalgar Square.

Another black and white shot of Rachel is here:

Which one do you prefer?

3 good things:

1 - Getting a 'random VIP' upgrade to an Executive Suite upon checking-in to the Hilton Hotel in Canary Wharf
2 - Lovely stroll through some of my favourite places in London
3 - Being able to take Rachel on so many 'firsts' during the day
Rachel looks a sincere and beautiful woman and lovely to see in this photo - her looking outward! Great day! You sound happy. (What was Number 4?)

This one! And please may I have the same guided tour when/if I visit the UK again :) Rachel is gorgeous and i Love the colour on her skin here. If I was you (and if I was male) I'd pop the question ;)

Sounds like a lovely date! I am jealous of anyone who gets near the Borough Market, what a fantastic couple of hours spent there (if only I didn't live on the other side of the Earth ...). She looks lovely and would be very happy with this portrait I'm sure :)

@aliha I'm sure she'd find your comments funny as she doesn't like her self-image in a photo but I am slowly bringing her round to enjoying having it taken :)
