Lightning Travels – Londontown

If you follow us on Instagram (@lightningwines), you probably noticed I was in England a couple of weeks ago. It was a whirlwind trip of work and fun as I crammed in my favorite things to do while in the London-area.

My trip started off with a Sunday roast dinner after landing in Britain.  It was really my normal Sunday brunchin’ time but I jumped right in with a pint and a huge plate of food drowned in delicious brown gravy.  I was awake so early most mornings that I was able to take some great long runs and explore in the quiet cool before the hustle and bustle.  I love these old cobblestone streets.

London brought the rain but I had a fantastic dinner at The Lighterman (Granary Square, King’s Cross) – people-watching over the square before finally tossing my horrible travel umbrella away.

While in Harvey Nichols, I had a great chat about whisky in the Liquor/Spirits department and ended up with a very nice souvenir for R Lightning! I also snapped this photo of a prepared cocktail. I thought Brits hated peanut butter?




Until next time!  XXOO Brooke
