Honeymooning in London

Our honeymoon plans got a little messed up due to the flooding in Bangkok and the fact that Air France just went ahead and cancelled our flight out to Asia. However, K and I were not going to let that stop us from going away to a beautiful place, dining and wining, and doing a little shopping on the side. After much brainstorming on the day after our wedding, two hours before our flight back to NYC, we decided to cancel our Southeast Asia honeymoon and book a new one to London and Paris. We arrived in NYC exhausted and emotionally drained so we went right to bed and woke up Monday morning with the goal of booking a brand new honeymoon in less than 24 hours. I must say, it worked out GREAT!
We left NYC early on Tuesday and headed to Foggy London Town. It was my first time in this wonderful city, but K had been there a couple of times before. We spent four amazing nights at The Ritz London, right in the middle of everything. We dined at Nobu London, Hakkasan, and The Forge to name a few. We did some shopping along Covent Gardens, visited the enormous department stores Harrod's and Harvey Nichols, rode the London Eye (which was a bit terrifying!), saw the famous Changing of the Guards at Buckingham Palace, saw Billy Elliot at the Victoria Palace Theater, and walked and explored the Saturday market at Notting Hill.
