This month I vowed to get my London tourist on and kind of accomplished this after going on a Bloody Mary tour with my friend Rachel. I have named this tourist trail 'The Bloody Mary' tour because we had made it all about drenching ourselves in pretty strong Bloody Marys along the way.
The schedule begins with a few Bloody Marys on the tall statue between the Lions at Trafalgar Square then continues with a saunter down the stretch passing Downing Street to Westminster. It ends at Southbank for the final rounds of Bloody Marys after passing over the bridge.
A week later I took my friend Nikki and her fabulous mum Michelle on a similar route (incorporating Buckingham Palace) when they came to visit. It was Nikki's first time in London EVER.
Here are some of my favourite tourist shots:

And obviously a few things you MUST do if embark on the Bloody Mary Tour:
|DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT forget the Bloody Marys!|
|Demand some privacy while making an important call.|
|The Big Ben Selfie.|
|Take at least one decent perception trick photo.|
|Fail at perception trick photos. See me with the Downing Street sign in my palm? Uhmmmm? Great double chin though...|
|Always make at least ONE gif to keep the magic alive.|
