When we went to London to see an NFL game. Part II
The next two days were just straight up football days. We had a Chiefs meet-up at a pub downtown that was really fun. & then the day before the game, we got a walk through tour of Wembley Stadium thanks to a relative, & the guys loved it so much. It really was super cool!
& then it was game day. The morning was sooo foggy, I was really nervous what it was going to be like for the game. It was fun to see people all over the grounds, eating food & buying NFL jerseys [any jersey you wanted!]. I got a really awesome Chiefs t-shirt that said City of Fountains. Even Visit KC was there representing.
Spoiler alert - the Chiefs won, but it was a really interesting experience in the game. Because it's hosted in the UK, there really isn't team loyalty, they're just excited to watch an NFL game. So there were SOO many jerseys & so many people excited to watch. Then during the game, everyone got excited when one of the teams scored, but it's not as fast paced as soccer, so you could tell it was quiet & everyone was a little bored.
We started off on the field for practice & warm up. Again, the guys loved it. & I got a great pic of Travis Kelce. Great success all around.
Nate's parents went back to KC after the game & Nate & I spent 3 days in London. We both really love London & it was really nice to be in the city. We ate breakfast one morning at an Aussie Cafe we found, actually we went pretty far out of our way to get there, but it was so worth it. Do I remember what it was called or where it was? no! but it was delicious.
Our home base was in Kensington, we stayed at The Ampersand, which we booked through our usual, Hotel Tonight. From there we basically just walked around neighborhoods, found lunch in whatever neighborhood we were in, got coffee & took photos. We LOVED Shoreditch, Notting Hill [Granger & Co is THE BEST. Hands down.] & just being in Central London. One night someone told us that we could use our Tube pass to take a Cable Car over the river & O2 Arena. So we made our way down there, of course it was the night of the U2 concert, so Nate was almost ready to buy us tickets. But really it was a cool view of the city & you can just go over & come right back!
