Sisk Family European Vacation: Harrods of London
Last week, I shared the last of my photos in Paris from our “family vacation” in Europe. Rather than fly straight back to the United States, we took the high speed train back to London. 

By this point in our trip, we were a bit tired…so much left to see, but our energy level just wasn’t there. Nonetheless, we decided to check out Harrods…I mean, our taxi driver said we just HAD to have a doggie bag. 

Harrods is one of the most popular department stores/shopping centers in London…maybe the world. It is located on Brompton Road in Knightsbridge…and it is an experience to say the least. 

While I didn’t walk through the entire store, I did receive a multi-page directory. This place is HUGE. Just to give you an idea…the store sits on 4.5 acres and occupies over one million square feet of retail space in over 300 separate departments…most of which I can barely afford (well I could afford, but I’ve been spoiled by TJ Maxx). I certainly didn’t plan to do any shopping during our trip, but let’s be honest – I really did need a doggie bag.

After wandering through the store a bit, I saw a sign that said “Christmas Shop.” Yep…I bet we can find something affordable there…maybe an ornament? My words and my photos can’t even begin to describe how amazing this section of the store was…you could really feel the Christmas spirit!

I know – I don’t have many photos from the store itself…if it’s any consolation, I was shopping. My sweet sister gave me very specific instructions via Facebook to bring her something back from our trip (what, photos aren’t good enough?), so I was on the hunt. I hope she likes what I got her. If not, she’ll have to get over it.

After doing a bit of shopping, I think we had lunch and dropped off our stuff before going to the London Dungeons. I don’t have any photos from that experience and I’m not exactly sure I would recommend it (mix of history, theatrics and mini theme park), but it passed the time.

Later that evening, after packing all our things, I decided to play around with my camera. My laptop may have been screwed up but that wasn’t going to stop me from shooting. And with that said, I think that’s about it for our trip. I took a lot more photos and I may sprinkle them in from time to time, but I hope you enjoyed the last month and a half of photos. I know I did. Now I just have to turn these photos into an album. Have a great Wednesday!
