Living on Queen’s Gate Terrace in Central Kensington is interesting. Thus far we have discovered that we live near: William Kate and George, David Beckham and Co, The Queen (occasionally), Adele, the two richest men in the UK, many foreign ambassadors along with many others. We are direct neighbors to the French Ambassador, hence the name of our “house,” Ambassador House.
During the tour Emily (my roommate) and I made a list on my iPhone notepad of places we wanted to go and things we wanted to do (that we saw on the tour). The list is HUGE. Some of the attractions will be free, others will not. It is going to be a fantastic semester here in London and I cannot wait to share with you all the adventures that happen to us while we are here in registered cabs.
