    London Day 3

    September 13, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

    We leave this morning headed to Paris. Another big day yesterday with our first stop the Natural History Museum then a short walk to Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fountain for a little rest and then back on the underground to to please a Harry Potter fan by lining up for an hour to take a photo at platform 9 and 3/4! I didn’t get all the fuss but there were adult and children alike standing in line. Then to London Bridge, the Shard and Tower of London. We all loved exploring the Tower of London! We took a Thames river cruise back to London’s South bank near were we are staying and had a lovely tapas meal. My good mate Prue told me 3 years ago on our first trip that traveling is different from holidays! We were all tired and fell asleep as soon as our heads hit the pillow.Read more

    London Day 2

    September 12, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    It’s our first time in London so we are checking out all of the iconic places and one or two less so. Today we started at Buckingham Palace and used the London Underground with our first experience of the Tube station and were impressed and with the buses. We got off at St James Park and that was a lovely walk to the palace. Watching the changing of the guard was too “touristy” for my liking and we moved onto Westminster Abbey. We were debating about which was more impressive Notre Dame in Paris or Westminster and I’ll reserve my judgment till we arrive in Paris again soon but I’d say Westminster. Then we did some walking past Churchill War Rooms and headed down Fleet Street had lunch at a pub and then to St Paul’s cathedral- that’s impressive also. Lots of wonderful buildings mixed in with some modern. We headed home on the underground Bank station for the big event watching the Lion King on London’s West End. That was a fantastic show and experience.Read more

    London

    September 11, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☁️ 20 °C

    We departed Singapore 11.30pm Monday night and arrived in London Tuesday morning at 6am 13+ hour flight. Checked in at 8am and we were on our way to beat the jet lag by staying up and active as much as possible. First stop Trafalgar Square then walking down Whitehall to see iconic buildings like the cabinet offices the premises of the PM and the iconic Westminster palace. Westminster Abbey was closed but we’ll check it out tomorrow. Jewel tower is an amazing building a thousand years old. Back to our room to freshen up at 3.30pm and despite my warnings Kaiyen falls asleep... I go out for a walk to explore some funky street food and bars for later this evening past the London Eye on London’s Southbank. Then back out again to have a lovely meal and crash. Tomorrow night we’re looking forward to seeing the Lion King on London’s West End.Read more
