    British musum and Matilda japanese

    August 16, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    今日は大英博物館とマチルダのミュージカルを見に行きました。大英博物館では、私はノートを書きました。一つ目は、飾りが付いている、棺の事です。これは、亡くなっちゃった11-12歳の男の子の棺てかいてあって、二目は青いガラスのビンの事です。このビンは1857年に作った香水のビンでした。最後は、ロゼッタ石の事です。ロゼッタ石は3つの言葉で字が書いていました。ギリシャ語、ヒエログリフ、でもチック。私はいっぱい習って嬉しいです。昼飯はサーモン丼でした。美味しかったですーーーーーーー!
    その後は、マチルダミュージカルを見に行きました。私はあまり好きじゃないと思いましたが、本当は好きでした。みんなが好きでした。マチルダはリリアンハーデイ、女の怖い校長せんせいは👩‍🏫男の人が役をしていました。私はビックリしました!私が一番好きなキャラクターはマチルダの友達🤝ブルースでした。どうしてかというと、ブルースは面白買ったからです。
    お土産はナニーとグランダがくれたお金でマチルダのお洋服を買いました。ありがとう!!このミュージカルは本当の本と違かったです!!またみたいです!

    London by bike

    July 6, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    Our first day in London, and considering I woke first at 1.30am and thought it was 4am or later I haven't done too badly. I did get more sleep but it was all over the place.... Still, didn't feel too bad in the morning so munched thru breakfast when it arrived while trying again to get online Wimbeldon tickets with no luck so headed out from our apartment in Earls Court and caught the tube to Waterloo to join the half day bike tour of London that we had booked.
    The sun was shining brightly as we kitted up with our pushies and headed off. It was great to see that my bike had one of those big wide seats - something you can actually plant your butt on.
    A 30C day in London, couldn't believe our luck! Wonderful to be out and about.
    As usual it seems mandatory that people that can't rides bikes feel the need to learn whilst in another country by booking on a bike tour. This equates to entertainment and disaster. Interesting combination in traffic!
    I have to say cycling thru London in the traffic was certainly more disconcerting than cycling thru Paris or Florence. Felt as though there were moments of russian roulette and also saw two accidents.
    Whilst cycling around we saw the Houses of Parliamemt, Big Ben, MI5, MI6, Samual Johnsons house, Covent Garden (where I found time for a gelati), Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, St Paul's Cathedral, Trafalgar Square and London Eye.
    We made it back to base late but unscathed and headed off on foot to walk thru Borough Market which is a very nice food market with lots of cheese, fresh meats (crocodile, kangaroo, wild boar, camel, zebra), fresh pasta, breads, cakes, fruit and veg, wines and more). Something for Vic Market to have a look, as its more like South Melbourne market.
    From here we walked over London Bridge to the Monument to the Great Fire of London. Phil decided to climb it when we got there, 311 steps each way and then we walked down along the Thames for a way towards Tower Bridge before walking back, finding a little pub for 'refreshments' near the river before battling the peak hour tube ride home.
    The day was finished off with dinner at a nice little Thai restaurant and a chat with local people on the table next to us.
    Walking home and almost at our apartment one of the Wimbeldon courtesy vehicles stopped and a player with a huge bag of racquets and companion walked into our apartment building right before us. Although the face looked familiar I can't think of his name.
    The night before another vehicle had also dropped a player further up the street so its nice to know they all want to stay near us!

    Phil- I woke at 3.30 am ready for a big day. First time I have had jet lag and now understand how people can be confused. The bike ride could have been a disaster and riders could have been hurt. Weaving between cars and going too fast, the guide had no idea how to run a good tour. The traffic is bad. The population has grown but the streets have not. This is what Melbourne will be like in 10 years. Proved my fitness level climbing to the top of the Monument. Mind you, I was stuffed when I got home.

    So about that accomodation in London...

    September 27, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Lovely breakfast and goodbyes to Chris and Alma (sad face). Then train to London. Arrived 3ish and figured out the tube to get to our Airbnb and pick up the key at 4pm...

    Slight problem.

    Massive water leak that morning and apartment uninhabitable. But our host was nice enough to let us stay in another place. Unfortunately the other place was next to a train line, noisy, small and generally not what we were after (or paid for).

    So it was on to airbnb to find somewhere else. We managed to find what looked like a great place, then did some sorting out with airbnb to get most of a refund (we decided to spend one night in the train side place). Airbnb was quite helpful in this regard (although having a phone with credit was also useful)!

    Wandered around Earls Court that evening to look for some dinner and finally settled on Korean. The kimchi pancake was delicious! The place also had karaoke which we briefly considered doing. Instead we decided to eat Snickers ice creams and watch Power Rangers. One of those things was great.

    Lac de montriond

    August 7, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Time to kayak! We went kayaking at Lac de Montriond.
    Lac de Montriond is a beautiful lake ( when the weather is nice). It was a sunny day, and Mammy took very nice photos. Me and Mammy went on one kayak, Nanny and grandad went on one and maya and daddy went on one. I kept splashing Mammy ( by mistake ) and maya splashed daddy ( on purpose ). We kayaked for about 25 minutes. I was hungry we kayaked back to the shore. There was a restaurant close by so we ate our lunch. I had a ham and salami plate. It was a kids meal so they gave us 🍦 ice cream. I got Chocolat ice cream. I asked for the bill in French. Can I have the bill please is 'L'addition sil vou plait' .Read more

    Aegina to London

    September 8, 2015 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    I'm writing this a little late so hope I do t miss anything. We had a full day of travel, leaving Perdika early and dropping off our car in Aegina. A quick coffee and croissant before getting on the hydrofoiling fast ferry was a little much needed sustenance get us through the long hot day ahead of us. We stopped off in Syntagma on our way through Athens between Pireaus and the airport and had yoghurt with honey and fruit, with a very rich, thick, sweet and strong iced coffee milkshake to accompany it. The railway delivered us to he airport in good time and we dropped of our bags and sat around waiting for our Ryan Air flight to London.
    The flight took about 4 hours but was very pretty over Italy, France and the English Channel. A long train ride followed by a few tube rides through the London underground spat us out at Earl's Court Station. We wandered down the road, fumbled with some keys to get into our flat, wandered upstairs and collapsed from such a long and exhausting day in our lovely little apartment.

    Oh and forgot to mention the Chinese we got quickly for dinner.. it was just excellent! Highlight being blackpepper and honey duck, but black been beef and sautéed prawns were also nice.. not to mention the excellent dumplings!

    London Day 1

    September 9, 2015 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Our first day in London! What a cool city this is. I was expecting to hate the built up metropolis and for it to be overcrowded, noisy, smelly and generally pretty unpleasant. Boy was a wrong. The countryside coming in from the airport was beautiful: canals with boats, forests, rolling grassy hillsides and pretty buildings.
    Our first day here was busy and interesting. We began with finding a supposedly very good Lebanese cafe down the road in Earl's Court. It was as good as I we had heard: fantastic little Lebanese coffee shots, tapas-like platters for the olds, and smoked salmon, mushroom scrambled eggs with fresh made pita bread for me. All accompanied with some sweet croissants.
    The first stop on our day's itinerary was getting deep downtown on various tubes and taking the light railway to see the Cutty Sark. The beautifully restored vessel was just as awe inspiring as I had heard, and we all thoroughly enjoyed looking around her. The size and quality of everything from hull to rigging was just excellent, with plenty of accompanying information.
    Up the road from Cutty Sark was the national maritime museum. We went in looking for information on longitude (it being situated in Greenwich, 0 degrees longitude) and information on Captain Cook. Alas we found neither.. so just took advantage of the cafe for a quick refreshing drink before carrying on down the the Thames waterfront. From the Greenwich ferry berth we caught a fast cat down the river, past tall ship Tenacious, HMS Belfast, various Thames barges and the city in general. We got off the ferry near Borough Market (see tomorrow) and went to the tube station.
    Zoom zoom zoom.
    Up we popped in Picadilly Circus and Regent street. We had afternoon tea of salads, cakes and tea at the Hotel Royale Cafe which was.. interesting and not amazing but an enjoyable borgouis experience.
    From the Royal we went to Hamleys. . The most amazing toy shop.. 6 floors of childhood delights from Lego to soft toys were seemingly never ending. Just had a god look around before leaving as it was CHAOTIC. But very cool.

    I'm writing this a little late so admittedly may be missing details or not remembering as much as I'd like. . IL try to keep more on top of it in future.

    Dinner this day came in the form of another multicultural Earl's Court experience. This time a wonderful Japanese place with great dumplings, tempura soba noodle soup, sweet chilli beef and teppenyaki noodles. Very nice and very enjoyable. But definitely was time for bed back in our little apadtment.

    P.s. SQUIRRELS!! SO MANY WILD SQUIRRELS!!!

    West Cromwell Hotel

    October 27, 2016 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Gegen 15:30 Uhr sind wir im Hotel angekommen. Die Fahrt mit DLR und Tube dauerte natürlich recht lang, da wir einmal queer durch die Stadt mussten, aber wir waren definitiv eher da als ursprünglich mit Eurowings geplant war.

    Das Hotel lag ganz gut in der Nähe der Earl Court Station und die Tube Station West Kensington war auch nicht weit entfernt. Es gab dort einen Mc Donald´s, Costa, Starbucks, Sainsburys und einen großen Tesco. Also alles gut erreichbar!

    Das Hotel war, naja, sagen wir mal in die Jahre gekommen und nicht mehr so taufrisch, dafür günstig. Für die 6 Nächte haben wir 430 € bezahlt. Das ist für Londoner Verhältnisse günstig. Wir hätten sogar Frühstück inklusive haben, haben wir aber nie genutzt.

    Das Zimmer war sauber, nicht wirklich luxuriös, aber es gab immerhin einen Wasserkocher!
