    First Night London

    July 14, 2016 in the United Kingdom

    Arrived after a 13 hour flight. Spent 20 minutes circling Heathrow. No lost luggage and straight through. Where is customs? Immigration guy was asking where I am going and said I will see more of London than him. This is the view from my room.

    I have a smaller room here than Singapore but is adequate. Going to have a shower then dinner I hope.

    Kensington Park and gardens

    July 15, 2016 in the United Kingdom

    Woke at 2.20am. Not such a good idea. Anyway, meant an early morning start. Met Marie and Neville (I think) at breakfast and found out that they are joining everyone on Saturday. Nice couple from Oz. Breakfast over and laundry sorted walked down to Kensington Park. Ambled my way past shops shut til 9.00 or 9.30. Found a lovely church and Kensington Palace. Was able to walk into the gardens and take a closers look at the gardens. Lots of photos taken. Picked up a sim card ND had a Devon scone and Americans at Marks answer Spencers. Sales on everywhere it seems and I have managed to resist so far.

    Made it back to hotel in time to go on Windsor to u what an amazing place. The Queen was not in residence but again amazing afternoon. The opulence is mind boggling. The rooms are much smaller than I thought they might be too much cartoon watching.

    Tonight another amazing trip. This time ATASTE of London. Went to Inn at Court,a lawyers drinking place in the past, probably still is. Pub dinner of soup and bread followed. Was nice to meet some of my fellow travellers. I guess I will eventually remember names. By the by the meal was huge,so I had a taste of each course. Dessert was amazing, and English lemon type custard. Very good and very rich.

    After eating we the travelled along the Thames through London City to the boat . This was amazing as photo show. Pub is Butchers Hook .

    Vancouver

    August 9, 2016 in the United Kingdom

    Got up later today after waking at 1 decided to take sleeping tablets. Nice breakfast in hotel, a buttered bagel and jam. Organised the hop on and off bus which leaves outside the door, very handy. Vancouver is a very open city with lots of outside areas. I did the trip right round first then hopped off to get the free ferry to Grandville Island. I hope to do the island again when I come back. I had the bus to myself for the first trip around and had a ten minute stop for driver just in time ever for the gas work clock to steam the hour. Really special to see and perfect timing. We travelled through Stanley Park past lovely rose garden. The park was hit by a storm a few years back and lost 10,000 trees. You can now get harbour climpses where before the trees were thick..

    The route covered through Stanley Park,along English Bay Beach, Sunset Beach, over the Burr and Bridge. I got off just before this and took the ferry to Grandville Island, then to Yale town, saw Science World building in distance and Bc Place Stadium, Vancouver Library, China a town, Gastown,shopping area, Canada Place and back to hotel. About 2 hours without getting off. I managed to fill in from 8.45 to 3,30pm.
