    Ruby Violet

    April 23, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 14 °C

    We walked by this place yesterday on our way to our airbnb with our luggage. It was hot and sunny and the place was packed with a huge line outside. So today we decided to go see what the fuss was about. There wasn't a line up today.

    This ice cream was Amazing! Tammy and I both had coconut white chocolate and Matt had some Salted Caramel something or other. We all unanimously agreed that we will need to go back there again at some point this week.

    This concludes the day for us. Time to go put our aching feet up for the night!

    Honey House

    April 22, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    A few photos of our house we will be living out of for the next week. First 3 photos are of our bedroom. Picture 4 is one of the bathrooms and the last 2 photos are of the little yard. More pictures later. I'm just too tired. We have been up for at least 26 hours now.Read more

    Blue Moon... or not.

    April 22, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    Took a walk to have dinner at a Thai place called Blue Moon... but it wasn't even open. Oops. So after wandering our tired souls around the streets for plan B... We walked into a place that was super sketchy and we walked out faster than we walked in.... So we settled on Pizza Hut take out so we could chill at "home" and call it a night early.
    I also got my first look at one of the famous red double decker buses, and oddly... there's a random space helmet in a brick wall near our place. Weird!

    Blue Moon

    April 26, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌙 10 °C

    Remember that first night when we tried to eat at that Thai place? Well tonight it was open, so we went. We didn't have the best experience there. It's not a big place, and they only had a table for 2 available, but we were 3... and they were just like "sorry, can't help you". So we deliberated outaide for a bit and decided to go back in and order food to go since they do take out and delivery as well. Food took twice as long to be ready as they quoted us and when we got back to the house, Tammie's order was wrong and the food she got was... not particularly filling. Matt and I both though our food was OK at best. We won't be rushing to go back there anytime soon.Read more

    Old Red Lion Theatre Pub

    April 28, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 8 °C

    The pub is thought to be the oldest pub in London, having first been built in 1415. It's also a popular hang out spot for the cast of Game of Thrones… I kept an eye out just in case, but Winter did not come here today.

    Note the resident pub dog. Super friendly and super chill.

    Clink Hostel

    July 25, 2015 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌧 12 °C

    After my flight from Dublin I made my way to Clink Hostel where I was staying for the night. I took the Underground and it was packed, I had to stand for the whole hour. Once I finally got to King Cross Station I began walking from the station in the rain for about 10 minutes before I actually got there. At this time it was 2:00am and I was exhausted, emotional, cold and wet. I checked in went up stairs and had a shower, I didn't want to wake the other seven girls I was sharing a room with and I needed to re-pack my bag before the next tour which was due to start at 6:00am at the Royal National (I also had left one of my bags that I didn't need at the Royal National) so I caught a cab to the Royal National.Read more

    Day 79: The Long Road to London

    May 5, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    Very very long day of travel today. Unfortunately for us, entry into the UK with a dog is actually quite difficult - the Eurostar (passenger train from Paris to London) is basically the only train on the continent that doesn't allow dogs in the cabin, and you can't fly into the UK with a dog in the cabin either. He'd need to go in the cargo hold again, and we got rid of his cargo crate for that. We can't drive either, since there's only one car rental company that allows driving between France and the UK, and of course they charge an enormous premium (mainly because the side of the road switches). So the ferry was our only option!

    Up at 6:30am, where we packed hurriedly and left the house around 6:50. Grabbed a couple of croissants from the nearby bakery as we headed to the metro station. First train was a single stop on the RER to Gare du Lyon, then we changed onto a metro train to travel across the city to Saint-Lazare. Changed again for a longer country train northwards to the city of Rouen which took an hour, where we changed again for another country train to the city of Dieppe (about 40 minutes).

    Finally we arrived in Dieppe, where we shared a taxi from the train station to the port with an English man doing the same thing (though without a dog), he seemed to cross the Channel by boat fairly frequently. Checked in at the ferry wharf and waited around for nearly 2 hours before the ferry was ready to go. About 30 foot passengers were joining us, along with quite a few cars and trucks down below in the hold. Large boat too, almost the size of the Spirit of Tasmania!

    On board we dropped Schnitzel off, as unfortunately we weren't allowed to keep him with us. He seemed fairly settled with his blanket, some water and the carry-bag, so we headed upstairs. The boat set off fairly soon afterwards, and proceeded pretty smoothly across the channel. Not much to report as we were a long way from land and there was nothing to see! Cafeteria had reasonable food, we both had a very large serve of fish & chips for a by now late lunch.

    Eventually after about 3 hours of sailing we arrived in the port of Newhaven. Collected Schnitzel who was very happy, then worked our way through passport control and into the town where we boarded a train heading north. Only a few stops on this train before we changed again, this train was an hour's worth going all the way to Victoria Station in London.

    But we still weren't done with public transport! From Victoria Station, we changed to the underground and the Victoria line, going four stops to the north then changing to the Northern line at Euston Street for the last two stops to Angel. Finally we emerged into the late evening light, for the 10 minute walk along a pretty canal to our apartment.

    In the end we arrived within 5 minutes of when we'd told the owner to expect us! Though it wouldn't have mattered, as she lives downstairs anyway. This room is much nicer, it's a large studio with a separate washing room and bathroom, plus enough space for a couch, kitchen and small table. Everything smells and looks very new which is nice, and definitely a nice change!

    Spent a bit of time settling in then headed up the street to a convenience store where we grabbed some spaghetti and pesto. Neither of us felt super hungry so we just cooked that on the stove and headed to bed fairly early. It's been a very long day - one of the longest! All up about 13 hours of fairly constant travelling.
