    Tower of London

    September 20 in the United Kingdom

    Tower of London... built in the 11th century by Wlilliam “The Conqueror” holds remarkable history! And today, holds the jewels to “The Crown” including the biggest diamond ever found... The Cullinan! Cullinan I (largest clear cut diamond in the world! 😱) is on the Sovereign’s scepter (530.4 carats) and Cullinan II is mounted on the Imperial State Crown (317.4 carats).

    Oh! Amongst many other interesting facts...Two queens 👸🏻 were beheaded here! 😬Read more

    LONDON, ENGLAND

    June 15 in the United Kingdom

    The home of Austin Powers. And a few other historically significant events. 5 nights is nowhere near enough to touch upon ALL the amazing wow that London has to offer. And unfortunately the first few days we all had a bit of mild sore throats which made us less-than-enthusiastic tourists. But we are all good now! We've ticked a lot of boxes: Buckingham Palace, Big Ben (which is sadly covered up for restoration), Westminster, Downing Street, Picadilly Circus, British Museum, Coventry Gardens.... We have been enjoying cups of tea, street performers, souvenir browsing, and general people watching. Buz caught up with his old mate, Johann, who lives in London now. The city is absolutely incredible.

    MONDAY:
    Tomorrow we take the chunnel to Paris, so we have worn out the boys with sightseeing galore- starting off with Tower of London- except the lines were so incredibly long we decided to walk around the perimeter instead. The Crown Jewels are overrated anyway! Crossed over the Tower Bridge and got vertigo watching people sitting on the edge to pose for photos. We walked along the Thames to Blackfriars Bridge, stopping in at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre & also for a bit of 'culture' at the Tate Modern, which included (among its prized displays): a blank white canvas, egg carton structure with strings attached, a painting of a canvas entirely in black, another of 'soil mounted on canvas,' a gallery of large canvases with a single square painted on each with a comment that this particular artist will only paint 'on themes of the human condition: terror, ecstasy, doom, etc'. I wondered what emotion squares represented. And also thought perhaps I ought to submit a few works! It’s easy to criticise, but truly it seemed to be a case of the emperors new clothes. So we had fun renaming each work: spilled coffee, bad vindaloo meal, etc.

    Our English accents are getting pretty good!

    The Tower of London

    April 1, 2017 in the United Kingdom

    This was one of my favourite places to visit in London. I had not realised it was so big and I ended up spending several hours exploring this landmark. I joined a talk by one of the Yeoman Wardens. It was an hour of humerous theatrics mixed with interesting facts about traitors, murderers and beheadings performed in the Tower.

    I then went to see the Crown Jewels and was happy it was spring so the large queuing area wasn't required. The jewels were absolutely stunning and I found it hard to believe they were real as the security seemed low key (no bag scanners like most of the other tourist attractions). No photos were allowed unfortunately.Read more

    London day 8 Mon 30 April 2018

    April 30 in the United Kingdom

    Wet and cold day. Wore thermals under clothes, down jacket and gortex rain jacket. Tower of London after breakfast. Queued to get to in, Interesting mint and historical coin making display in the Royal Mint (1279-1812). Beefeater historical talk in the chapel as it was too wet for tours. Queued in the rain again to see the Royal Jewels. Next visited the White Tower (original home of the Crown Jewels, now housing historical armour displays. Then St Martins Tower with old royal crowns from which the jewels had been removed. After the Tower walked to Tower Bridge for the glass footway experience, followed by the steam driven Victorian engines for lifting the road to allow shipping through. Walked to the Shard stopping for lattes on the way, and took the lift to the 68th floor and walked to 69th floor where Yvonne had a cocktail, walked up to open 72nd floor and took more photos. Steak at Southwark Hotel.Read more

    Tower of London

    January 2, 2017 in the United Kingdom

    Nach einem gemütlichen Frühstück machen wir uns via Metro/Tube auf den Weg zu unserem ersten Londoner Ziel, dem Tower. Mit dem Wetter scheinen wir heute Glück zu haben, denn schon jetzt scheint uns die Sonne ins Gesicht.
    Nach kurzer Wartezeit haben wir unsere Tickets eingetauscht und stürzen uns ins Getümmel. Wir drehen eine Runde auf der Burgmauer und schauen uns anschließend noch die Kronjuwelen an, bevor es dann wieder weitergeht.Read more
