When I was 7 years old I read the first sentence of the first Harry Potter book and ever since then, I've wanted to go to England.
This October I finally went!
This is pretty much how I felt..
We were staying in an apartment in Woolwich and we had absolutely no idea how far from the city center it actually was. The first day (Tuesday the 13th) we spent most of the day simply getting to our apartment, first with a bus, then we had to take 3 trains which were followed by an extremely long walk (some of it uphill) because our gps screwed up (as it turned out we lived less than 10min from the DLR station). And we were hauling suitcases with us all this time.
Which brings me to my first observation: British people are so friendly!
Every single person helped us whenever we got lost or weren't sure which train to take.
We were pretty much exhausted after that so we got some Domino's (our first time!) and went to bed.
It was my first time on a plane and I was so happy to be sitting next to the window!!
Taking a selfie with a selfie stick...because we can.
I saw this on the shelf in our apartment and nearly moved in permanently!
The second day was a bit more exciting!
We walked (yes, walked) from the Tower Bridge to Buckingham palace!
And here come the photos from that day.
Posing and flipping our hair :D
The next day was spent on Oxford street and on Friday we went to the 99club for Comedy night!
I honestly laughed so hard I nearly pulled a muscle.
On our last day we wanted to go to the Sky Garden but we didn't know we needed a ticket so we went to Portobello Market, which was incredible. There were so many people there and everyone was incredibly nice!
After that we went to the Victoria and Albert museum which was closed (we had some bad luck that day) so we took a walk to Hyde park instead, but it was so windy that we didn't stay long.
On our way back to the underground station we walked past Harrods again and it looked so pretty with all the lights!
We stopped for a quick coffee and then went back to our apartment and packed.
Our taxi driver had a very thick accent and I could barely understand a word he said and I'm so glad there was no one on the road that night, because he missed our exit on the motorway and we could luckily just reverse and somehow we got to the airport on time.
As far as transportation goes it was an incredibly stressful trip, but overall I had an amazing time and I can't wait to go back, but next time we'll know that 5 days aren't nearly enough to see London!!
