Hello everyone! Sorry for my small amount of blogging, oh gosh, so many things have happened in my life in such a short amount of time.
As I mentioned before, I was going to travel to London, well guess what? I had the best time of my life there. Two weeks in London felt like two hours. Time really flies when you are having fun.
The journey began on august 21th; mom and I took an direct flight from Tromsø to London, Gatwick. Which took three hours; we took off 9pm and arrived around 12 at midnight.
When we arrived at London airport (Gatwick) we took a black cab, which cost 75pounds from the airport to my aunt’s place. We arrived to my aunt’s place almost 1am in the morning. She and her children were sleeping, when mom, I and the cab driver woke them up.
The next morning, august 22nd; we ate a delicious breakfast and my aunt’s children went to school. My aunt decided to give us some tour around some of London’s most popular shopping malls. After having our breakfast we dressed up and went to a kiosk to buy a one week oyster ticket. We didn’t buy that much that day, since it was raining a lot, it was also a bit cold. We pretty much had to hurry up. Instead of walking around in the rain, we went to KFC and had a huge meal there. Gosh we got so much for just 15pound food. One of the things I mostly found cheap in London was the food, unlike Norway, where food is one of the expensive things. Quiet sad! But weight and health wise, it is also good.
25. august- The boat party
Before travelling to london, my aunt invited me to a ‘’boat party’’ which was going to happen on august 25th, she told me to take a white dress with me. The party is based on everyone wearing white. So yeah, I bought a beautiful white dress in Norway. Instead of running around every single corner of London after a white dress. I went to the party with my aunt’s elder child, Aeyesha. We dressed up together and went there around 8pm. Again, it was raining on this day too. We were so pissed, but couldn’t do anything about it. We drove to’’Tower Millennium Pier ‘‘, A place near ‘’towerbridge/london bridge. Where we waited for the boat to arrive.
The party was such a blast. We ate countless amount of african food and danced the night away. The boat was driving right under the towerbridge. There was light all around the bridge. Gosh it was such a beautiful experience.
27. august- shopping at Stratford & good food
The next day, I decided to go to shopping. I saw a lot of amazing stores and bought lots of beautiful things.
This day was such a long and enjoyable day. We went on a long shopping trip around london. I saw alot of stores, I can’t even remember the name of all of the stores & malls I saw. The malls that I mostly shopped at was’’ Primark & forever 21’’. These are definately my all time favourites malls in London. After a long day, we came home and orderd some biffpizza , cheesesticks and watched some movies. The pizza was so delicious.
Sweet 27- Bithday
I was invited to a random birthday party. A beautiful, sexy and increadible smart girl turned 27. We celebrated her birthday at a club , with lots of drinks and danced the night away.
29. august-Greenwich park, oxford street, starbucks nando’s & London Bridge
This day was another amazing day In London. A friend of my aunt drove us way to Greenwich park. We walked around the park and as being a photo freak as I am, I probably took over 100 photos that day, just at the park. After walking for hours around the park, our stomach began to scream for food. We took a stop at ‘’nando’s’’ A really fancy restaurant, I must say. We ordered a really delicious group meal for about 27pounds. My favourite thing about nando’s is the refills of the drinks. You can drink as much as you want. After having something in our my hungry bellies, we went to ‘’oxford street’’. Gosh that street is full of stores, malls and most of all human beings. The street is so full that walking is almost like exercising. While at Oxford street and after the meal at nando’s, I started craving something sweet. I went to starbucks to buy some coffee, oh gosh starbucks was also full. People was standing/sitting in everywhere I turned my face to. I bought three large mocca for the three of us. Our final place to visit this day was London bridge. We took a DLR/train that took us straight to london bridge. We went on the bridge. Boats were floating under the bridge, and people were taking pictures of every corner of the bridge.It was so beautiful.! I bought a beautiful london mug there for 5pounds and a souvenirs for my sister’s husband.
September 1st –Buckingham palace, Big ben & London Eye
Around 1pm a family friend drove us to Buckimham palace. This place was so full of tourists and life. I saw also saw the big ben and London Eye. Words can’t decribe my experience. I wish I could see the queen though. Hehe
This is just a short version of my trip in London. Hope you enjoyed reading my experience. If you haven’t travel to London yet, then you should totally do so. The city is so full of life. My next travel destination will either be Rome or Paris
