I was in London this past weekend, my first time in the UK (I'm from Portugal, by the way). I was in Frankfurt last October and really liked it. I was hopping to like London too. That turned out to be an understatment.
I became officialy in love with London. I absolutly adored the city. Each corner I turned I was in awe with the architecture and the 'feel' the city transmites. Every tube ride became the fix to an addiction. Some pretty cool stations too! My favourite was probably the Westminster one.
Being in the big cosmopolitan city it is, turning a corner and suddently being in a Charles Dickens tale - priceless.
The small restaurants in Soho, the odd vinyl store, the overwhelming King's Cross train station, the bunker-likeness of some tube stations, Denmark Street.... and the snow! We don't have snow here, so it was definitly a highlight for me. I was feeling like a child, filming with my phone and laughing my butt off.
Still, so much left to do. I wish to return when I can. On my to-do list:
- See the Big Ben clock tower without the construction stuff warped around it;
- Hyde Park (get inside it);
- Buckingham Palace;
- London Tower;
- Take a Jack The Ripper tour;
- Go to a Pub;
- Have a fry up;
- See at least one ghost
- Meet wish Ash from Oil City for a beer;
- Alot more subway!
All in all loved London and need to experience more of it. Cheers
