My Trip to England: Part 1
Now it’s been a very long time since I updated you but it’s always better late than never. I’m never going to apologise for neglecting my blog because it is my blog after all. You lot are just nosy buggers that read what I write…I’m very appreciative of that, by the way 🙂
I’m going to show you my England pictures in parts because, well, there are a lot of them and I don’t really want to skip any radcore photos.
As the caption suggests, this is the sun rising in Hong Kong at about 7 in the morning. Since my Dad has a business lounge pass, we were able to go into a business lounge at Hong Kong airport and relax. It really made a huge difference to our flight experience especially when you’re flying from one side of the country to the other. There was plenty of free food and drink. Sadly on the way there I wasn’t all that hungry so I just took advantage of the ice cold water.
On our first trip out in England, Dad and I went to Greenwich (pronounced Gren-itch) to go see where the meridian line is. If you are unfamiliar with what the meridian line is, it’s the line that marks zero longitude. Interesting, eh?
It was everything I imagined it would be. Rather…liney.
Once we had had enough of Greenwich, we went to visit Lewisham which is where my Dad was actually born.
The next day, Dad and I went into London itself and decided it was about time we went on the bloody London Eye. We had always avoided going on it because of all of the tourists but considering that we are tourists ourselves and that it was also going into winter and there was hardly anybody there, now was our chance.
I absolutely LOVED it! We were so lucky to have had such a clear day considering that a couple of days after that, the fog rolled in.
Dad and I then went to eat lunch in …a park that I can’t remember the name of. Can I just take this moment to say that Warburtons does the best wheat-free bread I’ve ever tried! It’s like normal bread but it’s not. Crazy! Oh, I wish more companies would be like Warburtons.
Anyway, we went to eat our sandwiches in the park and I saw a…
IT WAZ ZO CUUTE I SQUEALED!!!
Then we went to Harrods. That was an experience!
I’ve always wanted to go here considering that it’s a place on the Monopoly board. I really liked it.
Even though it’s called Eros, according to the QI elves, it is not Eros. I am so confused. And here is me sitting alone underneath “Eros” eating my Hula Hoops. Ahhhh Hula Hoops. English food is the bestest.
Question(s): On a random note, did you have a fantastic Christmas and New Year?
If you could go anywhere in London, where would you go?
