Live from London! 28/05/2011
Since the last time we spoke I think I have covered just about every major area and even a few lesser known spots of London, and may I just say that it has been an absolute ball! I have barely been home, but to sleep of course because I’m tryna make the most of London before I must depart.
London is way more than what I was expecting in a great way of course. Everything from the street fashion to amazing variety of cultures and everything that comes along with being a melting pot of city.
Since I know just about everyone knows the major monuments of London, I thought I would only upload a few of those pics. Then my next post will be on the London culture and street fashion that I am adoring.
This for those who may not know is the infamous London Bridge. I love how I went from just seeing it my snow globe for years to finally being able to capture the real thing.
This is the London Bridge Shopping Centre. I love the high arches and the beautiful architectural designs. And is it just me or do you notice the style of the people in the photos. I wish more men back home dressed like that.
Now you know I had to go to the Shakespeare Globe Theater! How can I aspire to be writer without going?!
Sorry about my mates being caught in the pic. There was almost nowhere to stand. Because like us, all of the other tourist were all tryna get a shot. Hahaha
The Tate Modern. I love going to museums and this was a definite must see. By the way, that street performer was amazing!
I actually really wanted to take this shot towards St. Paul’s Cathedral as well because this is in almost every movie I watch that takes place in London.
On my way to get a ride on the London Eye. 🙂
The amazing and moving Big Ben and the House of Parliament
The Buckingham Palace. Sorry, no sight of Kate or William or even the Queen anywhere. hehehe
The National Gallery! Which I was unfortunately not allowed to take photos of inside.
The British Museum. Now I was able to take photos of the inside. I’m not exactly sure if you want to see it, so if anyone does, just leave a comment and I will upload them in the next post.
As for the next post. I will be uploading some of the London original street fashion as well as some of the amazing food that I have gotten a chance to eat and experience.
It’s amazing, so amazing… 15/05/2011
So I thought I would just post a few pics that I have taken on my phone since I have been in London. Unfortunately, I have yet to find an adapter that works for my laptop or my phone. This post was made possible by my awesome flatmate Ahmet for letting me use his iPhone charger. Still searching for an adapter so I can bring you a better post. But till then,
This was my inspiring view from the airport
This was a local pub outside of my friends window. Nothing says London like a classic pub. Cheers! 😉
This is the infamous Regent Street in Central London. A shopaholic’s dream( Mmmm, having a moment) 😀
As you know I am currently in London and just like forgetful me, I have forgotten my adapter. There was supposed to be one waiting for me at my Aunts flat, but one of the guests seems to have misplaced it. Anyhow, I am currently at a public library just checking in to give you an update. As soon as I get an adapter, I will post pics of my daily missions thus far.
Hopefully I will be seeing you again soon,
London Calling 07/05/2011
That’s right! I bought a ticket to London to stay with some of my lovely family. Traveling to Europe especially London has been a dream of mine. So it was a must on my Missions List. I told myself no matter what I had to do, or how much more hours I had to work, and even if I didn’t have a dime to spend while there that I was going to London before heading back to classes. Now my dream will take effect 10th of May!
And once again, you are more than welcome for this trip!
