Welcome to the latest update, We can't believe we are over half way through the holiday :( Back to London & a cool showery 16 degrees on a summer's day! We are frozen after warm weather in Italy! Off to our new accommodation at Covent Gardens! Quick unpack & some jumpers on! Then off to meet Sophie ( A Kennedy Family Friend) & a wander …
Nice to have breakfast in our room. Coffee, toast and fruits. What more do you need.
The Barbican station is closed for the weekend. We later found out a lot of London's stations are undergo major repairs. Especailly on the weekend. May be it's part of the 2012 Olympic upgrade.

... ankle and it was finally about this time that it really started to hurt- so unfortunately I couldn't really dance that much and had to sit out a lot of the classics.

But seriously best day in London so far. Gotta love celebrating NZ away from home!
... day while I'm here. So I went back upstairs and watched some Netflix and ended up falling asleep. I got a really nice nap and woke up pretty hungry. The first couple of days my sleeping and eating schedule was so out of whack that I wasn't getting enough of either, but I'm feeling much better now that I am.

reasonable price (April), few minutes walk to the Barbican station. Room with small kitchen-dishes, pots and pans, cutlery, dishwasher, fridge. Save money by having breakfast in the room instead of paying 10 pounds for toast and tea. A Tesco nearby to get grocery. Room is very small. No AC. Room service is optional for 6 pounds a day. But once a week service is included if you stay more then a week.
