    ... the walls and ceilings. In this room, the queen dines with the knights of the Garter, the highest order of chivalry. I'm not sure how a person gets into this order but Prince Charles is one. If you've seen a photo of him with the wide brimmed hat and big fluffy white feather, thats the knights uniform. When they dine together, which I think is once a year, they bring a 63m long mahogany table into this room. Each place is measured out and the crockery ...

    ... show had already started. This was disappointing as this was the one we had all been really looking forward to. Once Act 1 was finished they showed us to our seats. Aaron had only booked a ticked that day so he had a standing ticket. Not bad for 12.50 pounds I guess. He came in not longer after us looking quite hot and sweaty!

    So today we started our journey at 07.15 at Stockholm Arlanda airport. Thanks to the incredible generosity of Fabian's family friend Mark Boutros we were allowed to travel in business class as he gave us both upgrades so kudos to him!

It kinda feels like we're going against the backpacker lifestyle a bit as we were served champagne the minute ...

    ... of the old Roman walls in the heart of modern London. The displays of how London was affected by The Plague and The Great Fire of London are perhaps the highlights of the museum. We then said our farewells and Doug and I headed back to Ealing Broadway. We decided to stop in to Westfield at Shepherds Bush on the way and purchased theatre tickets for tomorrow. A little stop at the champaign bar before heading home seemed quite ...

    ... to the airport to grab some brekkie and get the train in to London. Once we got to London and checked into our hotel, we got the tube to the Tower of London (and walked across London Bridge). We were a bit rushed - by the time we we went in it was about 3:30 and it closed at 5:30. We all would have liked a bit more time there as it was so interesting. We did see the Crown Jewels which were amazing! I couldn't believe I was seeing so many jewels! The entrance ...
