Travel Blogs from London
Our one-night stay at Rafayel on the Left Bank, where we visited the Houses of Parliament, British Museum, the London Eye and Planet Hollywood!
Ko sva po 13ih letih spet obiskala London, nisva bila tipična turista. Večino glavnih atrakcij sva obiskala že takrat, tokrat pa sva bolj ali manj pohajala po ulicah, si ogledovala stavbe, opazovala ljudi in čajčkala.
Že pred odhodom so naju klicali z Adrie in nama sporočili, da so najin prvotno planirani …
... did a rollicking gypsy encore with lots of tapping and banging of violins which was great fun. After the concert there was a rush downstairs to sit around with a glass of sherry and discussion of the concert. Caught a bus home and it is much easier than the tube as well as being able to see the city and being cheaper. Our oyster cards are working overtime.
Cheese and toast for lunch was great and Mum is able to have a nap this afternoon.
... Mums old house where Andy and Debbie met us. So good to be in a house again after small rooms in Italy and France. Girls are very excited to be here.
