Show trip route
After visiting the castle we went and walked accross Tower Bridge. I personally was very impressed with the architecture and the size of this thing. So yeah I ended up taking lots of photo's of it on as many angles you can imagine. The blue suspension cables make it look quite cool :o) So continuing on from this we walked across it and around the corner where we stumbled on to the London Dungeons
From this we then went to get lunch at marks and spencers. Its like stocked full of fresh food and not to bad of pricing either compared to other places and the plentiful prepacked sandwitches - so yum. I had some some chicken salad wrap thing, and we ate it under the Royal Exchange which was a not to shabby building. Twas very old. After a bit of a rest we then headed off for st Pauls Cathedral. Once spotting it we were amazed at the size of it. Literally huge! I stood for quite a few moments just gazing up wondering how they built such a thing all those years back. If you werent impressed by the size of this place on the outside, the inside looked even bigger. Once getting in (after 10 pounds i may add) we went straight to the centre of the cathedral, and looked up. Now this is impressive!!! It was unbelieavably huge, decorated in awesome carvings and statues and paintings all over the domed roofs. Absolutely blown away from what i saw. I couldnt take any pictures unfortunatly out of 'respect' but this is a must see site to see if you ever come to london. Everz single wall and ceiling and dome had such detailed and intricate drawings in so manz colours. The scale of these were also impressive. After some time of just sitting down and gazing up at this we decided to climb the stairs up to the top of the cathedral. Just under 400 stairs to walk up - heh
HAHA! When i rocked up in one souvenier store to buy a material patch flag in which i'm collecting the guy recognised my accent and asked if i was from Australia... After i told him yes his face lit up and he blurted out "OH! YOU KNOW HOW TO THROW BOOMERANG!!!" hahaha was the funniest thing i've heard in a long time - i had to laugh. Then we had a little chat and i handed him a $10 australian note to look at and he was stoked that you can put our money through the wash as its pretty much plastic. :o) Funny bloke.
The kezboard im writing from in Paris where i actually am at the moment has its kezs all up the creek and i've had a gut full of correcting my mistakes. The Z and Y are in the wrong spots along with manz others. So just read on without pazing to much attention to the spelling as it will take to long if i did correct it. Haha - Thanks!
After visiting St Pauls we just sat down on the steps as we were a bit buggered from the climb and were watching these pidgeons climb all over this girl for her sandwitch... Thezre definatlz not afraid of people here like thez are back home. We then took a walk and ended up in Trafalgar Sq. Had another rest there with a coke and took up some of the hot sun that was shining down. Actuallz got quite hot for a while there
After taking a number of snapshots of these two huge buildings, we went for a walk and found ourself at picadillz circus. Was soooo busz here - well all of london is busz but this was like rundle mall of Adelaide (those from home will know what im talkin about), but london packed, not adelaide packed! At one end there were massive LCD screens for advertising (mainlz coke), but was impresed bz it. Just off the centre of Picadillz circus we stopped off and had some god damn awesome pizza at some random side shop. Oh i was starving! Expensive though. Well after a filled up tummz we were waz to buggered to do or see anzthing else and our feet were in quite a bit of pain, so we caught the underground home (1 hour and 4 trains later).
