Small update before my never ending travel begins
Jan 16, 2013
. We thanked her for the cups of tea and headed on our way. I wanted to try a little thrifting in London before I started all my travels so we went east to east London looking for east London thrift store. Supposedly this is the best thrift store in London (that what my guide book says at least). At first we were lost and then we asked for directions and then we got more lost. When we finally found the place I was unimpressed with everything. The place was small, messy and smelled like moth balls. We looked around for a bit but everything was expensive. I finally found a denim vest that I like and I was surprised when It said it was only 50 pence. But when I went up to buy it the guy told me that it was actually 5 pounds. I bought it anyway cause I like it so much.
Tomorrow starts my next two weeks of traveling across Europe and I can't wait!
I've been trying to channel my father this past week to try and plan my upcoming travels. It didn't work so well and I mostly ended up downloading cool apps on the places I'm going rather than making itineraries. Because I wasn't really completing anything from that I decided to take a break and join Jalan and her friend from home to the Twining's tea museum. I don't know if you would actually call it a museum, it's more like the first ever Twining's tea shop and they have one wall with historical stuff on it. Even though it wasn't much it was still pretty awesome. First, I LOVE tea. I knew there was something that drew me to London it's the ridiculous amounts of tea these people drink. Second, they had walls and walls of just tea. Bagged tea, loose tea, aged tea! Thirdly, we all got to sit down and try tea for free. We all sat down at the counter and this women, who was full of tea knowledge, told us about the teas we were trying. I think her job is awesome, she stands around all day drinking and talking about tea
