|Monday 27th June - Friday 1st July 2005 - London|
Even though it has been a couple weeks and even months, or maybe just because it is now time to put the maybe last report in writing. Monday morning after a relatively short flight from Montreal I happily arrived in London. I was kind of drunken-dizzy getting of that plane - maybe because of the thin air aboard... Well, I was happy to be picked up by Kerstin and Maria, because that way I didn’t have to worry about getting into town…
Right after arriving at the hotel I took a short 8 hour nap to get over the jetlag and everything else. Meanwhile Kerstin and Maria went to town to find out who could spend the most money in the least time. London is an amazing city and I wonder why I haven’t been there before. Too close I say - or, too expensive. Here are some pics…|
Buckingham Palace - Home of the Queen
Kerstin inside the London Eye
About 25 people fit in each of these things.
British Airways created the London Eye and that's why staff says - enjoy your flight - which by the way is about 30 minutes long.
Parliament and Big Ben
St Pauls Cathedral
Westminster Abbey - a graveyard
Tower of London
Are those real - or not? Madame Tussaud's almost looks like a Hollywood party and it's usually quite crowded. That's why it took me a moment to figure out which ones of the figures are not real, becuase of all the posing tourists.
The Beatles were there too - and the royal family...
Who is the guy in the middle?
To take this picture we had to climb more than 500 steps to the top of St Pauls.
Changing of the Guards
There is so much to see in London, that it is impossible to see everything, like this little detail.
Marmeladeshopping at Harrods
During a visit in London a traditional English Tea Time cannot be missed out on. So we dressed up and had a cup of tea at the Walldorf and a glass of champagne and a snak - for about 87 pounds. ;-) It felt like an afternoon in a place of the high society.
