London Experiences

(31st May - 6th June 05)


- Dragging 2 huuuge suitcases and switching 3 underground lines!!! Thanks to my friend maams and his roommate , i managed it :)

- Ordering a fancy coffee for 2 Pounds which came in a cup exactly 1.5 inches in height and 1 inch in diameter, when the guy on the next table got a bigger cup for 1 pound...

-Getting directions from a Red Coat.. :D

- Hopping on and off the local buses just to check out arbitrary streets which caught my attention.... I just loved these buses which had all the stops listed out...... :) ...

- Loved the tubes too... Checking out the office-going crowd in their formal attire is a treat to any fashion lover....

- Donning a skirt in a restroom adjacent to the underground like just another Londoner woman changing from work clothes to party wear....

-Eating a hot waffle with chocolate and whipped cream on Oxford street...

-Window shopping on Oxford Street..

-Watching the artists create awesome portraits on Leciester Square...

- Trying not to stare at the couple making out right across me in the tube like it was what I did everyday!!!

- Touring alone... Something a lot of my friends said they would never do!!!


Things I want to do or do differently...

- Not waste 11 pounds in seeing the royal gallery or mews...
(money was dear !!! )

- The London Eye wasn't a great thing either...

- I missed clubbing and dining in London because I was touring alone.... Heard Cafe De' Paris is happening..

- Though I enjoyed staying with a friend, next time I do want to be in a hostel... where I can meet different people... I wish I had gone to some pubs , just to strike up some conversation with the people there...

- All Women attn : don't step into London without jazzy bangles, long earrings, and fancy skirts !!

- Must Shop !!!!!!!

- Do opera's happen in London? Want to see one!

More pics coming here!!!

Did you get a snap clicked with a red coat? As for the couple making out, I believe we were able to catch that view even in CT :p
I do admire your spirit in touring alone - don't think I can ever do it.

hey.. thanks for ur blog .. it def. gave me a starting point for my 2 day visit.. couldnt cover much in 2 days though... yes.. london is happ on sat. night esp. where i stayed near piccadiuly circus and god.. london women dress really hot for sat. night.. I did go to a pub, but was there sitting alone like a loser for quite a while and i walked out.. :) .. But hopping on and off the Underground and buses to see diff places were quite intersting.. will blog about it all.. went to Abbey Road (famous beetles album) and Baker Street(Sherlock Holmes) and also Lord's Cricket ground apart from other major landmarks.. Wasted 18 pounds in Open top bus, cos I didnt use it much.
