London Day Nine – The one with the circus

London Day Nine – The one with the circus

After needing a mammoth sleep from our twelve hour bus tour, we nibbled on some food left over from our many Tesco trips as we were too tired to get breakfast. We decided to try and get back to South Kensington as we wanted to explore the museums that we only got to go pass on the double decker tour […]

London Day Eight – The one with a bath

London Day Eight – The one with a bath

We had our earliest start, needing to be fed, dressed and arrived at the tour meeting point by 8am! It was a bit of a struggle and had to skip breakfast to makeup the time, luckily for us the meeting was the same place as the Harry Potter tour a few days earlier. However, ten minutes after the pickup time, […]

London Day Seven – The one without a point

London Day Seven – The one without a point

Warning: This post goes into excruciating detail as it was written on a long bus ride. Sunday was a cursed day. It was raining and miserable, how I expected everyday to be in London during the winter. Our main goal was to find somewhere to wash our clothes because we were going on an all day tour the next day […]

London Day Six – The one with the art

London Day Six – The one with the art

Warning: This post goes into excruciating detail as it was written on a long bus ride. The weekend began unlike any other in that we decided to try the sandwich shop across the road from the hotel. While I was sent out on the hunt, T-Rex stayed in the warm embrace of the hotel room. Not knowing what exactly she […]

London Day Five – The one with the magic

London Day Five – The one with the magic

The morning we started slowly, knowing that we were visiting Warner Brothers Leavesden Studio in the afternoon. This was going to be one of the big highlights for T-Rex so we wanted to save our energy for the big event. We popped into CafĂ© Nero, which is a small chain of Cafes for some panini and coffee. We headed to […]

London Day Four – The one with the eye

London Day Four – The one with the eye

T-Rex’s bag had gone the way of her coat, that is it broke. Having only used it for a week, it was pretty frustrating to say the least. Luckily, if you remember from yesterday’s post, we had accidentally stumbled upon the location of a shoe repairers. So in the morning we headed off to the Arches. The man who we […]

London Day Three – The one with the lion

London Day Three – The one with the lion

The previous day, three out of ten of T-Rex’s jacket buttons had fallen off. This was frustrating as it was the first day wearing it after purchasing it at Oxford St. I had thrown out the receipt thinking that the chances of needing it in the next 11 days was pretty slim. So we decided to try to find a […]

London Day Two – The one with the wax

London Day Two – The one with the wax

T-Rex and I awoke hungry and disoriented. Having accidentally slipped into a micro-comma the night before, food was foremost on our mind. We got ready for the day, T-Rex is addicted to checking the weather, so we were well-informed that this was going to be our first true cold London day. I thought my Pea Coat and a T-Shirt would […]

London Day One

London Day One

After a solid 12 hours of sleep to combat our jet lag we headed off to Oxford Street, the shopping hub of London. We had realised early on that Australia in the summer was not compatible with the kind of clothes you need for a London winter. Getting the ‘tube so far has been fairly simple and I hope it […]

London First Night

London First Night

We arrived at Heathrow Airport, apparently Europe’s busiest airport but you could not tell. Firstly we had to go through immigration so we need to get rid of all the snacks we had hoarded in our bags on the plane. We got through immigration with a bit of British banter and I got the first stamp on my passport. Customs […]
