Day 2 in London

So day 2 we did a lot of walking!! It was a day with no stop. I saw so many things that I will write up a list and say something short about every place.
 
Hyde Park: A very beautiful park with a lot of trees and open spaces. Wich we had more time to walk around. The ideal would be to go and have a picnic there.
 
Buckingham Palace: I saw the palace a couple of years ago but it still made me want to take a lot of pictures! It's a beautiful building, and you can stand there for a long time and just look at the details.
 
London Bridge: It's a beautiful bridge! But the most fun was to do a jump picture on it.
 
Tower of London: I have seen documentrys about the tower and it was so much fun just telling my friends all the stories! The high light was the jewles and going into the white tower. Cant believe that so many people was tortured and killed here. Well I understand why people thought it was scary to look at! 
 
Millenium bridge: The bridge that was in the Harry Potter movie. Can recomend. It's a beautiful bridge made of glas for about 50%. 
 
Shakspears Globe: Shakspears theater where Queen Elizabeth I went to see his plays. Didnt walk inside so i would recommend doing it. Must be so beautiful. And the building looked like a globe!
 
Big Ben and the parlament: It was awesome to see Big Ben again! Last time for me it was in 2001. The funny thing is I decided to copy the photo I took at 2001. Was standing in the same place with the same pose. It was awesome. 
 
The Dungens: Think about a hunted house that lasts for about 2 hours!!! Thats what the dungons is. Very good actors that told stories about murder and historical events in London history. I recommend it!! I was really scared a couple of times. And the assistent of Sweeny Todd thought I had beautiful hair that could be made into a wig after he killed me.
 
Aquarium: The Aquarium was really beautiful. You could see sharks, turtuls and a lot more! 
 
London Eye: London Eye was the main event fir this day! It took us a while to get in because of the line but it was worth it. The vyu was amazing and you could see all of London!! 
 
After this long day we sat down at a real nice british pub. Was a really good way to end the day! :)

Day 1 - National gallery, High tea and Wicked

So my first day in London has been awesome!! 
 
The first thing I wanted to do was to go into the National Gallery in London. There all my favorit artists has a their works from Van Gogh, Turner, Monet and Leonardo da vinci. 
When I walked up from the tub at Charing cross I felt like a little school girl. The buildings was so grand and beautiful!! Like everywhere you looked was a new monument!! I was in heaven! The first thing I did was to buy a croissant and just sitt on the steps to the gallery and enjoj the sun, listening to musicians and look at street artist. But also just take in that I was here. 
 
Just a warning before anyone goes into the national galley! Dont bring any large bags!I had to check mine in at the station before I was allowed in.
 
I was amazed when I walked into the gallery! It was so beautiful the rooms and I even saw art that I did study at school. It was an amazing feeling to finally see them in person. I think people would have described me like a fan seeing their favorit musician. 
The one I looked most forward to was the work of Van Gogh and his sunflowers. It was more beautiful than in the pictures.
 
After the Gallery I went to meet up my best friend and went straight to our hostel. It was ok. Not expencive, sleephalls and not that freash. Looks like people can stay there for months when they are in London.
 
Then from one museum to another we went straight to the British museum. Another breathtaking building! Was like I was in Rom!
At the musem we had high tea or Afternon tea. 
Well I can say this I have had better Afternon tea. The deserts I took one small bite of and then I didnt want them. And the sandwiches was a little dry and didnt look the same. The cream for the scones was like butter. The one thing that was good was the wine and the tea. So I wont go back there. It was an experience but no thank you. 
 
In the evening I was finally going to see the musical Wicked. But before that me and my friende ran across most of central london just to find a place that sold powerbanks, and ofcours it was in rush hour! I cant compare that to Stockholm. Stockholms rush hour is nothing compared to London!!! 
 
When we finally got there and took our seets it was a beautiful theather! And the first thing you see on the stage is a big dragon!!!
The musical was amazing and I sang alonhin every song. Couldnt help it! The actors was so good abd their singing was! I'm also happy because the ending was much better than I thought!!
 
This is what happend the first day! A lot to do and no battery in the phone. Will try to write a couple of times today. But if not you know why.
