At the moment we are travelling around Europe for a massive 2 month holiday. However, considering how many photos we've taken already I think it's safe to say it's a "work" trip.
This blog will be a little insight into our travels for the next two months, so keep your eyes peeled!
And what better way to start it off, than with the incredible London -
After a 24 hour journey we arrived in London at 5am - it's safe to say we were pretty worn out already. But only being here for two days, we decided to go hard or go home!
We dropped our things at the lovely Fiona's house, had a classic cup of tea (in a British mug of course) and set off on our own into the heart of the city.
Now the Brits think that they're having lovely weather at the moment, but being Aussies, their "lovely" spring day, was nothing short of our coldest day in winter - pure madness!
However we trooped on and had a look at the London eye, took many a photo of the Big Ben and Westminster Abbey, had lunch at Trafalgar Square, wandered through the Buckingham Palace gardens and said hello to the queen, saw Billy Elliot at the Victoria Palace theatre and finished the day off with some shopping. I had to purchase myself a coat, apparently my version of spring is very different to spring in the UK!
With us running on approximately 5 hours sleep over a 48 hour period, we managed to see all the typical touristy things in one day - if that's not productive travelling then I don't know what is!
P.s, we didn't look that glorious and made up all day - this is us at Heathrow at 5am
Day 2 -
Today we woke up after a well deserved 8 hour sleep and had a cup of tea on Fiona's balcony.
Our first stop for the day was Camden markets, unfortunately for the us the train wasn't running so we had to catch the bus, it wasn't all bad though...
When we arrived in Camden we could feel the hole burning in our pockets, an incredible mixture of vintage books, hand made crafts and culturally inspired knick knacks - it was hard trying to pace ourselves.
