Touristy things!

   As much as I dislike traveling on the beaten path there are certain things you HAVE to do when you go to a city. Like NYC, you don't have to take the ferry and climb the Statue of Liberty, but you at least have to go look at it from far away.

  Or on the Staten Island Ferry since it's free anyways.

The Ultimate Uncluttered Tube Map 
   So this is what London consisted of for me today; Big Ben, Tower Bridge, Buckingham Palace etc. I also did A LOT of walking around, because the tube is expensive and I'm cheap. It was chilly, but nothing unbearable if you were dressed properly. I also asked a lot of people to take pictures of me, and every time had a mini heart attack wondering if they were going to run off with my camera - the disadvantages of traveling alone.

   It was worth it though, some of these places felt unreal, like Big Ben is not as tall as I thought it would be, but the fact that it is a physical thing in the world did blow my mind a little, after growing up seeing it on tv, movies and cartoons for so many years.




  1. I know that feeling. When I was in London over a year ago, the first sight I saw was the London Eye. It was nothing really spectacular, but as the emotional bunch I am, I had tears in my eyes because I was so happy to be there and see it in real life. Same happened with the towr bridge, and big ben. I hope you enjoy your trip, London is lovely :D

    1. Thank you very much! I am enjoying in massively!
