A London Day to Remember

Today after sleeping in for a while longer than usual, after breakfast and brunch, we decided to take a trip to see Big Ben and the London Eye. Since these iconic sites are located fairly close to each other, we also took a short walk to see the royal palace that houses England’s royal family. There we took numerous photos and enjoyed each other’s company.

We took a few different tube lines and a bus; to be specific, a “double-decker” London bus to do some sight seeing, and enjoy the famous and well-known London bus.

After walking around in sprinkles of rain and being approached by friendly locals, we took pictures and hung out around the fountain that was in front of the palace and also took pictures of the statues that decorate the fountain and attracts tourists from all over. We also took pictures in front of the beautiful gates and the gardens around the street corner.

After seeing pieces of history, we grew hungry and took the tube to get to Regent’s University for some dinner. After entering, we were kindly reminded by a gentleman that the cafeteria closes on Saturdays. From there we turned around and boarded the tube once again, but this time to give a new restaurant in Russell Square, a try.

We arrived at Nando’s Restaurant; a place that is known for serving delicious Portuguese style chicken and delicious spices for it’s chicken.

Finally after dinner, we returned back to do some blogging and Internet surfing then a little sleep as we went to bed in anticipation for tomorrow’s historic trip.
