day one (monday)
Germany... rainy... wet and cold weather. i put my clothes in a bag and try to don't forget important things like my passport or money
i'm waiting at my bus and recognized that i forgot my mp3 player...*don't*
at the airport....*don't* i forgot a second pair of socks -.-' ok nothing really important.. my friend and i sitting in the airplane... and it moves..*wuhu*... our first flight *____*... we where very nervose and anxious.. the plane drives very slowly around a curve with max. 30 kmh or less.... and then it stand at the right course and the pilot turn the hand gear from "slowly drive mode" to "heavy we want fly mode"... very exiting ...we gonna pressed in our seats and i could see out of my window ..and saw the beautiful sundown ..but only some few seconds ... then we were at the clouds ^^... and the only thing i could see was the wing of our airplane
but over the cloud amazing view!!!
The landing was ..nothing to speak of... very unspectacularly.
at Liverpool street staiton...... first policemen we saw .. brish policemen!... standing there with huge machine guns and in a pose like "yeah i have a gun .. i'm a policemen .. and we're the coolest guys ever"... i thought "that is the wrong country.. i want to England and not into the USA"... i try to look not conspicuously.. maybe there where exchange policemen ^^?
we search our hotel... we had a map from our travel agency ...it should be 10 min. footwalk from the station to the hotel... that was wrong!!!!... we walk one or two hours to find it..the map says we where there.. we should see it..but we didn't .. so we ask a policemen ..she was very nice... but the first thing that she said us after she saw the address from the hotel was "ohh.. that's MILES AWAY"
.. we were totaly shocked.. then she try to describe the "underground" way.. but after the third station we're forgot the first and second... we're called a taxi ^-^'....27£ from the place we where to our hotel..i'm so angry with the travel agency!!!
ok.. we arrived.. our feets hurts a little bit.. and we're tired... ..nice room everything was fine with the hotel ^^
day two (tuesday)
breakfast... buffed.. nice ..yummy ^^
then we start .... we try to find a way into the city 27£ is far away from the main city ... decided to use the bus.. to we driveway 50 min... and we were not sure where we should exit the bus .. but one time we must ^^... so at a place somewhere at london we exit the bus.. and walk beside some construction zones and bus stations after two hours we found a bridge...the beautiful lovely Themse and a souvenir shop..and very important .. the tourist busses.. we said "halleleluja"... we take our seats in the bus and drive through the whole city.. over the Tower Bridge beside the Tower of London ... we saw the London Eye..and then the Big Ben *__* and a lot more!!..... we exit the bus at the Buckingham Palace... take some photographs and walk to the Westminster Abbey....*______________*... brilliant architecture!!! (btw.. the architecture in this city is awsome!!).. i love so many buildings
Big Ben and House of Parliement *___*.... ....awsome!!!....
after it we made a city boat tour from London Eye to Tower Bridge and back.. but we made only the half tour ..ergo from london eye to the tower ^^... we want make a tour into the tower .. but we were to late the tower closed in the next hour and only one hour is to less for it.
we eat something at the Tower.. but *urg*... i had a bought chicken and chips *urg*.... the chicken *urg*... the chips was ok.. not my taste but ok... but the chicken... the skin *urg*
at the other riverside we could see the eye again... and we walk..and walk walk walk... and saw... the Eye was at the other side of the river *don't*...the next bridge -.-'... our feet we're death and the legs hurts!!..i had 2 blisters under my feets -.-*
and we arrived the Eye ... lucky we dosn't must queued ^-^... we sit down at a gondola from the eye.. and enjoyed the view ^^
the way to the hotel... after the eye we try to use the "underground" to come so close as possible to our hotel... we take two tubes and .. 20 min. later we were at our hotel ^-^
day three (wednesday)
i couldn't move... but i want see the changing guards at the Buckingham Palace... and i did!!
we were late.. but the guards were late too...and slow.. and soooooooo many people where there.. i mean that is everyday or every second day... so many people o_O'
want go to the Tower... but our legs and feets don't want it so we go to our hotel and want to check out.. but the keycard doesn't work anymore..(check out at 12am (nobody said us)...and it was 15pm..) so we ask and get a new keycard to get our bag.. we are slow.. we get it .. make a little little break 5 min... and then we would use the elevator with the keycard .. but the keycard doesn't work again... and no stairs!!!..lucky there were some people from the hotel they help us out -.-'...
we made a short stop at king's cross ^^ and bank of england.. and then ....way home XD
