I had planned to write this entry about London in three seperate parts because of all the pictures, but since I'm traveling to Spain on Thursday (and I didn't want to post three entries about the same subject in 24 hours), I will just write this entry. So, please bear with me this long and tedious entry about my three days in London with my sister.

We came to London early in the morning, and went straight to the hotel to leave behind our luggage. Since neither of us have done anything too touristy in our previous trips to London, we had planned to see many attractions. We started with four museums: Science, Natural History, National Portrait Gallery and National Gallery. It has to be said that neither of us really takes our time in museums, and that we walked fast through the lot of them. Not too cultural and ladylike, eh? When the evening came we ate a better meal at Friday's (not very cultural either) and took a spontaneous trips to the theatre to see The 39 Steps. It was great fun!

The day started early when we went to the Tower of London. We came there around opening hours and joined the Yeoman Warden tour. The guide was very funny and the tour was lovely, but it was bit too crowded (that's tourist traps for you). We spent a couple of hours walking around on our own. I really love british history so it was by far the most enjoyable touristy thing we did in those three days (beside the theatre). After those hours at the Tower, we went to a cozy tavern in the St. Katherine Docks to eat fish and chips. Then we walked all the way from the tavert, over the Tower Bridge and along the Thames to the Southbank Centre. In the evening we went out shopping and eating.

We had some hours to kill before heading to the airport. We started the morning by eating breakfast in St. James' Park, then walked through the park to the Buckingham Palace, took the tube to Cowent Garden where we bewildered ourself into some christian café to buy ourself a milkshake. Not really our cup of coffee, but at least the milkshakes were good.
