Honestly I hadn’t expected to be this completely mind blown by London.
And yet here I am barely 2 days in and already asking my mom if I could go to university here.
I don’t even mind the not-that-great weather!!!
Daaaang London is big though! I thought I know a little something about big cities living in Vienna and all, but walking into this huge mall or waiting for the underground tube (did you know they come at a two minute interval!!?? Can I say awesome!!!?) I felt like freaking Heidi from the Alps.
So what did I do the last 2 days you ask? Well, to be honest I spent most of my time wandering cluelessly around Canary Warf and the Canary Warf subterranean mall trying fruitlessly to get a bearing of my surroundings.
The rest I spent at Starbucks.
Just kidding. (A little.)
Here are some Snapchats I sent during my first day:
Tomorrow I’ll probably check out the London Eye, Buckingham and other touristy spots
I’ve got one word for you.
The place to be. I could hardly contain my moan of pleasure (interpret that as you want) when I found the notebook section.
The book section isn’t too shabby either.
Also Waterstones gets me like no one else before:
So naturally my next stop was Frozen Yogurt. (How in the name Gummibear do you write yoghurt? With h? Or without? Yogurt? Yoghurt? Yohgrtjrt? Anybody?)
And no London day is complete without a musical in the evening to round things off.
I had the pleasure of witnessing the much controversial opinionated Lord of the Dance. (To the windowww to the waaaaaall )
Not what I expected.
Lots of tap dancing.
Not really a musical.
And some topless guys thrown in for good measure.
I liked it (and not just because of the respectable amount of sixpacks).
My mom not so much.
Either way neither of us was flabbergasted. But fun was had either way. smile
Look I’ve even made a new friend bigsmile
Speaking of friends, any London bloggers out there who feel like meeting up? :D
Ok y’all I’m going to log off now as the sun is actually shining!!
A very rare sight, indeed.
