Thank God for free internet access at this hotel or I would be totally out of my element.
OK so, a bit of updates to be had here, in the past few days mom and I have been all over England it seems. Though one of the downfalls of being an only child is that I have almost zero alone time and I feel myself slipping in and out of sanity….no bother I suppose. How can I complain I am in one of the most amazing metropolises in the world.
Yesterday we went to the London Eye, the big ferris wheel built on the other side of Big Ben to boost tourism here in london. Though I have never been afraid of heights in my life, for some reason the ride had me feeling a little uneasy, perhaps its the fact that each little ‘eye pod’ is connected on the outside of the wheel and it was just inexplicably creep0la.
After our visit to the London Eye, I was feeling completely delerious and had to get away from my mom for a hot minute. As I’m sure you can understand, 24/7 with 1 parents solo is a little intense, especially because I am known to be a tad hot tempered and as i’m sure you can imagine it gets a little intense… So after a healthy fight I was able to have a change to break off and explore the city by myself for an hour, ipod in hand, and open minded. I even caught the changing of the guard over at Buckingham Palace, a truly glorious sight.
The crowd was a little hectic but it was interesting to be in such an international crowd, somethin I would have never experienced while in Irvine.
We also hit up the Absolut Ice bar, an essential while here in London. The bar is kept at a cool 20 F in order to keep everything (that is made out of ice) including cups, the bar, and…the bartenders, completely frozen. It costs 12£ to get in but that includes your first beverage. I must admit its a little overpriced but again, this is the price of tourism..
Oh god, as I am typing this my mother is screaming at me because I didn’t properly explain to her how to upload photos on facebook. fuckkkk my life. I cant wait until september 19th when I return to my native Italia!!
OK ok i need to move on with my travels, we went on a 9hr bus tour with a bunch of Obese americans to Windsor Castle, the city of Bath (home of Jane Austen, and the famous Roman bath houses, and of course Stonehenge) Here are some photos from the days tour.
To be honest, I was very excited to see Stonehenge, and my expectations were not disappointed. For some reason I have an intense and irrational fasication with unexplainable monuments of prehistory. I had a minor aneursym seeing this magnificent site… I mean, how could you not be overwhelmed by its awesome ness?? The unexpected part was that it really is located in the middle of nowhere, about a 3 hour bus ride from London. Because we came in off-season there were barely any tourists either, which made the experience all the more magical
Ok, that’s about all for now. We are in London until friday Sept 5th and then off to Stockholm, Sweden to begin a new adventure. I dont know how good my internet access will be once I leave London but I will try my best. Nonetheless, I have been takin a shit load of photos and plan to upload them all once I return home.
Miss you and love you all
Until next time…..!
