These were my Facebook updates on my 48-hour whirlwind trip to London this past February. It brings back all the warm and fuzzy feels!
-Five hour energy shots are worth their weight in gold.
-The Tube is AMAZING.
-Apparently 52' with a real feel of 45' makes Londoners break out their shorts, skirts, and fishnets. (Winter heat wave?)
-I've helped more tourists today than I ever have in the states.
-My life is complete now that I've seen the Rosetta Stone & the Sutton Hoo exhibit. Weepy glees.
-Buying the last minute ticket here was the best decision ever.
|"Just you wait, 'Enry 'iggins, just you wait! |
You'll be sorry but your tears will be too late!"
-My boots walked all over the graves of kings. I felt very irreverent.
- I practically wept at Chaucer's grave.
-Apparently part of a bobby's job description requires the possession of an amazing sense of humor.
-London needs to hire more pigeons at St Paul's so I can connect with my inner Mary Poppins.
-There is a 27A Wimpole Street!!! (My Fair Lady, anyone?)
-Enjoying sausages and mash at Garfunkles with Aunt Marcy and Uncle Doug couldn't have been better!
-The Tower is especially creepy at night.
Thoughts on Day 3:
-"Are Beefeaters vegetarians?"
-"Ladies, I once guarded David Beckham, and he asked for MY autograph!"
-The carvings in Beauchamp Tower are sobering, especially from those who were later executed.
-The ravens at the Tower do not quoth nevermore. It's more like "nevahmoh."
-I almost thought I saw Dick van Dyke dancing on the rooftops last night.
-When can I come back?!
What were some of your initial thoughts & impressions of London on your first visit?
