I'm so relieved to be here in London for the first time! It is now day 2 and our first day in London. The last two days have really flown by quickly as I'm sure the whole holiday will.
We left early on Saturday morning (18th) and arrived early at the airport and were ready to board the plane at 2pm. In total I watched at least 25 TV shows and 2 movies. The plane flight took 9 and a 1/2 hours to reach Hong Kong and 12 hours to complete the flight and arrive in London.
Coming out of the airport we were escorted to a taxi and driven to our accommodation named the Youth Hostel Association (YHA). When we arrived at the hostel it was 7am and check-in was not until 2pm, so we decided to take a little walk down the street to see what was around. About 5 minutes down the road was Oxford Street, the biggest and busiest shopping street in the whole of Europe! Wow what great shops. We then went to Marble Arch known for it's great size and beauty. Next to to the Marble Arch is Hyde Park famous for it's huge amount of land and space.
Afterwards we returned to the hostel for a break, then ended up going out for dinner at the local cafe and coming home for a good nights rest...
