Ella, Louey & Soph's Travels!
Hey all!!! Have finally arrived in London! Still can't believe I'm here but hey think thats a combination of a little bit of a hangover and major jetlag! I did manage to stay awake until 10:30 last night after i arrived but still unfortunately woke up at 4 this morning! So, where to start i guess is the hard part!! Flight wasn't too bad! Soph came to meet me at airport which was great and then we somehow managed to wait around at the airport from 6:30 till midday until Robbie arrived from Franfurt!! We even held up a sign at the gate for him....'robbie nobby'! He was very pleased...hehe! Then finally dropped our bags off at our soon to be homes for the next week in London! Then it was on the tube for our first adventure! First went to Covent Garden, wandered around there...so many buskers everywhere its insane! Had our first beer....ended up feeling fairly tipsy though as the no sleep and flying was slightly still affecting me....but hey, to tell you the truth just felt like one of those big benders back in sydney! hehe!! Then soph, rob and I (Lou was in Wimbledon for the day!) decided it would be fun to go to hyde park and drink a cheap bottle (or two) of wine! :) We met up with Rob's friend Luke (from back in Sydney) and we drank it up right near Buckinhgam Palace and all the queen's horses men!! After the sun had set which wasn't until 10:15 at night we made our way to Piccadilly Circus for one more cheeky beer! Picaddily Circus is amazing, like a miniature New York! By the way, will probably post all the photos from London just before we leave for Greece on Tuesday! Finally soph and i made our way back to Fullem (where Sophie's cousin's lives and coincidentally Lou's friend lives!) and lugged my backpack to see Lou at her place where we'll be staying for the rest of the week! So, today think its more touristy stuff around London, going to go to Notting Hill on Saturday, probably watch the England vs. Portugal soccer match somewhere around there and visit avvie's sister!! Hope you're all well! Feels like I've already been gone for ages.....so strange!!! Love you all and missing you! xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxox
