K+K Travel Adventures
Well, we are finally in london....trying to relax a little and see the sites but of course nothing ever goes as planned.....even though we are not staying at the generator(an amazing travel hostel) we are making use of it's amazingly cheap bar....£1. You cannot go wrong.... our hotel is nice and overlooks russel square, right close to british museum and soho. Kirsten and I walked along oxford street hoping to find an H&M but unfortunaly all we found was shoes....lots of SHOES. After spending £20 for three pairs of shoes (amazing isnt!) we continued our adventure only to find more shopping...Kirsten bought the most amazing leapord wrap dress and i found myself a little something as well.....I think nana is going to kill us by the time we get home but hey, when in rome.....shop. We ventured back to the british museum where we met up with my friend ashely(school friend) to party at the generator. seven drinks later and we were really having a good time...kirsten and i made friends...many of which thought i was canadian....maybe it is the false british accent that i am trying to pull offf.....who knows. Mostly we met aussies, but there have been a few americans. I met some teacher who is traveling to barcelona--of course i had to share my tips. some many guys so few nights......unfortuntaly they are not as nice as those in banchory, at least drinks were free there. looking through our photos in the morning was quite amazing....who's that? where did he come from? what was even more embarassing was introducing yourself again the next day after not remembering who anyone was.....love it. Today kirsten and I treated ourselves to a little something (big suprise) and are eagerly waiting for happy hour to start at the generator.... it is hot as hell in london...i dont think that I have ever sweat so much in my life. the payphones are a pain in the ass as they hardly work, smell like piss, and £1 get's you about 60 seconds of talk time....grrr. we have been walking everywhere and hopefully tomorrow we will get to all the big sites.....v&a, westminster, big ben....etc. Nana--we trying to stay away from Harrod's as they are having their annual sale right now and i really dont need another pair of shoes...... anyways, we are off to the bar....
