A London Adventure

Today I did a walking tour of London! During it I saw Big Ben (name of the bell inside the clock tower not the clock tower itself), Trafalgar Sqaure and Buckingham Palace and so many more sights! It was absolutely enthralling and magnificent. It just took my breath away. It was raining on and off but luckily I’d brought a raincoat with me to keep me as dry as possible. I had a traditional English cornish pastie and fish and chips.

I saw Tower Bridge opening (it’s often called London Bridge by accident, when London Bridge looks very different). The bridge opened of course to let through a tall boat. All the cars and people and cyclists were stopped from crossing the bridge so we all watched on in wonder as the road opened up above our heads. Then I caught the tube back to Great Portland Street Station and relaxed. I can’t wait until tomorrow! ­čśÇ

The Gap Year

I did my Bachelor of Journalism degree straight after graduating from year 12. No gap year, no break, albeit a four month holiday before uni began! Three years passed and I graduated from my degree in December last year.

This year, so far has been my gap year.

So I spent 2012 working and saving and working and saving, until at last, with a little (more like a lot) of help from family financial contributions, I was able to have the funds to allow me to finally have my Great Britain and Europpean adventure!

Having already heard how amazing the places I wanted to go to (England, France, Germany and Italy) are from friends and a well-travelled cousin, I decided that finally, at the age of 21, I was going to have the opportunity to go out and see the world.

I’ve been to England and Germany before, but I was only two years old so all I really remember is a gigantic snow covered Christmas (pine) tree from Germany.

So the tickets have been purchased and the time is drawing nearer. On the ninth of July this year, I’m flying to London and then my adventure will have truly begun!
