london calling


It's been a whirlwind since we arrived over a week ago and I've been feeling terribly guilty about neglecting my little three buttons blog. Here is a brief summary so far!

Likes
Red double decker buses
Beautiful buildings and streetscapes
Friendly people
Hearing English accents
East End
Black cabs
Travelling with Allison
Indian curry
Marks & Spencer
English breakfast

Dislikes
Pollution
The long flight from Australia
The lack of free wi-fi connections
Jet lag
Cancelled services to Paris via Eurostar

Astounded By
The carefree way cyclists get around on the narrow and busy streets

On Sunday we are off to Copenhagen and hopefully a short trip to Sweden, then it's back home. I can't wait to show all the photos and stories I have to share. More to come!
