After a tough month The Bloke surprised me with train tickets to London. It’s one of our favourite places and we try and go there are few times a year. The timing was perfect – it is the Easter holidays, the weather has been glorious and we both needed a break, so by 8.00am we were stood in London Euston, trying to work out where we wanted to go. We decided to get the Tube down to the Thames – it was a bright, sunny day and we thought that a walk along the river would be a good place to start.
It was a little colder than I expected, but luckily there was a Starbucks nearby where I could get us a hot chocolate. We saw St. Paul’s Cathedral in the distance and so we walked to it, stopping to take in the sights and sounds along the way. It was a good decision to go in the morning as it was already beginning to get quite crowded.
Our train home was at 4.00pm, so we tried to do as much as possible. We went to the National Portrait Gallery, Trafalgar Square, Leicester Square, Piccadily Circus and I bought macarons from Covent Garden. We were tourists for the day.
I was so tired by the end of it that I slept for half of the train journey home and then again when we got back to the house…
Here are some of the pictures. They were all taken with my iPhone. as always, I’d love to know what you think!
