Dude on a horse, Big Ben in the distance
So it is off to London this morning to get on the city bus (hop on hop off) to do a circuit of the city, we get to Trafalgar Square and oh no I have left my camera card behind... So I can't take any photos it is about 1/2 hour to get back to our hotel room on the train, so we go searching for a camera shop what it is nearly impossible to find one in a city that you have no idea where you are haa haa. We find a pharmacy and yes they sell them yay... So off we go again and finally get on the bus and it goes one stop then has to wait to change drivers now it is 2pm and we are finally on our way then they advise that we are on the yellow bus line and the round trip will take 2hours...what....There are 4 different colour lines. The buildings are amazing they are huge and beautiful and old, it was overwhelming, where do you go first? Big Ben and Westminster Abbey are so amazing.

We did the round trip and then couldn't decide what to do first,we wondered around got

We have booked our cuppa and it will be ready in 10 - 12 weeks
some food and then went to the art museum, there were staff on strike so we couldn't visit all the rooms, it is huge and so many paintings. We left there to go back to our room as we were so tired and aching feet, Lexie had a swim in the pool then we thought we could go back to the city and do something, maybe the London Eye, got down to the train station and Mal had forgotten his wallet so we had to wait for the bus back to our room to get his wallet then wait for the next bus to take us back to the underground then ride the tube to connect with another train it was 10pm by the time we got there so everything was closed Lexie found an arcade place for us to waste some money but would you believe it she spent 60p and won a minion soft toy from one of those claw machines she was so happy, we left the city to get home before midnight so tired collapsed on the bed clothes and all woke up 3am freezing
