One week in London
I'm dearly sorry about the lack of communication on here- We've been spending our days eating Portugese orange marmalade for brekfast before going out to explore what London has to offer. I'm sad to say that yesterday was our last full day in the beautiful but dreary city. We had a blast, we saw so much, but it is so hard to cover all of London within 6 days!!!
We've come a LONG way with our beer drinking. Before we left I couldn't even take a sip without spluttering, let alone finish a pint of beer. However, on Monday we found ourselves at the FOODIES FESTIVAL at some Palace (i'm having a mental blank with the real name of it) in an 'Unusual Beer Tasting' event*! Oh, England you are making us fat and broke with your amazing food samples at markets and festivals!
*Brendan, you'll be so proud of us!
We also went to the famous PORTABELLO MARKET, bought some adorable posters of London to take home with us. Explored London Bridge (which was NOT exciting) and Tower Bridge (which was exciting.)
We had a nice night playing cards and drinking cider* with the people we are staying with, but after, we went to explore London's nightlife scene, and tried to get into clubs and pubs which we didn't realise had a 21+ age limit (so devastating!!!!)
I have to say the most memorable thing we've done was go to Shakespeare's Globe Theatre and saw the Shakespeare play 'Much Ado About Nothing.' SO SO SO AMAZING! We were breathless! Neither of us had seen a Shakespeare comedy before, it was hilarious and the actors were just perfect! We didn't care that our 5 pound tickets meant we had to stand the whole time, nor the fact that it was open roof and we were rained on for three hours.
