Sooo, this summer, I totally want to visit London. I remember learning a lot about it in school many years ago, and I’ve always wanted to go there. I never go on vacations because I never have anyone to join me. But I have set my mind on it, and I’m going, alone or not. I did ask my bff though and told her about my plans and that it would be incredibly awesome to spend a few days in London. We’ve known each other for 16 years now and we’ve never been on such a trip before. I mean, we’ve seen many places together but never only the two us. I just thought it would be great to do this, before I (hopefully!!!) head to the States in the fall. I told her that I don’t want to go there for shopping, although London has great fashion, I want to do hardcore sightseeing. I want to see it all and do it all. Madame Tussauds, a ride on the London Eye, Buckingham Palace, Tower Bridge, Big Ben and the thing I want to do most is visit the Harry Potter sets and totally visit the store and buy crap I don’t need. I want to do tea-time and maybe even try fish and chips. I would like to see Notting Hill and feel like Julia Roberts and sooo much more. We already agreed on packing our Nike free’s because we’re gonna do A LOT of walking. Maybe take the Tube and one of those red double-decker busses, once in a while. And while I was telling her, she was throwing in random prices because London is pretty expensive. But you know what? I don’t care! I mean, we both don’t have a lot of money, but I don’t have to stay at the fanciest hotel and eat like 5 huge meals a day. And we’re probably not gonna go partying or shopping. Ok, maybe a little. ;) But I really, really, really just want to see the city and take great pictures. I want to be a typical tourist, trying to make the guards move, hug every wax figure in the museum (and probably dry hump the David Beckham figure) and have some good Earl Grey tea.
I really hope that this will work out and if so, we will have a blast! After pitching the idea to her, I did what I do best: order material to plan this trip because that is what I also do best – plan things. I have travel guides and am still waiting for London themed sticky notes. (DON’T JUDGE ME!) I do have a lot of important things going on right, but as soon as I find time for this, I’m gonna plan it all. And I have to plan it as cheap as possible but I will manage that and I will make my best friend agree to all of it. I will succeed. ;) So if anyone has any tips or suggestions for must-sees, please let me know.
