Good evening, long time no blogging!
I’ve not been posting for some time, mostly because I’m too lazy to upload the photos and put them into a post, because it takes quite some time. However, I’ve got a few things to show you so here I am again! Last week Thursday, the 2nd of August, I met up with some of my Dutch friends, Marit (and her family, which I know very well because we’ve been friends since we were 7) and Ludo, whom I know since high school. They were staying near the Tube station Holborn, so that was where they picked me up.
We then relaxed in the (spacious) appartment, and eventually decided to go to the Tower, have some lunch, visit the Tower and after that look around the expensive Bond street. We had some lovely lunch, very close to the area where the Danish were watching the Olympics!
Eventually we came to the Tower, but it was already 4pm by then and the Tower would close around 5. Since the tickets are ridiculously expensive (20pounds) we decided that one hour wouldn’t be worth it. We did have a nice walkabout in the area though.
So after that we went to Bond Street and looked at all the expensive shops, which was cool. However, my sandal broke so I had to walk with one bare foot for a little while haha! Fortunately Oxford Street was close so I bought some nice new sandals for just 6 pounds at Forever 21.
We decided to pay famous Selfridges a visit! Wow, INCREDIBLY big and so cool to walk around! Especially the food department… everything looked so delicious..
In the evening, after a delicious dinner at a pub, we went to Hyde Park to watch some Olympics. Really nice atmosphere!
I had an amazing day, it was absolutely great to see my friends again!! If you are reading this, thank you again for the wonderful day. Next post is coming up soon!
