London I

Hello everyone!

As you know, I was in London a few weeks ago with my mom. We stayed at my great grandmothers house for 9 days.
The weather was great, but there were two days of a bit cooler and a bit more windy like weather.
But now when I look back I'd go there again and again...! :)

Day one!
We had to unpack our things and take a look around the neighborhood - Hammersmith. It's very nice, mom said that it's cleaner now after 9 years. We loved Primark and why wouldn't we, super cool clothes for a good price! 

Day two!
We got up early in the morning and went to Greenwich with the tube - such a good transport system! We have our own Oyster cards now :) 
Greenwich is beautiful! I saw Cutty Sark before it was caught of she is a beauty in a glass fence. We visited the Greenwich Market, which I recommend to all you craft-art lovers, because you will find a lot of good, clever, quality crafts there! We also visited Clocktower Market - full of antiques which are my favourite things to watch.
And because that was all for day one on our "plan", we took the tube and went off at the Monument (also the station is called that). You have all the information on it, so here is a picture.

Day three!
We took the tube and left it somewhere near St. Paul's Cathedral 
and walked to it, take a look around and then went to One New Change - a huge department store with an elevator that takes you up to the roof, looking directly to the Cathedral. And on the top you have a great panoramic view of the city.
And after that we went to Piccadilly Circus and up to Soho.

Day four!
Tate Modern was our first stop. Interesting art work - loved Picasso and Pollock and of course Turner. The gallery is interesting by itself and on the top you have a great view of St. Paul's Cathedral and the River Themes. 
After that we went along the shore, passing Globe Theater, The Shard and arriving to Tower Bridge :)
Across river Themes bypassing Tower of London and we stopped at Westminster and then we went home :)

Five days to come, so stay tuned!
