While I seem to take photos with infinite reckless abandon, my editing skills are not quite as speedy.
However I have at last edited enough that I can at last begin posting about my jam-packed adventures in London. Huzzah!
I’ll be doing them bit by bit since I have an abundance of photos but don’t want to overdo it. Also anticipation.
First off, we left Hastings at the heinous hour of 6am so that we could make the two hour drive to London (the Greenwich district) without getting caught in the even more heinous traffic. Once we arrived, it was straight off from the get-go.
We topped up our Oyster cards (for the Tube) and wound our way down the rail line until we were nearly in central London. But the “how” in getting there was our first treat: we were going to ride across the Thames on the Emirates Cable Cars.
Essentially like a super fancy chairlift, these sealed cars would gives us spectacular views from 300ft (90m) in the air for a 5-10 minute ride (felt like a lot shorter though it was so exciting).
We boarded and had ample time for getting a good shot of us all keen for our fantastic weekend ahead.
And once we were up we managed to take in some spectacular sights indeed.
All too soon it was over. A thoroughly worthwhile ride, however, and especially for a first time in London it was a pretty stylish entrance.
After that we made our way to the Tower of London – but I’ll save that for next post!
In the meantime I’ll let you shiver with antici-
