London 2014

(my sister in the Taxi)
We arrived early in the morning to City Airport.
The funny accent of the taxi driver welcomed us.

DAY 1: Typical London Picture 

The Big Ben (theory. ahahha sorry)

London Eye

The Taxi looked like this, there were many of these...

On the Victoria Street we found Topshop. We stopped to admire the pieces of art like this bag...

I tried on a crop top but I did not purchase it as it was way too overpriced for a simple white piece of fabric.

LATER on... travellers got hungry.
We randomly popped into Itsu, one of the 100000 healthy fast food restaurants in London.
There is also EAT (where we had breakfast once) , Pret a manger and many more.
(I hope the concept also expands to the rest of Europe!)

Visiting a Palace? who cares, lets take a cute pic of us!
(yes, my hair is slightly red now)

DAY 2: Jurassic Park???

More dead dinosaurs eh

Natural History Museum.
The dinosaurs look amazing, totally recommend you to visit them.
Also I do NOT recommend their cafeteria, it was very dirty and crowded...

DAY 3: My marriage to Leonardo Di Caprio.

Or Johnny Depp??

Yes, its the Madame Tussauds Museum...wax figures can look so alive...
Charlie Chaplin here

Can I be the next Bond girl?

Oh by the way, Justin is my 3rd husband.

Hey Amy!

IN THE EVENING... we went to Starbucks (because my sister wanted so much to visit this place,because of the paper cup pictures on instagram haha)
Ok so the coffee was...watered american coffee or milk with some coffee essence and other aromas.
Acceptable. The pastries shown in the picture where really yummy!
The service was okey but the bathroom...NO PAPER!. Ok I used tissues i had with me...and now wash the hands with..NO SOAP!. I was not carrying soap eh so I went to the guys bathroom to wash my hands there. Ofc there was soap as guys are not popular for washing their hands (sorry its true) and apart from the soap there was a guy peeing. I did not even look eh but I politely excused myself and then left.

By the way this was my coffee haha. Very warm <3

DAY 4: Hyde Park, by the lake.

And the swan swam.

Where was this? Oxford Circus?
Anyways I love how there is the sign of ''WAIT'' it caught my attention.
Also what was really different for me was the left side driving. (well, I saw that already in Thailand, but I still can't get used to it!)

Huge Screens.
The next building to this one was the ''Ripley's Believe it or Not'' Museum.

This place is all about...weird stuff and rare things from all over the world!
Here I am on a table and...wait, where are my legs??
(ok the angle of the picture is not good as you can see the walls do not join...brr)
Real size Ferrari out of knit. Now that is what I call lots of free time.

This man can look normal from far away but... please notice the eyes!
I wonder how his vision would be like..or maybe he saw normally but there is a fake iris.

Torture time brrr.
(by the way here you see my washed-red-color hair, which I re-did after coming back from London)

When you combine food with art you create...something above art.
This was my favourite section of the museum. Artists take food and create landscapes!

Spot the potatoes, the salmon...

And the toilet paper dresses ahah 
These would be PERFECT for when you go to a public toilet with no paper (ex: Starbucks eh)
So you just cut a piece of your dress et voila!

They told me to drink milk to grow up. I drank it. Did not work very well.
But for this guy and his family it did and omg life would be so hard for them no? Like fitting in airplanes, at work, at a restaurant, a special sized home... #shortPower!

Blacklight? My sister's sweater is amazing (but she is more)

DAY 5: Harrods says hello.

What is a Bahbohh Travel post without some food porn?

Here we were at Harrods, having lunch at the 5th floor if i'm correct.
This is a chicken+red pepper sandwich if i'm not wrong.
(I see what you did there!)

Smoked salmon salad. Did I mention I am obsessed with smoked salmon? Well I love salmon in all its shapes aha. 

My not-so-attractive soup.
It had beans and ham yum yum.

London Eye!
(I wear glasses to see from far)
The view.

As it got higher...
At first I thought I'd be scared of the height, as I tend to be scared of heights (but even more of depths!) But to my surprise it was a very relaxing trip with no stress at all! It went really slow.

WE TOOK THE TUBE many times. Basically everyday, but we also used the buses that took us to a bus station near the hotel.

This is the Liberty megastore! There were more, like Selfridges (we did some shopping there!) and John Lewis. 

First day of sale at Harrods. Crazy.

Well, surprisingly I did not take pictures of the hotel room...I was too busy jumping on the bed with my sister, drinking tea or having a shower.
it is a 5 star boutique hotel.
I don't usually go to 5 star hotels (usually means never ahha)
So I found it extremely comfortable. It has EVERYTHING (if you ask for it)
It also had a health club which we did not visit as we were busy exploring the city.
Our rooms were Standard and were connected with an internal door 
(which doubled the size of the room)

The best thing about it (from a traveller's point of view) is that it was only 200metres from the bus+train+underground station.

Overall, London was amazing.
