On Our Own To British Museum, London

FOURTH DAY IN LONDON ON OUR OWN....

Aaron left for Aberdeen on Monday and we were on our own in London for two more days.  The three of us left behind had to be very careful and alert, as in how and where to go, which terminal to take the tube, which station to stop and so forth.   I even recorded on my phone just in case we forgot how... LOL... Aunties are like that!

Anyway, with an ex-marine with us, we ladies have some confidence.... somehow we managed to get our way out from the airport terminal, down to the tube station and all the way to town, stopping at Holborn, took our lunch at Nando's and then walked another ten minutes through the park before reaching the British Museum!

Again, admission is free..... only that we have to queue up for security inspection which was very swiftly done....
Outside Nando's after our brunch.... 


We walked through the park.... 
And the road leading to the London Museum opposite...
Just some meters away.... 
And here we are.... 
A fast queue leading into the entrance...
Inside the museum.... 
Some live performance was going on...
We walked here and there.... 
A couple of hours spent inside... 
before we headed out to a chinese restaurant for dinner.... 
Wrong move, it was rush hour when we reached the station... 
Checking out the map to see 
if there is another nearer station where it was not so crowded...
Somehow, we managed to make our way back to Heathrow Airport
Back to our comfortable hotel at Premier Inn...

Day Tour To Covent Garden, London Tower And Tower Bridge

SIGHTS TO SEE.... sightseeing time walking around the city exploring the London Tower, the bridge, walking all the way from here to there and everywhere!

First time visit for my sister and she was so fascinated with the places we took her, so different from US and she really loves it a lot.  She kept saying and repeating that she would love to come back again to London... she knows where to stay, how to go about it at the tube station and so forth.  Well, I hope we shall come back again in the near future!
We took her to Covent Garden.... 
Live performances at the market... 
As usual, I cannot resist Ice Cream!!
Regardless of the weather!
Queued up for Ben's cookies... and ice cream for myself...
Yes, only Me is the One for desserts!
Having a good time at Covent... before proceeding to the Tower of London....
The icon of London... 
As usual.. long queues going into the castle... 
Marking our presence here and there.... 
Walking along the Tower Bridge.... 
Skies are blue... nice weather ...  YAY!
It is all about walking and more walking...
Prepare to wear a good pair of comfortable shoes.... 
HMS Battleship Belfast... 
A panoramic view... 
Peace to London!!
Good to be back again even just for a few days!

Let's Eat At EAT TOKYO, London

ANOTHER COINCIDENCE!

Gabriel is in London visiting too!!  We did not plan to go together but somehow, he was there visiting too during the time we were in London... a perfect timing!  We arranged to meet up on Monday for lunch, making reservation at Eat Tokyo, a Japanese restaurant in Holborn.... Aaron told us that this is the best Japanese restaurant around London and we must try!  No western food for that day cos the Big Man did not join us for this day outing.  The Bovington Tank Museum might has "exhausted" up all his energy the day before!  LOL...
At the Eat Tokyo restaurant.... 
While waiting for our orders.... 
One Bento set cost around 8-9 pounds sterling... 
Comes with a bowl of Miso soup too... 
Big enough for the boys .... 
A very giant bowl of Ramen....
HUGE!!! 
After giving thanks... one more task to do!!
LOL...
