I cannot believe that it is my last week in London! This trip has gone by so quickly. I will be sad to leave one of my favorite cities again but do not worry London, I will be back!
Tuesday morning was a busy and wonderful day. Chris and I walked over ten miles Tuesday and I enjoyed every minute of it. I woke up around 6:00 am on Tuesday and did some research for my paper. It was a great way to get focused for the day and think about the direction I want to take for my paper. After I finished some research and writing that morning Chris and I met up for a whirlwind tour of London.
We started the morning off by getting two cups of coffee from Costa. It was definitely needed after such an early morning. Chris loves the coffee here. It can be very strong and bitter. I tend to stick to the cold blended coffees! Maybe one day I will acquire a more grown up taste for coffee, ha! We then headed to Waterloo station and topped of our tube cards. There was a girl in line who had never bought a tube pass before and I was actually able to help her determine what she needed and purchase her first tube pass. I felt like a real Londoner!
We then took the tube and headed down the Thames to the Globe. After a look around the Globe we walked over the Millennium Bridge to Saint Paul's. I am always in awe of that building. We then hopped on the tube again and went down to the Tower of London and London Bridge. Chris was becoming a pro at navigating the tube at this point! After a stroll on the London Bridge Chris and I decided we had time for one more stop before lunch. We headed down to Covenant Gardens to look at all the shops and walk around. It was nice because Covenant Garden was not crowded at all. We were actually able to stroll around the whole area. We then headed back down to the South Bank for Lunch at Eat and some frozen yogurt from Snog. Chris absolutely loves Snog, he has had it everyday since he got here. There is also a book sale on the South Bank but I was never able to make it to it. Lucky for us, we were able to stop by the book sale and found two first edition copies of Harry Potter! I am by no means a book collector but I would have kicked myself later if I had not purchased these books! Chris had a great eye spotting them. Hopefully we will find the rest of the Harry Potter collection.
