London Day One: Arrival and Shopping


The view from our window, that's the Savoy the taxis going in to

Liberty London

Covent Garden nights <3

So, its been a little while since we actually went to London, but I got some nice photos from the weekend and I wanted to share it with y'all (apologies for the y'all, I'm spending a lot of time with my friends from Trinidad and its filtering into my vocabulary).

We got on the train to London around lunchtime on Friday. Travelling on the tube was rather painful with the case and hoards of tourists. We got to the hotel eventually, and it immediately felt worth the wait. My mother and I go on a weekend to London every year or so, and we usually stay at the Strand Palace (on the Strand, if you're interested/couldn't infer that from the hotels name). It's really lovely and has a great location in central London (its just down the road from Trafalgar's Square for those non-London savvy folk).

After a little rest, we headed out to Regents Street, as Friday was our hallmarked shopping day. We had a little look round a few shops (inc. Liberty ph. above) although we didn't buy much besides a couple of Godiva chocolate bars and some earrings from Accessorize.

We then wandered through Piccadilly Circus and headed over to M & M world to pick up the little present we were getting for my brother, as he wasn't coming with us. Afterwards, we decided upon dinner at Bella Italia, which wasn't very adventurous, but was delicious never-the-less (if you've never had their Godfather sundae you are living a half life).

We realised that our hotel wasn't very far so we decided to walk back, accidentally stumbling into Covent Garden on the way past. We had a look around as there's something rather atmospheric about Covent Garden in the evening. Afterwards we had an early night in the hotel, knowing that the next day was going to be rather long and exciting!
