London – Day 3

Like every other day, up early, get breakfast and just go.

Day 3 was a lot more eventful than the day before. So on Sunday myself and my Mam went on a mad adventure trying to be tourists and seeing as much of London as we possibly could, we went on a wild walk around the places looking for the bus stop which turned out to be right across the road to our hotel so that was fun and amazing exercise!. As soon as we found it our bus arrived, we hopped on and headed to Hyde Park. Our plan was to just walk around see as much as we could that’s exactly what we did and to make it even better, it rained, so we walked for ages in the rain. Our first stop was Buckingham Palace, sadly we missed the changing of the guards, maybe next time.

As soon as be managed to get out of the Palace grounds we went on to the London eye. But as we were leaving the Palace grounds we say some guards out around.

On our way to the London Eye we ended up at the Women’s March.

Sadly the London Eye wasn’t working as was closed for that whole weekend. But we got such a nice view of it!

Then we went onto Big Ben and of course something was wrong with Big Ben too!! We got there and he was fully covered and wasn’t visible at all!

Did I mention it also snowed?, so after going around to them all in the rain and snow we decided to go back to our hotel, and again another big walk! We walked from the London Eye to Holborn and we went the longest way possible. While we were doing that my dad and the rest of my family were off shopping all day.

When we got back to Holborn we went and got something small to eat, changed our clothes and headed to Primark! It was so big and amazing!

After looking around we headed back to my dad who was at our hotel, we just sat around for a while and then we went for dinner in our family’s hotel, I wasn’t really feeling the hotel food so I didn’t have anything, I got McDonald’s on the walk back to our hotel. Literally nothing like our McDonald’s at all!!

London – Day 2

Our second day in London was a very chill one, we woke up early got our breakfast and headed to meet our family.

All we did was head out to the Camden Markets and look around, we spent most of the day going up and down looking at the stalls and shops. Most stalls were the same, literally same stuff different prices. We went into on shop and it was all vintage style and had the best light shades of the world, I couldn’t help but take a picture! They just looked amazing.

We did spent a good amount of time walking along the streets and of course it rained, so we were all got wet, around 1/2 o’clock we went back to Holborn to our hotels, as soon as we got back we went for some food in a fish and chip down along the streets in between our hotels. Soon as we finished we all went back to our own hotels and started to get ready for my dads cousins 60th birthday party which was in The Enterprise! It started at 7 and we didn’t even have a 5 minute walk to it which was great, but it was small enough and he was expecting a big crowd so in order to get a seat going early was the best option, so when I got back to my hotel, I relaxed for a bit then got a shower and dressed and put some makeup on, not much happened between then and the end of the party. Me and my mam left around half 10 because she wasn’t feeling well but my dad stayed till the end.

As soon as we got back all we did was get changed, remove makeup and go to bed haha!

So as I said a very chilled day.

Camden High Street.

We also went into a Mac store, which was so nice!

London – Day 1

On January 19th 2018 I finally got on a plane left Ireland and started an adventure. We woke up at 2 a.m. to start our drive to Dublin, We arrived went through security and all that then sat down and waited for our flight to board. My first every time on a plane and it was amazing, the smile never left my face! We arrived in Gatwick Airport at around 7 a.m. We then had an hour and a half drive to our hotel, literally the longest car journey of my life! We finally arrived at our hotel.

We stayed at the Grange Holborn Hotel which is a five star in central London, definitely isn’t the best or my favourite hotel I’ve stayed in anyways!

After we checked in ad dropped our bags to our room, we waited there for a little while for the rest of our family to come. They came to meet us at our hotel and we walked to a shopping centre, called Bloomsbury Shopping Centre. It was our frist day and we were getting to know the area we were in so we kind of just went with it and popped into any place we seen,  they had some lovely shops! Then as we finished looking around the shops we went for food, in this little bar on the side of the street know as the Holiday Inn. The food was amazing and the bar interior was lovely, all vintage themed.

Once we finished our food, we started walking down along the street where the bar was located and my two cousins came across a shop with a sign for the hop on hop off bus, so we decided to go in and buy 48h tickets because there was three different routes, the green, red & blue. We planned on doing one that day and then the other two the next, so we just went with whatever one came first nd that was the green route which was the Camden Loop. Which was the route non of us wanted to really go on haha and it was the shortest! It featured four stops Camden High Street, British Museum, Camden Markets & Sicilian Avenue.

As soon as we got off the bus we jumped into my Mam and dad who had just came from Gregg’s, we then continued on to the Premier Inn where all our family was staying expect us. We then went into The Enterprise, which was a bar beside their hotel where my uncle was in on his own so me, my parents and my cousin joined him. Not even 10 minutes later my two aunties and my dads cousins wife who is from London walked in and asked me, my Mam and cousin to the Disney store, so we went thinking we’ll be about a half an hour or so because we thought it was like just down the road and we were very wrong! Frist we went to the Holborn train station to get Oyster card for getting around, we got on a bus and headed to Oxford Street which was amazing, the streets were full of big and amazing shops but sadly we didn’t get around to all of them but what we did see was great! I’ll have to go back and just spend a whole day shopping there. We went around to a few shops and then everyone was getting tired so we got the tube back, me and my Mam went back to our hotel to my dad while the rest went to their hotel, later they went to the bar in their hotel and we soon went to meet them there for about an hour then we just went back to our hotel and went to bed early to get an early start the next day.

Losing Game Tour Galway

So on Monday I took a little 4 hour trip to Galway, it was so last-minute literally decided I was going like 6 hours before I was going to leave and then I just packed & left at 5am and of course I only booked the hotel on the train to Galway. We had to go all the way to Dublin to go across to Galway. We stayed in The Connacht Hotel that night! The reason for the trip was a concert with my friends, we went to go see a Irish boy band called Taken! The concert started about 2pm and  it was amazing like all of theirs are of course!.
