London part 1

Last week I visited London, UK! I went there with my mother and without my little 1 year and 4 months old brother. It was my mum's first time travelling without him.
We were in London from Monday to Wednesday, so for 2 nights, 1 full day and two half days. It was a really quick and intense trip.
This post is about our second day there, the full day. Then we went shopping on Oxford street and did some touristic sightseeing. Luckily we reached Oxford street quite early in the morning(about 10 o'clock) and it wasn't very crowded yet, but by the afternoon it was full of people.
When we had tired ourselves with shopping, we walked from Oxford street to Westminster to see the Big Ben. Neither of us are very good at finding something in a strange city, so we got a little bit lost. But we were still able to reach the Palace of Westminster. Although I had seen it before, it was breathtaking and spectacular.
After seeing the Big Ben, we took the tube to the Tower of London and Tower bridge, because we just couldn't walk any more. I hadn't seen these two sight before and I really liked Tower bridge. We reached it when it was just starting to get dark, so the light were already on and it was beautiful. Near the bridge we could also see two famous skyscrapers - the Shard and the Gherkin.
After the exhausting day we ate at a Jamie Oliver's restaurant near our hotel and went to sleep early, about 9 o'clock local time.

Eelmisel nädalal külastasin ma Londonit, Inglismaad! Ma käisin seal koos oma emaga ja ilma oma väikese aasta ja neljakuuse vennata. Mu ema oli esimest kora ilma temata reisil.
Me olime Londonis esmaspäevast kolmapäevani, seega 2 ööd, ühe terve päeva ja kaks poolikut päeva. See oli väga kiire ja intensiivne reis.
See postitus on meie teisest, tervest päevast seal. Siis me käisime Oxford street'il šoppamas ja külastasime turistilikult vaatamisväärsusi. Õnneks jõudsime me Oxford street'ile üpris vara hommikul(umbes 10 ajal) ja seal ei olnud veel eriti palju inimesi, aga pärastlõunaks oli tänav paksult rahvast täis.
Kui me olime ennast šoppamisega ära väsitanud, jalutasime Oxford street'ilt Westminsterisse Big Ben'i vaatama. Me kumbki ei ole eriit hea võõras linnas orienteerumises, nii et me eksisime natukene ära. Aga õnneks jõudsime ikkagi kohale. Kuigi ma olin Big Beni varem näinud, oli see ikkagi väga võimas.
Peale Big Ben'i vaatamist sõitsime me metrooga Tower of Londonit ja Tower Bridge'i vaatama, sest me ei jaksanud lihtsalt enam ühtegi kilomeetrit kõndida. Ma ei olnud neid vaatamisväärsusi varem näinud ja mulle meeldis Tower bridge väga. Me jõudsime selleni siis, kui hakkas juba vaikselt pimedaks minema ja kõik tuled olid juba põlema pandud ning see oli imekaunis. Silla juurest nägime ka kahte kuulsat pilvelõhkujat - the Shard'i ja the Gherkin'it.
pärast seda ülimalt väsitavat päeva sõime oma hotelli lähedal asuvas Jamie Oliveri restoranis ja läksime vara magama(kohaliku aja järgi 9 ajal).

Probably the most touristic shot you can take in London:)





Starbucks!!!

On the second day in London I wore a cozy and warm coat, skater skirt, nice and comfy shirt, a big scarf and sneakers that look a bit like creepers. I accessorized the outfit with a chain necklace and a fringe bag.

Wearing: coat, skirt, bag: H&M/ shirt: Gina Tricot/ shoes: Vans/ necklace: Lindex

I kept my metro card in my phone case, so when I was validating it, it looked like I just got in with my phone :)
