Every summer I pack my bags and am off to visit
one of my favorite city in the whole wide world - London!
I cannot tell you why I am so in love with the huge city, full of people running around but visit London is vacation. Vienna is a lot smaller and not as busy as the British capital but when I visited for the first time in 2004, I was hooked.
I went on a school trip to Cambridge for a week and we drove down to London for a day and visited the Royal Observatory in Greenwich and took the boat back to Westmister. There we were told that we now had 3 hours to do whatever we wanted and after that we went back to Cambridge. 3 hours? No way, that we were able to do or see anything. So me and one of my boys took a walk up Whitehall and ended at Picadilly Circus. We sat there, did some people watching and enjoyed soaking up the flair. When we came back to meet the rest of our class, we were the ones who had a good time. The others either got frightened at the London Dungeon or went shopping on Oxford Street (which meant rushing from store to store). That day I knew I had to come back as soon as possible.
Since the summer of 2004 my mum and I go to London each summer and enjoy a few days of vacation, book shopping, people watching and amazing food (yes, I never had a bad experience with English food).
Have a great week because I sure will!
