Eurotrip. Summer. 2005.

London, England |

By this point it was my 4th time in London on this trip and I was simply staying one night in a hostel and meeting up with my sister again. We had split up for 2 weeks while she went to visit people in the Netherlands. We spent one night at Astor Victoria Hostel near Victoria Station and caught the bus to Heathrow early the following morning. It was sad to walk the streets one last time. But it was a moment to remember.

This city amazed me. I was very excited to be in London. Everything from the black cabs, old statues the fountains, the properness and royalty feel.. I love London. There public transit system is something else.. like no where else I've ever been. It will boggle your mind! Their subway map looks like a spider web!

The city is great if you want to visit a many sites. I saw Trafalgar Square (loved it!!), Big Ben, Went on the London Eye, Saw London Bridge & Tower of London, Went though Hyde Park many times, Kensington Park, Saw Kensington Palace, Buckingham Palace, Buckingham Court, Pickadily Circus (wow!) etc..

During my stay in London, I hopped hostels alot because I was there more than once and really just wanted the cheapest I could find each night. I likely stayed in about 5 different places. Mostly closest to Bayswater subway station.. there are alot of hostels up that way.

I loved the weather in London too. It would rain for about 2 minutes and then be sunny.. sun showers were beautiful! I Love London England, it's likely my favourite city in the world. I look forward to going back.
