Last Monday I was in London. My boyfriend and I decided to go away for a day. Yes… A day, we were in London for just one day. We went with the Stena Line Boat (It’s like a mini-cruise) from Holland to England, Harwich. We left with the boat in the evening, which meant we had to sleep on the boat. We slept in a bunk-bed (verrrrrry romantic). Actually, I can’t really say that we slept. The bed was horrible, I think we slept for 3 to 4 hours, maybe 5. All I know is that I was super tired when I woke up.
From Harwich we took the train to London. It took 2 hours to get there. We used a locker for our baggage and went into London!
London is an amazing city. It’s hectic, busy, chaotic but so much fun — once you know your way (in the underground), and now how to get somewhere. It took us a lot of time to figure out the subway system. We had a map with us, but I’m not good with maps, and it didn’t really help much in the end. We never knew whether to go right or left.
British people (or should I say London-people?) are very, very friendly! They were always willing to help us out. Show us which way to go and show it on the map. Compared to Dutch people (don’t mean to offend some of my readers) they are so friendly. But sadly, one day is too short for London. We didn’t see everything we wanted and even had to skip a few things. But it was all worth it!
