My first stop in my European adventure.
01.07.2013 - 05.07.2013
After a lot of research I have successively narrowed down all the places I would like to visit in the world to three continents Europe, Asia and Oceania. I have looked for the best deals, flight wise and developed a trip plan that I am ecstatic for!
My trip begins on July first, when I leave Pearson airport at 10:00 p.m. on flight 674 with Air transit. The flight cost me roughly $782.00 Canadian. The flight took about seven hours (5,744km). But arriving in England made it clear to me that the long flight was worth the wait. I got to London at 10:00 p.m. (there is a 5 hour time difference). So my first instinct was to find a hotel to get comfortable in for the night and begin my sightseeing the next day. Fortunately there was a 4 star Hilton hotel that was close to the airport, it was one of the nicest hotels I have ever been to! I had an amazing night’s sleep and was more than ready to explore all that England had to offer.
I definitely wanted to take my time and enjoy myself opposed to rushing my stay, so I decided that I would stay in England until July 5th. For my first couple of days I chose to go see the most well-known sites. Such as Big Ben which was gorgeous and an amazing piece of architecture. I had to go on the London eye as well!!! The view was spectacular, you literally see majority of London and it is one of those experiences that you never forget. The last main site that I was looking forward to was the natural history museum because I have heard such amazing thing and I have always wanted to see the remains of the dinosaurs. And of course I had to go to and have dinner at a fish and chips restaurant, it completed the experience. The remainder of the time I had after I got too see everything all that I had planned on seeing was spent relaxing and just enjoying the culture that surrounded me, the English accents were a definite bonus too, I almost perfected my impersonation. The best things that I encountered in London was the art the surrounded everything, whether it was the buildings or the people that lived there, I now understand why majority of my friends have an obsession with england.
