New years eve and day in London



So Yesterday  didn't quite go as planed. It was then when we were supposed to go to Buckingham Palace, London tower etc. but the women folk took their sweet time at Victoria's secret and other similar shops that we decided that we would not have time to go to any of our planed places so we skipped them and went to eat and shop for some groceries for the party.
   We then headed back to the apartment where me and my friend Leo made some delicious burgers and roast potatoes for the whole gang. The evening continued with more eating and drinking and lastly we went up to the rooftop to watch the Fireworks.

The Buckingham Palace 
The next day we woke up to FINALLY go to see Buckingham Palace, the Big Ben, the winter wonderland etc.
We walked around so much and had a GREAT time, with the little exception of China town where we went into a cafe and there was so many people hugging space so that we had to sit in a cluster.
"Our friends are soon here" was heard a lot. Honest to God I felt like I would loose it there.

The Buckingham Palace must be a lot better at 11 a.m. when they are doing the change of the guards, because when we were there it was already long in to the day and it didn't feel so special.
   The Big Ben on the other hand WAS worth going to. They even happened to be having a parade that we had time to catch a glimpse of.
   From there we went to London Eye and China town before eating and heading out to the Winter wonderland.

They were truly two successful days !

Cheers!
