Thursday October 8th, 2009 Today we Samantha, Ari, and I landed in London at midnite and caught the bus into town. From there we caught a taxi to our hostel and ends up getting there at around 2 am. I'm the morning. We woke up and ate some breakfast them headed out to catch a walking tour of the city. On the tour we saw a lot of the main things like picadilly square, Buckingham palace, and the house of Parlimemt. It was a lot of fun and it was surprisingly a nice day for London. After the tour we went to go see the London Eye and afterwards we went to a pub across from big ben. After the pub we made another trip to trafalgar square and then headed back to our hostel because we were exhausted.

Friday, October 9th, 2009 On Friday we decided to go see Wimbledon stadium where we got a walking your which was really awesome because we were able to see center court and afterwards we went through a history museum. After Wimbledon we decided to try and find the famous bridge in London which we assumed would be called " the London bridge" we took the underground to the correct stop but when we found the bridge it jut turned out to be a regular bridge bit from that bridge we were able to see the famous bridge but it was raining so we decided to head back to the hostel for the day.

Saturday, October 10th, 2009 When we woke up we decided to head off and try to find the famed abbey road from the beatles. It was one of the longer trips we had on the tram to northern London. After getting to abbey road we took a few pictures and then went to Lords also known as the home of cricket! (not so much fun) after leaving Lords. After this went into tje picadilly area which had a lot of shoppimg and tourists. We wandered into the Soho area if town which had a lot of intetestimg shops. They also had a cheap pub where we grabbed a bite to eat. Afterwards we decided to go see the Tower bridge because it was such. Nice day again. We headed off into west London and we also were able to run into the London Tower where England held all there bad people from the old era. After leaving the tower we went back to the hostel to get ready for a ministry of sound concert. The concert was a lot of fun but on the bus ride back we ended up heading into east London instead if west. We ended up getting back to the hostel at about 4 am. Sunday,

October 11th, 2009 On Sunday Samantha and I decided to head off to go to the national gallery. This was my favorite place in London. They had so much art and my favorite were van goghs iris' and monets Japanese bridge. After leaving the national gallery we decided to go and find the harry potter bridge. This was on the oposite aide of the city in the northeast part. At re tube stop we got up and started walking and ended up stumbling into st pauls cathedral. This was really fun and it was so big. We went inside but we were not allowed to take any pictures butbi snuck a few in. Afer leaving the church we went to the harry potter bridge which is actually called the millennium bridge. It was a good ending for the day with a cool sunset. London has been by far my most favorite city in the world, I will definitely come back to spend more time here in the future.
