London City

Ivan, Lil Dave and I woke up at 8:30 am on June 4, 2010.  We checked out of the Best Western Hotel.

We jumped on the shuttle bus going to the airport at 9:30 am.  We would be flying from Dublin, Ireland to London, England today.  We arrived at the airport at 9:55 am.

We checked our luggage in and then went through Security.  We got some breakfast. 

We boarded the plane.  There was a problem with one of the bags not being accounted for, so there was a delay.  We were supposed to leave at 11:25 am, but actually left at 12:50 pm.  The time went by pretty fast.  We watched Little Britain on the laptop.

We arrived at 1:55 pm in London.  We got the train.  We missed the train by a few minutes, so we took one at 2:53 pm to London Bridge.  It was a slow train that took 50 minutes.  It was fine though.  Ivan used the internet while I finished a blog post.

We were now in New Providence Wharf.  We checked in to the Radisson Edwardian Hotel.  The room is well decorated and big.

We took the Thames Clipper boat to the city.  It was a nice warm day – perfect for the boat ride on the River Thames.  We saw the HMS Belfast and Tower Bridge. 


Tower Bridge is definitely the best bridge I’ve ever seen. 

We had dinner at Masala Zone.  Ivan and I each got a glass of rosé called Pink Elephant.  It tasted really good.  Ivan got the chicken grand thali while I got the prawn grand thali.  Lil Dave got a chicken & banana curry with a banana naan bread.  The food was fantastic as usual.

We walked to the movie theatre.  Lil Dave went to see Space Chimps 2. 


Ivan and I went to see Sex and the City 2.  The movie was funny during the first part then it got more serious.  It’s different now since most of the girls are married and they don’t dish about sex and men as much.  It was a good movie though.

  1. I love Tower Bridge! It’s was my third visit to England. My boyfriend is from Essex. So, it’s great to visit his family.
