Not long now, I'm away to the big city tomorrow. Planning my trip has been a bit daunting, there are so many places to see, so much to do. I've made loads of notes, I only hope I can fit it all in. My walking boots are clean, all the mud scraped from them and polished, they are going to clock up a few miles walking round the capital.
I am travelling light, a rucksack and my cat face shoulder bag. I wont need any dressy clothes, just practical, warm, and comfortable clothes. A waterproof jacket, sweatshirts, wooly hat, gloves, scarf, and I've bought a pair of rugby trousers with a thermal lining and big pockets.
I've looked at the location of the hostel on the street map and I am delighted to see there is a Tesco at the end of the road, so that's my food taken care of then.
Here are some of the places I have on my list to visit.
Museum of Brands
South Bank Centre
Tower Bridge exhibition
National Portrait Gallery
Bermondsey Antique Market
Westminster Abbey Museum
Royal Festival Hall
Royal Albert Hall
Houses of Parliament
I might take in a show if I can find a cheap ticket by turning up an hour before the curtain rises. Hope they let me in if I am not looking very posh. I have decided not to go to the Cenotaph on Sunday, I really don't want to be squashed in with thousands of people. I'll make a few notes as I go along, if I don't I'll forget half of it. Me poor old brain can't cope with a massive influx of information, it needs a bit of help, ha ha. The hostel has computer access so I might pop back when you least expect me, otherwise I'll catch you on Friday. Toodle pip.
