As beautiful as Paris was, it was surprisingly easy to leave, and we began to look forward to the rest of our holiday in London. As we planned out some must-sees for London on the train, we told ourselves that we would take it a little easier – no more walking for 16 hours a day.
For the first couple of days back in London, we kept that promise.
Saturday (April 8th) we slept in, lazed around, and took a hop-on-hop-off bus tour of London. Our tour guide was funny and informative and soon caught on to the fact that we were the only ones listening to him. It was a great way to see large parts of the city while my feet started to think about forgiving me.
The following day (Sunday April 9th) Jeff’s uncle took us for a drive. He wanted to show us where he plays hockey, at Alexandra Palace, which is also one of the highest points in the city – with great views.
Our drive also took us through Hampstead and St. John’s Wood, dahling, and finished up by driving around Regent’s Park including a peek at the zoo. While we were in the car it began to rain quite heavily and continued for the rest of the day. We decided the only thing to do was to go back to Cockfosters and have a lazy Sunday with Jeff’s relatives.
