I just love IT Crowd, one of the best British sitcoms and I can quote nearly every single line with my sister.
Yay we are back
after missing our flights on Monday because of this stupid easybus!!
a small note here: never ever take the easybus which belongs to the easyjet company. The drivers from Gatwick to London were just rude and after many argues we got to go on a bus even though it says on the ticket that we have a reservation for a fixed time and we will be taken at that time. Uhm yes I don’t think that anybody got to go on their time because the buses were late and people with earlier times got on the bus you should have gotten into and so on. Then going back we waited for 40 min for that bus and came too late for boarding. Just great! Staying two days more in London was cheaper though then taking the next flight for 350 Pounds per Person. To save yourself time and hassle, just take the train! Too bad I did not check reviews of other people, complaints are plentiful about this terrible bus service.
Beside the hastle with easybus and our missed flight the mister and I had a lovely time in London and we definitely want to come back soon.
The architecture and history, the yummy restaurants and the super friendly people make London a must-visit.
flying over Austria
Arriving in London at Waterloo to see a beautiful sunset with the London Eye
beautiful architecture in Holborn

so many cute little fluffy squirrels
This pub is named John Snow. It knows nothing ;)
lovely view from the breakfast room, wish I could have this view everyday!
reminding me of Hogwarts
the criminal court of justice
Another Hogwarts ;)
shopping in Covent Garden
Pretty display at Fortnum & Mason
fancy ceiling in Harrods
I loved this sign!
Our hotel was in Holborn which is near Soho, our favourite area which we visited every single day. For shopping we liked Carnaby Street the most and food-wise you have to drop by Honest Burgers and Pizza Pilgrims. In Austria you can tip freely but here most of the restaurants charged 12,5% which was for us quite a lot but the really friendly and attentive service made up for it ;) I also really loved the atmosphere at Borough market, it felt like a more hip and trendy but also down-to-earth Naschmarkt.
I made lots of videos but I am still struggling on how to combine the different clips but I think it will be up soon, can’t be too hard!
A separate food post will be up asap and a polaroid post after I have the time of scanning them :)
