Almost there!

In november 2016 i won last minute tickets to an exclusive Metallica concert in the London House of Vans under Waterloo underground station. Last minute booked flight and hotel for a 3 day visit to London. It was an amazing weekend!    

Won the tickets at the Metallica fanclub website and was very lucky, because lots of people attended the contest. Only 850 were alowd in the venue.

We flew in early that day from Brussels airport Belgium which is only 1 hr drive from home. Only 45 minutes flight to London Heathrow. After 35 minutes we were at our hotel (IBIS) in the London Docks by London public transport. We went to Waterloo station and took a quick look at the venue.

few more minutes
There were already people in line so we decided to go for food. We had some amazing pizza at the Firestation restaurant. After Dinner we went to the London eye which we never saw up and close. Than back to the venue en waited in line for a good 3 hrs! (sorry Jas)

The venue (House of Vans) was amazing. The stage area was small for a massive band like Metallica and very unique see them play for only 850 fans. The concert was live streamed and lasted for a good 2 hrs. Best concert ever. After the concert we ended up in the hotel after a long day!

After a perfect night of sleep a quick breakfast and of to our favorite neighborhood Camden which is always fun. A few pints and some food at the Camden locks is always fun and relax. Next we took the undeground to the London Christmas winter wunder land. An big fair in Hyde park London. They even had a Bavarian style Market and lots of fun attractions. Stayed couple of hours and took the subway back to the hotel, had a quick beer and pizza and said goodnight. On sunday we took the underground back to Heathrow end boarded our flight back to Belgium!! Awsome weekend!
