Got up at 4:30am in Phuket, to leave the hotel at 5am, and catch my flight to Bangkok, had a few hours to kill there, before I left at around 12:30pm, for the 12 hour flight to London, arriving 6:30pm local time.  Got through customs ok, had to answer a few questions!  Found my bags, then had to work out how to catch the tube to picidilly circus!  Turned out to be pretty easy, the line from the airport went straight to Picidilly Circus!  I managed to find the backpackers pretty easy, checked in, and went for a stroll around.

London is freezing cold!!  Always have a jacket and scarf on while outside.  Met a few people so far, spent the first couple of days with an Aussie guy i met at the backpackers.  Met some kiwi guys aswell and spent a day with them.  Went out last night with two aussie guys, a kiwi girl who works at the backpackers and an American girl, not a huge night, just a few beers at some local pubs.

Didn't love the Picidilly backpackers, and have moved today to St. Christophers Inn at London Bridge.  Also talked the kiwi guys and the aussie guy to move here too.  It heaps better than the last one, it even got its own bar, club, hot tub and sauna on the roof, heaps more!

Ive managed to get a job already at a "Walkabout" which is an aussie themed pub.  Theres a few of them around, but the one i am starting at is in Islington.  They have live-in accommadation, so I will have cheap (£40/week) accomm with my own room!  They also dude food at the pub, so i will have cheap and free meals!  and a bit of extra money!  Start there with a trial on Sunday, then full-time from Wednesday!  Looking forward to that!
