I really didn't have any plabns for today except to sleep late for a change. That lasted until 9.45 haha. Back home I can never go to bed early and I never want to get up. That goes to show you how much I do each day I guess haha.
When I finally decided to make a day out of today, I opened up an attraction map for ideas that I got here at the hostel (these are very useful... it's almost like you don't need a guidebook). I saw Temple Church on there and remembered I had wanted to visit there when I was back home planning. Also, I had missed out on St. Paul's Cathedral until today as well.
St. Paul's and the Globe would have gotten put on hold had the ticket sellers for Romeo and Juliet accepted my offer of 7 pounds rather than the 15 they were charging at the Temple Hall. It was literally the LAST minute before showetime too and they still had tickets to sell! Wouldn't you think that 7 pounds is better than 0 pounds and an empty seat?? Oh well, I only wanted to go $15 worth, not $30. Perhaps if I was back home $30 isn't bad at all for a play, but here it's not in my budget. Plus, a dollar saved is a dollar earned right?
(The attractions from today were great, but the photos do most of the explaining haha).
So I am back at the hostel for what will be an early night hopefully.
I will be glad to be back in the EURO zone for the rest of my trip even though I think the price of the pound dropped about 10 or so cents recently. Well, the Swiss Franc and Czech currency aren't Euro, but they are weaker than the dollar (Even though Switzerland is expensive I hear). Plus, no more paying for rail once I am out of the UK. I'll feel less restricted haha. Like to day I might have gone to Brighton or Canterbury, but I didn't want to get off the return ticket price haha.
Oh yeah, thanks to everyone who keeps up here on the blog. If you haven't already, please request to be my friend on here or leave a message/comment so I know you are out there :)
