With no feet left we kept going on! On this day we should go back home to Holland but before that i would like to see some things i had planned to see!! We stayed in the neighbourhood of Hyde Park so the most logical thing to see was Buckingham Palace. We had to take the subway line to Glouchester Road, than changed line to Green park. From that point it would not be a very long walk, but when i look at the map now, i see that we have walked towards the wrong direction. Finally we saw the Buckingham palace, and the queen Victoria Memorial. It was quit busy in the front of the castle. Even a lot of policeman. When we were at home we heard that Prince Charles had his birthday. When we walked along constitution hill to the Wellington Arch, i saw a real nice stopping sign.
After the shock we went further on to Kensington Palace. Of course by walking. We took ofcourse the wrong way. We took the Kensington church street, On the corner you can see the St Mary Abbots church. We went too far so we walked back and took the passage along the york house pl. Than you will see the palace. (this is the kensington palace gdns. Palace Green. You can not see much of this palace. It is private. It is not allowed to take pictures. (i saw the sign too late). Because of all the walking that we have done, you get hungry. And YES a store where we saw people eat!! This is the Whole Food store. They serve and sell food from fair trade! So this is a good place to be! We had fresh smoothies, they were delicious!! They serve various foods, so there is enough choise but do not eat spagetti bolognese, it is more porridge. Overcoocked or because of the microwave! Our time was up, we had to go back to the hotel to pick up our suitcase. We will certainly come back!
