Me on the ferry Olau Lines from Vlissingen to Sheerness dec 1990

Our (Wim and I) first trip to London together, we were married for 1 year back then. I went there ones before with my friend Tineke for a shopping day but sadly enough I didn´t make any photos then. I just fell in love with this amazing city. I talked so much about it that Wim became curious and wanted to see it too. So a year after that we booked a christmas shopping trip to London. We travelled by the night ferry of the Olau Line from Vlissingen(Netherlands) to Sheerness(Great Brittain) but today this line is not available anymore. We had a good yourney and enjoyed staying at the ship.

In London we had one day to explore the city because that night we had to go back to the ship for the way back.

I know, it´s way to short to explore London but we didn´t had much money at the time. Wim loved it too right away and we didn´t want to leave. So we agreed to go back again someday to explore it some more. And we did, this year (sept 2011) would be my 10th time to go to London. Actually I had been there last year for the 10th time if it wasn´t for the volcanic eruption in Iceland why they had to cancel my flights. Bummer!!

Anyway, we saw what anyone want to see for the first time London and that was: Buckingham Palace, Horse guards, Trafalgar square, Piccadilly Circus, Leicester square, shopping on Regent street and Oxford street where we eat at the Pizzahut near Marble Arch and then it was already time to go to the pick up spot at Park Lane. Ofcourse we stopped now and then for a drink etc at those incredible beautiful pubs LOL and had a great time!

So till we meet again, IT´S LONDON BABY LONDON!!!!
