At saturday 22 nov we went to London by plain from Schiphol Amsterdam to Stansted airport. We had a little delay. Then we took the bus to the centre. Our bus had a stop at Marble Arch, and we went to our apartment (one stop at the subway) and checked in at 13.00. Our room was ready so that was nice.
After freshing up we immediatly went to the lovely Portobello road market at Notting Hill. First we ate sandwiches at EAT. on Notting Hill gate. The market was crowded but lovely. After that we went by tube to shepherd's bush to shop in the brand new shopping centre Westfield!!! It was a great shopping Mall with lots of nice shops!!! At Holland Park avenue we ate thai food (buffet)at a little restaurant for a small price, it was quit good actually!
We went to our apartment to rest a little and then by subway to the Tottenham court road to walk through SOHO, Chinatown, Leicester square to trafalgar square where we had a stop in a great pub!! Almost all pubs in London are great by the way (lol)
After that we walked to Victoria Embankment for a night view on the Thames and the eye. After seeing the Big Ben and houses of Parliaments we finally went to our apartment to have a good night sleep because in the next few days we will be pretty tired.
