London Adventure: Day 2 (Paris!)

We took a train under the Chunnel to Paris today! We were given a map and a couple Metro (subway) tickets and let loose in the city! I was almost pick pocketed immediately upon arrival and an old French lady slapped me on the wrist (literally). Katie, on the other hand, was approached by more than one French person needing directions. Obviously she’s the leader in this outfit.

We (Katie) managed to navigate the metro system throughout the city and saw some cool sights in our short time there, and went on a river cruise.

I’m officially a thief, as I stole a bracelet from a peddler. Hey…. I didn’t ask him for it!

One thing we didn’t plan on was needing some French euros to pee. It’s like Urinetown over there (“You gotta pay to pee”)!

We are now back in London, having also learned how to navigate the tube (London subway) on the way back. We tried a new pub across the street and made fast friends but had to run away when they took “friendly” to another level.

We’re killin’ it over here!

London Adventure: Day 1

My BFF Katie and I both turned 40 this year, so we had to come up with a grand way to celebrate.  We decided we’d ring in the New Year in LONDON this year!

Day 1: We arrived at the hotel around noon, which is across from the Canadian Embassy (to quote Katie: “I feel safer knowing Canada is so close!”). Then we had Thai food for lunch and took a bus tour to see a few sights. We ended the day with dinner/drinks at Sherlock Holmes Pub, where we caused a ruckus trying to figure out the drink tab situation over here (almost shouting our secret tab number to the entire pub… whoops)!

Going to bed early because tomorrow we head to Paris for the day! Night!
