Hello, my name is Sasha and I am writing from London!
I arrived in London on the 10th of January with Ava, and my sister Alannah. From the minute we stepped off the plane, the pace we were used to, changed. So many people were rushing around, it was quite disorientating. We got a taxi from the airport to avoid the trains for our first day at least! After arriving at the hotel, we went for breakfast, which turned out to be an Irish restaurant, how stereotypical!
For the first few days we tried to visit as many sites as we could. Including Buckingham Palace,
Trafalgar Square, The West End, The Tower of London and The London Dungeons.
We spent everyday touring London and eating in so many different places like Ottolenghi in Spitalfields.
Each day we took turns directing as it takes a lot of getting used to the different trains.
I really found this good to get me comfortable with the system. Citymapper will be your best friend, truly.
We had hoped to have an apartment but this fell through the week we arrived.
More to come on work in my next blog!
