Lost in thoughts

It’s a crying shame the way how people are treated.’My mom told me:’Poverty dehumanize people‘ .It’s sad, but true and this is why we need to struggle and to appreciate every little thing.I don’t really know how things are working home but I can imagine.You’re just looking for your own purpose,aren’t you?What’s more important: to look pretty or to put a smile on someone’s face?A smile is more pretious than a pair of shoes.Most of the people from Romania have the habit to ruin your day.Here, abroad is completely different.When someone see you that you’re not in a good mood, he is trying his best to give you a lift.Also, when I lost the flight I thought that was the  baddest day of my life.Someone saw  that I was down in the mouth, so she cheered me up .I sometimes wonder why I had to face so many unfair things in life. Yet the means of fulfilling human wants are unlimited but there are other important values in life:HEALTH.

Many people are declared insane because of the stress.Nowadays are though times, when cancer is making the law in what diseases are concerned. Also, my grandmother died because of it.I must, we all must see the glass as half full.If I had caught the flight I wouldn’t have met amazing situations and people.I had recently the pleasure to meet a wonderful woman who is suffering from cancer.She is full of life and she has so many activities.For instance, she planned to organise a Christmas fair in order to raise funds for charity. It’s admirable that she still has power to enjoy life and to help others in need.

A different slant of London

On waking, feeling relaxed I thought about studying.Then, Margie tempted me by saying:’Go and enjoy the sunshine in London,not here.It looks good this morning’.By 1 pm the weather had changed for the worst: cold, extremely cold, windy and English rain.Not everything went the way I planned because I forgot to touch in my Oyster card and when I realised, the train had gone.So I had to wait in the cold weather for more 30 minutes.I went to Waterloo East because I wanted to go to London Eye, but then I met an amazing group of free runners. I was talking on the phone to my friend, asking for advice while a group of teenagers teased me.I had to hang up because they were recording a video with me.I felt extremely dizzy because they were gathering around me and nobody came to rescue me.

I also thought that this would be a fortunate opportunity to see London life differently. Then I asked them if I can join them.After walking along for 5 minutes, I discovered that there was a boy from Romania.It’s odd to me that when I meet Romanian abroad I find myself  speaking to them in english.After that I had the bright idea to ask him from which city he came from and coincidently it’s the same as me.I was astonished by Read more

Step by step inquiries

We travelled on the DLR to Greenwich.Walked through the old town and came to the dock to see the Cutty Sark, which is a Tea Clipper boat of mid 1800 centuries .The fastest boat from China to England.We declined the boat trip because of the extreme foggy weather.We took the DLR again to Bank, which is in the City of London.I was aware of the business life of the working in London.I watched the elegance of the office workers, carrying a coffee, checking their smartphones or reading newspaper.Everyone appeared well-dressed, busy and in a rush.That hustle made us drowsy so we stopped to have a drink.We were in a desperate need of coffee and right on the corner it was Costa.It was a very enjoyable atmosphere and my cappuccino tasted more than perfect.The coffee was the right thing for that moment because it refulled our energy.

The next attraction was St.Paul Cathedral, where is the seat of the bishop of London.Prince Charles,Prince of Wales got married to Lady Diana Frances Spencer there.

Royal day

The damp weather and the late clock alarm forced me to take a break from London.I went to visit Eltham Palace, which is a royal residence from 14th to the 16th century.The palace is well-known for the Art-Deco design style and it was given as a gift.Many movies have been filmed there, due to its amazing big rooms.The palace is surrounded by a beautiful garden.Anyway, if you want to see Eltham Palace, you will have to buy a ticket, which is £10.20.

After that, I paid a visit to Margie’s relatives and then to Bromley South. My friend went back home, but I continued the adventure by stopping by to feed my appetite for shopping.

Camden Town & Portabello Road

I took into consideration your advice and I went to see Camden Town.If you want to go, Saturday and Sunday are the best days to go.I must have to say that I was suprised by its cultural diversity.Camden Town is known for its markets.You can find everything at a good price, but not always good quality.My eyes and my tummy were seduced by a colourful smell of food.I was following that smell and I discovered a small street with many varities of food  from Asia, Europe, etc.It’s improper to say that there were restaurants because people were standing up to eat.I think that this is also a way to consider this place as special.I wasn’t very thunderstruck of Camden Town but has something unsual, which deserves a short visit.I felt there a huge freedom to express your personal feelings without being judged.

Why I didn’t buy it?It’s such a shame…

Museums Day

It’s not difficult at all to guess why the post is called this.I mean the title tells it’s own tale.The 19th of October:cloudy & a cultural day.Before this, I wanted very much to see the changing of guards, which is daily at 11 am.

SeQuel

Let’s get back to our business.What I  forgot to tell you?Oh yeah…I saw Jessie J during my walk on the Embankment.Initially, I didn’t have a clue who was that important person.Everyone was starring at her,she was somehow full of herself and there were also some papparazi.She was wearing sunglasses, but when she took them off I had a deja vu or smth like this.When I was reading the newspaper in the train I saw an article about Jessie J’s arrival in London.Then, I’ve found what’s o’clock and I was razzle dazzle.

M.Tussauds & Musical

You should appreciate that right after no more and no less 10 hours of walking in London I still keep doing my job:posting.It was an unforgettable day.I can’t find the right words to describe it and if you keep reading you will find out why. My ticket for Madame Tussauds available beginning with 9:30 am so I had to be there within my half hour time slot on the day that I selected.Everything was fine and I was proud that I was on time and I didn’t have to queue .It was written on the online booking that I must bring  my payment card, but I forgot with which card I paid so I took the wrong one.The assistant was very nice and indulgent to me, maybe also because of my pleasant presence.

In the first room, I was welcomed by many celebrities who were at a party.Brangelina, Julia Roberts(one of my fav), Cheryl Cole, Bollywood actors(Shah Rukh Khan), LeonardoDiCaprio, etc.In the next room, I saw the King of Pop, Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Christina Aguilera(very short), ABBA and last but not the least, Justin Bieber. Another catchy thing was the ‘Scream House’, which really gave me willies.It was dark and creepy people surrounded you and started to yell or to touch you.I’ve just thought of that song of Pussycat Dolls ‘Scream’, because I was screaming on the top of my lungs.I have also seen the process of making wax figures.Right after that I put my 3D glasses, in order to watch a movie about superheros(Hulk, Batman, Superman) that were trying to save London.I was also introduced into the old atmosphere of London by walking in an old cab.

Welcome!

 Put a ring on it!

Look at me,darling!

Who should I choose?Who deserves my love?

Don’t worry Obama!We will get this done

He is from my country!

I am crazy and I know it!

I had to meet my friend in the afternoon because she bought ticket for the musical:’Dreamboats and Petticoats.The meeting place was at Charring Cross and then we walked nearby(The Embankment). It was the first time when I had the opportunity to see a live musical. I don’t know if you believe me, but I was almost bursting into tears.I had some tears pouring down my face, due to that beautiful real dream of being there.Dreamboats and Petticoats is a jukebox musical based on popular songs from the fifties and early sixties. I had a jolly time and I could say that it was one of the best day of my life.I’m not able to choose which day in London was the most captivating, because each one had something special.

Tickled PINK!

I have more photos, but probably I will upload them on Facebook or in the next post.Thank you for understanding!

17 th of October

I’m getting accustomed to the programme:wake up early in the morning, have a fast breakfast, go by car, by train and then get back into the London’s jungle.I was really organised this time because I highlighted on the map which way I should follow and the attractions.Of course that I couldn’t respect the whole established schedule, but at least I am glad that I’ve seen most all of them.I have now to check my agenda with what I visited yesterday, because I have too many things in my head.I stopped at Victoria and the first thing on my list was Buckingham Palace.I had to get around it and the issue was that I was wearing some new shoes, which weren’t comfortable.While I was searching for B.P, I headed to Hyde Park and Marble Arch where I also met a nice girl from Argentina.She asked me to take some photos of her and then I told her that I want my reward (to act like my personal photographer for a couple of minutes).Furthermore, I ambled in my favourite park, St.James Park together with swans, ducks, squirrels, etc. It was really pleasurable and I would love to get back there soon.

16 th Oct:Oh-xford Day

First day:Oxford street

I lost sight of writing on blog and I should be ashamed but it’s all about the time element.I woke up early( at 7:00 am) on Tuesday and getting prepared for a new adventure: Oxford street.It was actually the second time in London because I went also  on Monday with my friend to get familiar with this jammed city.My mom’s friend, Margie wanted to make certain that I won’t get lost and I can easy find the way back home, which later was far from her dreams.

Let’s start from the beginning.My friend lives in zone 5, so I have to go by train in order to arrive at Victoria Station or wherever I want to.Before all the times when I have to get in the train, I ask several people if I’m going in the right way or either not.It doesn’t matter for my wallet if I take the wrong train or bus because I made a great deal with the Oyster Card.I advise you to get one if you are in London because you save money.I got one for 7 days and I can go by whichever way of transport just for 50 pounds.It may sound expensive but actually it isn’t.

You know how dizzy I am so when I arrived on Oxford Street I didn’t know from where to start.What does Oh-xford Street mean to me? Oh-xford Street…?Richness, traffic jam, well-dressed women, businessmen with brand-new suits and shops with short sales.My mom wasn’t very proud hearing that I went to ‘visit’ shops shortly after I arrived, but it was a worthy experience.My wallet cried out in pain, but at least I had bought nice & special stuffs.I had enough of Oxford and Regent Street(even that it wasn’t on my busy schedule) because I was so dizzy that it but I was for 2 or 3 times in some shops or places.I was really exhausted but I wanted to shop till I dropso I did like this.I must have to say that I was somehow disappointed of Topshop, because I couldn’t find anything special and also with a good price.

Purple rain

If you were worried about how I arrived in G.B I would say that it was fine, even if I had some adventures.I will tell you more about it later.Yeah I know it’s already Wednesday, but above all things it was weekend.I went to Aarhus with some friends because they know that there is worthy nightlife.

Firstly, we went to campus, where was a party.It was supposed to be a fabulous party as it was written on the ticket but  it turned out to be a messy one and a lot of strangers.Shortly afterwards, we decided to go downtown to a club.I was really excited to go there.When we had go inside,I remembered that I forgot my documents in the car, which was parked in the campus.Completely out of the blue,things took a turn for the worse.
