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.

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!

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.
