London November 2019 Part 3

It’s already 2020 and I still haven’t been able to finish my London blog series. We’re already scheduled to go back there next week. =)) I skipped another week of blogging (yet again) but I’m back! I mentioned that this is gonna be a 4 part series but I realized that our day 4 was so short I won’t have to post a different blog for that. So here goes day 3 and 4 of our London trip last November 🙂

Day 3 in London started out cloudy as we looked for Big Ben’s little brother. Little Ben is located at Westminister at the intersection of Vauxhall Bridge Road and Victoria street. It was a nice clock meant to have touristy photos with. 😀

A lot of direction debates and a few walks ahead led us to the Westminister Cathedral. By this time, rain was pouring down hard and we welcomed the roof over our heads. The Westminister Cathedral is of a Catholic denomination which has a lot of chapels inside. I can’t help but think how eerie everything was since it’s really gloomy outside. It must be because the ceiling is high up and pitch black. A guide in a red robe greeted us and I thought he was a priest and mistakenly called him father #facepalm. Also saw a donation machine were you can swipe cards which is awesome because even churches are going cashless.

After the cathedral, we decided to skip the Westminister Abbey and head towards the Queen’s residence, Buckingham Palace. We skipped the changing of the guards in the morning because we were too lazy to wake up early. Victoria Memorial was also under construction during that time.

After the palace, we crossed to Green Park (which was already brown) and did our photo shoot. LOL.

Sunset was fast approaching so we then traveled to the London Eye to capture it with lights. We took photos of the Big Ben still and obligatory photos with the old phone booth to cap off Day 3.

Day 4 meant going back to Malmesbury and before leaving London, I told my husband that we should visit Jollibee! Jollibee is a local fast food chain from the Philippines and right now, the only branch is at Earl’s Court. Chickenjoy and Jolly Spaghetti craving satisfied!

And that’s it! That’s the end of my 4-part-turned-3-part London blog series. We will see London again next week! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend ahead. 🙂
