Tourist Information

It's been nearly six months since I moved to London but I just haven't had time for a proper touristy day. I've done all the main things before, London Eye, Big Ben etc but when my friend, Ro, said she had a couple of Italian and Greek friends coming over and did I want to help show them around I jumped at the chance. Not literally, I don't jump much.

We started off at Buckingham Palace and we were most amused that one of the guy's reaction was 'is this it?' Soz Lizzie.

I, on the other hand, was loving it.

We carried on to Trafalgar Square, did some red bus spotting and then went for a quick walk around the National Portrait Gallery.

After all our sight-seeing we were suitably famished so we moseyed on down to Bubbledogs. Bubbledogs is a restaurant with only two things on the menu - champagne and hotdogs, a beautiful partnership I'm sure you'll agree. I enjoyed it that much I'm going to do a separate post about it this week so I can ramble on about it to a greater extent.

After all this fun (and champagne) I needed a lie down, so, I went home for a nap. Many hours later I made my way back to meet everyone for more merriment. We did a bit of tactical pre-drinking which of course led to drinking games. I can confirm that Fuzzy Duck becomes even more hilarious when the people you're playing with don't have English as their first language.

Our nightclub of choice for the night was Mahiki. Unfortunately, we were busy having too much fun to take loads of pictures but we did LOTS of dancing and I fell in love....with a drink called Blue Hawaiian. I think it might be the start of something special. However, I did do a bit of taste testing of everybody else's drinks...

And in the morning woke up with an almighty headache, the sign of a good night.
