The London Chronicles: Day 2

Previously on The London Chronicles: Chillaxin' after a long flight, hanging out with the kids and had authentic London fish and chips...
 
Today we're getting the gist and being shown the ropes around the towns and cities of London, just in case one day we are going solo without my bro and sis-in-laws. We decided to take the train to get to our destinations, and on the way, random pictures alert!





I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream~

Walking down the treacherous road to our quest...





Missing doggy alert, aaawwww~




Le Stanmore Station













Of course, to save on money buying tickets here and there, we got ourselves some Oyster Cards. Almost like those cards you buy in Singapore or Taiwan


We arrived at the Embankment after transiting from Baker Street station, and from there, I took a whole lotta hunkabaloo pics, so I'm just gonna show you some of the main stuff we took:



Embankment Station

Overhead bridge to reach Embankment Pier






A graveyard/sacrifice/offering spot for skateboarders

Boat rides for River Thames


First street performer we caught

Awesome London buildings across the river

Carousel rides!


More street performers

Some monument thingy



Shenanigans with the living statue


More living statues/street performers

From here, I bought my very first London souvenir to indulge my latest new hobby: collecting fridge magnets

It's only fitting to buy the famous catchphrase of London XD
