Jun 1, 2004 - Athens/London

Up this morning after sleeping in (and well) for the first time in weeks...especially uninterrupted by roommates. Got ready and went downstairs for my included breakfast. Now, I knew it was included only because I had talked to reception the night before and was told that I needed to stop by the front desk on my way to the restaurant for my breakfast voucher. However, when I arrived for my voucher they claimed they knew nothing about it. So, not being all that hungry, I went back upstairs and packed the rest of my stuff. On my way back to...

Jun 1, 2004 - First day in London

First day in London. Darryl and I arrive at London Heathrow airport at about 7:30 in the morning GMT. We eventually make our way through customs and about an hour later to the Underground (subway) station. We then travelled to Hamersmith where our hostel was supposed to be. Unfortunetely the Hamersmith Lodge was renamed the Primiere West Hotel, and no one around town knew what we were talking about when we asked where the lodge was. Plus we thought it was a hostel, but thanks to our English friend Mark it was much better place to stay for...

May 30, 2004 - Welcome to Ange's world

Welcome to the travel diary website - I knew it couldn't be that hard. Had to pay for the space, but was going to have to pay hotmail to send photos anyway so this way is much better. Will keep in touch and advise when updates have been made. Love Ange xx

May 30, 2004 - London to Aberdeen

We landed in London and traveled easily through passport control and moved on to wait for our flight to Aberdeen. But while in the airport we had two brushes with stardome. First, while waiting in line at passport control, we found ourselves standing right next to Rob Lowe. Paul didn't believe me at first when I pointed him out. He said he was too short to be him. But on closer look, we found I was right. We both agreed he was much better looking in real life :) Then, as we entered the domestic terminal, we were practically run over by...

May 28, 2004 - Winchelsea Beach to Bethnal Green

Leaving Winchelsea Beach around 5.00 pm, I headed back towards London and via the Dartford Tunnel to Bethnal Green where I was going to be staying with my friends, Jan and Barry Ireland who are from NZ but in London where she is teaching. We had a look at the local area in which they live, filled with Asian population, lots of Indian sari shops etc.

May 27, 2004 - To London

We were definitely ready to head home from Rhodes. Its an interesting island, but a week is more than enough time to spend. Perhaps the place we stayed at was a factor as well. I just do not understand why resorts feel compelled to start loud 70's music at 8 am and keep it going continuously until 2 am. We cannot feel relaxed - even though its not bad music. I guess most people feel uncomfortable with just their own thoughts to amuse. Our 4 hour flight to London (after connecting in Athens) takes you over Italy, the Adriatic, the Alps and...

May 24, 2004 - Kirksanton to London

We left Kirksanton early and were trying to find some factory shops that Lorraine had heard about. A neighbour told us we should go to Boundary Mills so we set off there, it was near to a place called Colne and was a few factory shops in one building. I managed to buy some shoes, but apart from that it was a waste of time. We then headed to another place we heard of, Bicester, located close to Oxford. This time the factory shops were all label ones, Gucci, etc. so not in our price range. We finally headed to London and I dropped Lorraine...

May 21, 2004 - London, England to Orlando, Florida, USA

Left London for an amazing adventure. TS - Only just back from brother´s wedding in Portugal, so knackered and had little time to think about the trip. V.exciting though. Up till 1am the night before finishing jobs! Funniest thing was seeing Jane carrying her rucksack in heels......

May 21, 2004 - Jet lagged CITY!

Holy Jet lag! Well, I came in some time yesterday to busy London. The plane was delayed at LAX due to mechanical problems (Thanks for the honesty American Airlines, NOT). But we made it. Couldn't sleep on the plane and I couldn't sleep last night. What a busy city it is! I wasn't the only one that was up last night. It seems all of London was with me. I took the tube to get to St. Christopher's where I will be staying. I can't keep up with any news and such so if something happens, someone email me, ok? :) Thanks, Ciao, Love

May 14, 2004 - Leaving London for the last time

There are perhaps few feelings in the world comparable to that of imminently returning home after a long hiatus. Rocky and Martin, for the last week or so have been unable to think of much else except being home again; seeing family, friends, and dogs once more. For this reason, neither one thought to bring out the camera and take some "leaving London" shots. We figured there would be plenty to take once we got home...

World Trip 03/04

May 13, 2004 - Our "Royal" day

For our last day in London area, George and Dorothy took us to Windsor to visit the famous castle where the Queen typically spends her weekends (she was heading there when we saw her on our first day). At 11 am, the changing of the guard ceremony takes place - this time with the Irish Guard fife and drum band marching up the street and into the castle. We followed them in and spent the rest of the morning and early afternoon visiting the castle. We spent a fair bit of time in St. George's Chapel. It was built around the same time as King's...

May 9, 2004 - Alan & Nathan Take Us Around London

We got up early on Sunday and took the train into London for the 11:30 Eurcharist service at St. Paul's Cathedral (London is a city after all). We sat in the front row under the main dome, designed by Christopher Wren. The acoustics are strange - it is so big that all the music and speaking is done at half speed in order to avoid the echo in the huge space. The choir was sublime - especially the boys choir (no sopranos or altos need apply). After the service and feeling smug about saving ourselves 6£ per person on the entrance fee (less of...
