My folks' first time in London
My sister and I gave our parent a trip to London for their birthdays last year in November. In May they have finaly made it over here.
My sister and her boyfriend came along...
We, went to the London Eye, walked along the river and stoped for a few pints in Shakespear's pub the Anchor.
In the evening we went to Barbican for a synphoney orchestra, which was very enjoyable thigh everyone was quite worn out from walking around so much.
The next day it was proper London weather. A bit sunny and then raining and a bit sunny and again some rain.
We decided to go to Greenwich onthe boat, which ened up being a good choice as we had good weather all the way there and once we go to the market in Greenwich it started to rain.
We ended up in some old pub on the other side of the river between Canary Warf and Greenwih. It was a great day.
On the next day we just went around town, looking at variuos places and ended up taking a black cab home, I just wanted my parents to take one as they rarely take a cab and I just love them.
Kate and I and the rest helped too to make a proper roast diner.
We ate and ate and drank and talked and drank some more ... a lovely evening.
On the last day it rained again and we walked around hide park an green park till we had to go home for them to pick up their stuff and fly back home.
All in all and inspite of the not so great weather it was a lovely weekend and everyone enjoyed it.
