London was an amazing place with so much to do in so little time. It was our first leg of our 2 week UK adventure which includes Cardiff, Manchester, Edinburgh and possibly Ireland if time permits. Marc and I spent every night in a pub, all different and met many different people from UK, Aus, USA and abroad! Good times were had. The London Eye took 2 hours to line up for, but has some amazing views. Big Ben was awesome, ... as was Highbury the home of football! I have some pretty cool photos inside Highbury and we completed the musem tour and visited the Arsenal shop on the last day it was ever open at Highbury, so that is something! Pretty stoked to have visited the old ground before it gets renovated into apartments and flats. Emirates Stadium which is just a stone throw from Highbury is a megaplex and really stands out as a new state of the art stadium hidden (well not really!) amongst the old housing. So many pints, tubes, looking at black taxis and red buses was had. We will be back in London friday week, to board our Bus to Frankfurt for the world cup!
