Brighton, England

When we arrived at Brighton train station, we got another taxi to our hotel. Carrying 66kg of luggage plus hand luggage is not fun! When we got to the from door of the Hilton, we had to squeeze through the revolving door of the hotel with our backpacks on our back, our Padi bags on our front, and a dive bag in our hand. It was a tough squeeze! The bell boy took our bags straight away for us! What service at the Hilton hotel!!

The Hilton Hotel , Brighton

We relaxed in our room at the Hilton, watching tv, enjoying the comfy bed, and the nice, clean bathroom. Then we ventured down to Brighton Beach. Not much of a beach, since there’s no sand, just pebbles. The weather was abit gloomy aswell :(

The Remainder of London

Look what we found at Kings Cross Station!

Day 3 consisted of a Monopoly Tour to all the places on the Monopoly board. It was a fairly big task, and we got our monies worth using the Underground Day Pass for 6.60GBP each. While we were at Pall Mall we visited the Stephen Wiltshire Gallery. Stephen is a very talented artist with an exceptional memory. He has flown over London in 20 minutes and then can draw the entire skyline from memory, remembering details such as the number of floors in the buildings. It was amazing!  We did some shopping while we were down Oxford St. First stop was Primark. OMG this place was crazy busy and everything was so cheap. I bought a pair of flats for 6GBP, some stockings for 1.50GBP and Gaffa bought some Superman and TMNT socks for a few ponds. We went to all the other typical English stores like New Look, Zara, Top Shop, etc… Afternoon snacks consisted of 99p cheeseburger from Macca’s and some small sushi treats from Wasabi. For dinner we just ordered delivered Pizza from a local place near our hostel.

London - Day 2

Hello from the south of England! Hope you are all well and not missing us :P

Day 2 in London we did a lot of sightseeing, to take advantage of our London pass.

Gaffa practicing being a Guitar Hero

First stop was the Design Museum. It was quite small but there were some pretty cool exhibits. Reminded me of Art Express exhibit that they do in Sydney. Gaffa got carried away with the PRO guitar hero….

at the top of St. Paul's Cathedral

Next we went to St. Paul’s Cathedral. This was the first cathedral/church we visited and it was amazing! There was about 500+ stairs to the top viewing area, but it was well worth it. The architecture inside was just spectacular. We sat down and just looked up and stared….
