Last weekend I went on an open top bus!
Usually the tickets for an open top bus tour in London are pretty pricey, but Simon’s parents had bought a pair at about 3pm on Friday and they are valid for a full 24 hours. They very kindly passed them on to us before they headed home to Suffolk, and Simon and I jumped on a bus tour from Tower Bridge on Saturday Morning.
The tour was so much better than we both expected and it really does make a difference to see everything from up high.
It was absolutely baking all weekend, so I spent most of it melting, complaining about melting and filling up my drinks with ice.
On Sunday we went to the V&A to see the ballgown exhibition and went to Hyde Park.
I also got a brand new oyster card as I lost (accidently threw away, oops) my old one and I’ve sneakily been using my mum’s in the mean time. I’ve managed to get myself a limited edition jubilee/Olympics version that will be sure to make me look like a tourist FOREVER.
But it does seem to have a flying cake on it for no apparent reason, so maybe I'll forgive it.
