#GOlobe30tting Day 6 – continuation

Day 6 – London

It was already past 4pm by the time we left the apartment, but I was so surprised we were able to cover so much of the London tourist spots on our first day! Iba talaga kapag may tour guide, ang saya-saya! <3 Places of interests close early, as early as 3:30pm, but the daylight is long during summer, just like in Paris. 10pm maliwanag pa sobra, so we were able to cover plenty of interesting spots that didn’t require entrance.



Yung iba, babalikan nalang, peechur-peechur muna. We’ll just go back for the ones we like in the days that follow.

Westminster Abbey

Westminster Abbey, formally titled the Collegiate Church of St Peter at Westminster, is a large, mainly Gothic abbey church in the City of Westminster, London. It is one of the most notable religious buildings in the United Kingdom and has been the traditional place of coronation and burial site for English and, later, British monarchs.

Between 1540 and 1556 the abbey had the status of a cathedral. Since 1560, however, the building is no longer an abbey nor a cathedral, having instead the status of a Church of England “Royal Peculiar”—a church responsible directly to the sovereign. The building itself is the original abbey church.

This one we will have to go back to tour the inside.


Goppets in London woohoo! <3

Big Ben
Big Ben is the nickname for the Great Bell of the clock at the north end of the Palace of Westminster in London, and often extended to refer to the clock and the clock tower. The tower is officially known as Elizabeth Tower, renamed to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of Elizabeth II in 2012; previously it was known simply as the Clock Tower.
The tower holds the second largest four-faced chiming clock in the world (after Minneapolis City Hall). The tower was completed in 1858 and had its 150th anniversary on 31 May 2009, during which celebratory events took place. The tower has become one of the most prominent symbols of the United Kingdom and is often in the establishing shot of films set in London.

The kids exclaimed that Big Ben was smaller than they thought it would be. :)


Kap has taken to selfies, and Ate joined in by taking photos of our selfie shots. Nakakatuwa tignan side by side.


The red phone booth is so picture perfect, but sooooo pungent. Unang pasok ko halos maduwal ako. BAKEEET???

House of Parliament
The Parliament of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, commonly known as the UK Parliament, the British Parliament or Parliament, is the supreme legislative body in the United Kingdom, British Crown dependencies and British overseas territories.
It alone possesses legislative supremacy and thereby ultimate power over all other political bodies in the UK and its territories. Its head is the Sovereign of the United Kingdom (currently Queen Elizabeth II) and its seat is the Palace of Westminster in the City of Westminster, located in Greater London.
Parliament is open to all UK and overseas visitors to attend debates, watch committee hearings or take a tour inside one of the world’s most iconic buildings. Adult Audio Tour – £18.50 per person available Mondays thru Saturdays only.


Trafalgar Square
Trafalgar Square  is a public square in the City of Westminster, Central London, built around the area formerly known as Charing Cross. Its name commemorates the Battle of Trafalgar, a British naval victory in the Napoleonic Wars with France and Spain that took place on 21 October 1805 off the coast of Cape Trafalgar, Spain.

The weather in London is much cooler and crisper than in Paris. Days & nights can get as cold as 16 degrees c so we never leave home without protection from the cold.


Good thing we packed jackets. We were contemplating on whether to bring or not since it was summertime in Europe. Eh ang sarap naman pala ng summer nila, malamig! <3

London Eye

The London Eye is a giant Ferris wheel on the South Bank of the River Thames in London. Since mid-January 2015, it has been known as the Coca-Cola London Eye, following an agreement signed in September 2014.

The structure is 443 feet (135 m) tall and the wheel has a diameter of 394 feet (120 m). When erected in 1999 it was the world’s tallest Ferris wheel. Supported by an A-frame on one side only, unlike the taller Nanchang and Singapore wheels, the Eye is described by its operators as “the world’s tallest cantilevered observation wheel.


Wakanga! Malayo ang tanaw ng binata ko. Missing someone?? ;)


I feel for him though, I can’t imagine being apart from my one true love either.

While walking around, so many other beautiful things caught our eye. What a blessing it is indeed to have been able to go on a European vacation with my loves. <3 Thank you Lord.





Ended our long day with dinner at Chinatown. Perfect ending to Kap’s tiring day of taking care of us me the whole day. <3


Grateful that my uncle was able to take us around on our first day & taught us how to use the tube..


We are soon becoming experts on public transpo, lol.


In chinatown, Ate googled & got a nice rating on Cafe TPT. Good job on yummy & affordable meals, Sweetheart! \m/


A duck rice meal costs 6.50 pounds. Around 500 php. Swakto sa budget, Kap is happy!


Driving on the right side proves challenging for Kap. By next week pagbalik namin malamang sanay na sya. :) Thank you Honey for driving us around. :-*

Tomorrow, Wimbledon for the boys. And shopping for the girls hehe. Take your time lang ok Kap? Enjoy the tennis tourney, TAKE YOUR TIME! ;P
