Had breakfast at our hostel before going out~ Can’t believe I didn’t take any photo of the food for any day! But actually it was just jam and toast or cereal, and we would have it in the dining area where all other stayers are eating as well.
We wanted to use our last day in London to go for the Windsor castle, Stonehenge & Bath tour as recommended by Nad~ But it was quite expensive and one of the staff in the hostel wasn’t very keen to lend us a phone to call the tour agencies.
We were told to use the payphone in the hostel but firstly, we had no idea how to use the payphone in London. Secondly, I think the minimum amount you have to insert is 50 pence (S$1); that’s a very expensive phone call. Thirdly, I believe the dusty phone was not even working anymore because it ate up my 1 pound (S$2) >.>
So we approached another friendlier staff for help and she lent us the hostel’s phone right away! But that also caused a quarrel between her and the auntie (that unfriendly staff)~ That unfriendly auntie just seemed to dislike us very much ever since we moved in, whether it’s racism or we had accidentally offended her, I don’t know. But anyhow, we apologised to the nice staff for getting her into “trouble” and decided to give up on the tour.
Even the food looks so damn nice in all the pictures!!! But Bro thinks they tasted okay only, as usual, while I think it’s not bad but just not worth the 1-hour queue + pricey price tag~ It costs us around S$60 for this meal if I’m not wrong ._. But I would still queue for it to try at least once in my life!
Off to take the train to where Thapa recommended us to go, because we had no other plans. There really ain’t much in London in my opinion. Anyway, Thapa’s sister was moving house on this day, hence he couldn’t join us~
Reminded me of Korea’s Nami Island somehow (:
Got our tickets and mine is 1 pound cheaper because I had been fully-utilising my overly-expired Poly student pass throughout the trip 😛 Saved 2 bucks just like this! Most of the attractions’ age limit for student price is below 26, so I still had a few more days to use! Hahaha!
So this is actually the line that separates east from west of Earth in the same way that the Equator separates north from south. Though years later, they discovered that the line is actually about 102.5 m off, which means it’s not exactly centralised. It has still become a popular attraction of London nevertheless and has still been recognised as the Prime Meridian.
Oh did I mention that another reason I hate cold countries is that you either ended up looking like shit, or you look like you’re wearing the same clothes everyday because it’s always the same jacket – or both -.-”
For those who still do not get what has the meridian line aka the longitudinal line gotta do with time, the easiest way to put it is that’s what that causes the time difference between country to country~
Finally got it and happily eating away! 😀
The acorn-looking butt reminds me of one of the episodes of Ice Age somehow…hahaha! The one that kept showing silly scenes of the 2 squirrels fighting over an acorn xD
I remember it was still pretty early when we came back, so having no plans for the evening, Bro granted me to continue my Primark shopping!!! But at the same time, nagging that we still have a long trip to go and my luggage would become too heavy -.- It’s not like I get to come back every year…tsk.
This time round he was smarter though, he asked me how much time I need…hahaha! So I shopped while he went to explore and I finally managed to complete the store after like 1-2 hours! Primark is probably the place I miss most in London 😛
