The first time I went to London was autumn 2010. I went there with my father, stepmother, bigbrother and bigsister. We were there about four days. I fell in love with the city. There were everything you could imagine from city vacation; shopping, delicious food, experiences… List goes on and on… First thing what we did at London was finding our hotel. It was located near by the British Museum. After laying down at the hotel’s king size bed, we went to explore the city. That was the first time I got to see how multicultured place London really was, like a meltingpot. There was a very good chance for me to really get to know London’s food culture. It was amazing! There was chinese, indian food, arabian food and european food, almost everything you can imagine. I got crazy about sushi. It was totally insane! We ate sushi almost every day, at least once a day. It was so delicious!
What I also want to write about London, is the shops and street fashion. There were so many shops where I wanted to stop by. But that wasn’t an option because there were too many of them, and the clock was ticking. When we went to the Oxford Street there was many tourists also, intention to shop. The people at London were super stylish. There were so many different styles. That kind of dressing up I haven’t seen in Finland. Every pedestrian was personal and different.
The second time I went to London, was a year later, 2011. We had to go there again, because last four days were too short. At that time I went there with my father and sister and stepmother. My brother couldn’t come because of school. This time was a little bit different. We didn’t go to the museums. We ate, shopped and went to the O2 Arena, were was Titanic exhibition. It was so interesting and intriguing. Titanic has always been interesting thing for me. It was a shame, that there wasn’t allowed to photograph. But that experience always stays in my mind. In O2 Arena was also different kinds of exhibitions, such as Harry Potter animal-exhibition. There was Hermione’s real cat and Hagrid’s dog from the movies. There were also Harry Potter’s owl. They were so cute! We were amazed when we saw Back to the Future car, DeLorean DMC-12, which was so cool.
All in all, expiriences at London has been positive and interesting. I warmly recommend London to all who loves shopping, good food and culture.
