ontheroad

I still had some things on my To Do List for London, like

Abbey Road

I got up, bought breakfast at Tesco once again & went to the city to get to the Tube Station “St. John’s Wood” where I headed straight to Abbey Road & I played tourist once again =)

It was really cool & so many people went to see the famous studios & area of the Beatles. I walked up and down the cross-walk and got photographed by a nice asian!!! His woman was there too, she looked a little bit like Yoko Ono, but I gues just because she was older and asian…

After the photoshoting I walked down to Regent’s park which was pretty nice but partly under conctructions. So I walked down (wow walking down, do you have any synonyms for that, normalean??? Nope.) the Sherlock Holmes Street (aka Baker Street) & headed to Bethnal Green to meet Sharif to look for some Banksys once again & we found one which has actual been changed a little bit- sadly.

After going to Camden Town he brought me to St.Pancras at King’s Cross- wow, this station was like so fraking huge! And because of that, I guess, I totally forgot to get to the track of Harry Potter… We had some Chai Latte & a coffee, said goodbye & I went to the Eurostar area where I had to let my luggage get checked in.

I went to Paris within 2:15 hours and listened to the following songs:

1. Kelly Clarkson- My Life Would Suck Without You
2. Two Gallants- Las Cruses Jail
3. The Indelicates- Flesh
4. Portishead- Only You (live)
5. Mew- Symmetry
6. Die Ärzte- Claudia (live)
7. The Damned- Problem Child
8. Foo Fighters- Learn To Fly (live)’
9. Rufus Wainwright- Harvest Of Heart
10. Foo Fighters- Word Forward

I slept a lot =) When I arrived in Paris I got really confused by thr maps they had in the station & a very rude french couldn’t speak in whole sentences to me so I got pissed but I managed to get to my Hostel. There I met my two roommates, Alinsa from Rumania & Rachel from California, USA. We walked like a lot & then I went very tired to sleep!

Summer Edition ‘012 Day 38 4th of September: No Title

When I woke up my foot was worse than the day before- great!!!

I think I walked too much but still there’s so much to see! Classical dilemma! (At this point of my voyage I didn’t know my foot was broken… I found afterwards in Germany!)

Went straight to Picadilly Circus to buy a ticket for “We Will Rock You”- which was a great decision! I went to Notting Hill to finally see the Portobello Road Market! Beautiful I can tell, bought a “Notting Hill Shopping Bag”, the design of Natalie Imbruglia (there are several designs), bought at a 1 pound shop a film roll!!! & I found some original Banksys!!! Whoohoo! Found a famous one which is already protected & a new one- still I am not 100% sure if it is a Banksy grafitty or not. (Edit: It wasn’t) I was proud finding something on my own without the help of a smartphone or other devices!

I waited for Sharif but when he didn’t show up after 2 hours of waiting ( I am good at waiting but enough is enough :D)  I left for Camden Town. I liked it but when I went to Camden Lock Market on the ground I really felt uncomfortable, you know. My issue. And I just needed and wanted to leave and so I did. Glad, Sharif showed up not long after that.

there was one too… :(

Then we went “Banksy Hunting” together, which was really fun! Some we found, some were already gone. Sharif took me to Brick Lane, Beigel Bake where we had delicious pieces of cheese cake, which he gave to me. It was four pieces and he was like “Ms. Church, you eat all of them…” He is a little crazy, you know… Four pieces for me? I don’t think about that too long!!! ;) (He took 1 piece at least).

Unfortunately we didn’t have so much time for I had to be at the Dominion Theatre around 7 o’clock to pick up my ticket.
I enjoyed “We Will Rock You” so much!!! It wasn’t sold out so I could get an even better place I had before (and this one was good as well, and cheap!) So I had a great seat in the stalls of only 40 pounds! I really liked the show but I already told you that I guess =)

I went to New Oxford Street to see one more Banksy & went home.

at night at Picadilly

The movie “Anna Karenina” (by Tolstoj) had it’s premiere at the Odeon Cinema & when I went there after the show everything was gone already, no Jude, no Keira, too bad :P But I had a nice day though!
