Amanda's adventure in London, United Kingdom

6 September 2017

DAY TRIP TO LONDON! Mark, Allison, Marco, Natasha and I (same crew who picnicked yesterday) woke up AT 5 AM to catch the train to London. Once we arrived, we walked over to Kings Cross and got our pictures taken at Platform 9 3/4! We went to get breakfast, then met our tour guide for what ended up being the best tour we've been on this whole trip. Our guide, Matthew was incredibly invested! He told us the history very enthusiastically and included some other random tidbits, including the story of how a drunk Irishman was able to break into Buckingham Palace and spend 3 hours there undetected. The tour ended with the option to join Matthew at the pub for a discount, so we split a few plates of fish and chips. After the pub, Marco, Allison and Natasha went to see the Horse Inspection, but Mark and I went to Mother Mash, that restaurant we've been talking about for the last two years. We got bangers and mash and it was a fantastic meal. It lived up to my memories. Then train to Paris!
