Would you like a cuppa tea?

BTW that title was done in a really bad pommy accent.

I would just like to take the opportunity to apologise for any spelling mistakes, bad use of grammar and also sentances that don't make sense on this blog. Sometimes my brain and fingers don't work together and one or the other gets left behind to create something that leaves people wondering if I actually went to school, let alone get a degree in Communications/Professional Writing. I think my mum may be reading this shaking her head as she speaks english heaps good.

Ok, so now I am in sunny London. Yes, it's true, it is actually sunny. When I first arrived I think it was 22 degrees so everyone was sun baking in the parks. The amount of white flesh I was exposed to was a little scary. And disturbing. How about disturbingly scary? My first day here was a little bit of a blur. I got DRILLED at customs as to why I was in the country and why I didn't know my sister's street name. Hello, I hadn't slept for 24 hours! Then I got asked why I was going to Aberdeen and why I didn't know my cousin's job description amongst other questions. It was really full on!

In order to try and keep me awake my sister and brother in law took me to Kensington Gardens where we had a walk around and my nephew had a play in the playground. I managed to stay awake until 730 and then slept for 14 hours straight. It was awesome.

London is a lot different to New York. The colours here are a lot less vibrant. Like the colour of the sky, the houses and the scenery seem to be watered down and the whole vibe is just mild (this is the only word I can think to describe it). It's really hard to explain but I haven't clicked with the place as I did with New York.

Yesterday my sister and I went to a local park and had lunch. It felt very British. I don't know why. I didn't even have a cup of tea. I can't actually remember what we did after that. Later on that afternoon I went and met Hannah and some of her friends at London Bridge which was cool. Had my first tube ride which was no worries.

Today I went to Hampton Court which is a beautiful palace that belonged to Henry the somethingth (the dude who was a prick and beheaded a couple of his wives - men pfft). It had gorgeous gardens in which we had lunch. I am seriously going to have to be rolled off the plane when I come home as I am eating so well over here.

I am heading off to my youth hostel to start my tour on Thursday night. Well, staying there Thursday night for a 630am start on Friday morning. Hopefully I can get another entry in before hand.

Hope everyone is well. Let me leave you with a theory I am planning on developping while I am away. The way a toilet flushes is a good anaology of the country.....For example, the US had a very full on, brash, almost violent flush and sucked everything down in one quick go. Here in England the flush is very weak and puncy. Hmmmm, think about it at least. I think I am onto something.

You either jinxed yourself with that grammar disclaimer or went back and added it after you finished the post, 'cos it's definitely your best effort yet at bastardising the English language!

Hey Ness, Annie and I have just returned from our little trip to Tassie and were just looking through your posts. It's actually really quite cool to keep track of your travels, it's like a little soap opera! Enjoy your flight to Ingerland. P.S. Can you post photo's? Or, do you need Jazz or I to fly over and show you how?

Can't wait for the continental crapper critique..... French: arrogant and smelly, German: moody and efficient, Italian: stylish and chaotic, Ibiza: pingin' 24/7!

Hey ChicKadoodle!! am loving your posts. I too found the NYers exceedingly rude. Especially in a retail environment. Its a fact when you don't get tipped you don't need to smile. In a way I don't blame them - they are earning $5.70 an hour. I like your toilet theory. I couldn't get used tot he American loos. they fill half -way up with water and have really big bowls. I imagine its to hold their big American Asses.

1. Hmmmm, do you think I can blame the jet lag for my muddled thoughts?? I had a quick read of that blog and I definitely bastardised the English language in that one! HA

2. Hey AJ - hope you had a good time away. Got your msg thanks. I can't post photos yet, my sister's computer is broken and I can only use the net. Hello, did I not post a picture of my backpack? I do have some inner nerd in me!!

3. Laura!! How much did you love the Fairway opposite the Beacon?! That's the supermarket I was in love with!! That's the place where the check out associates were so freakin' rude!!! Hope you are well xx

The French gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne has a wonderful aroma, a rich taste; the saltiness increases with the incidence of veining. The overall flavor is piquant but not overly sharp. Bleu d'Auvergne started life as an imitation of Roquefort, using cow's milk in place of sheep's milk. Legend has it that a peasant, around 1845, decided to inject his cheese with a blue mold that he found growing on his left-over bread (the motto being, waste not, want not). And thus, the gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne was born. This French gourmet blue cheese comes from the region of Auvergne and the cheese is made from milk of Salers and Aubrac cows. The rind is very thin and so the cheese is usually wrapped in foil. The cheese is rich and creamy with a pale yellow color and scattered holes and well-defined greenish-blue veining. We cut and wrap this cheese in wedge of 8 ounces and 1 pound.

Depending on what your destination is and how long you plan on making your trip for, the airfare may be the priciest expense. Because of this, finding a great deal on the airfare becomes extremely important. The more money you are able to save on the plane tickets, the more money you will be able to use toward your actual vacation.

When it comes to purchasing your airline tickets, the sooner the better. This goes for basically anywhere you plan on traveling. When you purchase a ticket sooner, lets say several months before the trip, there will be less of a demand, which will drive the price of the ticket down. However, on the flip side, as the day of the desired flight approaches, the flight's seats will begin to fill up. As fewer and few seats become available, the higher the demand will be, which will drive the price up. Booking the flight in as far advance as you can may save you hundreds of dollars in the long run.

Flying during the middle of the week is generally the cheapest time to fly. Fewer people travel during mid week than on Friday through Sunday. If at all possible, fly out on a Tuesday or Wednesday. You may actually find prices significantly less expensive on the Wednesday than the Sunday of the same week.

Looking for airfare online will probably be your best be at securing the cheapest possible flight price. There are multiple booking agencies which specialize in finding the cheapest airfare. However, to save time, go to Bing.com, which offers a comprehensive flight search option. Bing will search other travel sites (Expedia, Priceline, Hotwire, etc.) and display the cheapest flight form each site. From here you will be able to decide which website offers the best deal.

Students can often find discounted airfare by visiting STA.com. This is the Student Travel Association, and it can sometimes find less expensive airfare for the traveling student. This isn't always the case, but it doesn't hurt to look.
