This is the National Gallery taken from Trafalgar Square.
Not sure who this is supposed to be but I like that he has crap on his head. As well as a seagull.
Mel is a goose whisperer of sorts. (Her secret is biscuits from Amsterdam)
Arguably the highlight of my trip - SQUIRRELS! Ms Red Jeans is a stranger from France but look how close the squirrel is to her!
Mel tricking a squirrel. She didn't actually have anything in her fingers.
A happy squirrel eating a nut.
A hungry squirrel digging for food.
These are the gates to Buckingham Palace.
An almost Where's Wally? except in this photo you find Jane and Mel. It's not hard.
We visited London Zoo. What a disappointment. All the animals looked sad and hungry.
Saw more squirrels.
Guess who lives here.
Outside St Paul's Cathedral.
St Paul's featuring the Millennium Bridge (which was featured in Harry Potter).
Shopping was, as expected, marvellous. We stayed at Ridgemount Hotel which is just a short walk from Oxford St and let me tell you, we did a lot of shopping. Mostly window, not a lot of buying. We pretty much went shopping every day, that's how good it was. I was mainly sucked in by the chains we don't have (COS and Uniqlo in particular) and Liberty. If I were given the opportunity to live inside Liberty, I'd take it up in a heartbeat. I kid you not.
Staying on the topic of clothes and shopping, one of the most profound things I noticed in Europe was how well everyone dressed. It's quite different city to city - London was very on trend and people were very conscious of how they looked. Parisians were very effortless and chic whereas the Italians were very glamourous. Now that I am back in Sydney all I want to do is rip my eyes out when I walk down the street. How is it possibly that almost an entire city can dress so poorly? Also! Londoners wear a lot of jumpers which you don't really see around here. We hardly saw any hoodies that we actually turned it into a game. Not really, I exaggerate - every time we saw a hoodie someone would exclaim something along the lines of 'That person was wearing a hoodie!'. Yep, my friends and I are cool.
Uni's starting tomorrow and I don't know how I'm going to focus as London is still clearly on my mind.
