London Walker [Part 1]

19th July 2008

This trip had been past for almost 1 year and now only I had the available time to upload it.
This is our first ever backpack trip during our study in Sheffield. Transportations, accommodations and everything are under our arrangement. Journey from Sheffield to London took almost 4 hours. UK bus driver is very punctual. If the time for bus departure is 8 am, 8 am they will drive off straightly at time. So don't be late. No excuses will be accepted if you are late.
Once we reach, we're heading to our hostel. It's a budget hostel. So, can't expert much from it. Anyway, for me, if there is bed and toilet provided for me, I will appreciate it so much. The name of our hostel is Stonebridge Hostel. Good thing about this hostel was breakfast provided. So we won't worry much about what and where breakfast we should look for. But the bad new was, it's too far away from London city. It tooks us almost 40 minutes from hostel to reach London city.

My first experience sleeping on double decker bed. Saw the bathroom attached behind?

Address: 16 Hillside, London, NW10 8 BN
Most of the places we visited on the day we reach London city was museum. Most of the museum in London is FOC. No entrance fees being charged.
1. Science Museum
This museum is located on South Kensington, London and is a major London tourist attraction. The Science Museum is made up of a number of galleries, for example:
Corliss Stream Engine, telling the stories of British Industrial Revolution
Apollo 10 Command Module
Lockheed 10A
2. National Museum
It's just beside Science Museum. One thing I love about London is all the attraction places are nearby. However, we only able to sighted around for less than half hours coz they were about to close that time. In this museum, I able to feel the Japan's earthquake. Scary leh?

3. Victoria & Albert Museum

4. Royal Albert Hall
I think most of you must heard of this building before as our own local sensation No.1 Singer in Malaysia, Datuk Siti Nurhaliza held her successful solo concert here. She is the first Asian pop singer to have a solo performance there. The Beatles and The Rolling Stone also ever performed at this building which recognised as one of the UK's most treasured and distinctive buildings, recognisable the world over.
5. Hyde Park
This is one of the place that I'm really love to visit once I saw the signboard. Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fountain.
The person I'm really love to meet if her royal highness is still alive.
Another reason I love about UK is we can sleep and lay down in the park. Compare to Malaysia, I'm totally speechless
