From My Europe Journals:

2004-09-14 | London, United Kingdom

So far my trip is going well. When I first got in to London I met a guy named Esani. We exchanged information as we were walking back and forth in customs.

Right after I got out of there I met a guy named chad. I said to him "So, the adventure has begun" and this kicked off a load of excitement and conversation. Chad was from California and i have a random pic of him giving me the hang ten on the tube.

We ended up figuring out how to get to our destinations and went up to the booth. Come to find out they only accepted pounds. I was a total dumbass, but I didn't want to get screwed on my exchange rate in the airport. Oh well. Luckily Kurt gave me 10 euros and it worked out great. We got on the train and had small talk and exchanged information.

Once I got out of the tube my heart just dropped being in the city. Black cabbies cruising by, all the cute accents, the beautiful architecture. History . . . Read More..

Fun in Town 2004-09-15 | London Today I woke up, showered, had a crappy breakfast and the met up with the people I talked with last night.

Ginger and our other friend ended up getting an all day travel pass and hitting up the Tate Modern museum. By the time we got out there I wanted to sit down and write in my journal and I ended up falling asleep to the great view of St. Pauls cathedral. Somehow while I was sleeping some girl was sketching me sleeping. I never got to see it but I am wondering if my hair looked good. :-D

We also saw the tower bridge. That was probably the most amazing bridge I have ever seen. I have taken a lot of good pictures so far of me and my new friends.

After that we grabbed some lunch and ended up going to Big ben Westminster Abbey and Parliament. But when we got out, there was this huge demonstration. Apparently today they wanted to pass a bill banning hunting. The city was furious with this bill and it was so cute how they came together. I mean, if

So, this morning I checked out of my first hostel and I went directly to the train station at Kings Crossing and picked up a ticket for tomorrow to Edinburgh!! My plan is to arrive and in the morning start this 3 day back packing tour in the highlands. This will certainly be a huge change of pace. I really didn't do a whole lot today...I did have the most amazing fish and chips. I spent a lot of time visiting the national museum. Almost everyday I am in these museums and I get very tired from the sleeping pattern change I am in. So yesterday and the day before I took naps on the nice leather couches. A lot of people do it, so you don't have to worry. I was safe. I was feeling a bit lonely too this day. I think it was because I was out on the city with no accommodation and no one to hang out with. I still need to get my feet wet with these kinds of feelings. But almost like someone sent for me I met someone in the museum from NYC and I started to feel much . . . Read More..

2004-09-17 | Edinburgh, United Kingdom I woke up and I said goodbye to my Israeli friends; gave them a postcard. The fire alarm woke me up today. I made it to the front desk just in time to get my 10 P deposit back.

Today I saw the amazing British museum. It had everything from all over the world and I especially liked the Parthenon Sculptures.

After that (I spent about two hours) I went into a tourist shop with cheesy gifts. I bought a pair of boxers that I will remember London the most. They say "Mind the Gap". That's what the subway says every time you leave to make sure everyone (even the dumb American tourists) gets off safe. After that I went back to the hostel and picked up my backpack and went on the internet. I tried loading all my pics and putting them on the internet but the connection seemed to refuse the pics. I was pissed. I lost two pounds.

After that I went to the train and had a nice long conversation with two very nice English people. This really helped with my
