Good morning everyone
I woke up at 10:00 with a sad feeling in me because it was my last day in London. I was in no rush for once because I have booked a lunch in the shard at 14:00. The weather has luckily dried up so it is sunny and warm but I'm going to bring a rain jacket just in case. The shard is the second tallest building in Europe and is 306m tall. It is called the shard because that is what the architect wanted it to resemble. It has 95 floors and I'm going to eat on the 33 floor. The restaurant that I am eating at is called Hutong and is a fancy asian restaurant with there specialty fried duck, yum! I am going to take the bus to the other side of London on Waterloo bridge and then walk by the Thames to The Shard. First I am going to grab a quick breakfast at Pret a manger.
I bought a toastie and a pizza croissant at Pret a manger. The toastie is a ham sandwich with cheese in it which you then fry so the cheese melts and the ham/meat cooks. The pizza croissant is something new to me its basically a kind of croissant with tomatoes cheese and ham in it and it tastes delightful (a word thatI learnt from the polite english).
This is Tate modern. It is Britain's national gallery of international modern art and forms part of the Tate group with Tate Britain.
This is Tate modern's new extension.
The shard is brilliant but Big ben is still undefeated.
By the time I had got to the Shard it was 13:30 which was perfect timing. I walked into the shard's lobby and showed the lady by the desk my ticket and asked for where the elevator was. She told me the directions and I went on with some others. Surprisingly the elevator was quick and it went to the floor 33 before you could blink but it made me feel a bit dizzy.
WOW! The restaurant left me speechless it was mouth-dropping. You really felt like you were in China.
The view was amazing it was like being in London eye all over again. They had a even better view at the toilets.
If I didn't have a plane to Cath I would probably sit here forever.
As you can see I bought a lot of food yum!!
This is there famous fried duck and it tastes even better than it looks. YUMMY!!!!!!
After eating all that food I called a taxi to get to my hotel because mu plane was leaving at 20:00 and it was already 16:00. Once I had got home I packed my left my key and called another taxi to get me back to the Shard so I can take the train back to Gatwick airport. Once I got to Gatwick I checked in and waited for my plane which was half a hour awat from Landing so I just watched some Netflix. I am now in Sweden in my house and it's 00:00 so goodnight everyone and see you all in the next adventure.
