London – Barcelona – Sevilla – Madrid – Toledo – Manchester
16 days, 2 countries and 6 cities. A life long dream realized in 2016.
A red-eye, uneventful flight brought us to Jordan, where we had to endure 7 hours transit before making it to our intended destination. We zonked out very early that day but in reality, we caught in jetlag.
Woke up at ungodly hour at 4 in the morning, tried to sleep again but the brain just wouldn’t listen. Headed out to Natural History Museum to take some photos of the interior. It is seriously beautiful. Too bad, too little time spent here so this is on my must visit list the next time I come back.
We took the tube to Camden where we visited the market (Camden Lock). I guess it was a little too much for us to soak in due to the crowd plus we got a little lost because there were just too much to see and explore. Personally, Camden can be a little intimidating especially for first time visitors but once you get used to the surroundings, it is actually a charming place and bursting with characters. Again, this is the place I’ll fondly remember as the first place where I had the famous (but so-so) fish and chips from Poppies and also where my camera was brutally attacked by the pigeon droppings.
Our last stop of the day was the British Museum. This ranks well over number one in terms of the museums I’ve visited. Both the quality and the number of curated items are already worth the visit. It is just too bad that the timing didn’t permit us for longer stay.
