Day 3, Thursday 26th January. A much better nights sleep, think the use of earplugs helped. The pillows have a lot to answer for, I just can’t get get comfy.
Waking up in a strange place confined to one room takes some getting used to. It’s like I’ve lost my freedom to roam.
Today is our last full day in London, it’s not my best day.
Emotions, sensitivity running high.
We venture out later this morning, think we are both tired from yesterday’s adventures.
We wind through the streets passing faceless people, no eye contact, no good morning, heads down looking at their phones all rushing and pushing.
The hustle and bustle of London begins once more, no one has the time to even smile!
So strange…so alien, it’s like living in the covid world once again! The only difference is they barge and push into you without an apology…I was beginning to think I was invisible at one point. The underground people pushing in front of me from every direction, just because I’m not as quick as them, at getting through the gates!
I would have never have managed the spaghetti confusion of the tube on my own, I think I would have just froze, as the world passed me by.
My stomach has been in knots with the anxiety, but as Hubby says sometimes you have just got to come out of your comfort zone to experience.
I’ve definitely not been in my comfort zone! 😂
Especially not on the underground tube!
We reach our first destination of the day, Westminster Abbey.
Another wow moment as we just stand looking at the grand structure, the detail, the workmanship is purely unbelievable
After taking in the beauty of this Abbey we make our way through the grounds to the grand entrance
Through the door way, I stop…Wow so much to take in, my head is moving in every direction possible.
Captured by the intricate detail, the ceiling, the stained glass, the carving of the wood, stone and marble.
Words cannot express the true beauty!
So many photos, far too many to show, think I got a little carried away with my camera!
I was overwhelmed as my eyes leaked a little, making it difficult to look through the lens of my camera.
What a magnificent place, just to think I am standing in the same building where kings and queens have stood. So many royal weddings and coronations.
The burial site of hundreds of prominent people, monarchs, prime ministers, poets, actors, scientists, military leaders and the unknown warrior.
There is so much history in this architectural masterpiece.
