This Post Doesn't Have a Title on It

The spirits of holiday is coming to an end!  This is fine, even acceptable, but the very thought of going back to normal life is still aching for some of us. I do hope for a better year for all the friends from blogoshere. If you are reading this, thank you for your visit. Encouraged by my other half, I set my sights on attending a course this year and I am kind of terrified of this new step. I don’t mean to leave behind my dear blog but my gibberish posts a.k.a photos of my travels may be delayed. Perhaps it is about time to talk about food from my last trip, such as Panini, Fried cheese and a few set menu from McDonald, Selection of Cheese and Wine from the hotel, Fried Noodle from Wasabi, Scone, Pancake, and Christmas Cake, all of which I miss extremely nowadays!

Kensington Palace

Kensington Palace is one of my favorite places to visit in London. We visited the State Rooms opened to the pubic. It mainly features Queen Victoria’s story and dresses and artifacts from Queen Victoria totally intrigued me. Aside from being an official London royal residence of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, it was the official residence of Diana, Princess of Wales until her death. Another part of the charm is the nature of the staffs, who are very helpful and made us feel welcomed at the Palace. However, the rooms had very little content and the lighting was too subdued. Since we were on time limit, I just wish I had more time to enjoy the garden and the tea at the Palace café that day.

Windsor Castle

Going to Windsor Castle is quite easy. We just took a bus No. 702 from Victoria Coach Station at 10 a.m and arrived to Windsor around 11:30. The only inconvenience that we had was when the chauffeur politely refused to take our Scottish Pound Notes and asked for English Pound Notes. The shops from Windsor accepted the notes from Bank of Scotland anyway. Offhand I recall seeing the bell from Mandalay when I visited Windsor Castle. They don’t allow taking pictures inside St. George’s Chapel, Queen Mary’s Dolls House, which I utterly love, and State Apartments. Of all things, it is a popular tourist attraction for its architecture and I would say it is a must see for everyone except someone who think every castle looks alike.
