Arrow Just returned from London (to Wales) - pics!

Just came back from a trip with my boyfriend to London - first time I've been there, and I LOVE it. Reminds me of my home city a little, just ten times as big

Got some neat photos up, went to the zoo and everything!

Technically it was a holiday within a holiday as I didn't return back home, but to my 'home-base' in Wales. I love the UK! Have to go home in a few weeks which I'm a bit sad about but should be able to come back next year hopefully!





This Peacock had heaps of fun hitting on my boyfriend who was chuffed! I believe it's an Indian green peafowl but not sure.



The London Zoo Aquarium - the Dragon Scale fish were AWESOME.





Buckingham Palace:



So much fun! I love being a tourist =D

So glad you liked the UK. I live in Manchester. I have a very good friend in Perth . They love it. They have been there nearly 30 years. I have never been though. Dont like flying. I could never leave England although Australia sounds and looks lovely.Except for the sharks and snakes and spiders.Like some of your sun though.

How beautiful! I absolutely love London. It's one of my "need a holiday to recharge" destinations. Even though I'm on the continent thanks to living close to a convenient airport, it's day-trip distance for me. Your photos are amazing! That peacock is picture postcard material!

Very nice photos. it's always nice when tourists have a good time over here in the UK. the peafowl is simply a green peafowl, or Javan peafowl (what I usually call them) but that is for the one we have where I work, where the subspecies of green peafowl we have is endemic to the island of Java.

Hi Caro... sounds like a nice time for you in London. Was the weather cooperative?? Great photos.
I love London as well. Never enough time to do all the things I want to do/see while there. As I'm a book lover, I always have to visit the legendary Charing Cross Rd...

Actually yes the weather has been in a remarkably good mood lol. Sunny and mild, last time I was here was in Summer, that was also really nice weather. I mainly came this time of year (feb - may) to see if I like the colder weather - yep! Plan on moving here so want to suss the basic stuff out first haha.

Thanks for all the lovely comments!
