Hi, my name is Thinkie, welcome to my blog!
I'm a student in cultural studies, a museum enthusiast, a scrapbooker and an art journaler. I love to travel within Europe and I enjoy photography. You can read more about me on my homepage.
And in Dutch I enjoy:
I live, I love, I create, I capture, I learn, I enjoy.
London 1-4-2011On April 1 we visited the Tower of London. I had walked past it many times, stayed in a hotel across the street from it, read about it, but had never visited (unless Frank took me there in 1988 and I have forgotten about it?) Now the Tower of London isn't just a Tower, it's a whole range of buildings enclosed by a wall. We did an audio tour that kept us busy for several hours and had us walking around outside as well as visiting many of the buildings. We saw the ravens, the yeoman warders (who actually live on the grounds), saw the crown jewels and some exhibitions and pittied a guy from CNN attempting to film an item on the Tower to go with the upcoming wedding of William and Kate whilst helicopters were flying to and fro spoiling the takes.
After our visit to the Tower we walked along the Thames while the sun was setting. We went back to West Hampstead and browsed around happily in cosy independent bookstore West End Lane Books. We got Indian dinner at the Bombay Bicycle Club down the road, where they had Keats' 'Sharing Eve's Apple' written on the wall, and had a picknick on the hotelroom floor.
