Being a tourist in our own city

London is an amazing city, but I tend to stick to the area I live at the weekends and don't venture into central that often. But on Saturday my mum came to London which was the perfect excuse to be a tourist. We booked tickets for an open top bus tour which was so much fun  and the weather was perfect for it. 

We booked our trip with Original Tours and went on the red tour which takes you past all the classic attractions including Big Ben, the Tower of London and the Shard. Even though it seems a bit of a cheesy thing to do, it was actually really fun. It also reminded me of the episode of Friends when they go to London.

Once my mum left Tom and I went to the Olympic Park to watch the England rugby game with some of my friends. It was so much fun, the atmosphere was amazing. I definitely want to get down there again to watch another game at some point. 

It was so nice to spend the day being a tourist in our own city. It has made me want to make the effort to explore more often. But I know that next weekend I'll probably spend the whole weekend in my flat!
