My London Adventure: Part One


RO:
Saptamana trecuta am vizitat Londra pentru a doua oara in viata mea. Vom rataci impreuna, virtual, de-a lungul a trei postari, pe strazile si la principalele obiective turistice din acest oras cosmopolit. Amestecul de culturi, rase, traditie si lux, infrastructura moderna si case vechi, din caramida, bine conservate, nu are cum sa nu te impresioneze. Va recomand sa achizitionati un London Pass, pentru 2 sau 3 zile, in functie de perioada pe care o aveti la dispozitie, varianta la pachet cu Oyster Card, incarcat cu o suma minima (cu 7,60 lire pe zi puteti calatori nelimitat in zonele 1-3 cu metroul, de exemplu). Eu le-am cumparat pe ambele de la statia de metrou Victoria si tot acolo am predat Oyster Card-ul in ultima zi, primind inapoi 5 lire (un fel de garantie pentru card), plus suma ramasa neutilizata.
In prima jumatate de zi, dupa sosire si cazare, am avut timp doar de Natural History Museum, care se viziteaza gratuit si pe care vi-l recomand calduros, Royal Albert Hall si Stamford Bridge, stadionul echipei Chelsea. Un lucru care m-a impresionat in mod deosebit in Londra sunt muzicantii si performerii pe care ii vezi peste tot la metrou sau pe strazi, animand atmosfera si colorand orasul cu acel aer aparte. Intotdeauna am fost de parere ca britanicii sunt una dintre cele mai talentate natii si ca emisiunile noastre de profil (sau ale oricarei alte tari) nu le vor egala niciodata pe ale lor. Sunt deosebiti, chiar am vazut doi street performeri care m-au impresionat mult, pe care regret ca nu i-am filmat, fiind grabita: un saxofonist ce reinterpreta diverse hit-uri internationale in stil modern si un barbat care interpreta sublim la harpa melodia “My heart will go on”, din Titanic.
Temperaturile se simt mai ridicate decat la noi, deoarece vantul lipseste sau este mult mai slab, insa vremea este teribil de schimbatoare: acum e soare, peste jumatate de ora ploua. Daca v-a placut postarea aceasta, stati pe aproape, pentru ca urmeaza inca doua, cu principalele atractii turistice.

            Last week I went on a trip to London for the second time in my life. We will wander together in three separate posts, on the streets and inside the main attractions of this cosmopolitan city. The mixture of cultures, races, tradition and luxury, modern infrastructure and well - preserved old, brick houses is overwhelming. I strongly recommend purchasing a London Pass for two or three days, depending on how much time you have, together with an Oyster Card, which you can charge with the amount needed (for instance, 7,60 pounds will take you anywhere within areas 1 to 3 by tube during a day) I bought both from Victoria station and got refunded for my Oyster Card in the same place (5 pounds guarantee paid back, plus the remaining sum on the card).
            On the first day, upon arriving and checking in, there was little time left so I only got to see the Natural History Museum, free of charge and lovely, the Royal Albert Hall and Stamford Bridge, the Chelsea stadium. I was really impressed by the musicians and performers seen everywhere from the metro stations to the streets, who really added colour to the city. I saw two really talented ones (I’ve always thoughts the Brits are the most talented people on Earth), one playing international hits on the saxophone and the other, “My heart will go on” from Titanic, of his harf.
            The temperatures are not that bad, since it isn’t very windy compared to my country, but the weather is constantly changing: now sunny, then, in half an hour, rainy. If you liked this post, stay tunned, because I have two more coming, with more attractions!

  1. It looks amazing so far! You are definitely right about the weather. When I went there, it was constantly changing. Raining, then sunny, then windy, and back again!

  2. Ce frumos, esti o fericita ca poti calatori! Imaginile m-au dus cu gandul la filmul "O noapte la muzeu", numai ca acel muzeu era in New York :)
    O zi frumoasa sa ai!
