I remember my dad kept telling me when I was a bit younger “make sure you write an essay about your trip” he said (LOL), so this time around I thought it would be nice sharing my experience with you, I hope you enjoy this.
So Stay Tuned 🧐.
A question I used to ask myself before coming was: how will I survive in London? This was actually my first time traveling overseas alone so it was bit scary.
I was only going to spend three days in London so I tried to make the best out of those days.
First Selfie for the trip. At Murtala Mohammed Airport Nigeria 🇳🇬
My airplane trip was 6 hours long! You never think about planning to be entertained for that long. I brought a couple books, but I found myself watching the movies on the plane and thinking about the things I would be seeing on my vacation. The roar of the engines finally had me drifting off to sleep.
London Heathrow Airport was amazing. It had all kinds of shops, mostly shops for women, but also gaming shops and toy stores. I couldn’t even compare it to Murtala Mohammed Airport Abuja Nigeria.
This was really really nice 👍, I couldn’t stop staring at it
This was used as means of transporting the disabled people, elderly people too.
I also met my Vice Chancellors Wife at the airport, she was going for a conference in Scotland, I was really happy seeing her and had the privilege to take a nice selfie with her even though I was already so stressed out.

I think London is fantastic. Whatever corner of the city you visit you will find the world itself personified. I mean that you will meet a lot of people from a big diversity of cultures or in other words people from all over the world. You will find difficulties to communicate; Dialects and accents will be your first and greatest problems and it’s going to be a challenge for you to interact with others.
My taxi ride to my hotel was a blur of buildings and traffic.
The next day I had a little tour around
London has some of the best free museums and they’re often the best places to visit. My favourite is the Imperial War Museum.
Underground Train station, your access here is just your train station card (Oyster) which is relatively affordable depending on where you plan on go going to.
ST James Palace. The Mall
The Diana Princess of Wales Memorial Walk
The Parliament is the Palace of Westminster, the meeting place of the House of Commons and the House of Lords of the United Kingdom.
The Queen’s Gate
Another cute selfie 🙂
Trafalgar’s Square is a public square in the City of Westminster, Central London, built around the area formerly known as Charing Cross.
A lot of people visit here, music, some street artists, it’s a place with life
A regular shop, most of their products had things inscribing LONDON, UK .
This little man was trying to sell out his ticket
The Famous phone booth
London Bus, it moves 24 hours everyday, so reliable and convenient, you also have to use your Oyster Card to be able to ride on it. It is also free for the kids and elderly too.
This particular picture has a lot even though it is a bit dark, there is the famous London Eye and London Bridge. The London Eye is Europe’s tallest Ferris wheel, is the most popular paid tourist attraction in the United Kingdom with over 3.75 million visitors annually, and has made many appearances in popular culture.
The next day I had to travel to Texas, to meet my mom and siblings.
So, how could I sum up London? I think it is one of the best places in the world but maybe it is better to say that London is the world.
New post coming up about my trip to USA so stay tuned too 😊
