A wholesome day out with just me and my kids in London 28 Dec 2014 (Part 1)

It was a day of walking with their daddy and I bet they regretted not choosing to go with their mummy to go shopping (Picadilly Circus & Oxford Street) instead.

We must have done more than 10km of walking that day.

We started off our walk at Embankment station, crossed the Thames using the Millenium Bridge, saw the London Eye and it's extended queue, walked past the London Dungeon, cross the Thames River again to see Big Ben and Westminster.

And just when we thought we can just hop on a train to go from Westminster station to London Bridge, it turned out that several tube stations were closed due to maintenance and that made us walk the whole stretch from Westminster all the way across the station St James Park(closed that 2 weeks) to Victoria Station where we took the tube to London Bridge station.

During the journey, we were either looking for cafes to use their toilets or just resting at bus stops to shelter our faces from the cold winds. We caught some fun while resting at this park near to Victoria station where the kids had a fun experience of chasing pigeons, seeing a whole bunch of them take flight, make a small loop and land again in the same area.

Once we reached London Bridge station, we walked across the Thames and along it to reach the Tower Bridge and looped back to London Bridge via the opposite bank pedestrian pathways.

Nate was so knackered that he started to make some unintelligible speech and was laughing to himself after realising it.

It goes something like "OrChee Orr Orr".

When we reached London Bridge station again after so much walking, the kids were so elated to see their mum at the Station. So tired we were, we just dined at a nearby takeaway shop.

Quite a heavy day on foot for the kids but it was very memorable.
