Beanie went to London, Day 3, and a Giveaway!!

On Monday 31st May, we got up for breakfast at the youth hostel!!

Andrea had cereal and I had croissant!! (they didn't have any chocolate bread. :o( )

 Then it was time for us to leave....!

So we crossed the road and got C10 Bus to Victoria Station!!

Here we go over the bridge!!

Oh, that's a funny picture!!! I don't know how that happened!

And there's the Big Wheel!!

The bus later decided it wasn't going to Victoria at all so we had to get off someplace else. Luckily someone else who also got off early told us the direction to take for Victoria Station. It's down here, past the Coroner's Office. Andrea says that's where they cut up dead people to see what they died of!!

Oh! The Scottish army place!
I don't think I'll join up.

 Then we saw a pile of funny umbrellas!!!

Oh! That street sign says Victoria Station that way, so we're going the right way!!

You can just see the Big Wheel at the end of the street there!

Oh look! I remember passing this statue on Bus 11 last Saturday!!

And this one too! this one is all about Suffragettes - Andrea says they got Women the Vote back in the early 1900's!

And I even sung on Broadway too!!!
I'm famous!!
We saw Rainbow lights too!!
(you can just see my reflection in the glass underneath it!)

Later, we saw some Scarey Spiders in a shop window!!!

And some flies too!

Wonder what that is?

Oh! We're here!
I don't want to go home..... I've had too much fun!

Andrea said we weren't getting train, and walked off somewhere else!
We lost a piece of art on this gate!

We're getting the coach home!!!

We managed to get Window seat too! This coach was full up....

...and off we go past some lovely pretty buildings!

We went back over River Thames again!

And then Andrea got out Jaffa Cakes!
I love Jaffa Cakes!
What are they??

Oh, they're sponge cookies/biscuits, with a dollop of orange jelly on top and covered in chocolate!
I love Jaffa Cakes!!
Andrea let me eat the whole box!! (Bob T Bear was right, these are Fab!)

We went past these horses on the Coach...

And then we got to Countryside!

And here we are back in Brighton!!! All safe and sound!

And now for the giveaway!! Because Andrea ended up with 3 goodie bags at the Manga show, she has lots of stuff to Give Away!
First of all is this T-shirt, which is size Large. (the figurines on it don't come with the T-shirt, although you can have those too if you want!)

Giveaway Two is a Japanese Manga book called "Death Note".

And Giveaway Three is this, which folds out to show.....

This - four little CD things of the same game, Monster Hunter. I'm not sure what they get played on, but if you recognise them, and have three friends you can share them with so you all play together, say so! I think it's for a Sony PSP and it's a Multiplayer thing.
So - for the giveaway, leave a comment saying which one you'd like - I'd like to have three different "winners" at least. And don't forget to leave a contact place for me to find you - whether it's an email address or blog. Let's say by 16th June??

Beanie Goes to London, Day Two

On Sunday 30th May, we got up and packed everything up ready to go!

We had our snap crackle pop cereal and fruit juice for breakfast and Andrea even took some bananananas for "on the way". On the way where?

After checking out, we went down the road to Bus Stop 309. Ah, there should be a bus along any minute!

And we're off! Andrea says we're going to Canning Town.

When we got there, we saw signs for Excel! Is that where we're going?!
We're going to see another Manga Show?!

We passed here on the way. Andrea says those sticky uppy yellow things are the O2, 3, 4 Arena.

We went over a Via Duct!

 We then went past Tidal Basin Tavern! Oh, look, Excel is that way... 

Gosh!! We get to walk by the Thames River!

 Andrea said this is called Boo Lee Vard, and they have them in Paris too!!

That's it!! That's where we're going!! We came here last year too!!

I remember that statue as well!!
When we got inside, we joined the line for "early Ticket holders" and they gave us Green Wrist Band and Bag of Freebies!!! Then we walked over to here. There were lots of people wearing costume!!

OH!! She brought her friends along too!!!! Just like Andrea brought me!!

As we were going along, Andrea picked up two more Bags of Freebies that people had left behind!! We also did "High Fives" as we walked along and Andrea stuck me out again, so I could High Five as well!!! I love doing High Five!!!

When we got inside, we met Scooby Dooby Dooby Dooby Doo!!!
I love him!!!

We had a good look around, and met some SteamPunks!! One of them let me try on his Top Hat With Goggles but it was too big for me!! They had Lots of Gadgets they had made!

We also saw Tardis and Dalek!!

After a long time walking round talking to people and buying a few things, we came outside again. We saw even more people in Costume!!

And a Big Bear too!!!

We then went to DLR underground to go someplace else I'd been before...!

When we came out the other end, I reminded Andrea to take a picture of the yellow touchpad thing - if you come to London and get Oyster Card, you touch it on that yellow thing to get into Underground (and the other end to get out of Underground!!) They have these on buses too, but on Bus, you only touch the card to this when you get on.

We then had a Sit Down at Canada Water and had the Bananananana that Andrea had got!

We had a bit of a wander round as it was still too early to check into the place we were staying at.

Brunel Museum? Oh I remember now! That's near Youth Hostel!!

we relaxed by daisy and buttercup flowers!!

I remember this Muriel too!!

Oh, this is new!!

He's got plier and scissors! I wonder if they're SteamPunks?

Here we are!!! Thameside Youth Hostel!!!

When we checked in and unpacked at our bunkbed, Andrea showed me a Special Present!
She had someone draw my portrait at the Manga Show while we were talking to them! It's it wonderful!!!!!! It's by a girl called Kate Holden and we're going to get this framed!!!
There's a little playground out there....!

We went out for another wander round and saw these Swans and Ducks!! (We came back here later on with some bread and fed them!!!)

We remembered to lose some more of my pictures too!!!

Here it is! let's go in!

That's his Engine House!!

We watched a very interesting movie about Brunel, and saw all the exhibits. Andrea bought a DVD about Brunel and a book about the history of Rotherhithe.

And then Andrea let me drive the train!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm soo HAPPY!!!
All aboard!! Wooo-wooo!!!

WHERE'S THE BRAKES????!?!?!?!!

We sat at my favourite table for a bit too....

And we saw these pretty window thingies too!

And look, there's a houseboat!

After all that walking, we got thirsty, so we stopped for a drink!!!

And then we got hungry!!!
We had Crayfish cocktail! YUMMM!!!

And then we had Scottish Salmon and Brie fishcakes with chips!

On the way back to hostel, we saw boat on the Thames!!

.....and relax....

Good, huh?!
