omracer's Holiday: The Greenwich Journey Home (Day 6)

Well, it's finally the say of returning, the time had passed, friends met and places saw But one more big of exploring to go before I return home. The vlog is below

The sleep and pack

Well, I got to crash out at 1am last night and that was the meal being SO good yet spiced out. But I managed to get up at 7 after my eyes woke at 5am. Then I started to get the packing done, with a bit of reorganise and the folding, I had much less trouble squeezing things in. The weather outside was looking hopeful and I still felt sad about leaving that amazing girl behind. Then I had to change and make things sorted in the blog post before I finally had a shower and tidied up, I also picked out the regen I froze the night before. That would prove useful later on. I also called the family to let them know the plans for today and when I'm coming home. so parents might be picking me up this time.

Then it was on the internet until 9am and getting the blog posts sort of there and done but then it was playing up on the upload. That was my cue to start to leave and pack. Then I got the shower and toilet sorted. Well actually the toilet was seeming to be leaking but I dried some up then had the toilet and shower, slightly hotter this time to prep me for what antics my suitcase will have to do. but then it was that tidy up time.

Then I was about to leave, I saw the chap I saw when I got in and we chatted and he leaves tomorrow, but he said how bad this one was with no sign of the rep which he said it's common practice even though it's illegal to rent a flat then sublet it and not even live in the flat, his main reasons was like there are no mugs in the building and propel have nicked the cutlery. Then by 10:15 I was leaving and out of the Airbnb, I felt emotional but happy in another way. 

Crossing the Tunnel, 

The tunnel to Greenwich was the start of the way back with the start of the fun being with the suitcase. It was struggling to drag, but not chaotic as later on. But the tunnel is amazingly built. the lifts are a great help for this case too.

The exploring of the market was cool too like there was loads of food stalls and some good arts and bespoke pieces but I did see some things for mum to buy . in the end I fix to get her some bits and pieces which was some bracelets and instant gel soil thing. came to £12 in total.

Leaving the Market

Then I dragged my case to go to Greenwich station but my navigation skills were shit so I ended up closer to the Deptford station to get to London bridge but even that was a cancelled so I went to Blackfriars which was the train after. The station was nice and I did see good sights along the way.

Eventually, I get on the train and to Blackfriars, but for £2.50 it's a decent bargain. even if the run after was to nearly swear in London though. 

Bridges to pass

The lines #throughglass

only my way I did have a phone call from a supplier about some mini hyperkin controllers which I will let back to her tomorrow. 

The run

after I got into Blackfriars, I had to run to Victoria, oh my fucking suitcase is dying in the bottom, more plastic fell off and another wheel was stiff, but hey. Things turned out just about when I was running my way to the coach station.

Cards and timings

Trafalgar Square 

Into St James's Park

Eventually after dragging, blisters and shouting, I got to Victoria by 12:45 and then popped to Sainsbury's to get a nice £1.60 lunch. 

The sandwich and drink for £1.60 

The wait and journey, 

Well, it was a massive 30-minute delay in the coach to get on but by 1:15 I was on and the coach left at 1: 20. which I  couldn't edit videos until after people go off at Heathrow. 

Waiting at the gate

I also realised we went in the A4 to get to near Chippenham way to avoid traffic, so new waits of travel before getting into Plymouth by 7:15 which meant I had to kill an hour to get the bus home. She did call and ask if I could pay for her creams for her and her mate, which it is Cheeky of her but one last time I won't say no will be this weekend, so I have that to plan when I got back.

While waiting for the bus, I bought the ticket in the app and that was £3.00 but did take £10 in case the driver refused it and also realised that I want one day recovery so I decided to get the Tuesday off to get the stuff uploaded and edited as well as account and all that, like I really don't think an all night will happen tonight and I want to take it easy before working for 2 weeks straight due to the garden festival on bank holiday .

Time to leave the coach

By 20:10 I was finally on the bus and on my way home. Now to wait while screaming kids had their fun, suitcases to squeeze to a seat and we'll the sunset of the drive to go home. But my worries will be increased tomorrow and maybe more truths to come out sure my parents were going to wait for me by Lidl and wondering what reply to what I've done and the suitcase. And besides, I left the Airbnb at 10:15 and well-getting home by 9:15 will be a long day so working tomorrow straight after will cause massive delays which I want to not repeat a week delay of a plan like last year. But thanks for joining me on this incredible holiday and hope to see you next month knowing my luck.

omracer's Holiday: A Mi Westfield Cycle (Day 4)

So the day has begun to shine, looking cloudy but time to get one of the things I wanted to do in London done as well, visit the Mi store in Westfield. So once I felt ready, that was my plan. The vlog is below

The wake-up, 

Well, I was feeling there tiredness but now I want to take it easy for today before the big events tonight. But here is the room tour, pretty some and shares. the view is nice and fresh which I really wanted as well. But this want until 10:00am since I wanted to get catching up on things

The Bed

The Shared Kitchen

Outside the place 

Then I had a shower and gelled my hair up when I booked the Santander cycles but had to use my China mobile number which actually now got ported so nicely.

The bike ride

A nicely done one indeed, I had to go to different stops to make it under the 30 minutes distance cost. which made it confusing but we'll, I had to try it. Considering the £2 wasn't even activated, it didn't actually cost me on the DAY, only paid it when I installed the app before I left

Heading towards the bike park

The Boris Bikes

Cycling like a glasshole

The Thames

Buildings to cycle pass

Stations to stop at 

Eventually, I got to Gloucester square and HAD the Fanta frozen as well. Man, that was great but made my brain freeze really quickly. just as I got there one of the ladies at plugin was chatting to me since she was a hires filmmaker for them and we chatted and she said it was a good event.

The Fanta Frozen and medium friesd

Then the dangerous cycle to Westfield.

It was dangerous, fuck me, like horns cursing and busses behind me, I could have died if not careful at all. but I got there and it blew me away. But eventually, I got there.

That roundabout before the centre

There was a candy shop on the way in and also the dream drinks, Fanta shokata and also the American cans of Fanta were there as well. But I didn't get any until I was on my way back from the Mi Store which is the only OTHER Shop I went to. Which okay sure it was not ideal but this store had some GOOD DEALS, better than even BANGOOD Prices to be honest.

 Which then lead me to work out the plaas of nearly buying a Redmi 6 and the Redmi 7 was even £159 when it was told to me. The Redmi 6 went to £109 and I was so close to buying,  the Mi-Fit scales were £39.99 and Not sold in the Mi UK store online either. So that was even more tempting but it was really not good to fit in my Rucksack, maybe another day i'l order it from amazon., So I just got the £9.99 bluetooth earpiece instead.

A Mi Good deal

Then I walked my way out of Westfield and went to White city for the old BBC studios which were actually OPPOSITE the shopping complex, But that's now apartments anyway.

Fanta Grape and Fanta Green Apple

Now when checking the tube to go back to island gardens, I realised my balance was low, so i topped up £10 and needed that to get me back which also was needed to get that refund challenged since i didn't tap in Euston for when I first met that amazing girl. I then got to the wrong tube station and ended up Paying £1.50 for that too.

The old Television Centre

White City

Then, I got to the correct station and the Central line to Bank was the next stage before the DLR again. Which was a nice peaceful journey back to the Airbnb?

passing the nice shops
Then I managed to get to see the Thames which was a few minutes walk from the station, it was peaceful in its own way and was nice to see. Then  I finally made it get back and it was then a small kip before an exciting Thiccc Rock night.

The Polish Fanta and the cheap sandwiches, £4.40 for the cost. 

See you then
