Honeymooners (at last alone)

After the excitement of the wedding we stayed at Apex London Wall Hotel (fantastic hotel). We had our first honeymoon day wandering around the City seeing a few of the better known sights.
(Click on the photos to go and read about our days at the Occasional Tourist).

On Monday we stayed at home; we had memories to gather and our wedding gift delivery from John Lewis to wait for.

Tuesday we stayed local and took a trip down to Greenwich to the Cutty Sark and the Old Royal Naval College.

Wednesday was my birthday (yes four days after our wedding, Husband's birthday is four days after mine!). So we had another day at home... there were some deliveries to deal with again and I had the new Tomb Raider for my Xbox (husband bought it for me, so he was fine with the temporary dessertion!).


Thursday and next stop, London Zoo. Lucky we had a late start and made for Baker Street as we'd both forgotten that the Ashes were starting the 2nd Test at Lords. 

Friday, after the exhaustion of the zoo we went to the British Music Experience at The O2, another local day out - delightfully air-conditioned.

Saturday was a grey and dismal day (although still warm enough) and we took a trip on the Clipper to the London Eye and back.

To round out our week it was Husband's birthday; so we spent our time on the sofa of sloth, watching the Hungarian Grand Prix; gathering our energies for Honeymoon week 2!
