For our final night in London we met up with a friend of mine at one of her favorite restaurants called Dishoom. It's a beautiful Indian modern restaurant, I loved their decor and the feel of the restaurant. We ordered, at my friend's suggestion Bombay Virgin Pina Colada's to drink, and it was my favorite part [...]
The tour we were on for Windsor and the rest of the day didn't include lunch. There was an option to have lunch with the meal, those were packed lunches and unlike the Total London Experience at the Alberts we couldn't be added to that one. So instead we stopped in the train station on [...]

We ordered the four sauces our waiter suggested and my [...]
For our breakfast after spending some time at Platform 9 3/4 we went to Fiori Corner. It was a nice cafe/restaurant and a great place to gather our bearings for the day. I ordered a cinnamon danish and my cousin ordered a salmon and cream cheese bagel.

Inside I was surprised to find an almond like jelly. It was enjoyable. Delice de France kiosks can be found around London. [...]
After our Hop On Hop Off tour my cousin and I were exhausted, so we went back to our hotel and took a nap. Not exactly what I planned to do on our trip, but it was 100% necessary, since we were struggling to stay awake walking back from the train station. When we woke [...]
