We then took the local bus and went to Wembley, the Indian area.The local bus is the best way to travel around nearby locations. There's a well maintained mobile application that tells you where exactly a particular bus is and which bus you could use at a particular moment to travel from one location to another. It is very very easy and completely user friendly. You enter Wembley and you can see lines of Indian food stalls, even a stall for Pani Puri. It instantly caught my eye and I went straight up to grab a plate. I was conversing with my mom in Gujarati and turned out the owner understood it, cuz he was a Gujarati too. The happiness of finding someone from your home state in a foreign land is inexplicible.The 2nd day began with some really delicious breakfast prepared by my aunt. In London, there are houses where there a number of rooms and each room has a different family staying. They use a common kitchen though. This way, it isn't hard to find accomodation in London. My father told me about an early morning stroll he went on, around 6am, when I slept peacefully. The coffee shops were open and he began with grabbing a quick coffee and then walked to the nearby park. The park had a few gyming equipment kept and a lake nearby had a bunch of beautiful swarms.

The best way to get around England would be to book your stay in its magnificent capital city, London. Of course, your stay here might be slightly more expensive than in other places, which aren’t so main stream. But you will certainly appreciate the ease with which you will find frequent transportation to all other parts of the country.

On the way back to Rotterdam, everyone slept in the car but I was awake. I was awake because I had a lot to be grateful for today. I realized that the things you want dearly may be are denied to you only temporarily, may be they come back to you in a way that proves to be much better than it would have been earlier and that ultimately no one except God can deny you the happiness you want for yourself.

Then, we booked accommodation in Liverpool (£30). Moose cafe for breakfast. The best breakfast I had! IT IS SO GOOD. I want to book a ticket to Liverpool just for this! That salted caramel pancakes with poached apples.. £7 if I'm not wrong! Huge portion!

For example, from London (Marylebone), a journey can be as low as £6 one way if you choose the right time. If nothing looks cheap, try looking up the price from your destination to Birmingham - strangely, it will sometimes me much cheaper to buy a ticket to Birmingham and then a separate one to Stratford-upon-Avon, rather than buying one ticket. This, of course, makes no sense, but there we go - I paid £17 + 7 from Pwllheli, rather than the £56 I was quoted when I searched for Pwllheli-Stratford.

Since we had a comfortable overnight journey, today we were all fresh and ready to have an exciting day ahead. Today, we are supposed to go to Oxford city in south east of London. It is a 2 hour train journey from London and we reach Oxford by 10 am. There was a city bus tour here again, but since we had the entire day to spend in Oxford our preferred choice of exploring the place was by walking around. We took a map of the city from the train station and we labeled the route we had to take, it was a circular walk around the city.The buildings in Oxford demonstrate an example of every English architectural period and its known as the "city of dreaming spires", a term coined in reference to the harmonious architecture of Oxford's university buildings. The University of Oxford is the oldest university in the English speaking world. Our walk leads us through the heart of the historic city centre illustrating in itself the history of Oxford and its university and the map in our hand gave us the description of the architecture and traditions of its most famous buildings and institutions. Even though I was not a good student myself or much of a book reader, I felt it was a prolific day spent in Oxford, a city also prominent for its medieval university. Our day ended with some good coffee and we reached back home in London at around 8 in the evening.
