Westminster to Greenwich

Hey guys welcome back, first of all want to apologies for not posting the last couple of weeks, been super busy behind the scenes. I am back now and this week there will be two posts to compensate you!

Olà Malta bem vindos, primeiro queria pedir desculpa de não ter postado nas ultima semanas, tenho andado ocupada atras disto. Mas voltei e esta semana saira dois posts para Vos compensar!

Who has been to London or lives in London, and gone on the River Themes cruise?I have been twice now, once many years ago with friends and this time with family. Both times went to the same place but i just love it.

Quem ja esteve em Londres ou vive ca, ja foi ao cruseiro do Rio Themes? EU ja fui duas veses, a primera vez a muito anos atras com amigos e agora desta vez com a familia. Ambas as veses fui para o mesmo sitio e adorei.

So we decided that for the long weekend we would do something different, i booked the cruise tickets which really was not expensive for the type of cruise we got, i was expecting those little boats that hardly has any coverage and you feel the water splattering at you. We paid £14 each to go from Westminster Pier to Greenwich, we sat inside where there was long tables, bathrooms, a bar and was so warm thank god. Then if you wanted you could go to the upper deck of the cruise where obviously the view is much better, they had sitting area too and a little cover in case it rained which thank god it did not! The journey to Greenwich took bout 1h, the tour guide tells you what monuments you are passing and their history, (not that we paid any attention to it).

A familia entao decidio que no fim de semana Longo iamos fazer algo diferente, entao marquei os bilhetes que sincerament nao foi caro para o tipo de barco que nos calhou, EU estava a espera de estar nos barcos pequenos que nao tem muita cobertura e sentes a agua e ficas toda molhada. Pagamos £14 por cada pessoa de Westminster Pier ate Greenwich, ficamos na part de baixo do barco onde havia muita mesas, casa de banho e um bar e estava Tao quentinho la dentro gracas a deus. Em cima entao ers tudo aberto e a vista Linda… mas estava frio entao nao fiquei la muito tempo. O cruseiro afe Greenwich demora uma hora, e temos um guia que nos vais dizendo onde passamos, que historias is predios e barcos tem (nao que a gente tivesse tomado attencao).

Inside the cruise

Me and the niece

Picnic time

Mummy and daughter

when we got to Greenwich, we walked around to find a place to have a picnic (even dough the weather was not a picnic one, but mum wanted to have one), we walked around a big park and found a little corner where the wind was calmer, we took out the food and dived in to it!

Quando chegamos a Greenwich, caminhos a procura de um sitio para fazermos o picnic (embora on tempo nao fosse bom para isso, mas a Mae Mae queria entao a gente fez ne), entao encontramos um parque e num cantinho onde nao batia o evento, a gente atracou-se a comida!

My brother in law loves history and all the old buildings, so as excepted he had googled important stuff to see, we walked up to the Meridian Line, which at the time i had no clue what he was on about and we all looked so confused, it was a long climb to get to the so called LINE, half way up i was out of breath (how unfit am i ), but the view….was amazing! You could see so much from up there, the green, the buildings, the fresh air! I am a fresh air nature person, so views, parks and water is where i love to be!

O meu Cunhado ama historia entao ele ja sabia os sitios onde queria ir, ja tinha visto no Google e la fomos nos atras dele, a subida para chegar ao Meridian Line era Tao grande que EU chegei a meio Caminho tive de parar que eatava sem folgo e nem sequer sabiamos porque estavamos a subir aquilo todos estavamos confusos atras dele. Bem a vista la de cima era Linda, maravilhosa adoro tudo que tem haver com natureza, Campo, agua. E la que me encontram!

We walked around the Meridian line, there is a section that you can actually stand on the line but we had to pay for that,(we cheap so no-one wanted to go in). The day started to get cooler so we made the way back to the pier to catch the cruise back to Westminster, (the ticket was return too), seemed to take less time going back, i do not really know if it was because they wanted to get back faster as the trip was coming to an end or if it was because the river was rising, we could see the water was higher on the outside of the cruise. Anyhow we got back to Westminster and made our way back home. Was a great day out, i really do recommend it as a family trip but if possible maybe best in the summer so you can see the view from the upper deck and not freeze your butt off!

Caminhamos por la, e ah uma seccao que podes meter os pes na linha Meridian mas era preciso pagar, entao como somos forretas niguem quis la ir. Para o fim o dia comecou a refecer entao comecamos a caminhada de volta ao barco que nos leva-va de volta a Westminster, o bilhetes ja incluia voltar para traz. Parece que demoramos menos tempo de volta a Londres do que quando fomos, nao sei se era porque queriam chegar mais rapido para poderem ainda levar mais gente ou se era por o nivel do Rio estava a subir e a agua ja molhava o barco todo. Chegams Rapids como Disse, e de la a casa e um saltinho. FOI um dia muito bem passada wm familia adorei! Se ainda n fizeran entao e um trip que EU rexomendo, mas se possivel facam na altura do verao vai saber ainda melhor xok o solzingo e poder ir na part dr cima do barco sem ficar com o cu congelado!

That was my day trip,hope you enjoyed this post and i will see you on my next post. Thank you for all the support and being here to read and give me the feedback.

E pronto este e o post de hoje um piuck de mim e do meus dias com a familia, espero que Denham gostsdo. Mais uma vez obrigada por todo o apoio que me Dao. Ate o proximo
