27 hours and two planes full of screaming children later, London. Yes. Caught a red double decker tour bus today! Approaching Buckingham Palace the tour guide said "oh by the way, London's biggest parade of the year starts in 15 minutes!" Uh yes thankyou. Got off and pushed our way to the front of the barricades. So many handsome horses and furry hatted men with trumpets and armour and tassels and swords. Also the queen in a golden carriage. And Kate/Harry/Camilla. Oh you know, just the royal family on our first day here. After getting back of the tour bus, we saw every landmark. Everything is gold and black and bricks and intricate framework balconies and flower pots and tiny shops. There are also a lot of dragon statues. In fact, there are a lot of statues. Also, black cabs! We bought last minute tickets for Book of Mormon for tonight and ugghhhh so good. So much good.

Oh dear! This airport is so big it has its own currency! And a sunflower garden! In fact, there are gardens everywhere...
The ride over took 8 hours total. We arrived in Singapore at 5am local time. Who eats breakfast at 4am? Apparently us. Also i downloaded game of thrones to watch on the flight, but turns out they had it included in their on flight entertainment!
Not quite sure how I'm still awake on so little sleep. We are currently sitting in the 'ambassador lounge'. Comfy chairs and free wifi! Time to catch up on the bachelorette while we wait for our 6 hour stopover to end. After our next 12 hour flight, we should arrive in London around 8pm? It will look freaking stunning, all the city lights! Lets hope we pass some landmarks on the way to our hotel!
