London Day 15 & 16: Tower Of London, Tower Bridge, Les Misérables & Goodbye

3 months later, I’ve finally complete my 2012 European travelogue. This is the last installment. Wohooo!

Here goes…

This is one of the morning where we went out for breakfast. Seriously if you want to save $$ for food due to high Pound and Euro, buy those sandwiches or bread or salad from grocery shop rather than eating out which will cost 2x to 3x higher.

We reached TKTS at Leicester Square about 10.30am and was expecting long queues but thankfully there were not many people. We took a bad turning (my bad for the navigation hence the nearly 1 hour walking journey! Haha).
