Our trip to UCL- open day 2012 - Part 2

The next morning, we checked out at 9.30 a.m. and had our breakfast at Mcdonald's  then we went to Euston Station to store our hand carry bag and per bag cost us £8.00 per day. From here we went to Camden Market, then Emily had her to go to visit the open day at the university where Alexandra McQueen  graduated. I am not sure whether the University Saint Marins college of Art & Design as we were not invite to go along.

We went to Harrods instead. Shopping for half an hour we decided to take a break at a cafe to wait for them. While waiting for them I took some street photos. Then Emily text Trixiebella to meet her at Oxford Street - Top Shop. In Oxford all the high street stores are having July grand Sales and even Harrods also having the sales on.

Instead of shopping, we waited for them outside the Top shop while waiting for them, I took this opportunity to took some street photos as I have never attempt to do so. After an hour been told they were still trying the clothing we went to Leicester to have our lunch and dinner. It was easy to go to the China Town but unfortunately, we were lost when getting back to the underground station,

Asked for directions,  due some problems with the trains and also rush hours. Our train leave at 6.25 p.m. and Emily and her mum already at Euston Station. Unfortunately for us, we reached the station at 6.35 p.m. and rushed to the platform but the train just closed the doors and we missed the train. Emily and her mum were on the 6.35 p.m. train but we were not.

We been told there will be another train departed at 6.45 p.m. and asked for which platform then went to catch this train. This train reached New Street, Birmingham, then we had to change another train from there to Lichfield which there was no extra charges on the ticket.

Lucky all end well, we reached the Lichfield Trent Valley at 10.45 p.m.  which 3 hours later and my husband came and fetch us back home. Oh! what at night but I have never enjoyed myself so more that if I have to go again then I will be happy to do so again.

Places of Interest: Euston, University College London, Victoria & Albert Museum, Harrods, Camden Market, Oxford, King Cross, Leicester Square - China Town.
