Runefest in London 2011
Rodskaeg was in London 29-30th October for RuneFest 2011, It was a great party. Alot better then 2010.
We started our trip 5pm on thursday at Aalborg Airport in Denmark, we met Laila(Laikrob), sorry, my camera dont like her ;)
Didnt get off to a good start, flight was 1 hour delayed.
After arriving at Gatwick, we took a train to London and another train to Debden station, got here at 0030 am
At Debden Station we met Limparse, we are going to stay at his place til tuesday.
Friday morning we went to London to find "Old Billingsgate" where runefest is held.
Past this solar watch or whatever it is :P
I see they never forgot us Vikings invading England ;)
Only 5 minutes from Billingsgate we past a war Monument for merchants and fishermen lost at sea duing both world wars
Tower of London was also very close to Runefest. Less then 5 minutes walk
HMS Belfast, is a world war 2 museum.
We found Old Billingsgate(old fish marked), not sure how they spell runefest in England, but we dont spell it like that in Denmark. :P
We could see this galleon on the other side of river Thames from runefest, so we just had to see what it was :)
We still had some hours to waste before our dinner with 10 other COE members.
So we walked further down Thames, crossed the walk bridge(Millennium Bridge). Saw this river boat, who said drunk driver ?
Can see the Globe Theatre from the bridge too.
From the bridge we could walk straight to St Paul's Cathedral.
What is this ?? Balls of steel ? ;)
Statue with all names of firefigthers lost life in world war 2.
St Paul's Cathedral.
Still 1+ hour til meeting with COE, so what do you do when you cant find any toilets in London. ?
You go to Herrods, Huge free toilets ;)
Then off to Liverpool station and meeting with COE, had a few drink at the bar, then off to this indian restaurant.
