Europe Trip: Day 8-10 England

England was the final destination for us and was the main purpose for me to visit this Europe trip - my Master convocation. We started our journey from Paris to London by Europe Star. When we reached St.Pancras, we took a train to Leicester where my University located. When we finally settled there, it was around evening. Nothing much for we did for the first day in Leicester but just got our dinner and shop around. Good news for me was, sport shoes over there are pretty cheap; for instant a NIKE basketball shoes just cost you about 30 pounds.

The next day was my convocation and I do not want to talk much about it. Just some ceremony, walked up the stage, took graduation photos, this and that. After done with my convocation, it was time for us to go back to London. Hohoho...

Back to London, first thing we did was going to the Big Ben and London Eye. Then we went to the museum, can't really remember the name but quite big and nice compare to our Malaysia's museum. Then to Buckingham Palace watching the Queen's Guard Band matching to Buckingham Palace for the changing of the guard. Next was the Tower Bridge and passed by London Bridge. However, we did not take any photo in London Bridge as to me it is just a very normal bridge compare to the Tower Bridge. OK, I will stop the crap here and let the photos to do the talking.
