Whew! I need a beer. 🙂 Or two. It was a crazy day!
It was another full day in London that started with a quick breakfast of yogurt, cereal, and banana…
And then we made a mad dash to Wembley Stadium – if you haven’t noticed, the Husband is obsessed with stadiums and arenas. Parts of the Underground were closed today for maintenance, and it totally screwed up our timing! We managed to arrived for our grand tour on time, though.
Fun facts about Wembley Stadium:
- Weighing in at a mighty 1,750 tonnes, the Arch – which holds up the roof – weighs the equivalent of 275 double decker buses or ten Jumbo Jets.
- The Arch is 133 meters tall. To put this in perspective, the London Eye could be rolled underneath the Arch.
- With 90,000 seats, the Wembley is the largest football stadium in the world with every seat under cover.
- There are 2,618 toilets – more bathrooms than any other venue in the world! Yay, pee!
It was quite the interesting tour. We saw the queen’s box, the players’ dressing rooms, and other interesting spaces.
The FA Cup:
Afterwards, we walked around Spitafields’ Market. I grabbed a Mint Truffle:
And then we met back up with Chris (the Husband’s BFF from childhood). I love Chris. He’s so easy to talk to. I wish he lived in America!
Quite a few beers were drank. Oh, Pints – I love thee.
And then, the Husband, Chris, and I trooped over to Wagamama’s for a late lunch. So many people recommended Wagamama’s to us that I knew we had to try it out. However, I think I ordered the wrong thing – I hate it when I have menu envy!
We started with vegetable dumplings, which were good:
But my noodle and tofu dish was alright. It didn’t have enough tofu, to be honest.
The Husband and I split another candy bar in the elevator. I’m slowly making my way through every candy bar in England.
Yorkie – it’s NOT for girls because it’s too “thick.” Which makes no sense because if anyone can eat tons of chocolate, it’s a woman.
Tonight’s plans include:
- The ballet.
- The clubs.
Ahh I live so near Wembley!! Have you tried a whispa bar yet? Best chocolate bar by far!
