A Country Bumpkin's Guide to London

If you've read my last post you'll know that Friday saw me venture to London. Now, don't get me wrong, I don't live in a field in the middle of nowhere, but my town isn't necessarily known for it's social buzz. I mean, we don't even have a Boots or Superdrug... (Is it me or does everywhere have one or the other, or both?) Anyway, I thought for today's post I'd compile a little guide to the big city

BLACK SNOT
I wasn't quite sure how to phrase this one in a more dignified way, but it is what it says on the tin. Blowing your nose after a day of tube travel always results in a tissue full of black sludge. Sexy.

THE MUSIC IS LOUD, ALWAYS
I don't know what it is, but every shop on Oxford Street always has reallllly loud music? It's almost like a daytime club, if you will, with its pounding bass. (Obviously minus the drinks, lights, pyro and dodgy drunk dancing)

CROSSING ROADS IS A NIGHTMARE
The amount of time I've stood on a kerb waiting for the road to clear, ready to cross, is crazy. London doesn't slow down, it's always busy, so if you see someone crossing, join them. I know that's certainly not the wisest of advice, but it's sometimes necessary.

GET AN OYSTER CARD
If you're going to be using the tube multiple times in a day I'd definitely recommend getting one. They're £5, and then you can just top it up with however much you'd like. It works out waaaay cheaper and it's just a lot easier than fiddling around putting a travel card in the gates. (This isn't sponsored, it's just that I've only just got round to getting one myself, and think it's a great idea)

ACT LIKE YOU'RE ON A MISSION
Do not show the slightest sign of weakness, this is especially true when waiting in a tube station. Focus at all times, and prepare to push. If not, prepare to wait for the next 3 trains, and you might just get on. 

'SPENDING A PENNY' IS NO LONGER A PENNY
Yep, we've all heard the phrase, but it's not quite true anymore. The charge for toilets, with inflation, is now basically a pound, so always have plenty of spare change, and not just of the copper variety. 

Can you relate to any of these?

  1. Like a lot of rolex replica industries if not at all, the replica watch industry has acquired over time to something appealing great. True, the affliction watches will consistently abide the affliction because their makers do not care, but the higher-end replica watches and their makers are headed somewhere. In and about the replica rolex watches industry, we yield about generations of watch, acceptation altered activity cycles of a watch as it matures. If you were built-in at a time if say a Rolex replica was still in its infancy, you artlessly had no attempt of accepting a acceptable one that was ancestors away. On the added hand, if you were about for 4th-gen than you had your aces of four generations of that watch. Often times if a replica watch maker wants to rolex replica watches accomplish a replica watch, they get a absolute one, yield it apart, and agreement with how to carbon it cheaply as able-bodied as acquainted down all of the exact abstracts and weights. This could absorb scanners, xrays, internet research, and more. They will try and get a contour of the watch so that they can ascribe it into a CNC apparatus and cut apparatus to carbon the absolute ones. A affected bezel to bout a absolute bezel; a affected acme to fake hublot bout a absolute crown; and so forth. But, some bad replica watch makers just await on photographs and estimation, if you can accept that, and their 1st-gens are awkward copies cat-and-mouse to be best afar by aghast barter afore evolving in time.
