Eurotrip Day 5: London HSL Zoo

Can never go to a major place without visiting the Zoo, doh, we are professional Zoobyz.

My second International Zoo!

London Zoo is the world’s oldest scientific zoo. It was opened in London on 27 April 1828, and was originally intended to be used as a collection for scientific study. In 1831 or 1832, the animals of the Tower of London menagerie were transferred to the zoo’s collection. It was eventually opened to the public in 1847. Today, it houses a collection of 673 species of animals, with 19,289 individuals, making it one of the largest collections in the United Kingdom. The zoo is sometimes called Regent’s Zoo.

It is managed under the aegis of the Zoological Society of London (established in 1826), and is situated at the northern edge of Regent’s Park, on the boundary line between the City of Westminster and the borough of Camden (the Regent’s Canal runs through it). The Society also has a more spacious site at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo in Bedfordshire to which the larger animals such as elephants and rhinos have been moved. As well as being the first scientific zoo, ZSL London Zoo also opened the first reptile house (1849), first public aquarium (1853), first insect house (1881) and the first children’s zoo (1938).

ZSL receives no state funding and relies on ‘Fellows’ and ‘Friends’ memberships, entrance fees and sponsorship to generate income.

Eurotrip Day 4: Harry Potter Studio Tour, London, United Kingdom!

Check out my video slide show of visiting Warner Bro Harry Potter Studio Tour in London! It was an amazing time, be sure to watch the films! I regret not watching them, however I recently finished watching all 8 of them and I saw stuff going “Hey! I saw that!”. Was a totally rad experience and worth it for any fans to check out. The butter beer wasn’t nearly as good as Orlando’s but it’s still tasty. Also the chocolate frog hot chocolate is some of the best liquid I’ve ever drunk. Watch it below! I figured it would be easier for video than a blog post.

 

Day 3 Cont: Exploring London, Fish & Chips, Fortnum & Mason & More!

So after the Tower of London I had this Fish & Chips place bookmarked for months before to check out, even though it was about an hour away we had to make it happen.

Also, a lot of photos so check it out of our journey below!

Forgot the name already, but here we have a beautiful Fish & Chips Dish! I could eat this daily, people take for granted some of the most amazing things in life!

Eurotrip Day 3: Tower of London, A REAL CASTLE

Today’s the day. Growing up playing Medieval Games, Castle Sims, Keeps, Dragons, I FINALLY GET TO SEE A REAL CASTLE! That did real castle shit, lol. Tower of London! Literally one block from my hotel (now sleeping in a castle, that’ll have to come real soon).

The Tower of London, officially Her Majesty’s Royal Palace and Fortress of the Tower of London, is a historic castle located on the north bank of the River Thames in central London. It lies within the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, separated from the eastern edge of the square mile of the City of London by the open space known as Tower Hill. It was founded towards the end of 1066 as part of the Norman Conquest of England. The White Tower, which gives the entire castle its name, was built by William the Conqueror in 1078 and was a resented symbol of oppression, inflicted upon London by the new ruling elite. The castle was used as a prison from 1100 (Ranulf Flambard) until 1952 (Kray twins),although that was not its primary purpose. A grand palace early in its history, it served as a royal residence. As a whole, the Tower is a complex of several buildings set within two concentric rings of defensive walls and a moat. There were several phases of expansion, mainly under kings Richard I, Henry III, and Edward I in the 12th and 13th centuries. The general layout established by the late 13th century remains despite later activity on the site.

It’s like real. TO THE KINGDOM!

Eurotrip Day 2: LeadenHall Market & Skygarden

This might be a posh shosh of 2 days not 100% sure, the Jet lag is real. We stayed at a hotel right next to the Tower of London, my first real castle and it was awesome! If your in London, be sure to check out the tower of London! Lot of photos incoming!

Our hotel was near some awesome sights within walking distance. We started to explore and I busted our TripAdvisor and we were trying to find the Leadenhall Market, off we go!

We found it! Even the little hitching posts had shields/crests on them, this was totally awesome. I was already in Love with London and all the history and the medieval feel to it, was so badass.

Las Vegas 2018: Hell’s Kitchen, E-Sports Arena, United First Gluten Free

Heres a photo video slideshow of my latest trip to Las Vegas. Checked out the new Luxor E-Sports Arena, had a full lunch at Gordon Ramsay’s newest spot Hell’s Kitchen at Caesars Palace. Also flew United First class and experienced a gluten free dinner meal. Also tried a new spot at Paris “The Eiffel Restaurant”, was so good. Paris Casino is in fact the best gluten free casino in Las Vegas period.

Final Day in Florida: Universal Studios Adventure & Hogwarts

Couple things, why the fuck did they change the recipe of the butterbeer, it tasted like garbage the day we went. That is my main complaint for the entire day at Universal, it had me so mind boggled. The foam on top was shitty as well and not that candy flavor. Bullshit. Anyways, let’s begin!

Here we go! The famous Universal people movers, gotta love them. Wish Disney would implement some cool ones.

 

Got dinner reservations here, can’t wait. Already hungry.

WDW Trip Report Day 4: Guided Fishing Excursion

If you have ever wanted to go on a guided fishing excursion at Walt Disney World I will present you with some knowledge. It can be a fun in the sun adventure if you love to fish and the outdoors. You typically wake up at 9AM and meet up with your guide at the resort around 10AM and off you go, the resorts vary.

Contemporary Resort Docks

This time we met up at the Contemporary Resort Docks.

They go over a few basic rules then you launch out. I’ve been three times on this excursion. The first two times were awesome, the feeling of being VIP cruising through Seven Seas Lagoon and around the resorts is amazing and refreshing while in Florida.

mini jet boats

Screw the fishing guide, I wanted to go on a mini jet boat so bad!

Our last adventure our guide Sean was a total asshole, don’t know how he even has this job. If you get a good guide everything is awesome and fun, usually they bait your hook, help you cast, teach you the good spots, etc. This guy was like a lazy piece of shit who didn’t say or help worth a shit, and then when we asked he was just was so apathetic it was useless to even bother. However we still had a great time. It costs around $300 for 2-5 people for 2 hours and then your suppose to tip your captain as well. Check out the photos below for the fishing adventure.
