field trip :: greenwich

Dear Greenwich, I am sorry that I had never visited before. For some reason, I thought that you were far, far away. However, apparently you are only in zone 2! Sheesh!

We visited Greenwich for the very first time last Sunday to say the least. Dating back to 1433, Greenwich Park will play host to the Olympic and Paralympic Esquestrian events. I made a list of places to visit, and we spent the day strolling through the Clocktower Market, Royal Obervatory, National Maritime Museum, Greenwich Park, the Queen’s House and the Royal Naval College including the Painted Hall and Chapel. We grabbed a quick lunch (chicken katsu curry on rice with veg) from the Japanese food stall at the Greenwich Market and then boarded the Thames Clipper for a quick boat ride home. My legs were aching after spending 5 hours on our feet, but what a great day it was! We’ll be back soon. x
