LIL: Lost In London
Yeah! It is as it is. I was 'quite lost' in London last Saturday. I am this confident girl when it comes to trusting myself in making a choice. However, sometimes my confidence aren't so reliable after all. Ha ha! Anyway, I needed to meet up with my brother on that particular Saturday at a hostel in London. My mistake was, I did not made sure that I remembered the way to that hostel. All I can remember was, to take a tube to Gloucester road. That's it!
A: Victoria Station, London
B: Gloucester Road, London
It was that simple, and I made it to B, but the problem happens after I have reached B. I don't have any idea of where to walk! I was pretty sure that I was doomed. I have tried calling my brother, but I just can't get through. What the heaven? So, I went around the station asking about the hostel. Clearly, the hostel is not famous at all since nobody have heard of it. Again, what the heaven?
I went to ask this mr. Janitor in front of the station, but I just could not bring myself to believe his direction. He did not look convincing at all! Where is a smart-phone when I need one? (for the record, my phone is just a classic, normal phone) I needed Google map, right now! In the end, I called my friend back at my university hall to Google the hostel for me. Gosh, what a pathetic loser I am.
I ended up walking for what I've felt like a thousand miles, alone, before reaching the 'famous' hostel. I made it anyway, so yay me! All my pieces are still attached, and I had a great, tiring weekend at London with my brother, and friends. I will make sure that I won't lost next time! Go, me! Ha ha!
P/s: Give me a ring when you are thinking of visiting next time, I'm pretty sure that I am now a full fledged tour guide. Ha ha!
Cheers, love. :)
