Bearthday Adventures!

Hullo! Today is my Bearthday! I am... hmmm... a few years old. Today is a great day - I'm going to meet Beanie at Blackfriar's Train Station and then we are off on a few adventures! Stay tuned and see how the day developed!

I'm hoping my day involves a bearthday drink... Starbucks has a Honey & Almond Hot Chocolate for their Christmas season!! Finally, real drink! None of these PSL's (Pumpkin Spice Lattes) or Mochas or whatever... This is a drink a little bear can sink his mouth into!

So, yes... I did get a hot chocolate!! Beary yummy...

In one of the largest Starbucks I've seen!! This was just the upstairs!! This one was at Tottenham Court Road and comes highly recommended from a little bear - lots of eating and electrical outlets!

Then it was off to find the RV1 bus near Covent Garden. Beanie had asked me to suss out where it went near Blackfriars.... so...

This is where it starts at Catherine Street near Covent Garden...

And it spit me out near Blackfriars Station. It was enroute to Tower Hill... Blackfriars is a beary interesting train station because the platforms are on the bridge, not at the north end or the south end. Beary cool.

So... where's Beanie??? Well... what with not knowing how long the bus would take, we were a tad early...

But Beanie's train was listed! So that was good... just have to be patient and wait...

More later!!

    2. No, I am also a little bear (of the Starbucks variety) and I really love to read about your cool adventures! And by the way, I myself am off to London in a few days time, so I really can’t wait… It all seems so great, with the Paddington bear trail, the red poppies, the yummy macarons… I am beary excited!!!

  3. Happy Birthday, although I thought it was on the 15th of November. Ughhh, seKrebearies are so unreliable. That Starbucks looks huge and it had an upstairs as well. Have fun with Beanie.
