UK Visit

It has taken a little while, but Sean has found a new job! At the end of this week, we’ll be moving to Dusseldorf, Germany where he’ll join Ubisoft Bluebyte. This meant that our lazy days on the sofa would soon be over so we decided we would make a short trip to the UK whilst we still could.

We left on the Wednesday the 10th of April and arrived in London around 14:00, checked into the hotel and went to see the Tower of London. The Ravens were cool, the arms and armour fantastic but the Crown Jewels were absolutely amazing!! We somehow managed to see most of it before closing time, scuttling over the battlements whilst being herded along by a beef eater closing the gates behind us.

On the Thursday we attempted the Imperial War museum, only to find it closed until July, and opted for the National Gallery instead where Sean was bored whilst I stood drooling in front of Rembrandts.

SThe afternoon was spent at SM&M world (OMG Black M&M’s!) and the Camden markets, followed by Dinner at Pho with Claire and Mark. The Friday we spent the first four hours at the V&A (and what a fantastic place that is!) before heading off for Leamington Spa to catch up with friends and family on the Saturday. It was great seeing a lot a familiar faces and good to hear that for most some positive changes will be coming along. I cannot believe how many people have had a rubbish 2012!

I truly enjoyed the Sunday with it’s early Sunday roast at the Saxon mill, my first time Urban Exploring in bright daylight (thanks to Melysa for being a bad influence and dragging me into Guy’s Cliff!) and a vintage fair as well!
