Hello. This blogger has returned. Sorry for the lack of posting but I’ve been busy… very busy on holiday in Europe.
12 days. Two countries Four airports. Eight train journeys. One bicycle ride.
First stop: London, England.
A chance to re-energize with the motherland and absorb all things British. This year, 2012, is a double-celebratory year for the Brits – the year of the Olympics and Queenie’s Diamond Jubilee (60 years on the throne). Apparently also the year for stringing up bunting and bearing the Union Jack in any place possible.
“Re-energizing in all things British” is simply code for eating a lot of mini-cheddars, Cadbury Twirls and drinking dry cider guilt-free. It also was an excuse to hassle as many circles of friends as possible during the short time I was there.
I was lucky enough to be invited to the wedding of a very, VERY good friend and partner in crime; Kate. She was marrying her childhood sweetheart Tom. The ceremony was located close to the banks of the River Thames by Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre. During the ceremony we could see the London skyline with views of St Paul’s cathedral and Millennium Bridge. Perfect for a nostalgic ex-pat.
To be continued….
[* last photo is a cheat – I was so excited to see Kate and Tom get married that I forgot to take any photos; this photo was used courtesy of http://deepakg.blogspot.com]
