I feel like I’ve been slacking a tiny bit with blogging but that’s because we are still waiting for BT to send our router so we can finally have wifi! It’s a slow arduous process I’m afraid to say! Anyway on Saturday we decided to hop on a bus and a train and head to London for the day! It was such a nice sunny day, really warm and pleasant which was a massive perk! In my opinion there is nothing worse then walking around London in the rain! We are both a tad geeky… so a museum was most definitely on the agenda and we opted for the British History Museum which was massive and very cool! In fact I’ve been told by Will that 95% of things are not actually on display and you could spend days walking around and exploring. It’s huge and you could easily get lost! We just wandered around and saw the ‘headline acts’ which included Ancient Egyptian Mummies and The Rosetta Stone. It was really enjoyable but also a tad overwhelming as the Egypt area in the Museum was swarming with tourists and trips! We started off in the South Asia section! Where we eventually found the fat Buddah! After exploring Asia for a while we headed to Ancient Egypt to find the mummies! There was quite an impressive amount! The detailing on their coffins is insane and so detailed and beautiful! It seemed like everyone had the same idea as us, as every display cabinet was surrounded by people!
After exploring Ancient Egypt we headed for Rome and stumbled across some rather magnificent sights! It seems almost sad that such large chunks have been chopped off and shipped to England and the Greeks clearly want them back! What was a reoccuring theme in this section was there was an awful lot of torso’s with no heads! The heads all seem to still reside in Greece!
We then stumbled across Japan by accident and there was really only one piece that caught my attention!
We then stopped off at Prett and got a toastie and then found a pub near by the Museum which was ironically called the Museum Tavern! Where we got a drink and watched the world go by.
We then hopped back onto the tube to Knightsbridge where we watched a man outside of Harrods eat a metre long balloon, before we got insanely lost wondering around the world famous department store! It was fun! We spent a while in the alcohol section… let’s face it a huge percentage of our relationship involves alcohol.. SorryNotSorry! We then laughed at the ridiculous prices people would pay for their cat and dogs, looked at kitchen that are literally to die for, spent a while just wandering around the toy section where we found a huge sculpture of Harrods made from lego!
It was very impressive! We carried on wandering for a little while before we hopped on a tube to take us to Leicester Square where we opted to stop at Bella Italia’s for a bowl of yummy carbs and a bottle of red before we hopped back on the tube to Paddington to head back to Reading! It was such a lovely day, I would highly recommend the British History Museum and a wander around Harrods! We plan to come back and explore the Dungeons and see the famous blue door from Notting Hill! I hope you enjoyed taking a look at what we got up to this weekend!
Until next time,
Love C xo
