Or bachelorette party, depending on where you’re from.
Kadek took me to Sealife London, where they hold an event where you get to drink alcohol and go around the aquarium in the night time, no children allowed!
We were given an incredibly fancy room by the hotel. The mattress was so dang thick that it was literally the height of a table for me and climbing onto it was quite an adventure. I loved being able to not only watch live TV (although the subtitle function didn’t work), but watch the Horror channel in particular! Also Judge Judy on CBS Reality!
The bummer of the trip was that there was a woman storing her folding rollator in the wheelchair space on the train, but she didn’t want to fold it, she left it completely assembled, and so I had to sit literally in the middle of the aisle, the bit where people walked, and it was a bit of a nightmare.
I envisioned carrying my holdall around on my lap, and while this did work, it was harder than I expected on my left bicep, which is just insisting on giving me a sharp pain every time I move it.
Also my butt and thigh muscles ridiculously hurt, I can only imagine this is from sitting upright for so long in one go during both train journeys, and using my muscles to resist all the bumps and shaking. We did way too much travelling in a 24-hour period and I am legitimately exhausted, but I had a really good time.
[PS: After looking at the preview of this post, it seems that some pictures have turned themselves upside down or on their sides. I don’t know why.]
I love souvenirs!
Here are some better quality photos that I stole from Kadek:
Back in Andover, we detoured to the Lidl to pick up some cool shit we saw advertised on TV at the hotel.
Kadek also went over my roots with more henna. I am a natural redhead but I want to be a bit brighter for upcoming events.
As well as a barrage of rocket attacks into Israel, 11 Jews were murdered at a synagogue in the USA this weekend. I’m so tired of feeling that sting of grief all the time ??.
