Jez and I arrived in London on Thursday morning from NYC! London is wonderful, a lot cooler than New York!! We’ve been staying with Jez’s cousins Paul and Kat here in Reigate, just south of London. Again, we chose to fly overnight to our destination and paid severely for it. We were full of energy when we got off the plane, when we got to Reigate, and even when we decided that it would be a great idea to catch the half hour train into London. We jumped on the train and at the exact moment that we sat down, we wanted to sleep. Jez and I wandered around the city in a daze for about 90mins before we decided to head home.
After that, we slept for about 18hrs straight!
On Friday night we went in to town for dinner in Covent Garden but at the last minute, Paul was able to get tickets to see Sister Act at the Palladium theatre. It was such a great show, very funny and a fantastic set!
I was able to catch up with my cousin who has been living in the UK for the past 6 years. He’s living in East Dulwich which has some lovely shops and pubs. We were even able to spare some time for some fantastic fish and chips (mushie peas included!)
We head off to Ibiza in the Balearic Islands next for week of late nights and sunrises – I think I’ll have to learn a few Spanish words on the plane!
