Hello everyone! I’ve just gotten back from my trip to the UK and it was super fun! I think my family made it like super funny – I’ve got a whole list of mental quotes I’m dying to talk about but I can’t because, well, they kind of rate 100 on the Inappropriate Scale of 1-10. LOL
But the trip itself was amazing. We spent two days in London: the first on a city tour of the usual works, St Paul’s Cathedral, Tower of London, a ride on the London Eye, Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, the Thames River etc; and the second shopping on Oxford Street and touring a museum – I believe it was the V&A.
Apparently it’s summer over there. But the temperature was like 14C. LUCKILY we checked before heading over, else we’d have gone with like sun dresses and shorts because we, being Singaporeans, think that Summer is all like
14 degrees is like freaking antartica for me LOL. But it’s okay! We were okay! The heatwave hit the day before we left though.. so that was kind of unlucky for us. But oh well.
We headed north after London, visiting Bath, Stone Henge, Cambridge, followed by Lake District, Edinburgh and York. None of which were at all disappointing. Each area was just so beautiful and full of history which blew my whole family away because you don’t get that in Singapore! Okay you do, but not as much.
And they were all (apart from London) so blissfully spacious! No squeezing with people on the streets or having sticky arms brush against mine *shudders*. Super awesome.
I don’t have many pictures, obviously, because I never really do take a lot of photos. I have maybe like 12 photos in my phone and that’s only because Tim begged me to take photos for him LOL.
It’s strange but I just believe in being in the moment rather than looking through your camera lens all the time and worrying about whether your photos are going to turn out nice. I mean, some photos for memories sake are good and all but I just don’t think we should overdo the whole phototaking thing. But that’s just me.
Oh not to mention that I suck at taking photos. They always turn out too dark for some reason.
But here they are anyway!
Okay that’s all I took up until Edinburgh! This is why I am never the official photographer for the family. I’m more concerned about funny stuff than I am about proper pictures LOL.
Here are the photos I took on the way back to London. We stopped by York :)
OOH I got a pic of me in my new shades that I got from Oxford Street though!
Okay that’s really it! Bye y’all!
Thanks for reading!
