Sarah and I allowed ourselves to have a very relaxed morning. We hadn't had luxury for a while and we were making the most out of it. After the long, chilled process of getting ready we went out for a wonder around the city. Unfortunately after 10 minutes of us leaving it started pouring with rain. This ended our little explore.
