Had a wonderful time for the remainder of my trip in England.
After the lovely Centre Parcs we drove down to 'meet the family', which included Tim's 98 year old grandmother and his aunt and uncle. Then it was his turn to meet my cousin Mels.
The crazy fast pace of London was a bit of shock after the cruisy lifestyle of Centre Parcs but it still has its charms. We stayed with Mel (thanks Smells) in the heart of the city which also doubled as a viewing platform for prostitutes and their pimps.
Our first day in the big Smoke Tim and I wandered around the streets of London trying to find something which should be valued like gold here - information
I have to say, information centres in Queenstown go above and beyond in the service of giving information compared to London. It took as about 7 attempts at different information centres and at different desks in information centres until we decided to find what we wanted on the internet.
That night we went to a production of Les Miserables for our 9 month anniversary, which was amazing! Love Les Mis (not Les Mills Ali)
Tuesday was to be my birthday treat, Tim took me out to Chessington Theme Park. Such a cool place. We went on every ride and laughed like children all day - it was wonderful! Finally no day would be complete with buy $15 worth of lollies that would make us sick every day after.
The last few days were spent at Tims house and it was great getting to see the place he grew up and all the baby photos!
Had such a wonderful time but on Saturday it was time to go to Split in Croatia and then on to Medugorje in Bosnia Hercegovina.
Sorry, this is a very rushed entry but its time to get outside and enjoy the sunshine.
Hope you're well.
