I’ve been so incredibly busy over the last few weeks, that I’ve hardly had the time to update my blog. My social life has started to take over!
Last Friday I started my weekend off with a visit to Hyde Park’s Winter Wonderland. A very busy day to go! Despite that I still had fun and saw the Nutcracker on Ice. I am wowed by how talented the ice skaters are – it must take so much discipline!
My friends and I had some market food and Mulled Wine. It was absoloutely freezing, and it started to rain, so we decided to head home early.
On the Saturday I went to Highgate Cemetery. It is a hauntingly beautiful place and is one of the ‘Magnificent Seven’ Cemeteries.
We found Karl Marx’s memorial and also did a tour of the West Cemetery.
It was very interesting and I highly suggest going there.
Our guide was excellent and very knowledgeable and took the time to answer any questions we had.
The Cemetery is apparently haunted, and I can see why people think that it is! It isn’t scary by day, but at night it’ll be a different story. All the trees growing over the graves give it a decidedly scary look.
After going to Highgate we decided to go to Kyoto Gardens. I was staying near Wimbledon with my friend (so that we could have a full on tourist weekend – she is heading home soon – all my friends are leaving me!).
Whilst there we witnessed a proposal. It was really sweet – the man was down on one knee (future hubby take note) and had prepared champagne and a little picnic. Very romantic!
