Abbey Road and the Beatles. The two names are synonymous with one another. Ever since I was a child, I have wanted to go to Abbey Road and see where they made the record called, aptly, Abbey Road. I also wanted to see what I call ‘The Beatles’ Crossing’.
Being an expat is fun and it will not be easy to go back to my home country in a few months.
You see, being an expat is dangerous. At first, it is scary and all you want to do is go home, but soon enough you get over that homesickness and start enjoying your time overseas.
This weekend I did something incredibly touristy. I decided to do a London City Walk, which took us all around Southwark and showed some rather interesting landmarks on the way. A lot of the things the guide showed us, I never knew!
Wow, the last few weeks have flown by. It feels like yesterday that my mum and dad flew in. I can’t believe it is their last day here tomorrow as we fly out in the evening to go back to NZ. I am going home for about a month as my sister is getting married.
My parents have come to visit me for Christmas and since some of my mum’s family came from Hockwold before they moved to NZ, we decided to spend Christmas in Hockwold.
On Sunday I went to Borough Market in London. It took me a long time to actually get there (9 months) and I am so glad that I finally went there!
I had a fab day just wandering around and looking at all the different products I could buy. In the end I didn’t buy much, but I did get some delicious tea from a tea stall there.
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!
London is a bustling, busy city that can also be quite lonely. Since moving to the UK, I have spent quite a bit of time in London and recently made it my home.
Wow, what a weekend I had! It was so busy but definitely one of my favourite weekends I’ve had in the UK so far.
London is my go to place on the weekend. It is busy and there is always something to do at the weekend. This weekend I chose to go to Piccadilly Circus – I wandered around for ages and had a fantastic time looking at the beautiful old buildings and the shops.
