So, myself and my mum had the 10th August free for a long time and we knew that we would spend the day in London but doing what we was not sure? We had many plans from visiting Alexander Palace or Hampton Court Palace, but both being booked up we decided what about a musical? Looking online a few weeks before, it was hard to find two tickets that were not incredibly expensive, until we saw Mamma Mia! My mum had seen it before but she said she saw it in 2000 so 17 years ago!! And I had never seen it so we both thought yes lets go! I had watched the film at the weekend and I was singing a long and getting super excited. If you have not seen it I would 100% recommend both the film and the musical if you have the chance!!
Waking up at 4 am with my eyes half shut to get ready was a challenge, but was made easier by the thought that TODAY WE WAS GOING ON HOLIDAY! I think the most exciting part of going away is getting up at an ungodly hour to head to the airport! I hate it when you have to wait around all day, so I was more than happy to jump in our taxi at 5 am to leave for Stanstead airport!
Once again we woke up in our beautiful hotel in Paris and were both happy and sad that we were still in this wonderful city, but in the evening we were returning home after such a lovely few days. We were packed, up, and ready to have the early afternoon exploring more of the city. Our main idea for our last day was to go into both the Louvre Museum and Musee d’Orsay.
Now due to the day being so busy, I do not joke that there are only a small small select few of photos in our previous post so here are the others!! Enjoy.
We woke up in our big comfy bed excited to see Paris and for me especially the Eiffel Tower!! We were up, ready and out by 10-am heading towards the Louvre Museum as we wanted to head to the river. Our hotel was roughly a 20 minute walk and took us through some little streets that we would not have seen otherwise.
I and Cole were both lucky enough to be invited to the Gin Festival in Nottingham! The festival was founded in 2013 by a couple from Leeds, and now it is a non-stop tour around the UK and one of the biggest gin festivals! And I can see why! It was so much fun with over 100 gins to try, cocktails to taste, masterclasses to watch and music to dance too! Being an avid gin lover myself this festival was right up my street and made such a nice different to my cheap gin from Tesco (being a student I have to, unfortunately, budget on my alcohol choice!). So being able to taste all these delightful gins in so many different flavors was so so delish!
