Today was our power museum day. We intended to hit up both the Victoria & Albert Museum along with the Natural History one.
I met up with Callie, a fellow writer for Soundboard, at my hotel before zipping off to the museums. It was SOSOSOSO nice to finally meet her. She has wonderful taste in music and it’s nice to meet the person behind the blog posts. We headed off to South Kensington to meet up with Vicky.
Once there, the three of us visited the V&A which was extremely vast. We didn’t get through all of it but we did see a lot of very interesting things.
We snagged a bit of lunch afterwards at an italian restaurant and went back to the Natural History museum.
We met up with my lovely friend and fellow Soundboard writer, Rosie, in line. It was a fantastic reunion since I hadn’t seen her for two years. The four of us wandered through the museum together and I got to show them all the ugly stuff that was there. I may not know anything about art, but toss me in a scientific museum and I’m a pig in mud.
Once finished there, we grabbed coffee and talked about the last time we threw up. Lots of laughs much to the chagrin of the lady beside us, I’m sure. It was a lovely afternoon with people I absolutely adore.
We parted ways with Callie afterwards since she had some schoolwork to do. The three of us then left to get some indian food.
Once we had that in a little bag, we zipped off to a “secret venue” called Jamboree. It was a bit of an adventure to get there but once there, we just sat outside and devoured our Indian food.
They were showing the world cup and bands were playing along as commentary (the game was muted). I got to see Germany score the winning goal and thus, win the world cup. Excellent.
I had to say goodbye to Rosie which is always a bummer. But I can honestly say that this won’t be my last time in London by any means.
I made it home without any difficulties, full of food and tired from the day’s activities.
