Well, I’m back from my short break to London and I have to admit that the weekend couldn’t have gone quicker! We left early on Saturday morning and arrived in the city centre around lunch time. The first thing we did was check into our gorgeous hotel before going out for a walk and some food. We were both starving after rushing around all morning and skipping breakfast in the excitement, so when my boyfriend suggested a fairly expensive restaurant my purse normally would’ve overruled my stomach but this time I said yes.
London is full of amazing restaurants and I wish I had the time to visit more of them. There’s so much variety, from fast food sushi outlets to celebrity chef owned places and I really love finding somewhere cheap and cheerful around Soho – but Saturday’s trip to Pearl Restaurant was nothing if not exquisite. We had the most delicious French food I’ve ever tasted and it really got our trip off to an amazing start.
Following that, we visited the London Aquarium for a couple of hours before it was time to get back to the hotel and get changed for the show! Anybody who’s started following me on my Twitter account will know that my boyfriend surprised me with tickets to Sister Act and I have to say that this show is really unmissable. Patina Miller is fantastic as Delores and they got the casting just right for all of the other characters. We were totally impressed by how good it was – it just made for a wonderful theatre break.
I really love getting away, even if it’s only for one night. This last weekend was really fantastic and it was great to get away to a completely different environment and soak up the culture. I don’t know what I’m going to do come September and all of my short breaks suddenly come to an end – this weekend I’m going to Edinburgh for a few days to take in the Edinburgh Festival. The highlight will definitely be the Military Tattoo as I’ve never been before, but I really can’t wait to get back to such an amazing city. And at festival time, it really comes to life.
