With some free time on my hands today, I took the advice from one of the girls from the Facebook group London Bloggers and ventured down to South Kensington to explore the Victoria and Albert Museum.
Because I’m an awesome girlfriend, for Christmas I bought my boyfriend tickets for the Arsenal Legends Tour. After much research (asking his friend – who is also a ‘gooner’ (Arsenal fan) which legend is better, the Perry Groves Legend Tour was booked.
Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll.
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
William Ernest Henley
Last year Prince Harry visited Colorado for the Warrior Games. The Games gave him the idea to bring a similar idea to London and the Invictus Games were born.
On Thursday I caught up with my Australian mate Nathan.
On Tuesday, a friend and I headed down to the English coastal town of Brighton.
Brighton has got to be one of the most visited tourist beach destinations in the Summer – luckily we went at the beginning of March so it wasn’t all that busy.
The seaside resort town became more popular during the 1700s as some bloke decided to push the idea of drinking and bathing in seawater as a general remedy to illness.
Today I finally ventured into the world of London markets.
Camden Markets are huge! The Adelaide Central Market ain’t got nothin’ on this baby!
