    Brighton Pier

    August 14 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌧 16 °C

    Brighton im August ist wie Schottland Ende September! Wir haben uns kurzerhand ins ehrwürdige Royal Albion Hotel am Brighton Pier, bzw. in den Pub daneben, einquartiert.
    Gerne erinnere ich mich an den ersten Meeresmaler Besuch hier in 2014, das war damals auch eher schattig:

    Brighton in August is like Scotland at the end of September! We have accommodated ourselves in the venerable Royal Albion Hotel at the Brighton Pier or in the pub next to it.
    I like to remember the first sea painter's visit here in 2014, which was also rather shady at that time:

    London to Cornwall

    August 16 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☁️ 16 °C

    Thanks to Lou and Nat we had a v comfy few hours sleep in cool temps.
    Left Bromley at 8am dragging our bags on a bus, a train and 2x tubes to Paddington - across London in rush hour Friday traffic.
    Boarded the 10.03 train Paddington to Penzance which turned into carnage as the seat reservation systems were broken and the train was rammed. We were lucky enough to get our assigned seats early and arrived in Cornwall at 3.10pm in the torrential rain and 17 degs.
    Met by Mum and Pete and then went for a drink with Jake (nephew) and his gfriend Rhiannon before homemade dinner of my fave cottage pie.

    T+9: Sunday Breakfast and more...

    May 19 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☁️ 10 °C

    Well...
    We thought we had a reservation at JOG. However to cut a long story short we didn’t.
    So we had to change plans and find a new place. As the weather was a bit wet and cold we didn’t want to stay the 6th night in our rooftop tent.
    So thanks to Internet Booking we found 20mls away a place.
    Fortunately it was close to a nice small restaurant and a nice pub. So we had a good evening.

    This morning the restaurant offers breakfast and we went there.

    Sandra had a Full Englisch and I choose Eggs Benedict. Really good choices.

    From now on we will be heading southwards.

    Last day of Scotland

Had some haggis for lunch in a nice little park overlooking a river. took a picture of 3 bridges built in 3 different centuries. Then caught the overnight bus to London.Read more

    6 - London

    August 14 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Tuesday. Our sixth and final stop before heading back home. Why London? Well it was cheaper to fly to London and going back by train to Amsterdam, than have a flight from Bergen to Amsterdam right away. Also I just love London haha.

    We woke up at 6:25 am. Kind of early. Toooo early. We grabbed our stuff and took our stuff and went to the airport. Luckily we all had a flight around the same time so we could go together. We arrived at the airport at 7:30 am and dropped off our bags and went trough security right away. After that we grabbed a coffee and it was already time to leave for London, 9:15 am. After a quick flight of 2 hours we landed at 10:15 am in London. The different time zones made sure we had some extra time. After a bit of a problem with security we got our bags back and jumped on a train to London centrum. Finally at 12:30 pm we arrived at the hotel.

    We sadly couldn’t get into our room but we got to dump our bags, so that was very nice. We quickly took the underground to Oxford Circus. We walked around looking for a place to eat lunch. After some time we ate spareribs on Piccadilly square which was nice. After that we went back to the hotel to check in. We chilled a bit since we were super exhausted.

    After we chilled we went toVictoria station because we were going to Wicked the musical. I was really excited to see this play again since it is my favorite musical ever since I saw it in Dutch when I was little. We had some time left so we checked the Buckingham palace out.

    The play was amazing, it was even better than I could remember. They all did an amazing job and I enjoyed it so much!!

    After wicked we went back to the hotel and got a real nice shower and went for sleep. It was only 11:30 pm but since we stood up very early today and also the time difference made us very sleepy.

    I’m so glad that I went for London. Not only the musical was amazing also London itself. The weather was also suuuuper nice so we got really lucky. Tomorrow is our last day. Weird.

    Walk and High Tea

    June 27 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    After the markets we went for a 6.4 km walk around London to a High Tea restaurant (high tea is basically afternoon tea). We enjoyed a range of pastries such as...pasties and black truffle sausage rolls. We also got given scones with jam and cream. Now at this point I could barely eat any more but I still had 3 delicious cakes on my tray. Finally we got 3 different cakes. As I am allergic to nuts I was given some slightly modified nut free cakes. There was a crunchy chocolate cake filled with cream, a carrot cake topped with a cream cheese icing and a chocolate muffin. After the meal we were completely stuffed and barely made it back home. Tune in tomorrow to see what I’m doing next. Bye!!!!👋🏻Read more

    Bath

    May 12 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Wanneer Martijn zelf een willekeurig weggetje kiest, dan wordt het blijkbaar een doodlopend straatje waar je niet kan keren en die heel stijl is. In z'n 1 had de Terrano het er al moeilijk mee. Later toch nog wat andere mooie weggetjes gekozen en een stukje stad mogen zien
