    Staying at the holiday inn. Free time until dinner.
    Went for a stroll through the park next to the castle.
    Wondered around until we stopped for lunch.
    Ready for dinner. Massive buffet dinner, only you can order meals and get them made fresh. Finally got my sushi fix.

    Today we went to the British Museum and saw Matilda the musical. We walked to the British museum and I recorded some notes and some photos while I was there. Firstly, (photo below) is a decorated limestone sxarphagus and is a coffin. It said that a boy aged 11-12 years died and put him in there.
    Secondly, the jar in the middle was used to make oil flash and was a perfume pot, made in 1857.
    Lastly, there was a iron tyre that was made in 300-200BC and the next picture is the wheel of the carriage.
    That was all I 📝 recorded down, but I also have another one. The Rosetta Stone had things written in 3languages. 1greek, 1hierogryphs, and the other one was the demotic script. I am happy that I learned that. :)
    I had raw salmon and rice and was deeeelicious!
    I didn't know if I would like Matilda, but I actually did. Everyone did. I got a Matilda Tshirt from Nanny and Grandads money,( thank you!!) Matilda was being played by Lilian Hardy, Miss trunchbull was being played by a man! and my favourite character was the mischievous 😏 🙏🙏(rubbing hands) boy called Bruce I think because he was funny. Very funny. Hahaha! But I realised it was very different from the book because in the book when I read it, it didn't have the part of Matilda's story, or Miss Honey was the actual child of Matilda's story and that Miss Trunchbull was related to her, so that was new to me! Matilda was fun and next I want to watch school of rock!

    Loving Wales! I feel at peace here.
    I didn't realise how badly Ireland Sat with me.
    But Wales, it looks like nz. Lots of hills, rivers, trees and a multi language country.
    This is definitely on the cards for a place to stay.

    Hotel is amazing! The Hand Hotel.
    Went for a stroll then found a courtyard garden as it's vino time!
    Found a love spoon. Got one with a dragon and heart.

    Absolutely love it here.
    I may have found my place xx

    Today we travelled from London to Prague, with a 4 hour delay at Gatwick Airport. Apparently, there was a problem with the plane and they needed to wait for another one to come from Prague.

    Prior to heading to the airport, we had an opportunity to explore Southwark one last time. We stumbled across a small local market and decided to have quick gander at the goods and food on offer. With limited space in our backpacks, there was nothing for people like us, except for a few pastries from the local bakery.Read more

    Now because we're going back to Singapore, we are feeling sad, this 2month holiday was such a good holiday. Going to Hawaii, getting over my fear of snorkeling, helicopter. Princeville Ranch doing the zipline, Then Yosemite going for hikes and walks as well as making smores. America, where we went to Universal Studios, Disney Land and Disney California Adventure riding the cars ride, Harry Potter ride, splash mountain etc, so fun! Then Ireland where we saw everyone and had so much fun with the whole family. France, a trip with Nanny and Grandad, going Paragliding, white water rafting, Kayaking and so many activities. London, going to see Matilda the musical, which was very good. Thank you Daddy and Mammy for letting me go on this fun adventure, it has been so much fun. Thank you for all the things you let me do, even though some may be expensive. A big thank you to Daddy because he worked 10years now and all the hard work has paid off! 😁😁Read more

    We've made it back in one piece. I cant believe it has only been 2 weeks!
    I got upgraded at the hotel 😁. Twin room, more room, more amenities. I've already got a date with the bath.
    We've organized a final dinner with the remainder of the group that are staying in the area. Time for pimms and pie.
    The most exciting thing- room to myself and a 11am check out time!!!!@😁😂😄😅
    There is just a vibe about London that I love.Read more

    Today we have travelled from Hinckley to Newcastle with a 3hr stopover in the city of York....loved this city which is encased in a city wall and buildings date back to the 1500's...I have read novels set in this area, so it was good to be able to see it in the real. Fabulous structures in the buildings.
    Tonight we are staying at Jury's in Newcastle...we are served a 3 course meal tonight, as was the case last night in Hinckley.Read more

    To begin with, it felt like we were re-creating an episode of Ab Fab, visiting Harvey Nicks, Harrods and Selfridges. Not sure who was Eddie and who was Patsy but Ricky felt like a drink afterwards.

    In Harrod's, we had a stickybeak at the Diana and Dodi memorial before getting lost in all of the decadence that surrounded us. To resist the urge to indulge, we quickly exited, dragging ourselves away from the foodhall.

    From high-end shops to high culture, the afternoon was spent under the sun in Shakespeare's Globe Theatre (well, a recreation of it). Being the plebs that we are, we were huddled in the yard, like peasants from seventeenth century England. King Lear was on the menu, with a modern adaptation of the classic play.

    Can't pronounce it as I need to learn Walsh.
    Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch.

    The name translates as "St Mary's Church in the hollow of the white hazel near a rapid whirlpool and the Church of St Tysilio of the red cave".

    Quick lunch stop with a photo op.

    Nz does have the longest place name in the world.
    Why? Why not. Gotta get places on the map somehow.
