    Friday in London

    September 13, 2019 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌙 15 °C

    Must quickly report Friday before we go off to breakfast - now Saturday morning. It was a great day....we first had a walk around - along Piccadilly, Burlington Arcade, had a pot of tea in Fortnum’s, and ended up in Leicester square to see Downton Abbey the movie. So good!! A feel good movie that anyone who enjoyed the series would love. A continuation of events in the lives of all the people, and gorgeous visually of course. So that was lots of fun, and relaxing, and at 6 o’clock we met Omnia, who is now back in the UK, and going to spend the weekend with us here before we go back to Liverpool with her on Monday.

    So we found an amazing Basque restaurant right near the Novello theatre where we went to Mamma Mia. We had been going to have Italian yet again, but Amr spotted this place and it was absolutely fabulous!! Really special, and not madly expensive, but divine food, and really artistically presented. The only photos of this day will be food!! After that great meal we went round the corner to Mamma Mia....such fun. Full theatre of ABBA fans, and great show, energetic and happy...so altogether a feel good, happy day. Must get ready to go to breakfast!

    Back where we began. London.

    May 30, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌙 17 °C

    Lots to love in London. Up high and down low, inside and out.

    We stayed in Citadines in Holborn for three nights, then at an Air BNB in Pimlico for four nights. Oyster cards meant travelling on the tube or the busses was easy enough. One afternoon we walked from Holborn to Leicester Square to St Pauls and back.
    Next day was mostly with our niece Jess, strolling through Covent Garden and Oxford St. I then shot through to the Imperial War Museum. Nowdays this summarises conflicts across the 20th century, including the cold war and recent conflict in Afghanistan and Syria. A large Holocaust in IWM display presses home that tragic reality.
    Thursday saw us head to the Shard via London Bridge [soon to be touched by tragedy]. We walked the south bank and dropped into Tate Modern.
    Then I tried to buy some concert tickets, which made fresh plans for the rest of the day...

    Lyceum Theatre- The Lion King

    June 13, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Nach dem Essen sind wir zum Lyceum Theatre um unsere Eintrittskarten abzuholen. Danach sind wir noch ein paar Schritte spazieren gegangen, da wir wussten, dass Musical geht relativ lange und wir wollten uns noch die Beine vertreten. Auf dem Weg hat sich Nadine noch etwas Obst gekauft und ich mir einen Donut. Um 19:30 Uhr war der geplante Anfang des Musicals, also wollten wir gegen 19:00 Uhr reingehen.Read more

    Am nächsten Morgen überrascht uns die im Wetterbericht vermisste Sonne, sodass wir in die Innenstadt fahren und an der Themse entlanglaufen. Wir überqueren die Waterloo Bridge, die den weitreichensten Blick über London bietet und gehen nach Westen.Read more

  • Day10


    August 3, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Continua il viaggio e continua nella mia città, dove non posso mancare per più di qualche mese. Toccata e fuga, come spesso accade, ma respirare fa bene al cuore e allo spirito.
    Si torna a Londra, inizio reale della vacanza perché da qui tutto inizia e tutto prende forma.
    Si inizia con un appartamento che si affaccia sulla Tate Modern, con la gente che va a lavorare zaino in spalla e io, vacanziero, seduto alla finestra a sorseggiare caffè. Cielo plumbeo, ma qui la pioggia fa parte del quotidiano e non posso arrabbiarmi se un po' di acqua dispettosa decide di battezzare la mia giornata.
    C'è bisogna di questa parentesi per ricaricare le batterie e per aiutare la mente a sognare ancora. Come sempre finirò per incupirmi perché le toccate e fuga sono solo una parentesi e non la vita reale, ma, come letto, Londra è immutabile, ma, allo stesso tempo, mutante, non ostile, ma semplicemente in attesa di essere scoperta.
    Qui, dove la mia testa viaggia 10 volte più veloce che dalle altri parti, è il posto dove anche sorseggiare un caffè alla finestra fa acuire i sensi e fa guardare il mondo con rinnovata speranza.
