05/11/15 – Bonfire night!

Dan, Alana and I headed to Crystal Palace tonight to see the fireworks! They were super impressive as always, and I had a lovely falafel wrap – bonus! Off to Scotland tomorrow so today was a busy day trying to get everything done in time. We’re ready though! Time for bed as I have aContinue reading “05/11/15 – Bonfire night!”

09/11/2013 – Christmas is Coming to London!

  Lovely day today! I got the overground to Hackney to visit a vintage market/fair. I didn’t end up buying anything, but it was nice to explore somewhere new in London. Decided to get the bus back to central London, as sometimes it’s nice to just watch the world go by. Met up with aContinue reading “09/11/2013 – Christmas is Coming to London!”

02/11/2013 – It’s Bonfire Night!

Well, not quite, but it was for me! I have my friend’s birthday plans on the 5th so I went to see the Morden firework display!

29/08/2012 – Round two: Paralympics!

Tonight was the opening ceremony of the Paralympics! We know this from the amount of helicopters that have reappeared around Bow area, but we’re happy to see fireworks again. I’ll be sad when it’s all over, it’s been great fun. And I’m looking forward to catching some of the upcoming events!

12/08/2012 – Olympics Closing Ceremony

Well this certainly says it all. Tonight was the closing ceremony for the London 2012 Olympics. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed living in such a prime area for being surrounded by the Olympic atmosphere, and tonight was no different. After a lazy day around Bow, we decided to stay in and watch the ceremony from our balcony with aContinue reading “12/08/2012 – Olympics Closing Ceremony”

27/07/2012 – Olympics Opening Ceremony!

So tonight we watched the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics, and it did not let us down! We really enjoyed it, and felt really patriotic! The fireworks were fantastic at the end, and this by far is my favourite photo I took! We didn’t expect the red statue to have fireworks also, greatContinue reading “27/07/2012 – Olympics Opening Ceremony!”
