London, Travel

From Flowered Trays to Millenium Falcons

IMG_8150I liked interesting buildings, apparently. At least that’s what looking through my photos tells me. So here you are, have lot s of windows and concrete and clouds. Yay!  After looking at fun windows, we went to the V&A where we met a friend of mine, Alex. I think I may have said this before, but the V&A was probably one of my favourite places. Probably because of their flowered food trays.

IMG1033See? Pretty trays that I may or may not have considered trying to fit into my purse. It would have been a super original souvenir. The food, though just a little bit on the expensive side (keep in mind that I am also a broke student and that I tend to eat for like 12£/15€) but oh my goodness so worth the price. We had chicken with baby potatoes, gravy and vegetables, minestrone soup and homemade bread on the side. Actual heaven on a plate.

IMG1044Didn’t take a lot of pictures while I was in the museum and I wish I had just because all the marble sculptures in one of the rooms looked so lovely with everything white and open and there was light everywhere. It really does make such a big difference when things are so aesthetically well set up and easy to look at, as well as interesting.  Which takes us to the Science Museum where I nerded out over the space area. I may never have wanted to be an astronaut or really wanted to go to our space, but I sure as heck was waiting for Han Solo to pick me up on the Millenium Falcon and take me to Luke’s Jedi Academy for training. Plus, as we’ve noted, I’m a sucker for things that are well set up and, as we’ve come to notice in London, the Science Museum was no exception.

IMG1108This was probably one of the weirdest things I have ever seen. They were talking about renewable energy and the middle one is renewable human excrements. Which you know, if it makes the world greener….nah. Nope. Still not packaging it up. Thanks but uh, no thanks.

IMG1103Who didn’t have this watch as a kid? I got mine in first grade, though it was the girl version of this. Which only first grade me would wear because after about the age of 11 or so, pink was just not a thing I liked having in my life.

IMG1112To be honest, I wasn’t exactly sure how much I would like the science museum, mostly because, outside of reading a ridiculous amount of sci-fi growing up and a weird love of biology and chemistry, I never really did the whole science thing. As these things always seem to go, I was definitely surprised and absolutely loved my time looking through all sorts of science-y things. Yay for nerdy things!

Things I’m Loving:

+ If you’re thinking of going to Europe – (Who doesn’t?)
+ Another playlist – (Because music is a good thing for your day.)
+ The global theatre – (The best and worst of World Cup.)
+ Six tips for better sleep – (The more z’s, the better.)
