All Go!

Hello hello! I am firstly going to apologise for my very long absence from the Internet. A lot has been going on since last we spoke!

I am officially a LLM student in Belfast now; I've finished my first week now and so far am really enjoying it. I'm studying Human Rights and Criminal Justice and it has been so interesting; I've also met some really nice people already. Also, I have a student card for another two years which means lots more discounts, yay!

Before starting my course, I jetted over to England to visit my boyfriend. He lives in Cheltenham but while I was visiting we did a little travelling.
First of all, we went to Oxford for his aunt's wedding. The weather was absolutely beautiful so the ceremony was held outside in the Italian Garden. Here we are in all our wedding glory.

The day after the wedding, we went to stay with Pete's grandparents who live in Oxford too. We went to the Sheldonian Theatre where the Oxford students have their graduation ceremonies. It has the most wonderful ceiling; I loved it so much, I even bought a postcard of it.

Afterwards, we went punting on the river. It was lots of fun but I was absolutely horrendous at it! I kept steering us into the river bank and squealing because I felt that I was going to fall in! Unfortunately there are no pictures of me punting so here we are again, this time on our little boat.

After our time in Oxford, we went straight to London. Pete's sister bought us tickets for The Woman in Black at the theatre so we went down to spend a few days in the city. Here's the sign from outside the Fortune Theatre in Covent Garden. I loved the show- it was excellently acted and very scary. I'll have a proper review up for you all in the near future.

We went to the amazing Borough Market where I had the yummiest baguette, filled with chicken marinated it herbs- it was delicious. You can also see the Shard in the background.

We also popped over to Baker Street for a little look at The Sherlock Holmes Museum. I'm not really a Holmes expert or even really much of a fan, but it was still interesting nonetheless. 

Before we left, we went for a wander around Carnaby Street and Soho where I spied this mural on a wall.

I love London so much. It's such an exciting city and everything there just seems so much better! I'd love to go back again soon and catch another play- I'd love to see Les Miserables on the stage. And I'll definitely have to do some shopping next time!

Hope you've enjoyed this little snapshot of my trip away!
