Love alltrust a fewdo wrong to none.”
Some Guy, London, Old Times.

I was still recovering from a horrid cold, but John and I did our best to see all the things in London. Starting with a cute lil’ board game cafe called Draughts. We even met someone who used to frequent the Board Room Game Cafe in Halifax! It is such a great spot with a decent game collection and delicious sammies.

On another day adventure John indulged my Harry Potter lust and we went to the King’s Cross station to Platform 9 3/4 and the Harry Potter Store! So fun!

After geeking out at Harry Potter land I headed over to the British Museum while John went to visit friends. As I was still suffering from stupid cold I thought it best not to visit John’s lovely friends who have a new born baby.

So, my stuffy nose and I went to check out stolen Egyptian artifacts and shit!

Rosetta Stone, bitches!

The collection in this museum is incredible, my pictures cannot do it justice. I went through the Egyptian artifacts as well as the Roman and Greek collection.

There was so much more to see than what I got to, but I ran out of time. Alas!

Next, off to Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre.

Such a treat to go on this tour! We got to hear stories about what it would be like to go to the theatre in the OG Shakespeare days and what it would be like to be a performer as well.

John’s Drawing

Brittney’s Drawing

The Tate Modern had just reopened after some renovations, so it was a little extra busy and it still had that fresh paint smell.

I got to see this wonderful collection from my favourite photographers, Bernd and Hilla Becher.

The Tate is a really neato building too.

Onwards to wander around more of London.

Whelp, add a few pubs, visiting friends, and delicious curries and that’s about all we got up to in London. I would happily visit again. There is so much to do and see it’s impossible to get it all in.

Coming up next: a longer stay in Dublin.
