So, this time I decided to visit some of the places where "Sherlock" was filmed. :D
I actually didn't get to see all that were on my list, but I think I managed most of the important ones...

Part 8 )

Coming next is an entry about my 4 theatre visits, including some stagedoor photos. :D This'll probably take a while longer though, because I want to write at least 2-3 sentences about each one and it might not be that easy to put all my thoughts and feels into words sometimes... ;-) *g*

This is the last of my "sightseeing" parts. *phew* ;-)
Basically just some random things I came by during my walks...

Part 7 )

Next up: "Sherlock" locations :D
luinalda: (Tower Bridge)
The "sightseeing" part will consist of several parts of its own (probably 3 or more), because there are quite a lot of pictures I'd like to fit in here. ;-) They aren't really in any particular order...

Part 2 )
luinalda: (Tower Bridge)
Ok, here we go with the first part of my London 2012 report. :D
I decided to split them into themed entries instead of doing it chronologically by days...

Part 1 )
luinalda: (London (Sherlock))
I'm back from London!! Arrived home at about 2.30 pm yesterday.

I really had the most amazing time!!! ♥♥♥
Saw 4 shows in 3 days (and met the people I hoped for afterwards <3), visited some "Sherlock" locations, did a little bit of sightseeing and shopping, and generally walked around a lot. *g* It was just great! I had so much fun!! :-)

Believe me, I SO didn't want to leave on Thursday morning (especially that early in the morning!). :-( Actually had to fight some tears on the plane...

Anyway, there will be photos of course. :D I have LOTS of them. *gg* Will really take quite a while to sort through them all and decide which ones are the best to show. ;-) I think it's best to split them into several entries again in any case. Not sure yet whether I'm gonna do it chronologically or themed or whatever though...

See ya!

As some of you already know I'm flying to London tomorrow evening, so I won't be around for a couple of days...

LONDON!!!! <3 *squeeeeee* I'm sooo excited already!!! I have lots of things planned, so let's see how many of them I actually get done. :D *gg* Please keep your fingers crossed for a smooth flight, an at least ok hotel room (haven't been to that one before) and luck with my musical visits. Oh, and no rain would be swell, too. Thanks. ;-)

Will definitely post some photos when I'm back and maybe even write a little report.
See ya!! :-)

Happy Easter everyone! I hope you can all enjoy a nice long weekend. :-)

Saw this cute pic on a friend's FB page. <3


I spent Easter at my parent's house. Drove there on Saturday afternoon and just returned home. My grandma was also there, and yesterday we met the rest of the family (well, most of them anyway) at a restaurant for dinner. All in all I had quite a nice time. :-)
The Easter bunny was also very generous to me. *g* Apart from a fair amount of yummy chocolate it brought me this:


<3<3<3
Love the idea of giving me the money in Pound Sterling! And no, I definitely never get even near this much for Easter. ;-) It also already includes some holiday money from my granny. *yay* This will pay nicely for 1-2 musical/theatre visits in London, I'd say. :-)

And last but not least, have a random Jamie pic. :D *lol*

On Sunday I booked the flight and hotel for a little London trip in July! Wooo-hoooo!!! \o/
I'm sooo happy and excited about this! ♥♥ It's during the one and only week when we have time off from the training course, and I can't quite think of a better way to relax from all the stress than this. :D I also decided to go alone this time, because that'll make me more independent and free to choose what I'll want to see and do. :-) As a matter of fact, I already created a Word document and started listing things I might be interested in doing there. *gg* Still have a lot of time for collecting ideas though.

Haven't stayed at the hotel before, so I hope it's okay. I don't expect to spend a lot of time in the hotel anyway, so as long as it has some clean bed linen and a relatively clean bathroom I'm quite content. ;-) *g* It's definitely in a good area at least, somewhere between Paddington Station and Hyde Park - like the last times when I stayed in London. :-)

Anyways, that's where I'll be from 14 July (late evening) until 19 July (leaving early in the morning). *squeee* <3
If anyone of you should happen to be around during that time, give me a shout! Maybe we can do a little meet-up. :-)

I never thought I'd say this, but this is actually the first time I'm so glad I'm currently NOT in London... Horrible and scary times indeed! I'm really worried about what it'll come to and seeing some more pictures on the news just now actually brought some tears to my eyes. All this violence just seems so ridiculous and pointless. *headdesk* And apparently there was a first fatality now as well. :-(

My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone living in London and those who have friends and family there. And of course the cities where they are copycatting now (Birmingham, Liverpool, etc.)... Hope you all stay safe, dears!! xx

This is a kind of musical theatre special. :D

Basically just some pics of the London theatres I've been to so far. Which I realised weren't really that many yet... Well, I'll try to work on that the next times I'm in London. ;-)

Read more... )

And here's part 2 of my London pics.

There'll be 4 London picspams now, by the way. At first I wanted to include my theatre photos in this one, but it would've been a bit long then, so I decided to put them into a seperate post. And FYI, part 4 will consist of my Natural History Museum pics.

London - part 2 )
luinalda: (London - telephone box)
I've been to London (♥) a couple of times more, but I only have photos in digital form from my last 4 visits... As I have already posted my photos from last year, here is a mix with the ones from 2002, 2006 and 2009. Most of it will look very familiar, maybe only taken from a slightly different angle or something. :D *lol*
Oh yes, and this picspam will be in 2 or 3 parts. Just so you know. ;-)

London - part 1 )

Back home

Hiya. *waves* I'm back home! I arrived yesterday evening from my friend's house, where I stayed an additional 2 1/2 days after we returned from London on Monday.

We had such a fantastic time in London!!! ♥♥  We saw most of the standard tourist sights *g*, visited Shakespeare's Globe Theatre and the Sherlock Holmes Museum, and did LOADS of shopping. \o/ :D Our hotel was very nice. The weather was ok (we had a couple of rain showers, but most of the time it was just cloudy and dry).

So, expect some major picspams soon! :D

Will have quite a lot to do to catch up with my f-list now. ;-) *gg* You guys have been busy, I have more than 150 notifs in my mailbox... :D Sorry I won't reply to any of those posts, but I'll definitely read most of them.

So, tomorrow morning I'll take the train to Berlin, where my friend lives. And then on Tuesday morning (7.20 a.m.!! *yawns*) we'll fly to London! \o/ Woo-hoo! I'm all excited and happy!!

Off to do the rest of my packing now, and then early to bed...


See you in about 12 days. :D I'm gonna miss you all! <3

luinalda: (Rodney - oh no)

And another one of my fish, my last Otocinclus, died. :-(
I more or less expected it this time though, because he was getting thinner and thinner, and looked quite pitiable in the end... :-(  RIP, love!
Will get some new Otos when I'm back from my holidays, because they are adorable. <3


On a more positive note... this time next week I'll already be in London!! *squees*
Yesterday I picked up the suitcase from my parents.
Also just noticed that I still have 2.40 quid from last year's England visit. *g* Wow, I'm rich!! LOL :D

In a moment I'll be off to the bank to exchange some Euros for Pound sterling. Yay! *gg* Then will stroll a bit around the city, trying to find some stuff I still need for my holidays (e.g. a good book). :-)
