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*
luinalda: (Tower Bridge)
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))
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. :-)

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. ;-)

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 )

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 )

Another part of my 2009 England trip. ;-)

I totally love Shakespeare, so I was very happy to finally get to visit Stratford-upon-Avon. And it is one of the most beautiful towns I've ever been to. ♥ Definitely want to go there again someday!

We visited Shakespeare's Birthplace, Nash's House & New Place, Hall's Croft and Shakespeare's grave. :-)
Sadly we didn't have any time left for Anne Hathaway's Cottage and some of the other things, but hopefully next time...

Again I'm sorry for the length of this picspam. I just didn't have the heart to leave some of the pics out. ;-) *g*

This should actually have been part of my 2009 England trip pictures, but somehow I never continued with that... *fails* So, better late than never. ;-)

We spent two days in Blackpool (only a couple of hours each though). Which you can probably tell from the pictures, because the first evening it was very cloudy and a bit stormy, and the second day the weather was very nice with mostly blue sky (although still a bit windy). I probably wouldn't want to spend my whole holidays in Blackpool (2-3 days would be alright), but I really enjoyed the place! And somehow I like being in (British) amusement arcades. :D *lol*

This picspam is slightly longer, as I had about 250(!) photos of Blackpool and just wasn't able to narrow them down to a maximum of 45... So I ended up with 58 pics which was still very hard work, believe me. ;D

here they are )

Okay, again maybe not really "holiday", but whatever. ;-)

From the end of July 2002 until February 2003 I stayed in England to do an internship at a smaller company as part of my university studies. I lived and worked in Shepshed, a small town in Leicestershire. The next bigger town was Loughborough. I spent practically all my Saturdays in either Nottingham, Derby, Leicester or sometimes Loughborough, because there wasn't anything of interest in Shepshed... ;-)

These seriously are ALL the photos I have from these cities. I deeply regret not having taken lots more! But I guess if you live in one place/area for a longer time you kinda think that there's always another time to take some pictures... :-((

Well, maybe this doesn't exactly count as "holidays" as I've never been to Hamburg for more than one day in a row... ;-) *g* But I've been there countless times for shopping, meeting friends and visiting musicals/concerts/whatever.
I really like the city a lot. :-)

During my summer holidays 2008 I visited my friend in Berlin for a couple of days. :-) Besides visits to the Pergamon Museum, the musical "Elisabeth", the cabaret "Die Stachelschweine" and several shopping sprees, we also went to the Zoologischer Garten Berlin (Berlin Zoological Garden).

I actually took about 200 photos there (Oops! *gg*), so it wasn't that easy to narrow them down to just 40 41... But here we go. :D

take a look )

I lost track of how many times I've been to Berlin by now. ;-)
Looking through my photos I realised that I actually never really took that many pictures there though (or mostly only of the same things *lol*). Not even sure why...
Well, here are the ones I found (and that I hadn't posted before).

some Berlin pics )

I'm going to post my zoo photos in a seperate entry, because I think otherwise this would get too long...
