He arrived Friday (8th) and we welcomed him in style, we joined forces with the regular stockie crew as well as Azz, Nath and Wood and made our way to Temple Walkie for a wild night of drinking and debauchery. We were introduced to an interesting drinking game where last names, pointing and drinking with the right hand was not allowed – and boy! Did it get messy! The next morning, a little worse for wear (I think we all got bitten by a snake bite!) we headed out to enjoy the fine London sunshine by climbing about 500 steps to the top of St Paul’s Cathedral before heading to Azz’s local on the Thames for lunch. That night we returned home for a BBQ in the park where Frisbee and football got the better of the boys.
Sunday, with a dusty Aaron in tow we headed up to Camden markets – a packman hoodie, a cool banded watch and a few souvenirs later, we pulled into Lock 17 to enjoy the sunshine and a few quiet drinks, which (again) got messy.
Monday, we were both happy that Monday had come around so that we could escape Dean and the excessive alcohol consumption. But by Tuesday we were having Deano withdrawals so sick calls were made. Tuesday was spent in the craziness that is Primark and returning to Camden for lunch and another look around. Wednesday night we shifted our regular Thursday fun day so we could all attend a burlesque show in Holborn accompanied by a few *cough*too many*cough* bottles of wine. Friday rolled around far too quickly and we found ourselves once again out with the lads for a night of shirt swapping fun in Clapham starting at O’neils and finishing at Vodka Revolutions at around 3:30am – did we mention Deano’s flight check-in was 9am the following morning? Poor Dean.
After Dean’s departure, we returned to Vodka Revolution for another farewell that had a little somethin’ somethin’ for everyone. As well as a pretty fun drinking session in Camden – 2 cocktails for 7 quid, can’t really blame us for that one! But between the destruction of our liver’s (hehe), we have also been busy sightseeing. We have visited a number of Museums’ – National Gallery, National Portrait Gallery and the Museum of London; as well as Westminster Abbey - Tick, Tick, Tick, and Tick. With our “To Do” list now dwindling and the finish line for our time in London near we are making plans for our final trip home. We depart London on the 16th of July and travel through Greece, the Islands, Italy and south of France before shooting off to Sydney via KL and Perth. We arrive into Sydney on the 27th of August, put it in your calendar, we’re coming home (country road)!
We have plenty planned between now and then but our next stop is Croatia!!!!!!
Hope your all jealous :)
