Our much anticipated trip to the UK went by in a dream. We had so much fun and did and saw so many new things and all we want to do is go back. I thought it might be nice to blog a few of the many, many photos that we took. At one stage while walking around in Greenwich it was 7°C. I have never been so cold in my life. I thought it was suppose to be spring in London?! It was so cold that my hands where frozen around the freezing little black camera in my pocket, and I just-could-not take my hands out of my pockets to take photos. It was crazy! And then you climb in the tube and it’s so hot and stuffy that you have take everything off. Just to put everything on again when you get outside :)
Anyway, this was my and Pieter’s first trip overseas, but I think the travel bug has bitten as well and hard now. Good thing that we are moving to Norway at the end of 2012 :) We plan to travel as much as we can while we are so close to all the beautiful places in Europe we could only dream of visiting while in South Africa. And I can’t tell you how excited I am to shoot weddings in Norway and hopefully all over Europe and the UK. Shooting weddings in new places makes you see everything differently.
Enough talk, I think it’s time for some photos.
This American lady and Indian guy just sat down next to each other and started chatting and sharing their packed lunches at Cape Town’s airport. It was a very interesting conversation to listen to :)
On the train between Woking and Waterloo station. London here we come! Not everyone shared our excitement, though.
I just could not believe or get used to how many people are in London. There’s always thousands of people everywhere you look.
Walking two of your twelve ferrets in the middle of the city is completely normal, right?
This is an artwork in the Tate Modern. Pieter is a Virgo and his horoscope read ” You are very tall”. Which could not be more correct! Wow, for once a horoscope that is actually true! With excitement we read my Capricorn horoscope. It read “You are an alcoholic and you will die this week”. Hmm, luckily we don’t believe in these things :)
How awesome must it not be to be able to go to places like the Tate and all the other world class museums and galleries as part of a school outing?
One of our favourite places we visited was Tower of London.
The Jubilee crown.
At Guildford Castle with Ilze and Reinhard.
The little Alice in Wonderland sculptures all over Guildford.
This was in beautiful, old village called Shere. We had lunch at the pub where parts of The Holiday were shot.
Nothing better than Borough market.
We saw some pretty bizarre things in Camden.
The camera that took the photo.
Bath. We HAVE to go back to Bath.
Waiting for a table for afternoon tea and scones at Sally Lunn’s.
Hampton Court was really cool.
War of the Worlds sculptures in Woking
On our way back from the UK we stayed with Kirsten & Mars in Dubai for a few days. It could not be more opposite from where we just came.
The aquarium at the Atlantis Hotel on the Palm Jumeira.
Thank you Kirsten for this photo!
The well known Burj Al Arab.
The Dubai skyline from the car. It looks like an alien landscape with all the super modern buildings.
The Burj Khalifa. Here we had one of the most memorable, unforgettable, out-of-this-world experiences. Kirsten and Mars took us all the way up to the 123′th floor of the highest building in the world, where we sipped champagne while looking at the city lights twinkle way, way, way below us.
Mr Tapi and Miss Chloé :)
