Yesterday I surprised my best friend with tickets to see Wicked the musical for her birthday. We got the train into London (after Starbucks off course). I tried the Strawberries & Cream Frappe for the first time, I don’t know if I would have it again but it was really nice and refreshing (I prefer the Java Chip).
For lunch we chose Maxwells, I had sweet potato fries and a smoothie which were delicious. After a quick snack we got up to leave and noticed that it was chucking it down! I had never seen rain like this in London before (mainly because we also look at the weather before going and try to avoid the rain, but when you have tickets there’s not much you can do). Everyone outside was getting soaked while we seemed refuge inside Maxwells until it stopped. Luckily we only had to wait 5 minutes till it cleared up!
After the rain we hurried over to Victoria, where Wicked is performed at the Appolo Victoria Theatre. This was my 9th time seeing the show (yes I’m obsessed, I havnt been in atleast 2-3 years & I justify it by saying it’s just like watching your favourite movie). If you have seen this show then you will know what I’m on about, if you have not seen the show then you need to!
After the theatre the plan was to have dinner in Hard Rock Cafe but when we arrived the queue was ridiculous so we headed back to Covent Garden to find some food around that area. On the way we walked though St James’s park and saw Buckingham Palace and some more pretty houses. By this point the weather was perfect and you would not have even known it had poured earlier.
Another first for me yesterday was Five Guys, I had heard so much about it and seen it everywhere that I wanted to try it out. At first I didn’t think there would be anything I would eat as I don’t eat beef burgers, but luckily I saw they had grilled cheese on the menu! While I was in America I lived off grilled cheese so I knew I had to get it, it was o good I ended up having two as you can see!
We then walked all the way down to Westminster along the Thames. And from here we headed back to St Pancras and home. Just like that the day was over.
