I popped up to London yesterday to carry out some Uni errands and visit my Brixton family (the family I lodged with for 6 months earlier this year). Thanks to the awesome Megatrain this trip was made affordable and now London, and the rest of the country, has become a possibility for me again now that my Young Persons Railcard is no more. I got a ticket for half the normal price, and if I book further in advance I can get £1 single tickets. I am so chuffed about this bargain! How did I not know about this before?
So I wandered through Southampton to catch my train, and marvelled at the lovely autumn-ness on the trees.
I made my way to UCL and walked past the imposing Senate House building. It always makes me think of George Orwell’s 1984. I love it.
I walked through the British Museum, saying a quick hello to this lovely fella.
One of my very good friends works at the British Museum so I text her on the off-chance she was around.
And indeed she was. She suggested lunch and we ended up getting cake! She always makes me eat yummy cake whenever I see her. We had a good natter in this awesome bookshop/cafe nearby – I wish I could remember the name to offer a recommendation because the Chocolate and Almond Flourless cake was incredible.
Next I caught the tube down to Brixton to see the family and enjoyed booze and food and chatter.
Then I stumbled up to Waterloo to catch the train back to Southampton. I was feeling a little woozy and sleepy but a lovely day was had.
