LONDON 2012 part 1

So me and my boyfriend travelled to London this summer. It was a trip I’m gonna remember for the rest of my life. We booked cheap plane tickets in the beginning of this year and ended up almost forgetting to find a hotel because it was so much before the whole trip was about to take a place. So two days before the flight I was in my Facebook and saw my friend’s status. He was asking if somebody needs a place to stay exactly at the same time we were about to be in London! So we paid almost nothing for that week!

First we flight to Amsterdam to change the plane. I wish I would have more to say about that city, but I was dead tired since we woke up at 3am. All I can remember is that the airport was frikking huge and it was filled with busy people. Of course I wasn’t busy at all (surprise) and we almost missed our plane ‘cos we had to get me a coffee from Starbucks. Hah, no waking up without my morning coffee, period.

We got in London about 5pm and went straight to to buy our tickets for the famous London Underground. It was insanely funny with those trains by the way! We kept taking the wrong ones and ended up in all the wrong places but it was all worth it. I love love love that kind of accidents.

And the happiest accident happened on Wednesday when I wanted to know if there’s any shows in the evening. Juho checked from internet and said there’s Skunk Anansie playing at Village Underground. SKUNK ANANSIE, one of my all time favourite bands! So of course all the tickets were sold but I kept positive and hoped there’s still some left at the door. We waited and waited and finally the doorman came out. He didn’t have any idea but he promised to find the Skunk Anansie’s manager and ask from him. So then I met the manager and heard that it might be possible to find the tickets for us. Juho and I went to look for some food and wait until they open the doors. Finally the manager got out and asked us to come around the corner. He said they didn’t have any tickets left and asked would it be okay if he’d put my name + 1 on the list. I thought he must be joking… And that’s how I got to see, hands down, the best show I’ve ever seen and one of the most charismatic vocalists there is. Respect.
