Since coming back to the real world in havn’t written any blogs. We’ve had two pay days since being back and are starting to get back on our feet financially again and are now able to do fun things!
Neither of us have done any real sight seeing in London, I’ve been up a fair few times but only ever have seen the inside of pubs and bars whilst visiting my friends lol. Paige was given Sam Smith tickets so we thought we’d make a weekend of it.
He was playing at the 02 so we managed to get a Groupon deal for the good hotel right next to the arena for £60 each for two nights.
The rooms were small but clean, the location and price were great and they kept giving us free apples lol
The 02 was just a cable car ride away so we hopped got ready, hopped on and went to see Sam Smith mince it up!
Paige looked absolutely stunning, I havn’t seen her done up in about 8 months so I couldn’t believe this was my girlfriend 😂
Great views from the cable car traveling to the 02.. a bargain for £3.50 each way!
Sam Smith was fucking great, I liked some of his songs before but wouldn’t have said I was a proper fan like Paige. He was amazing live at the atmosphere at the 02 was crazy. I loved how camp he was and he seemed in his absolute element performing on stage!
Great seats, great night, thanks for the tickets Sophie!
The next day we woke up (as usual me considerably earlier than Paige the lazy bitch!) And went out to see the sights of central London! We were very impressed with the public transport in London.. in Bristol it’s full of dole scroungers and smack heads!
Big Ben fully encased in scaffolding lol
Buckingham palace to see my our Liz, she wanted a bit but I had to turn her down as Paige would get jealous..👎

Some homeless bloke banging out tunes on pots and Pans!
In the afternoon we arranged to meet our friends and famous musicians Alex and Hayley Wolfe (name drop 😎) We had met in Indonesia. We met them at Greenwich market and it was great to catch up! Alex being the well connected guy that he is hooked us up with free food from the market, I had the best giant German sausage I’d ever eaten with chilli, cheese bacon and sour kraut along with sausage rolls and Biltong and paige had a big pork wrap!
Catching up at Greenwich market!

Hayley had given us some cool bars and restaurants to visit on the evening but our fun filled day and pigging out at the market had taken it out of us and I slept from 6pm to 10.30pm 😴 lol.
On our last day we met up with Gin for breakfast before catching the coach home. We met Gin whilst in cambodia and she has been adventuring non stop since we’ve last seen her. Was great to catch up and I think we are heading to Budapest with her Sonal and Krupa later in the year 😊
Breakfast with this mad ‘un!
Great weekend away and cost us alot less than you’d think! Here’s what I spent:
- Hotel- £60
- Mega bus to London- £18
- Around £20-25 on transport
- Food- £15
A weekend away in London for less than £120 each, absolute bargain. Bringing our own food with us, eating at the tesco express accross the road and Alex hooking us up with a market feast saved us some money. Really enjoyed it and will definitely make sure we get away and do things like this regularly!
