LEGO: London Bus

2016-10-29 20.17.35 HDR.jpg

This was one more free little box that I received when I went to the Lego store earlier on. It was about the time the Lego store in London was opening so I think it was the beginning of November and this was the one gift I really wanted since I have some other London iconic boxes (that I still have to build), this would look magnificent next to it!

My trip to London (November)

This trip to London was planned right after I bought tickets to see “No man’s land”. I had to find a friend to go along since I had booked two tickets so I put a vague description on my facebook wall and the first person who reacted to it (and actually had the money to go to the theatre – which was one and the same person) could come along with me.

After the initial plan to go to the theatre, the other things to do started to follow. Since Sanne is also a Harry Potter fan, it wasn’t hard to convince her to go to the Studios. Likewise it wasn’t hard to convince her to go to see Wicked, since last time she was in London she went to a musical too.

I had forgotten that we would be leaving on a public Holiday in Belgium, so about a week before departure, I panicked a little thinking I might not get to Brussels on time to catch my train. But the panic subsided when I saw that I didn’t have tickets for the first train out but the second, which did leave me some breathing room in the morning.

No man’s land

A few years back these two lovely gentlemen performed Waiting for Godot in London’s West End. Since I had planned a trip to London just before the play started and because it only had a short run, I have been regretting the fact that I hadn’t seen them together on stage.

When earlier this year the announcement came that they were doing another play together, I didn’t hesitate or even check which play they were doing, I bought two tickets to see the play and after doing that I asked if any of my friends would like to join me to make up a regret I had. I didn’t tell them what the regret was only that it was in London. That way none of my friends would jump at the names I was spouting but would genuinely be interested in doing anything I would suggest after that.

Doctor Faustus (London 24/05/2016)

When I was asked if I wanted to go along to London recently, I started watching around which plays were on. I had some choices ready for my travelling companion to choose from “People, Place and things” (which I would have watched just to see if it really is that good to move from the National Theatre to West End), Wicked (I’ve wanted to see this musical ever since I read the book by Gregory Maguire) and Doctor Faustus was the third choice I gave.
