VTT - Madame Tussaud's

Tuesday, August 20, 2013
Well, it seems that I missed a whole lot of the UK the first time because of the snow. But on my second time around, I was determined to see more.
 
Madame Tussaud's was a definite treat for the family. There was just too much to see. Actually, it was more like, there were too many wax figures to see. The family got all excited, hobnobbing with the rich and famous, not to mention, the powerful and influential.
 
90 minutes was not enough. We simply had to have more time but we didn't have it then. What a shame. But we did capture many memories. After all, who can forget standing next to Brangelina, Julia Roberts, the Queen and her family????

Here's how we spent our 90 minutes of fame: 

 
 
 
 
 
 

VTT Postcard - Stonehenge

Stonehenge
 
This is a very, very, very late VTT post about our UK travels last December. But hey, better late than never! It's also been awhile since I last posted a travel post.
 
 
This time, I brought my whole family along for the trip. Using my family as lucky charms, they helped me ward off the bad snow I had last time. I was slightly worried though. On the day of our trip, it looked like the weather was going bad as well. But in the end though, once our tour bus left the station I felt content. I knew I was going to finally get there.
 
 
It started becoming windy and cloudy. It drizzled a bit as well. We had to put on our thick winter coats. But I didn't care. I was with some unexplained monoliths and that was enough for me.
 
We were unable to walk amongst the standing stones. And the rocks were not really much to look at at first. But as soon as the sunset came, boy, they were something else. Just looking at them from afar filled me with awe. Lots of photo opportunities that afternoon. And I thought the bad weather was going to ruin everything. But it turned out great.
 
Enjoy the photos!
