Feeling far above par, oh how lucky we are

The second week of our honeymoon involved a lot more of us being tourists about town. The weather wasn't getting any cooler and we learnt from some of the more exhausting days from the first week, so tempered our outings accordingly. (Again click on the photos to go and read about our days at the Occasional Tourist).

On Monday we demonstrated the importance (again) of knowing what is open on certain days of the week. Hot and humid and too long for the walks we undertook the tragically high-point of the day was our milkshakes in McDonald's at lunch.

Tuesday we took ourselves off to South Kensington and Exhibition Road. We chose the V&A as we'd both been to the other museums at some point. The V&A is huge and not a single day undertaking!

The next day we decided to go for somewhere air conditioned and took ourselves off to the movies and dinner!

After all this out and about we took a day at home and the Sofa of Sloth became our cinema, the microwave served popcorn and we caught up with the latest Die Hard movie which Husband had received for his birthday and had been waiting patiently to see!

Fully refreshed we ventured into town again to the Museum of London. A tube or train ride and travelling the right time of day a reasonable taxi fare later... the history of London laid out before you. If you're in the area take in the Barbican too the buildings and the high-walks are an experience.

Saturday was the two week anniversary of our wedding; and appropriately we were back where it all started. We went to the pub where we met and then off to the Valley to see the pre-season home friendly... and our brick that had last been laid!

Sunday was a day of rest, and Monday (the last day before I had to go back to work and the daily grind commenced again) we went to the Museum of London Docklands.

You're off and away!”
