I went places! Part 2

Last day in Germany for me. To be honest - I don't really want to go home. I miss my pets and my friends. Specially one of them cause she just had a baby. (The day after I left for Germany. Sneaky little thing). But other than that I'd much rather stay here. I got to see some amazing places and attend some great events but that's a post for another day.  I gotta finish my story about London . I'm not really sure why I didn't write everything in one post cause quite honestly that was mostly the fun stuff. Now comes the more boring part, lol.

May 26. Me and my sister left London behind and went to Coventry. A town which I particularly wanted to visit for two reasons. One: one of my best friends lived there at the time, Two: I almost went studying to Coventry University so I wanted to check it out.

I hadn't seen Justīne for TWO YEARS! No need to say I missed her like crazy. Since I honestly love that girl with all my heart. And she was more than happy to see us cause no one had visited her in Coventry. She moved to UK after high school to study. Anyways, Coventry is not a big city and there's not much to do but I didn't even care. I was just happy to see my friend. So we stayed in and played cards and chatted all night long. :)






May 27. We decided to go on a little shopping spree and check out what Covetry has to offer. In the town center is a Transport Museum. The entrance is free and honestly I loved it. Me and my sister are big fans of cars and motorsports so we spent hours walking around and checking everything out.

After the museum Justīne took us on a little tour around the University campus. It is actually really modern and looks amazing! They have a huge library and The Hub is a great place for students to relax and study. I could definitely see myself studying there... Unfortunately I did not like the city itself. It's very grey and dirty. But other than that it was not that bad :)

In the evening we were quite exhausted so we decided to buy few drinks and watch Shawshank redemption, as it is one of my favorite movies and Justīne hadn't seen it. The next day (May 28) me and my sister had to take the bus back to London. My sister got a good laugh as we passed the Sherlock Holmes museum. I really wanted to visit it but we didn't have that much time and as we drove by it, I unconsciously put my hand on the window and stared at it with sad, googly eyes! My sister said it looked like one of those movie moments! LoL. So we got back to my friend's place near London and had a quiet night with some last chit-chat and Latvian songs in the background.

May 29. We packed our suitcases, my friend walked us to the bus station, we got to the airport and flew home.

So that was our trip. All in all it was a good one. It had it's ups and downs but I really enjoyed it. I missed my friends. I miss them now! But we had a great fun together and awesome memories :) And I'm actually proud of myself and my sister because this was our first time traveling on our own and planning and finding everything by ourselves. And we survived! LoL. 

Now I gotta go pack my suitcase :( Or in other words - sit and watch my sister do the job.
Take care, everybody. See you all back in Latvia!

  1. I hope Justine was able to get out of Pat's vehicle. That looks like a tight fit. I love The Shawshank Redemption. I haven't seen it in quite a while. The Hurricane is back in the U.S.

    Love,
    Janie

  3. Dear Baiba, I hope you are proud of yourself--doing all that traveling and touring with your sister, making the money work and the time. And collecting memories along the way. Good for you! Peace.
