Long Way Back

Ken and I were taking several trains from Victoria Station to Wales then to take a boat from Fishguard in Wales to Wexford in Ireland where Ken's mum were to pick us up. Our first train only left at 7 in the evening so Ken and I had the entire day in London! Yay! We had to check out early-ish (not really early, but felt very early for our jet lagged butts) so we dropped off our luggage at Victoria Station and headed for Oxford street. We had such a lovely day going to cafes, going to the Victoria's Secret store and going for dinner. I've had one of those great satin pajamas from Victoria's Secret for forever and it's starting to seriously fall apart because I've lived in it for so long so I finally got myself new satin pajamas, yay! They are just so good, I couldn't actually find them in the U.S. so I'm delighted that I could find them in their London store!

We had dinner at Wildwood Kitchen which was really nice and surprisingly budget friendly. You can find their website here.

It was Ken's idea to get the boat back from London and I was so excited about the idea. After spending an amazing day in London we were getting ready for our trains from Victoria Station to Fishguard. We had to take three different trains, I HATED the idea of that because we had so much luggage and public transport is stressful and annoying enough as it is. Having to actually change trains twice didn't really go down well with me, but it went so smoothly when we were there. The train stations were small and very easy navigate, most of the time we didn't have to navigate at all we just had to wait 10 min for the next train and there was hardly anyone else on the trains so we got seats with space for our luggage and so on. All very important things for comfort! Haha! I also got to see some of Wales which is new. I love welsh people, they are always just so nice. Like, I don't know what it is, but every single time I've met a welsh person they are just beyond nice! Love em'!!

We arrived at Fishguard at boarded the boat at 2 am. It was fun to go on the boat I thought, I haven't been on a boat in a really long time actually. Unfortunately it was pitch black outside so I didn't see any of it, but knowing we were on a boat was exciting enough. We grabbed a bit to eat, I really wanted to stay awake because I wanted to enjoy our last hours of adventure before being back in Ireland. Ken had gotten one of those pack of cards with hypothetical questions in California so we were reading those and discussing them before arriving in Ireland at 6 am.

When we arrived, as you can imagine, we went to bed only to return to the real world many, many hours later.
