I am always so excited to have my parents and friends visiting in London. It brings me tremendous pleasure to walk them around the city, showing them my favourite places, while of course, watching their reactions.
I don’t often invite friends over because it’s not the most convenient country to come to – it’s not a two hours drive. It most often is a 3 hours flight with the two hours extra that you have to wait in the airport and for those who don’t have an airport in their city, the hours add up. Then in London, from the airport where we live is another hour. I feel tired just thinking about this trip. However, I do try to let them know that whenever they decide to come to London, we’ll have an extra bed for them.
I am actually writing this post because my parents are visiting us right now. By the time this post goes live, they’ll be on a plane home. I am keep telling them that visits this short should be illegal, but still, we want to make the best of it.
As they have been to most tourist attractions, this time we wanted to take them outside of London, to the Ocean (which is actually the English Channel) – so Bournemouth it is!
From here, I leave you with a story in pictures. It is the first time I choose to do it like this, but I’m a very visual person and I thought I’d do something different for all the other visuals out there.
