And so the time has flown since last summer and it’s time for another trip to England.
No flight photos this time as a) I had a middle centre seat out from Perth and then b) it was dark all the way into London.
I went via Singapore which was cool – I like Changi airport, it’s big and clean and has lots of places to sit down and chill. This time it was full of Japanese schoolgirls, which was really bizarre – it was just like a cliché – all with their knee high socks and giggling – very odd. I would have taken a photo, but I didn’t want to seem like a pervert stalker, so you’ll just have google and imagine it all for yourselves.Once on the plane, all I can do is wait it out – its a long way to the UK from Australia – the leg from Singapore seems to go on for an eternity.
When I left Perth it was 39C and when I got to England, it was -13C. Yes, that’s practically Arctic temperatures and a bit of a shock to my now warm temperature blood.
There had been a fair amount of snow in England and I managed to stop for a few shots in Royston where I lived before I moved to Australia. It was just after dawn and farkin’ freezing, but it was beautiful and worth the 15 minutes stop. Sometimes you just have to capture the moment that is unfurling infront of you.
I drove on and quickly got to my kids house – was so good to see them again. I love seeing their smiling faces and having them jump all over me – I just wish I could make that happen more often.
On the way home we stopped off to to get a few more photos in the snow and bright blue sky
Next up – the cousins 🙂
