The Queue

On Thursday we decided to tackle ‘The Queue‘ at Wimbledon.  The Queue is for non-ticket holders who want to experience Wimbledon.  You aren’t guaranteed entry but the chances of you getting in are pretty high.  We got to the queue around 10:00am and were in by 12:30pm.

Tips for the queue:

-Bring a book, magazine, newspaper

-Bring a towel to sit on

-Bring some snacks, drinks, & alcohol

-Bring an umbrella

-Bring cash. They don’t accept credit cards.

-Be patient.  It looks like chaos but it is very organized

We didn’t camp out but there were a ton of tents filled with people hoping to get centre court seats.

The queue is a fun experience and once you get into the grounds you realize it wasn’t as bad as you thought.

Bees On Regent Street

Wandering around on this ok-weathered day I stumbled upon a group of people on a street corner looking up.  I didn’t have anywhere to be so I decided to find out what as going on.

Everyone was staring at 3 bee keepers figuring out what to do with this giant bee’s nest that was formed on a traffic light!

This is why I ALWAYS carry my camera and flipcam in my bag. You just never know when you’ll need it!

I stood there for a good 10 minutes and nothing happened so I left.  The bee keepers didn’t even know what to do or maybe they were waiting for the right moment but either way I got a little bored so I left.  I’ll see if there are any newspaper articles to follow up with.  In the mean time I’ll leave you with a little video I made (because I have way too much time on my hands right now).

NOLA

Well we survived our first Bachelorette party in New Orleans…..barely.

24 hour bars, restaurants handing out to-go cups, flavored daiquiris, beads and balconies.

That’s all I can say. 

Wedding Blogs

It’s my new obsession so I’ve added a wedding blogroll.  Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

A Taste Of Spain – London

Sunday afternoon Jon and I went to the Taste of Spain festival on Regent Street. We thought it was going to be a giant street fair with different food and drink vendors, free samples, activities, etc (secretly we were hoping it was like the NY street fairs) but it wasn’t.  If I had to sum up the fair I would say it was an advertisement for Spain.

The World Cup Trophy

I Looooooove Mini Golf!

Overall the festival was fun but if you missed it you didn’t miss much.  The only food options were churros or an ice cream truck. It got us out of the flat so I’m happy about that.
