We did it again…picniced outside the Wireless Festival. A little Ke$ha on a Saturday afternoon never hurt anyone.
This past weekend there was a music festival in Hyde Park called Hard Rock Calling. We didn’t get tickets but we sat outside the fenced area and enjoyed his music! We cheated but I bet after you read this you will to because next weekend is the Barclays Wireless festival where you can do the same thing.
As you can see a lot of people had the same idea as us. We brought some beer and a towel and camped out for a couple hours in the park.
We didn’t know what to film but we wanted to record the music so sorry in advance for the random shots.
You better believe it we will be there again on Saturday at 4pm for KeSha!!!
Catching up…..Read about The Queue here.
Tips for Wimbledon:
-Read the size requirements of bags that can be brought into the grounds and how much alcohol you can bring in.
-Go with a group
-Have a picnic while you are there
The day was so much fun and we had amazing weather. The rest of the story can be told through photos.
And thanks to David who gave me his Centre Court ticket for the last set of the Soderling/Hewitt match!
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.
Next up…Inside Wimbledon!
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.
I’m alive and well. Living it up and enjoying every moment in the city.
Looking up at Times Square on 7th Ave.

Bryant Park during lunch hour.
That’s only a little taste of my vacation. 1 week left until I’m back in London. =(
