Bee’s Travel Diary

Monday, 04 Sep 2006

Location: London, UK

MapWhen Ben told me that I hadn't posted a blog since 21 August, I didn't believe him, but, alas, it was true.
Not much has been happening in my little life since then. The rest of Florence was amazing. We saw some famous Botticelli paintings and the famous David sculpture by Michelangelo. We also crammed as much Italian food into our systems as possible. Unfortunately, our flight to Prague was cancelled, so instead we went back to Ben's house for the last week of our holidays. On our way back, we stopped off at the Leaning Tower of Pisa which was pretty funny! My visa ran out the day after I arrived in France, so I was living there practically as an illegal immigrant (thanks Ang!). Luckily, I could get a flight out from Geneva and South Africans are allowed to be there and they don't control at the border. It was absolutely and completely horrible to leave Ben. I cried for ages, and as a result I had those big puffy eyes that look so horrible on me. It was a mission getting back because of the bomb scares in England etc. but I arrived home safely and that's the main thing.
The weekend was spent doing washing and tidying my room. We watched practically the whole of the 2nd season of the O.C. and had lots of champagne which was also fun.
Today I am in London getting my iPod fixed and doing a little shopping. I am going to the theatre tonight to see Billy Elliott which should be fun.
Will let you know how school goes, and how the new gappies are.
Love and miss you all so much,
Love Bee
