Weekend in London

En route to Kiruna!

Sooo after a nice short weekend in London it’s time to head over to Kiruna! Had a great time, got to see the Lion King Musical it was great, although truth be told Wicked was better, unfortunately I also believe Wicked to be one of the very top shows so poor Lion King didn’t quite match up in comparison, still highly recommended though! 

My wallet is a little worse for wear after a nice shopping spree in which I finally got myself a nice new pair of jeans and some luurrvely Sorel Joan of Arctic snow boots! Lovely play on words there 😀 they’re warm and stylish! Should keep my feeties nice and toasty in Abisko and Ivalo 🙂 I should probably also mention the unfortunate incident whereby I double booked a car hire pickup from heathrow, got into the one that hadn’t been prepaid for and ended up paying again. Oh! Get this! I also then forgot to cancel said return pickup on the double booking and enjoyed 2 cab company drivers having an argument over who’s client I was outside the Hilton hotel in London and found myself having to to lie to one of the drivers faces about the fact that the reservation existed under my name. I actually do feel very guilty about getting the poor guy up that early in the morning… I really should get my head checked…

Any how’s, currently sat in a SAS plane with a bunch of germ infested snot faces spluttering all over the place, orange juice and hand disinfectant at the ready! On a plus note 🙂 weathers good heading into Stockholm and flights not as long as I thought it’d be!

Can’t wait to get to Kiruna where our rental car awaits. Nothing quite like the open road with the fresh arctic air, snow laden valleys and no time schedule 🙂 Weather forecast is not looking good for the week in Abisko, which I am choosing not to get upset about. I remain optimistic that forecasters have totally screwed it up this week 😀 More soon…
