Place 92 – May 10 2022 to May 13 2022: United Kingdom – A Visit Home (Part 2)

Day 8 – Wales & Plymouth, UK

We started day 8 with going to get a car rental! We picked up a small Toyota Aygo and set off for breakfast at the McDonald’s that Curtis used to work at when he was younger.

After breakfast, we set off on a drive to Wales! We aren’t sure where in Wales it was, but we were visiting a friend there!

We got to her house after a few hours of driving and we sat and chatted for a while before we went out for lunch at a nice local cafe.

Post lunch, we jumped back in the car and drove off to Plymouth! We have a few friends that live there, so we drove down to see them, have some dinner and drinks and just chat a bit.

When we arrived, though, we had to drive around Plymouth which is just hills! A bit crazy and not super fun to drive or park on. We got parked up and luckily we had a friend that was letting us stay with them overnight, which was nice.

We had a curry for dinner at an Indian restaurant with a bunch of people and by the time we ate and left it was already bed time! We headed back to the apartment and went to sleep. We had another drive the day after so a good sleep was required.

Day 9 – Bournemouth, UK

We were up early and we drove out to Bournemouth!

We had a concert to see so we thought it made sense to keep the car for the extra day and drive to Bournemouth from Plymouth.

We were staying at a Premier Inn again because it’s practical and we know it’s nice!

We got ourselves settled and then we went out to a Sigrid concert. This concert was a small intimate concert and was very short but was amazing!

We left the concert and had a bit of a walk around Bournemouth and then grabbed some KFC for dinner.

Day 10 – Andover & Basingstoke, UK

Once we headed to a nice cafe for breakfast, we had a bit of a walk at the beach in Bournemouth, which we both used to go to with our families when we were younger.

We drove back to Andover and then off to Basingstoke for a bit of shopping with Kim’s family.

We took the car back after we were done in Basingstoke and then we had to pack to go to Norway!

We went to have pizza with Curtis’ dad and it was really nice to see him, too.

We stayed overnight at Curtis’ family’s house and then off to Norway we go!

The next blog will be about some time in Norway, which was an awesome time with celebrations and lots of hanging out with friends.
