Gone Wireless

I can’t believe how fast the days are going. It’s just hit me that it’s already half way through July, crazy! Less than 6 more weeks to go! Last weekend I stayed in Nottingham so it was pretty low key. My host familys’ last Au Pair came up for the weekend so we got the chance to meet each other do some shopping in the city centre. The weather these past two weeks has been absolutely beautiful here and I hope it continues! I guess I’m not really getting the full England experience but I can’t complain!

This past weekend was one of the hottest, longest, most painful and yet the most worth it times that I’ve had while I’ve been here. Laura and I spent the weekend at the Wireless Musical Festival at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London. Two days of nothing but sun, drinks, and incredible performances. Each day had different performers on 4 different stages but due to crowds we spent the majority of our time at the main stage. This festival was the chance of a lifetime thanks to artists like Justin Timberlake, Jay Z, Emeli Sande, Rita Ora, Conor Maynard, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, John Legend, Miguel, Kesha, Little Mix, Snoop Dog and countless more (Note: These photos came from the wireless facebook page!) Despite the 30 degree weather and scorching sunshine we made it through over 15 hours of standing in crowds to get a pretty damn good show.

After two days we were both exhausted and beyond excited to sleep in and go at our own pace sunday. Our first stop was at a significant townhouse in South Kensington. Just down the road on Egerton Terrance is the house used in the film The Parent Trap. And of course, the one day we try to relive our Li-Lo younger years…the front of the house is blocked off with construction! However we were obviously still excited enough to take a picture!

From there we headed over to the British Museum of Natural History. Tying to beat the heat we spent the rest of the afternoon walking through the exhibits that seemed endless. Definitely a must see if you are in the area!
