Hi! Hope the weekend was a good one. I'm currently battling a nasty cold! It's so annoying cos I can't work out till I get better. Just when I was all gingered up to start the year on a roll fitness-wise haha!
But anyway about this post. If anyone were to ask me what the best part of my time away was, I would mention amongst other things, my walks down the river at Oxford, and then the musicals I went to see.
Walks down the river: Nemi and I would take morning walks by the river and it was really refreshing because the scenery was so beautiful. We saw horses at the meadow, boathouses for the Oxford University nearby, boats docked by the bank, ducks swimming, rowers doing their thing, we enjoyed the peaceful sounds the water created, and as we got close to town, pubs and picturesque buildings. I took so many pictures but can only share a few with you. Of course the walks were a win-win for us because we were able to achieve a good morning work out during these walks.
Taking walks back home in Lagos is something I hardly do mainly because of the hot weather and then the terrain. So when I get the opportunity to enjoy a lovely scenery, I seize it.
Musicals: I love musicals so much. If you love music, stage plays, art and creativity, you would love musicals. There are loads of musicals in the UK with ticket prices ranging from 13 pounds to over a 100 pounds. Like I mentioned before, sites like lastminute.com help you find great deals and cut your expenses. I went for the Stomp musical and the much loved Lion King musical. See more details as captions under the pictures below!
