Posts Tagged ‘Covent Garden’

That happens so often.. that I don’t write much in my blog during the week because I don’t feel I have much to say, but then suddenly a lot of ideas pops up.. but today’s blog is about London and travelling.

Because my Mother and I went to London in October last year, to see Roger Hodgson at the Royal Albert Hall – we bought tickets a year before, without knowing that Roger would come to Denmark later that year. But it doesn’t matter – we had a great trip there, and if we knew at that time that Roger Hodgson performed in Denmark – even two shows! we would have missed a great experience.

And now I’m having a nostalgic moment, I realised, that even though I’m not much into travelling to big cities, London did find its way into my heart. It’s busy, noisy and everything like any other city, but also cozy and nice.

Unfortunately, my mother had big pains in her back, and she had a “frozen arm” whatever it’s called.. big pains everytime she moved her right arm.. allow me one note to that: those pains almost kept her from going to Roger’s show in Randers, and not only did she have pains, she was also having a bad cold. But she went because she was invited backstage, and she said that she just had to go no matter what! And for some strange reason, after the concert and meeting Roger, she had no pains from that day! She could move her arm again! (must have been all the good energy in the room!) – and I am also wondering, because I haven’t had any migraine attacks since then.. yes, a boost of happiness can do a lot.. End of note and back to London:

Because of those pains, city walking was painful for her, and we didn’t see all those things we planned. Not that we planned anything really..but anyways, she starts talking about a market she had heard about.. Covent Garden, and a lady who passed by us while she was talking heard it – we were of course speaking Danish to each other – but the kind lady heard her say “Covent Garden”, smiled and said “oh, are you looking for Covent Garden? That’s that way” and pointed.

So we headed for Covent Garden, and there were some great musicians playing there, and my mom recorded a bit of it. Because of that arm, she couldn’t hold the camera still, but I love the clip. It was moments like these that make me miss London and those cozy and fun moments:

You hear my mother laughing in the clip…and my laughter at the end of it. What made us laugh was the way they were chasing those who didn’t throw them money, chasing, dancing and playing the violin at the same time.. it was just awesome.

London is definetly a city I’d love to visit again, and maybe I’ll bring my mother along now that she is well. But maybe I’m going there already in July, because I’m going with my boyfriend to Ireland – and we consider visiting London on our way over there. July is definetly going to be an eventful month, and I just can’t wait visiting London again, and after that; zipping around the beautiful country Ireland.

Ok that was one nostalgic blog, thinking about past and future at the same time. Tomorrow I’ll go out and take pictures of the spring, because everything is so beautiful right now.

Uh, did I say tomorrow? I mean later today, it’s already 2am.. I better turn off this ‘puter and get some sleep, so good night! (and good afternoon to my friends overseas 😉 )
