We arrived in the UK and stayed with a friend in London for a few days. We did all the touristy things there, including a trip on the London Eye. Great view from the top, especially as it broke down for about 25 minutes whilst we were in it.

We visited the cricket club I used to play for in London and then wandered to Hampton Court Palace for the afternoon.

We went up to Wales to stay with cousins. Less touristy stuff, more family stuff, but a castle or two thrown in for good measure.

Back in London, we did a trip across to Bath to visit some friends and we stopped at Stonehenge and Salisbury.

It was good meeting up with friends and family again after having been back in NZ for about 4 years.
