When one of your all-time favourite bands announces a tour that’s no where near where you live, you do what any rational fan would do - fly across the other side of the world to go see them! Okay, so maybe that’s not exactly rational - in fact, it’s kind of crazy - but we aren’t just talking about any band here, we’re talking about the Spice Girls! The band I grew up with, the band that was my first music love and the band I once did a Year 5 assignment on. After two attempts and two hours in total spent nervously waiting in online queues, I was headed to the Spice World 2019 Tour in the UK and got tickets to see them live in London! It was my second time in city (I first visited seven years ago when I went travelling around Europe for six weeks) and while my first time was spent doing a whole lot of touristy stuff, I felt like I had kind of made myself at home for a week this time around. Having so many friends in the UK, there was something comforting and familiar about being in London, but the downside to the city? That typical British weather! (Spoiler alert: I complain about the weather a lot in this post!).
Not only did I get to tick a childhood dream of mine off my bucket list during this trip, but travelling overseas solo had been something I’ve been wanting to do for a few years now too, so it was an experience like no other and one of the best times I’d ever had in my entire life. To recount my trip, a personal and detailed travel diary felt the most natural to me as that’s always been my writing style and I felt as though something like a city guide would’ve been too restrictive (I hardly think I’m in any position to “guide” people either!). I did make a trip to Paris after my time in the English capital and that’s another travel diary to come, but for now, here’s all that I did, saw and ate during my six days in London.
