The Slide

After the London 2012 Olympics, many wondered what would become of the structures in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in East London. Four years after the games, one of them has had a new attraction added. Upon her return, Kathleen and I went to try out the ArcelorMittal Orbit‘s “The Slide“. It is apparently the┬áthe […]

In The Beginning

In the beginning, there was a list. Since Kathleen and I have been together (April 2016), we’ve been making comments about things that we’d like to do together. I’ve decided to put it together in a list, and document what we’ve done together. I’m also adding other experiences which I think we’d like, even though […]

Shrek’s Adventure! London

Located on the South Bank, between the London Dungeon and London Aquarium, Shrek’s Adventure! London is the latest mid-way attraction by Merlin Entertainment. My sister, Julie, wanted to visit the walk through adventure, so I invited Kathleen along to for the ride. There was a point in the mirror maze where I walked up behind […]

Junkyard Golf Club

Before Kathleen headed back to the USA, I had to check her golf putting skills. We did this at the Junkyard Golf Club, in Shoreditch’s Old Truman Brewery. With three holes to choose from, we plucked for Frank (Putt Up Or Shut Up), which included a slide, clown filled jacuzzis, a treadmill and pool table! Kathleen […]

Sky Garden

As well as The Shard, we explored the Sky Garden on Fenchurch Street. With a view 155 metres above the capital, it gave us another chance to marvel at the city in which we dwell, but this time for free. The gardens up there are also magnificent, and are a very tranquil place.

One of the things Kathleen kept mentioning she wanted to do since she came to London this time was The Shard. I booked it for a Saturday evening, beforehand swinging in to have dinner at the Hotel Chocolat restaurant, Rabot 1745. Our journey up to the 72nd floor was timed just before the sunset over […]

Thorpe Park

Since Kathleen came to London and we got talking, I promised I’d take her to a British theme park. Thorpe Park was that first theme park! The weather was a mixed bag, including heavy rain, hail and sunshine in between. We rode: Colossus Nemesis Inferno (x2) Stealth The Swarm Angry Birds 4D Experience Rush Vortex […]

The London Dungeon

My first time at The London Dungeon was in January 2014 with Grace, Iwan & Lauren from my life group. I couldn’t wait to show Kathleen one of my favourite London attractions that changes all the time. For this one, I got my longest and dearest friend Christopher involved. It was also a great opportunity […]

Magic Lantern Festival

Technically not a date, as neither of us had confessed to liking each other, but it was certainly a great thing to do together and we got to know more about one another. Taking place at Chiswick House and Gardens, the Magical Lantern Festival was a festival of light celebrating the Chinese New Year. You […]

Live At The Chapel

After our visit to the Creme Egg Cafe, we headed to Islington where Kathleen introduced me to┬áVietnamese food in the form of pho. Then it was time for another first for Kathleen; a British comedy gig! Union Chapel is a great venue that I’ve visited several times when The Invisible Dot has put on evenings […]
