This time of year always feels a little bit manic, and this week feels especially so.
Friday I got the green light to travel to take some videos for work, and so after our annual holiday party on Saturday, I’ll be focusing on packing and planning and finding my passport to head off to jolly old England. Being half-British, I’ve spent plenty of time over there seeing family, but it’s been almost 4 years since I’ve set foot on my favorite island, and I’m excited to return.
Since all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, I’ll also be crossing one equestrian themed bucket list item off- the Olympia Horse Show. If you haven’t heard of it outright, you still probably know of it- it’s where the famous Shetland Pony Steeplechase is held every year, and where Valegro will retire one week from today. Sadly, the Thursday evening tickets (and many others) are all sold out, but I was able to snag a solid seat Saturday evening. Nothing says horse-obsessed like going to an equestrian performance by yourself, right?
Since I’ll be traveling solo, I’d love to know if there are any English bloggers out there who may be up for some shopping and galavanting about London this weekend. If you’re in the area, hit me up!
Sounds amazing! I hope you find a new friend to go with! It will be fun no matter what. I would go by myself if I had to. I expect a full report upon your return!
Long time lurker, first time poster but if you have a chance (and maybe you’ve done this) something fun to do is a ride through Hyde Park. I was on a business trip last year and booked a ride with Hyde Park stables. It was a bit surreal going from the mews across 4, 6? lanes of traffic to get to the park but the ride was lovely.
That is an EXCELLENT idea 🙂 Will look into it!
