How are you all doing on this wonderful Monday? I hope you’re feeling good. I, on my behalf, am feeling absolutely fantastic. The past few days couldn’t have been any better. I went down to Brighton with my friend on Saturday, had the best last shift at work yesterday and tomorrow I’ll be seeing Tom (Rosenthal, duh) for a special Christmas gig. And, let’s not forget, I’ll be on my way home in two days. Absolute perfection. And also, another thing I did last week, which is also the reason for today’s post, is that I visited the Natural History Museum here in London with my friend Lauren. And oh wow, it was absolutely fantastic. As you can probably guess, I couldn’t resist taking my camera with me to snap some pictures, which I can’t wait to share with you today.
Before we get into the mass beautiful black and white shots, here’s a walkthrough of the whole experience. For a start – I walked in and immediately felt like I had stepped into Disneyland. I’m not even joking. Because, hear me out, there was this huge escalator right at the entrance that disappeared into a planet-like orb at the top. Have any of you ever been to Disneyland and seen the Space Mountain roller coaster? Because this might as well have been the entrance to that. I was amazed. And after that little “ride” on that escalator (HA), the museum continued to blow me away with every single part of the exhibition. There were an earthquake simulator, glass cases full of twinkling diamonds and gems, too many to count them, the skeleton of a whale and even a complete model of the moon floating in the middle of a room. All in all, it was absolutely magical and I enjoyed every second of it. Not to mention that just the plain sensation of walking through the beautiful building was absolutely incredible. I couldn’t help but feel like I had just entered Hogwarts as we walked into the main hall.
If you ever get the chance to visit the museum, I can only highly recommend it. It’s so much fun and really damn interesting. And, on top of that, it’s a treat for your wallet, because it’s completely free. What is there not to love about that? But yeah, until then I hope you enjoy reading about my little adventure and the pictures down below. As always, I would love to hear from you, so please don’t hesitate to leave your comments and thoughts down below. And, of course, I wish you all a great week and thanks for reading. x
