Knoops, hot chocolate

Went here when I was in Rye. Truly amazing hot chocolate. Probably the best I’ve tasted in years, ever.

Stay in a windmill

I stayed here at the beginning of December. In Rye. It’s a beautiful place and Rye is lovely to visit any time of the year.

Yeah, we’re staying on a boat!

There’s a lot to be said for actually checking emails and stuff like that. Just a week or so ago I went away with some friends only to find out at the last minute that we were staying on a boat. I probably should’ve checked emails and the like, but I didn’t, so it was something of a surprise to me.

A good surprise though. The hotel was in Bratislava, on the Danube, and was perfectly adequate.

A flying visit to Vienna

On a recent trip with friends we had just a single day in Vienna. Which was fun. We managed to do the Ring Tram which is fun and only takes about 30 minutes. I wish I’d had longer to explore, but perhaps another time.

The Musical Museum

This is a place I’ve been meaning to visit for a very long time, but as it’s only open on very specific days of the week. But a couple of Saturday’s ago I managed to get there. It’s a lovely place. Somewhere that anyone in London should visit if they have any interest in musical instruments, especially the mechanical kind.

It’s small, much smaller than the one by the same name in Brussels, but it is great and I’m sure that I’ll be going again.

It was a pub, now what is it?

Such a shame really. Ok, it wasn’t the best pub in the world, but it was ok. It wasn’t terrible by any means. I had happy times there.

It makes me sad to see that there are so many pubs shutting down. It’s a bad sign. It says that communities aren’t finding places to be together anymore. That’s not good in any way.

The V&A Museum of Childhood

Only the second time I’ve visited this museum, and this time I had a lot more time. It’s such a lovely place. So much there, and so many things that bring back memories of when I was a child.

If you haven’t ever visited it’s well worth it. There’s loads to see even though it’s a really small place. I’m sure I’ll be back there again in the not too distant future.
