its hard to forget the day when I visited Westminster’s Abbey on my own. It was snowing slightly, freezing outside, I was tempted way beyond words to stay back,wear my woolen socks. sipping the mulled wine to watch a movie. But no, that day energy was running at its peak my body.

When you are around, all you have to look up and you see the time.

  

Beyond this place all you have is your eyes to capture the breath taking architecture and absorb all the fragrance of the beauty.

With so many kings and queens bodies resting in peace you dont feel the presence of divinity but you feel the presence of quiet ghosts

 

Beautiful but little plumpy, on the wonderful day like this why grumpy?

Only problem when you travel alone is you have all pictures except you in it.

Its a must visit place, entry fees is bit pricey but worth spending.

When I was tired walking, exploring on the cold day, his mere statue felt consoling. I was walking on those street just a month before the attack. I feel fortunate not to be present there to witness the human slaughter in name of religion.

Whats new: The lazy ass finally did her solo trip not to euro but to Scotland. Who says you cant do things on your own terms:)

img_20170108_131713268  img_20170108_133136600The story behind Stonehenge is interesting, like the heritage itself. Some says it used to burial ground may be that is why the crow is sitting there communicating with invisible but still living things.

Every time it gazes at its peers catching up, on black moon day, or boxing day when noisy humans disappear, I am sure this lone guy will sit and weep at its ugly fate to be outcasted.img_20170108_135359441

Weekend At Harrods

Posted: January 28, 2017 in Gallery, TransOceanic

It is better to be on your own rather than having a annoying company. Gearing  up all the energy, with broad smile on the face, my heart was jumping like junkie Roy, when I stepped out of  Knights-bridge tube station, on my own. Last week when I wasted my weekend just warming up the spring bed, I was determined to visit the place which I always wanted to. HARRODS.

img_20170108_100938868So what it was raining, Castle looked still amazing

img_20170108_101206980The passageimg_20170108_101253111There I found one more Indian and my joy was multiplied

img_20170108_101824309  Can you see a cathedral far far away?No ?Rub your eyes and see againimg_20170108_104051919The view from inside the castle

As the photography was prohibited I couldnt capture the Dolls house,Ball room, dining room, dressing room,Sitting room, Garter Throne room,Kings bedroom, queens bedroom and god knows how many. I loved the Dolls house with wine seller, house keeping room, laundry room, servants room, kitchen, Kings bedroom, queens bed room. They had separate room, which shows even king and queen loved their space.  only disappointing thing was that their room didnt have huge window from where you can see sun rise or sun set.  I loved the queens private room with huge dressing table and chairs for her friends to sit and chat

img_20170108_111010019This the private sector which is closed for public. Queen and her family lives here  img_20170108_111207573Clouds flew to their dear ones clearing the view which their were blocking with ugly fat ass

And they lived happily ever After

img_20170108_151652916Bath is beautiful place which one shouldn’t miss. I wasnt so lucky because the bath museum was only on was on my fate.

img_20170108_152805728When Roman’s invaded UK(When I heard I was happy, at least someone invaded their privacy like they did others. Sadist of me, dont blame me, blame the history). they constructed this open hot bath. The architecture is so mind blowing I am sure no one could have imagined about it

img_20170108_153806477

img_20170108_153948586All I wanted to do is plunge in to the pool from first floor. It was their warning “Do not touch the water its not clean” warning stopped me.

img_20170108_155153361In those days many people used to visit bath to get cured of their diseases. There was saying if they could not get healed in Bath they could not get healed anywhere

img_20170108_155243139

img_20170108_155424554I love Romans.

img_20170108_161546621In that quiet evening after seeing the spectacular bath music was so soothing I couldnt stop humming the song. I heard there was a secret call…..Aleluia, Aleluia

img_20170108_161558970And yeah Bath is always about BATH

img_20170108_161728226And there far away in Bath I found a Indian restaurant:)

img_20170108_162140119Its mind blowing. May be I should find a guy from Bath and settled down in Bath enjoying Roman Bath

img_20170107_094720564Pouring rain, bone chilling wind  I dont care. I love my freedom but i am deprived of love

img_20170107_094810367

I sit on strangers foot step when I am tired with hope

img_20170107_094828312

So what I am orphan I dont know a single minute which is not exciting

img_20170107_094835062

Hope I had a loving family

img_20170107_094852218

bowl of warm milk, slice of tuna, tiny dry spot more than that a loving home is all I need

img_20170107_095008435

Let me in, I am a nice cat.I wont purr, I wont whimper I will just sit at the corner out of your wayimg_20170107_095016822

Can you please let me in.img_20170107_095019965

Humans, let me in I am Edna, the stray cat of your lane!!!img_20170107_095045461_censored

I am not fortunate but I am lucky because the small heart inside me still beats. I wait like always until the door to my fate to be opened, and picked up by loving arms ocean full of assurance “It is going to be alright, I will be always there for you. It is ok”. Its  not the time it matters it is the patience which counts.
