Last Saturday there was a small gathering of Travellerspointers in London that I was able to attend. Originally planned by Hien to coincide with Holly's (soupatrvlr) stay, I got to meet a few members that I've only ever virtually chatted with before (soupatrvlr, 3L, magykal1 and t_maia), as well as say hi again to a couple that I had at some stage had the honour of meeting somewhere across the globe (GregW, Hien)
A big thanks to Greg and Hien for the planning. Tattershall's was a good place to start it off, and the sausages and mash (with red onion, yum) there really hit the spot! We then took in the big black box and other assorted artwork at the Tate, before stopping at a pub that apparently featured in Bridget Jones', Lock Stock and a Harry Potter movie, on the way to All Bar One (yes, another pub). Topping it off was dinner at a souk. By the end of that my 4.30 wake up call that morning had me pretty nackered, and the thought of another 4.30 wake up call on Sunday left the smart side of my brain saying goodbye to the others.
Here's two pics I took (yes, I should have taken more!)
Hien deserves extra thanks for letting me crash at his place because I was too cheap to even spend the 7 pounds that would have gotten me into one of Travellerspoint's dirt cheap London hostels
