And as another month draws to a close, another cultural month has been completed. I’m very pleased with myself actually, this is the longest I’ve kept up a New Year Revolution. Week 1 of February, Week 5 of the Year, was a trip to Vue Cinema in Leicester Square in London to see the cinema phenomenon: Avatar. Amazing. I have no words to describe how incredible I found this film. The half bottle of wine had at dinner beforehand certainly helped the 3D atmosphere and I just loved the cross between the Smurfs and Pocahontus. Week 6 was a weekend in Tonbridge Wells (see ‘The Beautiful Weekend’ post). Such a quaint, gorgeous town. And yes it is a town, anywhere with a Starbucks is officially a town. Week 7 was a trek to Birmingham where I saw the University in snowfall. Very beautiful, and most cultural – it has it’s own Art Gallery and Concert Hall! Whilst Week 8 was a trip to Glasgow (see ‘Glasgow’ post). I’ll let you read about that in post devoted to it.
I’m having such a great time of this Cultural Year, I would really recommend it. It gives me a stress release, a focus and interests besides every day life. Love it. Laters.
