I've always said that the best thing about blogging is meeting other bloggers. I have met a few bloggers in real life like Laurie, Sam and Ruth in London. I also met up with April in Las Vegas last year! So in August I got to finally meet my friend Holly from New Zealand!
Holly is coming over for teaching experience and to try something new. I just love that she was 26 hours away and now only 3 hours from me. It was so good to finally meet her after about 4 years of blogging and tweeting each other. I hope she wasn't too offended when I said I thought she sounded more Aussie than Kiwi!
We went round London for the afternoon. I introduced her to Big Ben so she could hear him chime. We went and visited Westminster Abbey (where Kate and William got married), then I took her to Buckingham Palace to meet the Queen (haha I wish!) Afterwards we just talked and talked while we walked and walked. It was really fun to be open with each other and finally talk face to face! In the evening I took her for Japanese food and at the end she gave me Kiwi chocolate!!!! I loved it!
Holly I am so glad we're finally IRL friends. We better see each other soon, as now we don't have oceans and countries blocking our way!
