Today we spent about six hours in trains. It's a lot of time and something to get used to during the next weeks, but it went surprisingly well. I spent more or less a third of the trips asleep, a third playing Marble Saga (STILL ON THE SAME DARN LEVEL) and a third reading junky shallow gossip......... I mean quality magazines. (Cosmopolitan&a pair of sunglasses&strawberry Mentos&some random mints=£1. SO WORTH THE MONEY, I love you Britain.)
We left on the 8.21 train from Seaford to London Victoria. We arrived there just before 10, starving. Neither me nor CC are too talented at making decisions, so finding a place to eat breakfast was not a prospect I was looking forward to... But stepping out of the station, we quickly found a nice enough pub, very Britishly called The Shakespeare - I put away my usual thoughts of "oh we shouldn't go into the first pub we see because it's probably boring and where everyone'll be and what if there's a better one round the corner" and we had an all round satisfactory English Breakfast, CC getting his Eggs Benedict as well as half my Full English. :)

|CC is happy|
|There were many statues around too|
|David Seaman and his hair <3|
|Jumping pictures must be taken obviously as well|
After the Stadium, made it just in time back for a 12.30 train to see our friend James in Ipswich. When I looked up Ipswich on wikipedia last night one of the main things that came up were the "Ipswich 2006 Serial Murders", ok, so not humongous expectations...
When I woke up from my slumber just before getting into the station, it was rainy. The town itself was a nice quaint British town, though James described it as "like a British Douai" and something about feeling claustrophobic stuck between Norwich and London.

|James, this is why I take pictures of food (OM NOM btw)|
Shopping obviously had to consist of trying on cool sunglasses as well...
|Ready for the Italian sun!|
But, I got donut peaches instead OM NOM. Are they actually called donut peaches or am I dreaming? Maybe they're called donut peaches in French or something...? I dunno. Two thingies for £1 though, BARGAINNNN.
|Donut peaches OM NOM|
Then back to Ipswich railway station, obviously some One Directioning on the way.
|Us singing What makes you beautiful - James is the BIGGEST fan|
|Me and my Douai boys, thanks for an epic day!|
|Pretty sky in Seaford|
PS. Question of the day (especially for James): Which member of One Direction would you like to be? ;)
