Business mixed with pleasure this Christmas break at Khamis Design. We had the fantastic opportunity to head to London, England to meet with some associates. But that’s the boring part that no one wants to hear about – on to the fun we got to have in between!
As we mentioned on Facebook thousands of photos were taken – but what do you expect when you’ve got Ali and Tracy along for the ride. While it took much pain and arm twisting to get them to cut it down to just their favourites under 60 on Facebook, Lynn wasn’t so hard on them here – under 300 was the only thing for which she begged. (Editor’s note – yup!). Hence why it took us so long to put these up!
We hope you enjoy getting to see but a fraction of our trip (it’s amazing how many places don’t let you take photos!). We’ve all decided we must do this again, so prepare yourself for even more photos then. 🙂
And feel free to give Ali a call if you’d like to hear him wax poetically about our fantastic dinner at Dinner. Yup, well it’s really called: Dinner by Heston Blumenthal. We’ve never seen anyone not want to leave a restaurant before (the wait staff gave us hugs as we left!). Or ask Lynn about the many, many hours she spent staring at bottles of wine at Hedonism Wines while Tracy and Ali shopped. Yeah, the one that doesn’t drink – it was strange and very scary (Editor’s note – I’m all elbows in a room of glass bottles!). And be sure to ask Tracy about achieving her goal of making it all the way to the top of St. Paul’s Cathedral (500+ stairs)!
Oh, and before you check out the photos, be sure to watch the BBC video of the New Year’s Eve fireworks. We waited at the Embankment for 6 hours to see these live! But not to worry, we still have all our toes – it was darn cold that night. And rainy. But what do you expect. 🙂
