Arriving in Southampton

Added on Sun, 27 Feb 2011 12:05 GMT+0, from England

Hey friends!

I'm writing you from Southampton (south coast of the UK). I decided to visit my friend Niklas over here quiet spontaneously and could manage to book flights for less than 40 Euro, for Friday 25th February, from Cologne to London Gatwick. Arriving in Gatwick, I took the Southern Railway to Southampton Ctl Station (about 1.5 hrs, 4.5 Pounds).
When Niklas collected me, we had to wait for my friend Jill, who decided to accompany me on this trip, since she wanted to come to England some day as well!

On that day, we brought our luggage home and then walked through the city to see some interesting places like (I always want to see that) shopping malls, parks, a WW2 memorial an many more things (just see the pictures). In the evening, we went to a bar in the city to have some drinks.

And again we could see, that English people (especially the women) don't mind the very low temperatures in the winter, concerning their clothes. I was freezing, even in a pullover plus winter jacket!

Yesterday, we slept until midday, until Niklas prepared a typical English breakfast (he didn't use as much oil and fat as usual used in England, but it's still been way to much!!). Since it was raining cats and dogs all day, we didn't go out until the early afternoon. We stayed inside the house, watched HIMYM series and cooked 'Spaghetti Carbonara'.
We all were looking forward to a concert in Southampton, where the band "Naked & Famous" was about to play. Unfortunately, we didn't have a ticket reservation, since this concert was already sold out in December 2010. So, we missed it ... what a pity!
We went to the bar again instead.

There's no plan for today yet, but I will keep you up to date!

See you soon, mates!! ... (and see the pictures)
