United Kingdom

Last week I went to the United Kingdom to visit my friend. The trip was nice, but was slightly ruined by the fact that I had a horrible allergic reaction. My face swelled up like a balloon, I had rashes everywhere and my eyes were doing nothing but itch and run. So not the most pleasant vacation! It was still nice to meet my friend though, just a shame that I should get so sick.

This one's on me. Feel free to laugh at my appearance!

My misfortune during this holiday didn’t end with the allergic reaction though (which I’m now finally getting better from after getting some steroids from the doctor). When we were driving back to the airport, for my return flight we got stuck in a horrible traffic jam… And I missed my flight home!

I was really upset at the time. Fortunately I could get the next flight out later in the evening, but it was an extra expense that no one had planned for. We left early enough in the morning to have plenty of time for the drive. It was just such bad luck that there was a traffic jam quite that bad.

After a few days, this was the things we'd gotten in the UK...

A break for tea and biscuits at the airport since I had a five hour wait until the next flight.

Fortunately I had someone to keep me company while waiting.

Of course the only photo I own of the two of us together is with me having a bloated, messed up face from the allergic reaction.

Then I felt sorry for myself and bought this, since I wanted to bring back something other than steroids and antihistamines!
