Bucket list trip to Wimbledon

SP8_3211It was May when we received the phone call offering us tickets to Wimbledon. It wasn’t a hard decision and once we knew we could have the time off everything was set into motion. We booked the train and paid for the tickets. SP8_3205

4:50am – ALARM ALARM ALARM, oh my goodness why am I doing this to myself, why must I be so vain. Shower, clothes, make up.

5:45am – We are heading to the train station and I am knackered

8:30am – We arrive in London.

After grabbing some brunch and walking around Euston, I got myself an oyster card and took my first trip on the underground. I must say it wasn’t too bad. We arrived at Wimbledon Park and passed through bag check. Once inside I was mesmerized by the beautiful flowers and decorations, I kept thinking about the amount of preparation that went into creating an event like this.

We checked out the gift shop and practice courts before heading into court 1. The match was incredible it lasted 3.5 hours and had the crowd on the edge of their seats. Both sides deserved the win that day. We could even hear the Williams match on center court.

Of course we had to have the obligatory strawberries and cream as well as an ice cold pimms, it rounded our day off nicely. Honestly it was one of the best experiences I have ever had and if you can, go. We were extremely lucky and I want to thank Jane who thought of us and offered us the tickets.
