First impressions: Part I

Finally - blog post about my journey and first impressions of UK.

As you know I now live in UK. Trying to make a better life for myself and my family in Lithuania. Yes, I'm a good girl lol.

And now - prepare for a nice blog post with loads of photoooos!!! (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

My boyfriend and I came here by agency which is total sh!t if you ask me which told us that we're departing the next day! Now that's awesome lol not. So my mom and I packed all night till it was only few hours left...


I was so confused and scared that I couldn't sleep so I just lied in my bed full of thoughts and slept only like 2 hours... ( ̄□ ̄)

We travelled by bus which was one of the most horrific experiences I've recently had lol... The first impression when entering UK - a lot of green fields, sheeps and new shiny cars. Haha.

My first city. Northampton.

We've settled in a hotel for a week. And this is what we've realised about our stay in Ibis hotel:


Northampton is a really calm and peaceful city lol. Not many shops, not impressive city centre. Northampton looked kinda small to me. I'm used to bigger cities more haha.

Sightseeing!

I realised that there's soooo many pigeons here!!! So I took a photo of this fabulous pigeon in front of the nice church in the city centre:

Fabulous!

There was this fake owl sitting on top of this...thing... And I really had no idea why the hell would it sit there:


But the thing that really captured my eyes were these metal spikes on the sides:


Okay so this is just creepy. I noticed there are a lot of these spikes on top of important buildings, fancy fences and so on. So it should protect buildings from pigeons and their crap but sometimes I just watch how they just sh!t everywhere doesn't giving a damn about those spikes lol. ┐( ̄ー ̄)┌

I learnt something during my sightseeing...

Sometimes the easiest job is the hardest...

You had one job...

Sleeping in the church's graveyard is prohibited... (╥_╥) ...


Sunsets are beautiful everywhere... Doesn't matter where you are... 。◕‿◕。


And so while staying in a hotel I finally tasted the real British breakfast!


Taken with my old phone so excuse me lol.
I actually loved everything about this breakfast except beans. Omg that sauce and those beans were so disgusting!! I usually love beans but this was just eww... But you know what? I think you need to get used to it because now after some time I like them hahaha.

During the first weeks in UK I was almost sure that I will get hit by a car or something. It took me quite a lot of time to switch road sides. I always would look at the wrong side while crossing the road and I was feeling like a moving bowling pin lol...


Yeaaaah that's about it...


The journeys home like these were scariest haha. Sitting on top of the big tall bus. I was already scared that it might just lose control and fall on the side when it was driving so fast in roundabouts but it also freaked me out because of the side it was riding. Gosh it always scared the hell out of me thinking that it's driving the wrong side and this car coming in front is gonna crash into us. loooool (〜 ̄▽ ̄)〜

What I love about UK - sooo many beautiful parks! Small or big - you just choose which one!
So the day to the park - my boyfriend decided to do a photoshoot with the clothes he actually bought for me hahaha XD




Walking a long rooooad. Actually grass. A lot of grass.

I'm totally serious right now.


And guess what? First time in my life I saw a square hot air balloon!! So funny!


Aaaaaand my first every ice cream truck I saw in real life. 


Yes, I kept running to the window few more weeks whenever I heard that music lol へ(゜∇、°)へ

So I'm gonna finish this first part of my first impressions blog post with this deliciously looking pie topped with sh!tloads of whipping cream together with huge cup of yummy coffee. ♥(ノ´∀`)♥


Stay impressed, eat something yummy and wait for the part II!~
