Tomorrow i’m heading off to London for a few days, mainly to see the New Year’s Eve fireworks up close…
List of things to do
Every year i’m usually watching the New Year’s Eve celebrations on TV / with a TV in the background and Big Ben / London Eye is always the center of attention. There’s always a stupid amount of fireworks let off in a bid to compete with other cities who put on a similar show. This year it’ll be the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee plus London is hosting the 2012 Olympics so it’s a big year for London. So this year, i’ll be there with my girlfriend, along with 250,000 others.
Apparently the viewing areas fill up by about 7pm which means you have a 5 hour wait in the cold and possibly rain. In order to avoid the crowds & prevent getting ‘stuck’ in the one spot (police close off sections when they fill up & you can’t get back in), we’ll probably go elsewhere to see the display which will mean we’ll be further away and probably won’t get a full unobstructed view, but at least we’ll have some breathing space.
I’ll worry about 2012 when i get home
I’ve got plenty to do when i get back and i’m eager to set lots of challenges for myself in 2012 but not until i get back home. As usual, i’ll have hundreds of photos & videos from my trip up on this blog on January 3rd / 4th…
