Yesterdays evening at the tower of London was spectacular! We were greeted with a glass of bubbles and got an exclusive tour of the tower as well as of the Crown Jewels. Half way through the tour as I was admiring the biggest diamonds and jewels of the world I was surprised by a reader also invited to the tour recognising me from the blog. This is actually the first time someone’s come up to me and said hello so I was a bit struck but happily so! What are the odds when touring the tower of London in a small invited group of 50? :D
I had the best intentions of being a good blogger and brought the giant camera with me, but unfortunately I didn’t have much luck as the rain was pouring down and we weren’t allowed cameras around the jewels or anything interesting. I really wish I could’ve snapped a few photos for you of all the diamonds. It’s hard to explain, each crown has over 3000 jewels in, some of them as big as a tennis ball. Apparently the largest diamond in the world was 3000 carat uncut, and it was turned into 9 jewels, the four largest of them were placed into some of the royal crowns and the rest are worn daily as broches by the Queen around the house.
To the beautiful and lovely reader: I thought we’d be able to have dinner together and speak more but that obviously failed as the table seating was planned. I looked for you when we were leaving but not easy to spot anyone under 50 umbrellas in the rain. I hope to bump into you again! :)
Now we just got back from the most delicious dinner at Amaya, a Michelin starred gourmet Indian fusion restaurant in Belgravia. I can’t praise this reaturant enough, it’s the most delicious Indian food I’ve ever had and I’m never stepping my foot into Brick Lane again! I can’t wait to come back, and when I do I will bring the camera and take lots of photos for you :)
Hope you’re enjoying the weekend! xx
