So, a short time after Christmas, I invested money into the tickets, hotel room and train tickets, and started planning my outfit for the gig. Soon, I discovered another girl in my year was a MIYAVI fan and wanted to go to the concert, but had nobody to go with, so she ended up being dragged into coming with me and my mum (I may be 16 but my mum doesn't trust me in a hotel alone xD )
Finally, the day of the concert arrived, and I got ready to leave for London fully dressed in Sweet Lolita attire, something which I haven't come to regret thus far despite some interesting comments I received.
Me and mum were up at 5am, with enough time to fully make sure our suitcases were packed, we had everything we needed ticket-wise, and we looked okay for a day of travelling through England's capital. We met Martyna (the girl joining us) in town at 10:45 and got the bus to Swindon, which got interesting reactions due to my outfit choice. In Swindon, we caught the train to Reading Station where we had to change for Clapham Junction. Once we reached Clapham Junction, we had to change again for Shepherd's Bush. Finally, we arrived in London and made our way to the hotel.
We left our belongings and had a minor freak out (mum had left her credit card in the cash machine in town before leaving for Swindon) but we managed to cancel the card and sort everything out. We then left the hotel and headed for Europe's largest shopping centre, 'Westfield Shopping Centre' where there was a lot of expensive designer stores and food courts. We did some shopping and went to Nando's (for those of you not in the UK, Nando's is a chicken restaurant that has become very popular over here recently and I'm not too sure why) it was my first time eating in Nando's and to be honest it was nice but it hardly blew my mind.
