BOOO! Did I scare you? No. Okay.
Our last full day of our trip happened to be the same day as Halloween. October 31st. I'm not a fan of Halloween so this day actually meant nothing to me in terms of "holiday" but it was a sad day nonetheless.
After being extremely lazy in the morning and not leaving the flat till about 2pm, my sister and I arrived at a train station only to find out that a little earlier someone had been hit and thus killed by a train. That made the day slightly eerie. Once we found a train, since a casualty causes delays, we headed towards Hampton Court. Hampton Court was the home of King Henry VIII. My sister had never seen it before and neither had I and this was the one place my sister really wanted to visit. We reached our destination at about 3:15ish in the afternoon and walked over to Hampton Court.
We went over to the ticket window. CLOSED.
That's right, the window was closed. "Closed at 3:30pm"...the time, 3:33pm.
BIG FAT SIGH OF FRUSTRATION, followed up by BIG FAT LAUGHTER SIGH.
My sister and I just stood there shaking our heads at each other and laughing. The next train wasn't for another 45 min or so, so we just decided to take photos outside of Hampton Court. So here you go.....
Saw this poster while heading to the museum, that was annie the night prior.We had to walk through the underground to get to the museum, my feet hurt really bad but we made it. Got to the exhibit doors.....oh....and they had just closed. Bravo.
We decided to just look around the fashion exhibits which I had seen before but would not argue about seeing again. I mean vintage Dior, hellllloooo.
We had some time to kill...not much but some. We decided to go shopping and spend the last bit of our money buying clothing and candy, and also sheets. Cheap sheets. If you are brilliant, you could guess that Halloween+white sheets=ghost costume. That's what me and Annie were for Halloween, classy ol' ghosts.
Yep, that's me behind someone I do not know.
