British Countryside

"You played yourself. 
But did you, did you think you could really find love from someone else?"

I've been listening to Nsync again lately.. I don't know why, but their song never gets old. I always love Nsync.... and JC.

Oh yes!! It was snoooowing like you can see in the picture aboveee! But wait, it wasn't in London. London wasn't snowing like that, but I was in Bourton-on-the-Water! Two and a half hours drive from London.. I know, the name of the town is really cute! I DO LOVE LOVE LOVE THAT CITY SO BAD. I visited my auntie's childhood bestfriend there, she's been living here with her family for 13 years, that's long time I know. I stayed for three days and they took me everywhere during my stay.

When I said everywhere, I mean everywhere.

They drove me to Stonehenge and Bath at the first day and took me for a really nice (and expensive) dinner in Cheltenham. It was terribly cold and windy and raining that day... So so horrible. We were in Stonehenge for 10 minutes only, because it was really windy. I only took a few pictures and... we went back to the car. You know Stonehenge, right? This:

I even couldn't take a picture properly......... It was so so so windy that day.

Arrived in Bath, they said I need to go to the Roman museum.... which was I do not understand at all. I mean, the history value they said. I really really really did not understand, but I tried to enjoy anyway. And I finally did, when I found a hot spring. Standing there for like twenty minutes and taking a lot of pictures and got my body warmed...

The second day. Aunt Ellen's husband, Uncle Phillip got sick... I think it was because of me, I've been having a very bad cough these days. He stayed at home all day, while Aunt Ellen and I went to Stratford in the morning, to see Shakespeare's birthplace and stuff. I swear it was really really beautiful...... and we had a really nice wheater that day. Very sunny, eventhough it was still cold, but we've got some sunshine! A very rare thing in England.

After that we drove to another village... It was super far, like we drove for one hour away, but I mean, if I said one hour here in the countryside of England, it means that it's really really far. Not like in Jakarta, one hour is probably just from Pondok Gede Tol to Halim with traffic jam.

The important thing is what we were up to in that another village. Yes, we went to Aunt Parti's house, aunt Ellen's friend who has been living in England for 16 years, another Indonesian married to a british man and got two beautiful kids in their family! As far as I'm concerned, the house was SO big and pretty. Aunt Parti's husband, Uncle Mark had a birthday dinner and they invited us to come. You know, it was really something to me. I got to know the real british family. As soon as I arrived, they welcomed me soooooooooo nicely. I really really really love them. Grandma Margareth, Aunt Sue and Uncle Marc as well.

I always always always love british accent. I'd give anything for that. Really. Eventhough they said my english is really good, but my accent and grammar are just--no. Anyway, after I visited Millmore Family, I decided to marry a british man and live in England....... I wish. I wish.. I wish :))))

The third day, and I told you that the weather the day before was so beautiful, like you can see in the picture in Shakespeare's stuff. BUT that day, it was snowing. I woke up in the morning with Aunt Ellen's scream, "ECHAAA IT'S SNOWIIING GET UP!" because she knew I was dying to see snow... I was sleeping in Aunt Ellen's daughter, Abigail's room. She is really cute, but she's too shy and talks a little, we couldn't talk a lot. Abi also has a younger brother, Sammy and he's very very very cute and always smile. He does resemble his dad, always smile. Too bad that day, they had to go to school, although it was snowing. They were so upset that the school weren't off. So, after Uncle Phillip took the kids to school, while I was playing outside with the snow, we drove to the village....

They took me to eat in the british cafe and I ate British soup. Too bad my camera was died, so I couldn't take any pictures. It was so british: a bowl of veggie soup with slices of bread, bread with butter and a cup of english breakfast tea. I know it was expensive... But I don't understand, I think for them, paying 36 pounds for breakfast is normal. If you know what I mean.
After we finished our breakfast, we drove back home because I had to pack things. I got an hour to skype with Mom and show her the snow! Hahaha norak ya

Then they drove me to Cheltenham at 1 because my bus comes at 2.15. It was sad to leave, I really like that village... I promise myself, I'll be back in the future :)
