After brekkie we got ready and headed out to Stratford. I spotted a crowd around the Olympic Torch and Asif snapped me with it. I have attempted to see the Torch twice before, in Brentwood and Hornchurch and only saw a glimpse both times, so it looked like it was third time lucky on my birthday!
Then we got the train to Windsor where Asif had arranged a day out sightseeing. We walked around the castle walls, and near the entrance of the castle a horse drawn carriage was waiting for us. It was so romantic! The two horses were gorgeous, and we sat in a traditional carriage that took us through the grounds of Windsor Castle. It was absolutely lovely, and I was snapping away with my camera, while passers-by were also taking photos of us.
When we got back we had missed the last entrance to the castle, but we had a look around the outside anyway before hitting the shops and chilling.
This post is part of my 30 days of 30 project, where I plan to do something different for 30 days to mark my big birthday. If you have any suggestions of what I can do in September let me know below.
