på laurdag våga me oss endelig ut av huset etter å ha vore sjuke ei heil veke. me tok toget til hampton court for vårt første national trust-besøk. eg hadde lada to analoge kamera med film, me hadde lunsj og vatn i veska og var så klare for å møta verda att. me kjøpte billettar og hoppa over dørstokken inn til det enorme hampton court. min favorittdel var hagane med labyrint og det enorme maleriet på bilder under her som faktisk var eit vegg- og takmaleri.
on saturday we finally had summoned the courage to move outdoors after being held in bed by the flu for a week. we took the train to hampton court for our first national trust visit. i had loaded two cameras with film, we had lunch and water packed and were so ready to see the world again. we bought tickets and hopped over the threshold to the enormous hampton court. my favorite part was the gardens with a maze and the huge painting that you can see under here, which actually was a wall and ceiling job.
we walked up and down big stone steps and through gravel for hours before we were exhausted and they were closing the castle anyway.
we bought some soft serve ice cream, walked over the bridge to the train station and home.
