A Night to Remember

Summer vacation is here! Lazy days, warmth, training for yet another triathlon race, and… a sudden surprise trip to London to see Adele? What? O.o

Because of unforeseen and very unfortunate circumstances that had fallen a friend, I found myself holding two tickets to see one of Adele’s Wembley Stadium shows (!!!!).

Of course, after 6 months of applications after applications, seeing the end gets harder and harder while the pile of certificate applications only seems to rise higher and higher. Hopefully we will have a normal situation by March, haha! Just in time for spring rush.
