When it’s the holidays, I start thinking of how to make the most of my time before I have to go back to normal life. This year, I’m spending Christmas in England with my family. A lot of my family have travelled across the seas to spend the holidays so it feels weird spending the bulk of the holiday sleeping and staying at home.
Yesterday, we decided to go to Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park, London. This was my first time going to Winter Wonderland and I got there in the evening and did not stay for very long. I do not like going on scary rides; I get scared even on some of the milder ones. I only went in the bumper cars. I was reluctant at first to ride the bumper cars because I had done this many times and wanted to try something else. In the end, I only went in the bumper cars and didn’t go on any other rides.
There was a lot of food being sold and my friend bought Chinese stir-fried noodles. I wondered if it was junk food and she said it was spaghetti and chicken so not junk food. If you are interested in knowing if the Chinese take-away you’re consuming is junk food, you can read this page here by the NHS. Junk food or no junk food, I had mini pancakes and a grilled chicken skewer. I said I was “treating” myself; the #fitfam life was on a break.
I really enjoyed going even though I didn’t go any rides and I would strongly recommend going if you’re looking for a place to go with bae, family or friends. If you go, don’t forget to withdraw cash as it costs more to use the cash points at Winter Wonderland and look after your personal possessions there. You don’t want to leave knowing your phone got stolen there.
Have a Merry Christmas
