Alton Towers

Storybook Land EntranceI would say yesterday was "a day of disasters and adventures". Believe it or not, there were so many things happened to make the day felt worse and worse!
It started with Lan, who forgot to bring his Y-P Rail Card, and had to pay the normal price to avoid being fined on the train. Then, our first train to Crewe was delayed for 15 minutes and we missed the second train and had to wait for another hour to our destination. *just great* It made me wonder... 'Will we get to the themepark at all today?!'
After an hour wait, finally we got on the train to the final destination. However... when we get there, we found out that the bus to go to Alton Towers will not arrive until an hour later. Arrrggghhh... some more waitingggggggggg!!! There was no toilet, no warm place and the wind was so cold and strong.
Lan & II felt that it was a complete disaster and the whole day was ruined. We were planning to get to the themepark in the morning, so we can make the most of it, but it turned out that it was already mid-day and we haven't reached the themepark at all. Everything went okay from the point we got on the bus and onwards.
The themepark was so HUGE that we tried to explore every bit of it as quick as possible to be able to see all of them. (And I found out that we missed two sections of the parks. Well, that's not too bad.)
We went on the first ride, where the thing spins around the circle. Too bad for Lan, that after that ride, his stomach went upset. He said, 'Maybe I am getting too old for this thing.' Hehehe... So there I was, going on each ride by myself. It was less fun without him, but I wanted to make the most of it.

Beautiful GardenAlton Towers is not all about rides. In there, there is an old tower and a HUGE beautiful garden. The tower is an authentic some-kind-of-medieval tower. We went in there and got the sense of going back to the old time. So hugeeee!!! We went round, round and round... I wonder how did the people, who lived there in the old times, manage to not get lost?
Unto the garden, 'beautiful, spacious and peaceful', those are words I used to explain my amazement! There is a waterfall, a pagoda, a lake and all kinds of plants. We could wander around there for the whole day and keep saying how pretty it is. I kept saying: "I wish I can have a garden like this." It is a perfect place to just sit, enjoy the sun and relax... Ahh... Perfecto!

Lan with upset stomachI had great fun in the park, despite of the disastrous morning. I felt bad for Lan whose stomach is upset even until we got on the train back to Liverpool. At least the coming back journey went smoothly, unlike the outward journey. Well, I said to Lan: "Next time, you organise everything, when we have any plans. I feel dumb and stupid enough already with this huge mistake." One thing that Lan said to me: "I will never again go to the themepark! Once is enough to experience an upset stomach!" Hahaha...

Ps. Thank you, Lan, for not being mad at me because of this disastrous plan and for putting up with me the whole day and letting me have fun, when you had stomach ache. Thank you, dear.

  16. Kom op!! "A day of disasters and adventures" juga diperlukan dalam hidup ini, Nie.
    Kalo semuanya berlangsung lancar en wajar saja, di mana dong adventurenya? 'gak akan ada kenangan yg khusus buat diinget-inget deh.

    Life is adventures, toch? :)
