The Zambezi Express and A Visit to Minchinhampton Common

Minchinhampton TreeOn Saturday I headed over to Bristol for the weekend to spend some time with my sister Rebekah and her fiance Tim. In the evening evening we headed up on to the Clifton Downs to watch the Zambezi Express – an African musical based around the tale of one boy’s pursuit of the ultimate footballing dream, from the backstreets of a Zimbabwe township to triumph in South Africa.

On Sunday we headed out in to Gloucestershire where we first tried to visit the National Arbouretum at Westonbirt but were put off by the thousands of cars. So we drove on to Minchenhampton Comon where we took a walk on the common. I made friends with some highland cattle as well as pretending to be a tree. We also enjoyed a drink at the old Lodge pub before returning to Bristol. I returned to Swindon on Sunday Evening.
