Filming a documentary for BBC3 definitely has its perks. We were both invited down to London to meet up with the filming crew and other members of the documentary, but whilst we were already there, we thought, why not make a weekend out of it? I'd never been to London before, so I was quite overwhelmed with the feeling of being underdressed, the amount of coffee shops and knowing that is the closet I will ever get to the Queen.



Jacob is progressing, slowly but surely, which meant that he still needs his wheelchair full time. So when you place a wheelchair and London in the same sentence, it becomes a bit complicated. We stuck to what we knew we could manage, the Tate, the Natural History Museum, the Museum of Science. To some it sounds oh so boring, but I have to say, we loved it.

Travelling around the city in Ubers, as sad as it sounds, has to be my highlight. We drove into the city to our hotel and that was crazy enough. Knowing we didn't have to stress about the traffic, one way streets and cyclists, it meant that we could just sit back, relax and see the sights. The London Eye, Big Ben, a man walking his ferret, you know, the normal stuff.


We had both never been to London, so we know that there is so much more to explore. But with the current situation, it was what we could manage. Who knows, maybe we could go in the future when the circumstances are different. Where would you recommend to go in London?
