since i have quite a few photos from my trip to south africa to post i figured i'd break them up by posting uk only shots on the weekend. so, the weekend after we returned from holiday we had planned to go to center parcs in sherwood forest with a bunch of mates. basically an upscale version of a christmas meet up that we try and do every year. this time we figured it would be good to chase away the post christmas blues (an in our case the post holiday blues). after looking at the options we decided to spend that little bit extra and book an executive lodge. as it turned out it didn't look anything like the pictures, to the extent that i shudder to think what the 'comfort' villas are like... probably just a hole in the ground. anyways it did, as it claimed, have a sauna complete with this freezing outdoor shower. i didn't partake myself, something about sweating your bollocks off in tiny, steamy room before freezing them off outside under a shower, and then repeating the cycle didn't quite appeal to me.
these are all the countries of which i've posted photos
