For the summer I visited my best friend's house in the next city over.
On Wednesday we went shopping in the city centre! Pancakes for breakfast and hitting every shop possible It's really rare I shop like this but it's fun once in a while.
We went to hobbycraft, manga and game stores, as well as the oriental shop that has lots of yummy snacks and drinks! I love the canned coffee and having pocari sweat makes me feel like an anime protagonist haha.
We got these 'bubble tea' mochi that are milk tea flavoured and have a tapioca pearl inside. They're so tasty!
On Thursday we went to a conservatory aquarium. Conservatory aquariums house rescue animals which are then either released back into the wild or rehomed at larger conservatories when appropriate. We had a book an appointment because of how things are at the moment, but it was still busy.
There were less animals and there was a one-way system which means we couldn't go around again like we usually do (the can badge gacha machine was gone too), but it was still fun.
I love seeing the penguins and the jellyfish. I can't believe it's been almost a whole year since I last saw them.
On Monday, we took a trip to the local art gallery and then the old town. We were rushed through the gallery which sucked a little, considering it was completely empty, but we still got to see most of the paintings.
My favourite piece though is the carved marble(?) statue of Jeanne D'Arc.
Last year we spent the whole day in the gallery from morning until it shut, doing studies of various paintings and sculptures. It's very different than using a photo. It's a shame we couldn't do it this time. I hope we can next year.
After that we spent a long time in the old town infront of minster. It's such a pleasant, relaxing area! Lots of other people were drawing there or working on laptops.
There's an indoor market next to it which we had a look at, which had loads of different kinds of small food places. We were going to get pizza cones, but it was shut, so we got gyros from a greek stall instead. They were so delicious!
I could eat those every day... at the end of the day we got noodles. They were good, but had nothing on the street food.
We spent a lot of the time drawing and grinding the Fate/GO summer event too. So long. The story was good and I'm glad I finished it, but I'm dreading BB's next event.
