As I have been stressing this term to the level that it is ridiculous and at some point it just felt funny #notsofunny how everything can go so wrong.
I decided my personal shrink Ance decided that I need to chill. In the evening of six-days-before-deadline, when the end of the tunnel seemed as dark as that Alexander Wang collection, we decided that we really want to see some eagles. Happens to all of us. I know. Action plan was set and we googled this Birds Of Prey Centre near Bedford (where by no way we could get using public transport) so the next morning with a little help from a friend (who very surprisingly said yes to our bird watch urge) a car was rented and on the way we were. Alright, there was a tiny bit of backstory why we wanted to see these birds but for the sake of sounding completely spontaneous and nerdy at the same time lets leave it like that hahahaha...
First of all I can't even explain how much I love road trips and driving out of London. Secondly there are some common knowledge rules about what to do when you go to countryside:
1. Dress warm. Like layers!!!
2. Don't wear your expensive shoes #mudeverywhere
Lets just put it like this... one of us didn't follow these rules and it wasn't me or Ance hahaha
Anyways it was one of the coolest days I have had in some while and the birds were majestic!
P.S. This is Ance making friends with owl. The big guns a.k.a. that incredible eagle that I could nearly hold came later!
