jayes_musings: (DW -- Five & Ten Kinky Sex Nao)

A little late in keeping up with my attempt to post weekly, but I hope it's going to be worth it. Monday, I just got back from my trip to England and a holiday with my bestie, [livejournal.com profile] gmnoonie. I did slip in a quick post of our very fun Just Jhoom class at CenterParcs, and we also enjoyed two very wonderful sessions at the sauna on site. Unfortunately, we were in the land of Internetless...and even 3G-less...which was frustrating. We did escape CenterParcs and took a day trip into Bath, meeting up with Noonie's daughter and daughter's friend for afternoon tea at the pump rooms. I may later post some pics of Bath, mainly of the Roman Baths.

But when we left CenterParcs on the Friday, we headed to Cardiff. Not only is that where Noonie's daughter is at Uni, but of course, it is the home of Doctor Who and Torchwood! And we couldn't be there and not go to the Doctor Who Experience! Actually, that was one of the main purposes of the trip. *g* (My apologies for the poor quality of some of the photos, I was using my tablet, which doesn't have the best camera and no flash :( ).

Now, in case any one else gets to visit, which I highly recommend if you are a Who-fan, I won't spoil the 'experience' part of the visit...except to say that it was very, very cool! But the exhibit after allowed photos, and our guide was so sweet, and very much a fan herself, which made it even better....in that we didn't feel at all bad about geeking out.

The way to the purpose built DW Experience is well signposted:


MY Doctor!

The actual set of Ten's TARDIS:

Yes, as you can tell, we all got a real thrill of being up close and personal with the old girl.


Davros with various incarnations of his creations.

Yes, they had Angels...they are just as terrifying...(Bonus: Oswin Oswald's Dalek in the background! Double bonus, the blur of Noonie's daughter.)

My favourite tin dog!

And just a few hundred yards away....Torchwood Tower!

No sign of Jack, but to prove I was there (Noonie and I did say we should've worn our long coats *g*).....

Such a pity I no longer have my Doctor Who icons loaded. Fixed that!

Dayum! I never got a notif on this!

It was...so much fun. Not many places where you can let your geek run rampant, and the staff fully understand!

Rampant geek running is dangerous in some places, so that is great to be able to enjoy it!

You left out the bit where my dear beloved (we'll get her back one day) daughter scared the willies out of me with the dalek!! I lost years of my life, all those years hiding behind the sofa came flooding back.

Out of both of us!! Hubs didn't understand when I told him that Dalek fear is deeply ingrained into every British child of the sixties and seventies.
