One thing I mentioned in my ‘Reflecting on my 2011‘ post was time and how certain sacrifices had to be made. Some of my closest childhood friends have become strangers over the past year and in that time, strangers have become close friends. However there’s one set of friends that will always be there, even if we only see each other once or twice a year – it’ll always be fun: filled with jokes and laughter. Sounds cheesier than a disney film, but it’s true. What we usually do when we catch up is play FIFA/PES/COD for hours on end and consume unacceptable amounts of junk food. Now that we’re all somewhat grown, I suggested we should do something different; so we ended up at Stonehenge.

Although our paths and interests are somewhat different, there’s always something to talk about and reminisce on. That’s not the case with some of my other friends, our goals/dreams are so different that there isn’t much to say. The awkward silences in between short conversations full of umm’s and ahh’s. Uncomfortable. It’s sad to see a friendship turn this way but there isn’t really anything that we can do when circumstances/people change, other than to appreciate the good times that we had. Okay enough self reflecting!
Why Stonehenge? Um. No idea, my friend Roy picked it. It’s a common preconception that the Stonehenge is one of the world’s seven wonders but it’s not! however it is a listed UNESCO world heritage site. No one really knows who built it, archaeologists think it was some form of ancient burial site, but who really knows?!
‘Stonehenge was produced by a culture that left no written records. Many aspects of Stonehenge remain subject to debate’
Many believe it was built for supernatural purposes. I felt nothing there with my Krypton-inherited blood. Check out my images below, these are probably my best landscape shots since Rome. I’ve added a little soundtrack for your picture viewing, Temper Trap seemed apt with the sunset and all.
Stonehenge over. Time for our first meal of the day at 4pm.
At this point, the camera had to be put away as I savagely destroyed that piece of chicken. BEAST MODE. The end.
