Friday was Lightnight in Liverpool. We usually go to this event, we’ve been in 2012 and 2013. Last year wasn’t as interesting as 2012, so I had lower expectations. I was wrong! This year was lovely!
Hubby has a green belt at Shotokan and I trained almost an year in Qwan Ki Do. It was quite emotional for us to see a karate training session, it brought back a lot of memories. I would love to be able to train again, but I’m smitten with Qwan Ki Do and there are only 3 branches in London. The British team of Qwan Ki Do is trained by a Romanian woman, she was the one who brought it in the UK.
After the Shotokan demonstration, it was the Freefall Circus. After one of the guys said he will demonstrate how everything works and that the audience can have a go… I thought it will be so boring and that nobody will try.
And this is hubby. He wanted to try the rope. I must admit I would have loved to try climbing on them, but in less than 1 month I have another fair and I can’t have a wrist or ankle twisted. I’m prone to accidents, so I had to stay on the side.
As part of the WW2 commemorations, it was an ice sculpture with the very known message: “Your country needs you”. This year marks the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landing, but also it’s the 100th anniversary of the WW1. I think there should be more events about WW1.
