The last couple of Birthdays have been ok, but sadly my last milestone Birthday of 30 was absolutely ruined. But after some reflecting I decided I was going to do something epic. I didn’t care if I was going to do it alone (but luckily so friends agreed to come) I was going to make my 33rd Birthday one for the books. I was going to climb up the O2 in London
I had been wanting to do this for a year or so and then when I looked was surprised how cheap it actually was (I was expecting 100£ not about 35£) but a little history of what the O2 is…
Thelarge dome shaped building built to house an exhibition celebrating the turn of the third millennium; as the dome shaped structure still stands over the arena, The Dome remains a name in common usage for the venue. The arena, as well as the total O2 complex, is named after its primary sponsor, the telecommunications company O2.
The O2 Arena has the second highest seating capacity of any indoor venue in the United Kingdom, behind the Manchester Arena, but took the crown of the world’s busiest music arena from New York City’s Madison Square Garden in 2008. -Wikipedia
I said my goodbyes to my workmates as I made my way to embankment to get on the Thames Clippers. I had always wanted to ride them as a form of transportation and I could get one that was close to work and to the O2. Plus it was an excellent way to see the sites of London which I never get tired of 8 years later since moving to the UK.
I made my way on the boat and was happy to see the onboard shop to get a drink and so,e pretzels. GoPro in hand I started to film the sites and sounds. I made my 1:30 departure and made it in time
