Thorpe Park. I was equal parts excited and terrified when I realised that we were going to spend our anniversary at a theme park. Aside from Universal Studios, I cannot remember the last time I went to a theme park. Suffice to say, I am not exactly accustomed to being swooshed around, shot up in the air and accelerated at great speed, and every ride had me screaming at the top of my lungs. My initial coping mechanism was to shut my eyes so that I couldn't see what I was about to experience on the first ride - The Saw:
Not quite the happy expressions we were making on our wedding day, but expressions that express exhilaration, excitement, trust, fear and adrenaline, all in one go. When I told a good friend that we were spending our anniversary in Thorpe Park, she commented, '...Maybe an illustration of marriage!' I couldn't have put it better myself.
