Fishbourne

 Hello dear readers! How are you?
Sorry for such a long gap between entries. I have returned home to England for the summer and I have been busy enjoying myself!
I still have lots of Tokyo posts to catch up on, but in today’s entry I’ll show you photos from a day in Fishbourne, near Chichester.
As I have mentioned before, I am friends with a certain Jack who has marvellous Adventures in Museum Land! Last wekend he wanted to visit Fishbourne Roman Palace. I had been there before on a school trip, but I thought it would be nice to refresh my memory and so I tagged along.
Here is my outfit:
Blouse: Vintage
Skirt: Handmade
Plimsolls, socks: Offbrand

Since we were going into the country I thought it would be wise to wear plimsolls, and I put together a 50s inspired coordinate to match them. I looped up my hair to make a poofy ponytail and tied it with a pale green ribbon.
It’s simple to do and cute and practical for summer! I will make a tutorial soon.
I won’t tell you too much about the museum as you’ll be much better off reading my friend’s excellent article! However I’ll share a couple of photos of the most famous and well preserved mosaic there:
Cupid riding a dolphin
A hippocampus

The mosaic also included an exciting sea-panther but my photo didn’t come out well 😦
 Although it’s not my favourite period in history I always feel a sort of jolly familiarity when I visit Roman sites. Latin was probably my best subject at school and I kept on with it right until I left sixth form. Unfortunately I don’t remember all that much of it now!
Outside, a reenactment with ‘Roman’ soldiers was being staged. It went on a bit but there was a thrilling part where they all rushed at the audience and several children ran away screaming! A the end there was a demonstration of the onager and that was pretty good too.
After we had exhausted the museum we had a picnic and then went for a stroll. We met two very friendly horses!
Lovely horsey! I wanted to take them home with me. 
Since I’m in England for a while, I am going to try to write more about my own country. There are a lot of wonderful things here and I want to share them with you! I hope you enjoyed todays post.
Thank you for reading and see you next time,
Sapphira

  4. You seem so happy here. Living about really makes us value our country even more doesn't it? I totally felt that when I moved to asia as well.The scenery is beautiful and that horse… i've never been that close to one myself and i'm super jealous. It's also the cutest shot ever!
