Guildford through my iPhone

I started off my week with a trip to Guildford with Eppie and Emma. I'd only ever been to Guildford once before and that was for a night out, so it was quite nice to see the town opposed to a Lloyds and some random club. I picked up Eppie on my way, then headed into town to meet Emma. Emma is lucky enough to be heading to Canada for six months this week, so this was our last chance to see her before she jetted off to the Great White North.

We met Emma and immediately headed to grab some food. Pasties were bought and demolished over conversations about Eppie's travels to Prague, Emma's lack of packing for her trip next week and our upcoming travels next summer. We then had a wander around Guildford high street, which reminded me a lot of Winchester from my visit to the Christmas market last week. We oo-ed and ahh-ed over all of the lovely shops they have there. We lusted over the ludicrously priced products in Space NK and stroked the super soft jumpers in Crew and White Stuff, vowing that one day we'd buy these things when we weren't poor graduates.

Our friend Anna, who is another friend of ours from uni, then joined us and we headed to Costa. Several Christmassy drinks we purchased and we talked events, jobs, Christmas and expressed our jealously of Emma's travels. A good hour or so passed and it was time for Anna to head back to London. We walked her back to the station, said our goodbyes and then headed back to the car.

We decided that we'd head into Camberley to eat at Wildwood, which Eppie recommended. Safe to say we weren't disappointed. It must have taken us a good fifteen minutes to decide on whether to go starter, main course and no dessert or no starter, main course and dessert. We decided on all three, just we shared starters and desserts.  I shared an amazing baked brie with hazelnuts with Eppie, before moving onto a goats cheese and chorizo pizza. Finished off with a lemon meringue sundae with Emma. The fact that this meal was accompanied by still lemonade won me over.  The staff were lovely enough to take Emma's mussels off the bill as half of them were closed and therefore inedible, so it only cost us about £16 each, definitely good value. I'd 100% recommend it if you're near one of their restaurants.








We spent the entire meal getting extremely excited over our travel plans next summer. Expressing the excitement of a six year older over possibilities of visiting Disneyland, California and having Canadian adventures. For me, this excitement was multiplied by getting to meet Eppie's new puppy, Benny as we headed back to hers for the night. The next morning we said our goodbye's to Emma, which were made that bit easier by being able to say "See you in LA!".
