You don't need planning permission to build castles in the sky

Back in early June, Wesley and I went to Windsor for a day trip. Last time we took the bus to Windsor, but this time we took the train instead, since the train ticket is substantially cheaper than the bus ticket, and in fact I prefer train journeys. Once we arrived in Windsor, we had lunch at Thai Square restaurant. From the outside, the restaurant may look small, but once you step inside, it's actually much larger than you think. The decor and the service was lovely, but the food was disappointing and expensive considering the small portion size and the taste didn't match the price.

Our purpose was shopping, but then we made a last minute decision of going to Windsor Castle. It was probably not the best idea to visit an attraction at the last admission time since you want as much time as possible to explore, but we somehow managed to squeeze the tour in 1 hour (note a typically tour is 2-3 hours). We were given an audio handset and it was not only helpful in guiding us around the castle, it was also informative about the history of the castle. As expected of the Queen's residence, Windsor Castle was impressive to visit. No photography was allowed inside but here's some photos of what it's like outside.

Thai food
Goong Ob Mor Din (jumbo prawns cooked with glass noodles) and Kor Moo Yang (chargilled pork). The starter spring roll portion (not pictured) was small and there was hardly any jumbo prawns in the main dish.

St George's Chapel. We missed this because I thought we couldn't enter the service and I didn't listen to my boyfriend, who was right in insisting anyone was welcome to join. Looking at the virtual tour online, it looks impressive too!

Note the last two photos of this post was taken on a previous visit to Windsor. The view was pretty and we relaxed here again, so I'm sharing it here.
