A day in Coventry.

Hi Folks.

Yesterday we had a day in Coventry. There was a good reason why we made the bus journey into Coventry. We had been invited to BBC Coventry and Warwickshire for an interview. We were glad we set of early. We caught the x18, which is supposed to take you on the quick route via Leamington-Spa. Both Leamington-Spa and Coventry are festooned with road works, and when the bus arrived in Leamington-Spa the driver did not know which way to go around the diversions, so he had to ask another bus driver coming in the opposite direction. Our driver then still got it all wrong, so we ended up going around the diversions twice. We did eventually make it to Coventry and thankfully were not late arriving at the radio station.

We were made very welcome by everyone at the station whilst we wanted to go on the Vic Minett Show.

It was interesting to see behind the scenes and to be part of a show. Vic is so lovely and a great laugh.SAM_3862

After we had finished with the radio, we headed off into the city for lunch at a Chinese buffet before walking around Coventry.

Coventry has such a wealth of history and some very impressive buildings.

The old Cathedral is a magnificent building, which is undergoing more work.

Recently Coventry felt a huge amount of sadness when a double decker bus crashed into Sainsbury’s killing two people. The out pouring of grief is still evident.

We very much enjoyed our day in Coventry.
