Christmas decorations at Olympia, London

Hi from London everyone,

After what could be possibly the best show in the world last week in Geneva, we are now at my favourite show Olympia, London. Ok, it's a very long week but boy it's full of fun Christmas decorations and even Santa comes here too so it must be a cool show!

The trip started for me at 4.30 Tuesday afternoon; drive to Euro Horse as me and Jenny from Jos Verlooy go together in the same truck... After everything you hear in the news maybe it's better to go with two, and she is a scary German so it's better I have a bodyguard with me... That and I didn't want to drive in the train; that is very challenging and I didn't want to break the truck before I got to London - that wouldn't be a good start!

We arrived in London at 3.30am and seeing as I'm "English" a few people followed me, not knowing myself - but the last 20 km we may have gone a little bit of a sight seeing route! Lucky for me we actually didn't get lost and there was no traffic, or I think my followers may have killed me when reaching London!

Horses all settled, now it's 6am I have set up and now to drive 45 mins to the truck parking. Here we stay in apartments, so it's not so bad they are so far away!

Come back and what does an English man do when he hasn't been in his country for so long... You guessed it: A typical English greasy breakfast! This is making up for not so much sleep; happy Sean!

Christmas decorations got a bit out of hand please see pictures!

Tomorrow less Sean, more horse talk I promise...
