Something extra (and a little bit different) for you today.
Before my move to Germany at the start of September, I spent a week or so with some friends in London. As part of that stay, I managed to persuade a couple of them – the lovely Amanda and the infamous Morgana Clarke – to join me on a trip to The Emirates to check out the stadium, the Arsenal Museum and of course, the Arsenal shop.
While I understand that London locals will probably shrug their shoulders and say “big deal”, I’ve decided to share my photos from the visit for the international readers on the blog.
It was the first time I have ever been to Emirates Stadium and although I did not get to see a game, it was a little surreal to actually check out the place where the magic happens.
I am planning to attend my first Arsenal game at Emirates in the early part of 2011 but in the meantime, enjoy these photos and please don’t be hard on me for being a little self-indulgent.
Have your say on the photo gallery from the Emirates by leaving a comment.
