Hotel, apartment, house?? I’m a gypsy

We have moved to Milton Keynes last week, where Ryan got a job to work for British Foreign Commonwealth Office (so secretive! the site is in the middle of country roads and farms, highly secured just like espionage :P), just 1 hour outside London. Last week we stayed in a budget hotel called Days Inn, I think the name explained enough. It was off the motorway, far from the central and the customer service was awful but at least it was clean and tidy and for the price we paid we could not expect more.
After spending the weekend in Leeds, we had to find accommodation for this week and found a 2 storey 1 bedroom flat in the central area. It’s fully furnished and has a private garden, free wi-fi included with LCD TV, DVD player and 5.1 surrounds system.The place is nice, simple and comfortable but all the furniture and bits of pieces come from IKEA!! it makes you feel like you’re in the IKEA display store.

We rent the place for a week while we’re looking for few months period. Well who knows where we’re staying next…. yess i’m a gypsy, a woman with no place to live, or maybe i’m a rock star ? 🙂

Milton Keynes itself is a weird place. The city is fairly new. The best way to describe it is like the Sim City game. Everything falls to the right squares. Shopping mall, recreation centre, train station, library, apartments, restaurants, health centre all in one place. It’s not like England at all. It’s nice but not cultural, no history, no madness. It’s clean and tidy, just like the living room of the Stepford wives. I’m not sure if I like it at all. I never like nice and Milton Keynes is nice.
