    So there's been a lot of recipes and restaurant reviews here recently (which I know you all love), but now it's time for something completely different...

    A couple of weeks ago, Megabus (you know the people who offer the discount coach journeys) got in touch with a rather cryptic invitation, asking me to spend the evening with them. The details were kept super secret and all I was asked was to bring myself and my mystery solving skills on the night.

    So, feeling intrigued and slightly sceptical, I donned my pink 'detective' coat and headed over to the Radisson Blue Hotel in Marylebone to learn more...

    On arrival, I was greeted with spring rolls and a glass of wine (so we were off to a great start) and briefed on our task for the evening. In true, Sherlock Holmes style, we were being whisked across London, aboard a crime-fighting Mega Mystery Bus no less, to foil a trap laid by the evil Moriarty...MegaBus Mystery Tour Bus
    Starting at Westminister and making our way across Trafalgar Square and Covent Garden, we had to work in teams to gather clues...

    I'll be honest - to begin with, I didn't have a bloody clue what was going on...

    But I was in great company as my 'Totally Sherlocked' team rose to the challenge, even hunting down Sherlock Holmes himself to mine him for information..

    And I got to share a glass of wine with Mr.Megabus himself at the end!

    I don't think I've ever spent an evening quite like it in London, so thanks again for a great night Megabus - it's certainly not one I'll forget in a hurry!
