Good morning, luvs! Yesterday I bid farewell to my beloved – but oh so stormy – Amsterdam and flew to London.
My parting was bittersweet knowing I’m leaving behind family and friends who mean a great deal to me. But I’m so excited about this next phase of my life, starting with a few days spent in England with people I love.
I arrived in a London I didn’t expect to see: a sunny and warm one, with light dancing across the Thames and setting Big Ben aglow. It’s my first time in England and it’s truly a dream come true. I confess I am head over heels in love with this place. If I wasn’t so happy to be moving to Australia, I’d move to England in a heartbeat.
My dear English friend Katy from Starry-Eyed Travels is my guide and compatriot in this adventure, and we’re having a marvelous time. I can’t wait to share photos and stories from our rambles. 🙂
My favorite moment of our trip so far is from last night. We were sitting in a coffee shop in Soho, chatting and writing in our journals as we sipped hot drinks, and suddenly I felt a hand on my shoulder. I looked up and who should it be but my BROTHER!! He is in town on business and just happened to be across the street with some colleagues when he spotted me in the cafe. 🙂 It made my day, and London suddenly felt warmer and friendlier.
What is a place you’ve always dreamed of visiting?
