I’m in London on business this week and it’s been hard to dedicate any time to doing outfit posts. Since most of you are not aware that I actually created my first blog during my tour of London in 2010, I thought it would be nice to take a look back today at some of the great experiences I had while I lived here for 2 months. I love this city, and it’s crazy that I’m able to say that now because when first visited, that was not the case. The opportunity I received was an amazing one. The company I used to work for had a need for someone to come over to help with a major client and I was chosen for the job. Cool right? Well not for me. I happily accepted, then immediately regretted it. I had never been overseas before. I had no idea what to expect, I would be alone, and I didn’t know anyone besides my co-workers. I was lucky to wind up having another friend and co-worker come over at a later time to help out.
If I’m an adventurous person now, it’s because traveling to London was what made me finally put on my big girl underwear. LOL! I had to figure out everything on my own…how to get around on the Tube (the train system here in the UK), how to properly read a map, how to cross the street (believe it or not, it’s not as easy as it sounds), how to use British terminology like “Pop into a store”, “Top up my card”, or get a coffee “To Take Away”…so many things. When you’re afraid of a situation, it’s very easy to back down and decide not to go further into it…but you REALLY miss out on some great experiences when you do! I will never forget the great times that I had when I lived here and I will always come back to London and feel like I’ve come back home.
Here are some of my favorite shots:
I loved going back through these pictures! What you see here, is the result of me making the decision to LIVE in the moment and enjoy the situation I was blessed enough to be placed in. I hope all of you can take a queue from this. Go…there’s nothing stopping you!
I’ll try to do this again for Friday’s post if I have time. I really hope you guys enjoyed looking at these pictures because this was truly one of the best times of my life! If any of you are thinking about taking a visit to London, check out this site HERE for tips on what to do!
So, will any of you be traveling to London any time soon?
Until next time!
