London

I just got back from London. My trip was amazing. Went to an exhibition and a workshop at the Globe Theatre, which completely amazed me. I fell in love with Shakespeare all over again.
Other than doing loads of shopping, seeing Lion King (AMAZING musical), visiting museums, and sightseeing, I spent some lovely quality time  (room-sharing and piñacolada-drinking) with my classmates. I realized just how much I’m going to miss those girls, when we graduate this summer. I’ve been blessed with some of the best friends one could ever wish for, and I know for sure, that graduation day won’t be the last time we see each other. Friends forever, that’s what they are.
So, back to London. I have only been there twice now, but the city has really grown on me. I’m thinking of going back (and bringing my mom) in a couple of weeks, for the winter vacation.
It really shocked me though, how the whole city collapsed as soon as a little snow started falling. Made me laugh. I almost missed the train to Gatwick Airport (me and my 19 classmates all had to hail taxis) on the way home, because the tubes stopped running. Also, my flight was rescheduled due to snow on the wings (and an ill passenger onboard, which caused the crew to surpass their maximum working hours).
Now, where I come from, we’re used to snow in the winter time. 10 − 15 cm!

London, baby!

Once again, I’m off to visit London. I’m super excited, and it’s tinkling in my fingertips. I love traveling, and since my last trip to the city, I’ve been longing for another visit. This time I’m going with some of my best friends from my english class.

Run like you took something

And it is friday. And I’m stuck at home. And I’m exhausted. How are you?
I was really looking forward to be spending a night on the town with my girlies, but I have absolutely no money to spend. I have nothing to complaint about, it’s not as if I’m poor or anything. I am very privileged, that I got to go to London and spend all my money there. Here’s the reality check, and the consequences of it. Also, I’m crazy privileged to be going to London again this January. But I’ll have to pay it by myself this time. Also, christmas is coming up, so I’ll need some money for gift-shopping So, no wild times for me…. Until next friday, though… yeah, you’ve got to allow yourself some fun time. Right? But I’ve got to watch my money. Seriously.

Guess who’s back

It’s me! Yes, I’m back on the blog after a couple of so, so, so amazing days in London. Love the city, but wow, it’s crowded. I’ve been to NY several times, but in London it seems as though people are even more crowded. Crazy. My hotel was in Blackheath Village, which is a lovely little place to stay – I recommend it if you’re going to London, anyone. It was a nice contrast to stay outside the city (but the village was full of life, really vibrating) and then just hop on the train into London-town (20 minutes). Also, the train ride from Blackheath Village to London central includes a trip across the famous London Bridge – beautiful sight at night time. I miss it already, and I’m counting the days until january, when I’ll return with my classmates for a study trip. Aren’t I just lucky? 😉

London

This november I’m going to London for a couple of days. Since my family live in Boston, almost every vacation of mine has gone to the US. But not this time!

London baby. Haven’t been there before, so I’m really excited. Have you ever been?
