I posted a while back about the amazing weekend trips I took abroad in Barcelona, Paris, Edinburgh, and Bath. However, I couldn't get myself to write about my time in London because I missed it so much I honestly might get emotional ... I know. I wish all my pictures and videos could accurately describe my time in London but it doesn't come close. It was honestly the most amazing experience for me. Being somewhat alone in a foreign city for two months. It was my first time out of the US (not counting my trip to Atlantis in HS). It was so scary (especially that 7 hour flight over the ocean) but I, without getting too cheesy here, grew so much as a person and after only two months I now know myself better and have become so much more independent.
I met the greatest people in London and was so fortunate to have experience this trip with 25 other amazing people. We are all so different and probably would never have become friends if it was not for this trip, but I am so glad we did. I know these people better than I do most of my friends that I have known since elementary school.
Enough sentimental time.
My favorite memories actually are the days I had to myself. Trying to make my way around the busy city without a working phone was definitely interesting. But, I made it and stumbled upon some amazing things (Tour de France, and a tattoo museum- cool!)
I went by myself and this was by far my favorite day in London.
It was so stunning, they had sculptures and tapestries from countries around the world, they had a history of fashion exhibit, and the Glamour of Italian fashion. A huge room filled with jewelry, a photography exhibit, Wedding dresses, stain glass, graphic design, and theatre costumes and sets. It was honestly the coolest place I had ever been.
My last free day I went and spent 20 pounds on the Henri Matisse cutout exhibit, it was amazing!
