London

IMG_9507 Sunday Sept 23: I call my mom to tell her how I've been sitting at the computer torturing myself with the idea of tagging along on her trip to London. Her husband was traveling for business and she conveniently joins him when he does, as did I this time. Went for it, booked my international trip 14 hours before take-off, and what a badass treat it was. I'm not sure when I'll be able to hit London that hard again. I was oh, so gratefully treated to five-star food for 6 days. It was inevitably quick... I fell in love with London, this city with the best of all worlds. Walking down tiny cobble-stone streets busy with restaurants, captivating vintage stores, street vendors, street style, and millenniums of history really did it for me. I've never been so excited to turn the block or cross the street. When I did I found a fabric store the size of a large closet, stocked with embellishments and notions from floor to ceiling. The next street consolidated the best vintage everything into a couple funky shops. Then Chinatown for hot street food and boba tea. I could have spent way, way more than 6 days there.
