Sure I promised to share photos as soon as I got back.
Sure it’s been eight months.
And for certain, I’m ready to go again.
Because as I told you here, more travel is in my immediate future.
In the meantime, I’m reading travel blogs (here’s a really good one written by a Latina who fell in love with a Ghanaian man while studying abroad), following travel instagram accounts, daydreaming, and plotting my next adventures. My time is coming. Like really soon!
Oh, check out my Travel Inspiration board on Pinterest:
And now a few pics of what I actually experienced. I hope you enjoy! There are so many; I’m trying to pick and choose – and I don’t remember which day(s) any of this happened on. LB is intentionally missing from pics I’m posting. Thank you!
St. Pauls Cathedral
The Guildhall Art Gallery
Inside the British Library
Street Art in Shoreditch
Sheperd’s Bush Market – I loved this area by the way. Very convenient to shopping at Westfield Mall and two Tube stations.
I did quite a bit more. LB and I had date night at The Gold Coast Bar & Restaurant where I had my first Ghanaian dish. It’s in the South Norwood neighborhood of South London. Went shopping and had lunch at Spitalfields Market), took quick jaunts to the Soho, Oxford Street and Fleet Street areas, and basically all around London on a personal tour. I like the city, and while transportation is nowhere near as convenient as the New York City transit system, which runs all night, I managed to get around with ease. Naturally, there are also more late night food options in the city that never sleeps (NYC), but I had plenty to eat in London!
And more Pinterest!
PART TWO (a few pics from Paris) will follow. Stay tuned!
I’m excited about my current travel plans, which I’ll share more about as they manifest – or after I come back from the trips!!
It all starts with a vision, and then the ball gets rolling. Right?
Let me know if you’ve enjoyed the photos and or have travel stories and suggestions to share. (And if the slideshows play right.)
If you’ve been to London, Venice, Barcelona, Amsterdam, Madrid and or Zurich, tell me all you liked about the experience(s). Also, I’m still open to a way to get paid for traveling! Blogging opportunities? From Cabo Verde perhaps?
