My entire blog was deleted in June 2014, and I’ve been reuploading old posts. This is a republished post from May 2014.
I was never really particularly drawn to London as a place, and I can’t figure out why. Here are some snaps of the final leg of our 2012 trip. I guess this kind of fell by the wayside when I was feeling meh about life in general, but looking at the photographs, I think I wouldn’t mind going back and popping in for a visit.
When I save enough money, of course. London is pretty expensive, and I don’t usually notice that when I travel (bad at math and all of that).
It rained a lot, obviously. The River Thames! I think. Aka, the moment you fell in love with Armie Hammer:
Palace of Westminster, aka the Houses of Parliament, aka that awesome building Harry and his friends were flying beside, aka the building that V blew up, aka home of the Elizabeth Tower, which is what people usually actually point to and refer to as Big Ben.
Westminster Abbey. OK, this place was pretty congested… and I think I saw Elijah Wood in the crowd! But it was so crowded and full of people, and “Elijah” was walking so fast that I didn’t get to double check. I don’t know if he was in London at the time, either, so. Yes. A maybe Hobbit encounter.
Tate Modern! <3 One of the best things about London is that a lot of museums = free admission.
There were so many students… and all of my pictures has a single person looking at me, all suspicious of the weird Asian lady who takes pictures of strangers.
This place is just called “More London.” Apparently, it’s a development. It’s quite near The Scoop, which is an outdoor amphitheater, also by More London (I think?), though there were no shows going on when we went.
