My Final London Weekend

It doesn’t feel at all like I have been in London for almost three and a half months. My time here has been a whirlwind that has gone all too quickly. I’ve come to love so many little things about London and the people in it. One of those things is the tube, as I…

Next Stop… London.

After a summer full of traveling and exploring, my friends and family must all think I’m crazy to once again be embarking on yet another foreign journey.
