Cheers from London!
You’re probably a little confused. It’s okay! Totally understandable. All your questions will be answered right now:
- Are you really in London?
Yes, I am!
- That’s cool I guess. But why are you adding stuff to this blog? I mean, isn’t this for your travels around South America? Even the name of your blog is in Spanish…
This blog started out as a way for me to share my experiences in South America, but as I intend to do a whole lotta travelling I plan to write about all my travel adventures here as it seems a little silly to create a new blog for every continent. The title of my blog will always be a happy reminder of why I started to write in the first place. I think it’s extremely important to be reminded of why and how you began doing something you love.
- Okay, I get it. But wait, what are you doing in London anyway?
I thought you’d never ask! I’m a few days shy of my 1 year new-job-anniversary, and as I haven’t had a chance to take a vacation since graduating college (kids: stay in school, the perks of being a student are great, especially all that vacay time) I figured it’d be a good time to check out some cool new places.
- These question things are a little silly…can you just blog like you normally do?
Why yes, yes I can!
My brother and I are spending the next three weeks traveling around the United Kingdom (that’s England, Wales, Scotland, and Ireland)! Picking these destinations in particular was a combination of listening to my brain and listening to my gut.
My family has always talked about seeing Europe, so I knew this would be a great opportunity to get my foot in the door. That helped narrow down the list of potential countries to visit, but there were still too many to choose from. Then I thought about what I wanted from this trip. Did I just want a few more notches in my travel belt? Or did I want to get to know a handful of places well? If you kept up with my South American adventures you probably already know the answer: more time in fewer cities! Ideally of course I’d want both, but while three weeks may sound like a long time, it’s not. After I figured that out, the rest was a leap of faith. My brother and I have always had a soft spot for British literature, humour (see what I did there?), and a hot plate of fish & chips, so it seemed natural to come explore this side of the continent.
And here we are!
I was planning on writing a bit more, I wanted to tell you guys about our first couple of days here, but as it’s already passed midnight and we’re waking up early to do some tourist-y things, I’ll leave it for tomorrow. Sorry for the tease!
Cheerio for now! :D
NB: I don’t have a laptop with me so will be unable to upload pictures from my DSLR until after I’m home. This means that the posts will be text-heavy, but I promise to keep them short and sweet :)
