It has been a long time since I traveled alone (without kids) internationally. Around 7 years. This past week, I was lucky to be able to fly to London for three and a half days to meet my girlfriends. I was worried about not being able to adjust to time change and being miserably tired during my brief stay.
Well, I forgot how things used to be. I arrived on Tuesday at 8:30 in the morning. We spent the whole day out, - did a river tour, saw a play which I successfully watched from beginning to end, finishing it with a stroll by the river. I was so impressed with my performance! When I did not have jet-lagged kids to wake up with at four in the morning, play for several hours before everybody else is up, traveling was so much easier...
London is such a beautiful city. I enjoyed every second there despite some warm tube rides and the crowds - tourists!
Some favorite shots and moments from the trip are below.
Leisurely sketching St Pauls Cathedral from Tate Modern's garden.
Admiring rainbow meringues at one of Jamie Oliver's shops.
I love my girls. I was missing them by the end of first day. Still, a little trip without them was invigorating. Every girl needs a girls trip!
