I walked a lot.
I sweated more (it was in the mid 30's celcius & humid every day!).
I met amazing people.
I took a boat along the Thames.
I went to Liberty of London!!!!!
I saw a show (One Man, Two Guv'nors).
I ate sporadic meals (1 of them at a Jamie Oliver Restaurant).
....and I took lots of photos. I'm going to start you off with this little primer of a mosaic. These are the best of my Instagram shots, so if you follow Poppyprint on IG, you've likely seen these already.
Pounds in my lovely purse made by Berene, Victoria tube station, snacks on the Thames' South Bank, a terrace fountain at Lynne's house, the quaint town of Ashbourne (wasn't it nice of them to hang the bunting for me?), flower seller, letter box + phone box + Jack Russell in window = quintessential UK pic, Liberty tana lawns at Shaukat, Gloucester Road tube station, Kensington still life, pub sign, Gloucester Road station, Gloucester Road station, Chihuly glass sculpture in the lobby rotunda of the V&A Museum, Regent Street from Picadilly Circus, Liberty flagship (sigh).
I have sorted my 'good pictures' off the DSLR, but have yet to upload to Flickr. Jet lag, unpacking and reuniting with my family have taken up a lot of my energy. Plus, to be honest, it's been difficult coming to terms with the fact that I'm home and it's all over. I'm a little sad; definitely experiencing travel withdrawal.
Back soon with more tourist pics, some of my amazing purchases and new friends!
