London, since you're calling

Friday, April 10, 2015

from here
I thought I'd be in Bordeaux for another few months, but alas, it is not to be. London is calling, and I resisted for as long as I could, but finally bought a one-way ticket to the big city.

In ten days, I am moving. I'm not quite ready.

Don't get me wrong, I think London is a great place with heaps to see and do and eat. I've already been to London and was disappointed not to have crossed off everything on my wishlist. So, that will definitely be on top of my projects to do during my three months in London. I'm excited to meet up with my old friends and to make new acquaintances, of course.

Excited about going to London:

  • Flat whites
  • Teas and scones
  • Doing the touristy things: Notting hill, Tate Modern, Shoreditch, markets
  • West End Musicals!!!
  • Being forced to minimise my belongings

Not so excited about going to London:

  • Leaving Bordeaux and its lovely people when the good weather's finally back
  • especially my housemate J, running buddy L, culture crew K & C, the Node family, the P family...
  • Bordeaux wine
  • No more French every day 
London, bring it on. Would you make a fair lady out of me?
