London has always had a special place in my heart. I first visited London years (decades) ago in seventh grade during my stay in a small southern town called Christchurch, while attending a three-week intensive English course. I remember being in awe during my first visit. Years later I would return to England to study at Lancaster University and I began my career in London itself in the Covent Garden area. London was then my "home base" for three and a half years before I moved to the New York City metropolitan area.
Needless to say, a lot of my friends from uni still live there or close by. It's been a while since I last had visited London, so it did not taking a lot of convincing when I recently had the chance to go there again for pleasure for a long weekend, and airfares were cheap.
I had no particular plans or agenda, beside visiting with friends, so I took advantage of the gorgeous sunny weather and set off to explore some old stomping grounds of mine. I spent the last couple of months locked in the office, so I was "thirsting" to grab my camera and walk around to clear my head. I ended up walking about eight miles in total one day and took some photos along the way. I wish I could have met more friends during my stay
