Right, so sometimes you have a holiday where you did and saw multiple things and you cannot wait to gush about it to all of your friends. Other times, you have a holiday where you did a whole lot of nothing and just enjoyed it in the moment. You recall it fondly and wish you were still there. This is the latter, so I won’t ruin the beauty of these places with my (semi) inane thoughts and musings.
The time limit is actually arbitrary–you could spend 9-12 hours doing what I did. But most likely you could do it in 4, because I like slow living. Which goes seamlessly into the thought process behind this post. Usually, I don’t make trips into London because it can be kinda stressful. Don’t get me wrong, I love the place. But it’s killer on your physical and emotional health when you’re scurrying past other tourists while crossing hundreds of roads filled with bikers, pedestrians, cars, buses and sometimes trains. The commute alone takes 40 minutes minimum for me. However, I’m returning to the US very soon and I wanted to make a last trip during the waning summer. Alone. And very chilled out.
