London (again)

I wanted to get at least a few photos up from my trip to London and France this past August before I dive into epic EPIK preparation. I’ve had to cut down from the hundreds of photos that I came back with, but here is a smattering from the city that’s really starting to feel like a home away from home:

I can’t believe the Criterion closed just days after I stopped by for a drink. So sad…

Now, when can I go back? 😉

Springtime in London

Looking back at my trip to London almost a year ago now (May 2014), with some belated photos…

I miss that city so much. Can’t wait to go back!
