Day 1: London Calling

And now for my first actual post, though it’ll be more pictures than words b/c I’m way too tired. Arriving back in London, for the first time since I moved back to Toronto in June after 2.5 years of British living, was quite weird. It felt so surreal, like I was in a dream and had just wished to go back to London, so here I was.

The early darkness and Christmas lights everywhere probably didn’t help. But it was gorgeous.

Two things accomplished today:

(1) Consuming a Hummingbird Bakery black-bottom cheesecake cupcake. De-lish.

(2) Had an amazing dinner at Jamie Oliver’s Italian restaurant in Covent Garden with my two former flatmates.

Albert Memorial at Night

I love the Dickensian feeling to this photo (above). Thought I think Dickens died before this memorial was created…we’ll just ignore that fact for now.
