i know that i need the gold, but what i love can't be bought or sold

For me the place I think about when I think of London isn't Westminster with Big Ben and the London Eye or Buckingham Palace with the Guards. It's always been Trafalgar Square, and the lions, the fountains and Nelson's Column. When I get to Trafalgar Square I get that feeling of really being in London. Obviously I feel like I'm in London elsewhere as well, but this is the place for me. And it's so beautiful. I might be going a bit overboard with my new-found love of London.. Like I said, I'm going back soon, mainly because I need to go to the archives, but also because I want to go do fun things as well (haha!). After seeing all the ads for The Ruling Class I'd love to go and see that, but going everywhere I'd want to go is a tad too pricey for my non-existent budget. And what I'd love to go see even more than that is Les Mis. Don't think any of my friends are that into theatre, so if anyone wants to go with me in the next few weeks, drop me a line! (I'm serious. Very serious. We can be theatre pals, right?)

(Photos of me are either by Johanna or Jenna!)

Meg Kernaghan said...

I have such travel envy!
I can't say I know London well enough, to me London was the day on the trip as a 7 year old where both my sibling were ill haha. But I know what you mean about places and cities, Melbourne to me isn't Flinder's Street Station or Federation Square or even the lanes, it's places in the suburbs that I love and little buildings in the city that no one cares about, and especially the top of the city at Parliament on Spring Street and the Princess Theatre. That's the place that feels the most Melbourne to me.
