Chugga Chugga chugga Chugga…

Oh I do love trains! I like how they sort of float across pastures, through towns and wind around corners and sometimes cliffs. I feel like I am in a giant mechanical centipede whipping across the worlds biggest bathtub. (Fortunately, there is no giant centipede killer.) I am slightly disappointed that my seat seems to be the only one that has a divide between two windows, leaving me with my head squished between the seat in front of me and the wall so that I can see out onto the landscape. There is nothing particularly special about the English landscape but I want to see it anyways.

I have many things planned for my almost 4 day trip in London. I am seeing a show at the Globe theatre on the 28th, I am going to peruse the V&A Museum, which I have been waiting to do since I took an art course at NSCAD a couple of years ago, see the major sights like the London eye, London Tower Big Ben and many more, an of course shop. I will keep you all updated on the cool things I see and do as I go. My first stop out of the train is the tube so that I can drop my little backpack at The Clink hostel where I am staying. It’s in an old courthouse so I am looking forward to seeing how neat it really is.

Thank you all for reading, I love you all! XO

  1. Oooooooh, so exciting!!! I so love your blogs!!! (Ok, I'm your mother, so I'm a little biased, but I find them sooooo interesting.) I'm picturing myself with you on the train and can't wait to hear your impressions of London town--I saw on the news that Vivienne Westwood is currently having an exhibit of her hundreds of pairs of shoes somewhere in London--perhaps it rivals your collection???? :) Love you. xoxoxoxo mumsy
