“I live in my own little world. But its ok, they know me here.”
― Lauren Myracle
London has become my little world, my other home, my shelter…
Wow! That was a very intense weekend! I can’t believe how quickly it’s gone 😮 !!! I was so looking forward to telling everything (or almost :p!) but I’ve got so many things to tell about this weekend that this post is only the first of a long list! As I had told you last week, I spent the past three days in London… I wanted to go back there at least once before going back to France at the end of this week :s!
This weekend was truly amazing! I’ve done lots of things within such a short time… I couldn’t even imagine that was possible :p! I also met some friends there I eventually had to say goodbye to… and to be honest, that was really really hard! It was very emotional (but I’ll tell you a bit more about that part in another article ;)!!!).
Let’s focus on everything I did when I was there…
First I chose an hotel in the district of Soho, which means I was really not far from all the theatres and thus the “musical world” ^^ (that’s just SO part of London that I couldn’t be far from it)! That was so great! This place honestly never sleeps at night! This is amazing!
The first thing I did when I arrived on the Friday evening was to go for a walk to Piccadilly… Just to realise that I was well and truly home again :)! You know!? When you come back in the city you love and you view as your own home, you simply need to feel that you definitely belong there… all over again!
On the Saturday morning, I went to Covent Garden (definitely one of my favourite places in London)! I did a bit of shopping for my dad (as it was Father’s day yesterday ^^) and took some lovely pics…(at least, I hope you’ll like them :p). I went to my favourite shop, The Tea Palace (haha #tealover) and also to the adorable & colourful Pylone shop! While discovering the pics below, you’ll notice that I couldn’t prevent myself from going back to the place I met this person, who is such an incredible friend to me now #StarbuckS :)! I also spent about an hour listening to the gorgeous voice of Evie Anderson! This girl is truly amazing… she definitely should have her place at the theatre, opera or whatsoever! I liked her performance so much that I even bought her CD and I took a video of her singing the brilliant song of Les Mis, I dreamt a dream… What else?! :p
And finally, on the Sunday, I met two Uni friends who did their placement in London and who were my guides through central London… That was such a lovely day… except from the rain
Here it is, my lovely ones… the first post about my weekend in London! I hope you’ll like it and I wish you a very nice Monday afternoon :)!!!
“Home wasn’t a set house, or a single town on a map. It was wherever the people who loved you were, whenever you were together. Not a place, but a moment, and then another, building on each other like bricks to create a solid shelter that you take with you for your entire life, wherever you may go.”
― Sarah Dessen, What Happened to Goodbye
It is indeed thanks to all the amazing people I met in London that allows me now to say that this place is home too…
(Just a glimpse of one of the next coming articles 😉 xxx)
Keep holding on to what you love, my angels & enjoy the ride of life 😉
