A Month of London

It was sometimes easier to stay in the flat to read or knit, but I was running out of time to see London. I wasn’t spending much time in the city I was living after jet setting around Europe, Asia, and the U.S. It’s always easier to get wrapped up in things where you live to make excuses why. In my case, it was I “still have time.”

Rush hour commute in London

I found myself getting lost and wandering a lot. It’s hard to soak up a place and time. Cities and people are always changing. My interests and travel has evolved because of this experience. I found myself the last few days trying to figure out how to get a sense of closure for a place. I walked slower and stopped letting the crowded streets bother me. I paid attention to the details and got lost in my thoughts and reflections.


I marked my calendar with the last few things that were on my must-see list of London. I joined London Walks that were guided tours in certain parts of the city and went to a few more museums on Tuesdays.

Time to Move

Night in Seattle

I moved back to Seattle. I’m in the process of getting my things out of storage and adjusting my house the way I like it. Having tenants allowed me to travel Europe guilt-free while Andy’s income was enough to pay the difference of the mortgage while his company was handling our rent in London.

Hiking in Wales

Climbing to the top of Wales. Moving back to the States this week will feel like an uphill battle. However, it is important to focus on where I need to go. I may not know the trail by heart, but I am excited to see what details I focus on along the way.

Plitvice Lakes National Park

This weekend, I am actually staying in London. Only three more weeks until we move back to the States. Figured I would finally check out Canary Wharf and Greenwich Park. Who knows what tomorrow will bring. Anyone have any suggestions on things to see that aren’t overly crowded on the weekends? Until now, I’m catching up on my photos from this summer’s adventures.

Scuba in Croatia

New experiences in Croatia. Thanks John for the discovery dives!

What’s next for October?

I’m settling back into my life in Seattle. I have a few tentative trips planned in the upcoming months to be outside as much as possible.
