So for those of you who don't know, I decided to say f*ck it and head to Europe for a few months. Seeing as I will be traveling with my friend, Isaac, for the next few months of it, I figured I would introduce him, as well as my first stop in Europe.
This is Isaac. Isaac hails from Alton, Hampshire, though he now resides in Newbury. If you haven't caught on, he's a Brit. My favorite Brit, to be exact! We met, I believe, six years ago? Maybe? He was living in the dorms at Colorado State on the floor beneath my childhood best friend, Lindsay. Now neither of us particularly knows how or why, but during that time, we became friends. Fast forward a few years, and I was telling Isaac how I was going to come to Scotland for spring break. Next thing you know, things spiraled, and we were planning a 6-week trip together (which will then be a few weeks longer for me).
Now before any of you ask, especially my aunts, no, Isaac is in no way a 'romantic' friend. Just a friend that also loves travel, adventures, and photography! We're taking the opportunity to adventure and hopefully meet more friends along the way while we are young and can. Isaac and I will be traveling to England, Norway, Denmark, Germany, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Italy, Greece, and Switzerland together. I will then be going on to Scotland and Spain.
London in an Evening
Unfortunately, I only got to go to London for an evening. It is only a brief stop on my way to the next stop. So, there's really no point in me talking in-depth about everything I did there. Honestly, it was mostly just aimless, beautiful wandering. I will share a few of the highlights for me, though.
First, I met a street photographer named Zsuzsanna. She asked me to model, and it completely made my day. The second highlight would be how obsessed I am with the tiny cars they have here. They're so cute! I also just loved how clean and alive the city was. It wasn't like New York or LA, where you walk around and see garbage and homeless people everywhere. It was well kept. The thing that made me most excited was the fashion and diversity. These are two things we don't get much of in Montana, so it was exciting to see. I wish I would have brought my camera with me that day, but I only brought my phone.
There were pretty much only two things I didn't like about England. The first was that many of the regular tourist attractions, such as Big Ben and Westminster Abbey, were under construction. It completely broke my heart. The other, which is just a completely unrelated personal preference, was that their meat isn't very tasty in England. It doesn't taste fresh at all. Just a warning.
Anyways, without further ado, here are my random phone photos from the day. With the limited time, I thought it wouldn't be worth it to bring my camera, which I am profoundly regretting. But oh well! Enjoy!
I hope you enjoyed my one evening in London and meeting Isaac. Stay tuned to follow me all around Europe! Let me know in the comments where I should go in London next time! I need all the insider tips!
