At the end of September and beginning of October 2014, I spent two weeks in London. The trip was significant to me for a lot of reasons: It was my first time outside of North America, I was there to celebrate my birthday and a huge change of attitude in my life, and it was the longest time I'd ever spent traveling alone. I got to meet a lot of people who I'd only chatted with online before, and sitting with them, talking face-to-face over good food and music, was always a nice break from the solo wandering I spent most of the trip doing.
I took a lot of photos while I was there. I mean, a lot a lot a lot. I still haven't gone through them all. Obviously, there were the iPhone snapshots, and the "artsy" Fuji Instax prints. But I also lugged my Canon DSLR with me around town and tried to take photos everywhere I went, which was mostly museums because, for me, a museum is one of those places that I consider to simultaneously be calming and exciting.
Below are some snapshots from the trip, specifically from those museums. I have many more photos to sort through and share, so maybe this is a "part one" of sorts, but in the meantime, enjoy these selects.
If you ever get the chance to head far away from home for awhile, by yourself, I 100% recommend you do it. Having the chance to wander and do as I please in a city I was a complete stranger to was incredible. I fell in love with London and I can't wait to return, and I also look forward to other chances to hop around the globe with just my thoughts to keep me company. Safe travels, dudes!
