Wanderlust: London, England

In the summer of 2010, I lived in London for a month or so, on the East end at Queen Mary University of London. The trip, albeit university sponsored, was filled with adventures around town outside the classroom. We spent our days riding the Tube and finding new places to see.

I think the thing I loved about London the most was the culture. Being a mix of different cultures all coming together to “mind the queue”, London is both proper and wild. I was able to travel back in the winter of 2012 to show my mother where I had been, and I’m happy to report that she loved it just as much as I do.
