Holiday in London

On my way to Poland I made a quick stop in London. It was great!!! I stayed with a friend who is now living in London. We decided to take the two days I had there and just explore and see what we could find. I loved London! It is like a city of it's own. I'm not sure how to describe it. At times felt like "yeah, I am back in Europe" and at other times I felt like I was in a major city in the U.S. The old buildings are beautiful!
We decided to get a great view of London and so we went on the London Eye. A few years ago I would have never stepped onto something that would take me so high up. But, all of this traveling has made me braver. So, I faced my slight fear of heights and enjoyed a beautiful view of the entire city and beyond.
One of the biggest highlights for me was when we scored tickets to The Phantom of the Opera! WOW!!! I have always enjoyed watching musicals, but have never been to a live one. It was amazing! I was lost in a fascinated world as I watched one of my favorite stories unfold on stage. A memory I will cherish forever.
The best part of the whole trip was just getting to relax and explore with a friend. We talked for hours as we wandered around the city. Just enjoying the city and each others company. It was a great time of relaxing and accepting all of the adventures a head of me!

Traveling Again!

I'm headed out! Tomorrow I leave San Francisco and head to London. After a couple days in London I will hop a plane over to Krakow. I am returning to work with the Sweet Surrender ministry as a volunteer for another year. I have a lot of new adventures in front of me and some big changes! I am really excited to see where God is going to lead me. Let another year of adventure begin!!
