One Year Ago...

I left the city I fell in love with.

Where I made some of my best friends.

With whom I:

Toured the coolest castles.

Ate too many treats, i.e. Magnum Bars, Galaxy Chocolate, Caramel Digestives, Cadbury Products. Saw some great musicals.

Discovered the best markets.

Fell in love with British History.

Served in wonderful wards.

Crammed for exams in McDonalds on field trips.

Spent too many hours trying to sleep on the coach.

Packed our days with sight-seeing, museum-visiting, and exploring.

One year and another adventure later, I realize how blessed I was to spend a summer in London with these girls. I learned a lot about Europe, traveling, and problem-solving. I learned even more about myself.

I miss having 7 roommates and getting maybe 5 hours of sleep every night. I miss always carrying an umbrella with me. I miss the Tube, Tube riders, Trafalgar Square, Sister Schlur's cooking, Embassy Road, traveling an hour to church, and London shopping. I found it doesn't matter where you are in the world, what you are doing, what you are seeing, but who you are with. People make all the difference. Thank you London Summer 2009 Crew. 27 Palace Court will always have a special place in me heart.

London, you are so clean, charming, historical, and lovely. I think you surpass New York in my book. Samuel Johnson said it best, "When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life."

2012 London Summer Olympics. I will be there. Who's in? Anyone? Anyone?
