London Calling

Well, it's been a few days since a hungry man left Iceland and made his way to London. It's also been a while since I've written to the blog mostly because now that I am in London I'm just not as anxious to write about my experiences here as I was with Reykjavik. There's a reason for that. I've been to London before – many times. At one point about ten years ago I lived here for a year so for me coming back to London is like putting on an old sweater. It's familiar yet very comforting ya know? I mean some things have changed since I last came here in 2008. Oxford Street at Tottenham Court Road (my 'hood whenever I come to the city) is a mess due to construction and they tore down the Astoria Theatre to make way for a brand new subway station. It's still crowded and messy and rainy - all the things I remember and love about the city.

I may not be writing too much in regards to London; maybe the occasional post here and there. I don't have a jam-packed itinerary as I did in Iceland so it'll be a me-mostly-wandering-here-and-there sort of holiday, as per usual whenever I come here.

Every time I think to myself"ok that's enough of London, you've got to stop coming here", like a dog to a bone I'm back again. It's ok, it's good to be back – I've missed you London!
