You’ve heard the song: California dreaming, on such a winter’s day… but what about when you ARE in California, on a dreary Thursday morning mostly spent in the car, crawling through traffic on the freeway; what do you dream of?
I last visited London in July of 2012, and I already feel like it has been too long…
If I could teleport to London today, I’d spend the late morning strolling through Hyde Park, pretending I was Kate Middleton.
I’d relish in the ability to make it across town in minutes thanks to the Tube– a pleasant change from the hours spent behind the wheel in L.A. traffic.
I’d go shopping in Covent Gardens and finally buy that Burberry wallet I wished I could afford last summer.
I’d have afternoon tea at Fortnum and Mason’s Diamond Jubilee Tea Salon.
I’d ride The Eye again– despite my fear of heights, I just can’t get enough of it.
I’d catch another show on The West End, because who doesn’t love the theatre?
Sigh. Oh London.
As much as I love my home, I long to visit you again soon…
