#TBT-My First Time Visiting London

The first time I went to London was in October 2012.  I had been in Rome for work and my mother met me afterwards for a mini Euro-Trip.  London was was the last stop on our tour.

The city stole my heart from day one.

Everything about London made my knees weak and my heart flutter with excitement – I still can’t explain it.  The city, the people, the culture just consumed me.

I clearly remember turning to my mom and saying “I could live here”.  She agreed that she could too.  At the time, it seemed impossible – I was in a long-term relationship, had a full-time job and as much as I loved to travel, never imagined calling  any place other than Toronto “home”.

Things change quite quickly in life though and 8 months later I was boarding a flight with a UK work visa in my hand – scared shitless and taking a big leap of faith.  More to come of that next Thursday.

  1. What a wonderful story ! I was also fascinated by the pulsing UK’s capital and lived there for 2 years – though I got a bit disillusioned about its hustle and bustle and moved out, I still think it is a charming metropolis !

    Check out my post about London, if you like 😊
