So this is the 4th and final post in the ‘168 Hours in London’ series. It seems like we got here really quickly – where has the time gone? It’s my last week as an intern at gp studio living in London, so what have I been upto?
Well at the weekend I travelled West to Chelsea for posh charity shops and rainbow coloured houses – read the post here:
Living for the weekend like the grown ups we are, on Saturday evening I went out in Camden with Nadia and her friends from Uni.
Judging by how my head felt on Sunday morning, it was a great night! The boys ordered these Pink Flamingo cocktails – it was like Barbie in a glass.
Spring has sprung? It was lovely to see a sea of daffodils in Stratford (which is otherwise quite grey and gloomy):
Waking up at 6.30 everyday does have some perks when you get to witness a beautiful (but slightly apocalyptic) sky like this:
On Tuesday I was a researcher/photographer for the morning at a well known department store…
Wearing a badge made me feel very important and everyone was super friendly!
I’ve started walking more places now which is quite unheard of in London I know, but everything is actually a lot closer than you think and I am falling further out of love with the tube. I know you can hop on the tube and be somewhere within like 10 minutes but I’m finding it quite expensive and unhealthy compared to walking. Two nights this week I walked from Southwark to Oxford Street and I really enjoyed it, look at the view:
I ventured through Covent Garden, Piccadilly Circus, Leicester Square and Trafalgar Square on my travels, taking in the sights and adding to the map in my mind. I’ll be that good that I’ll be able to give directions to tourists soon ha
But as much as I love walking, the bus is still the place to be on the morning commute! I’m rediscovering my love for music every morning with a London view:
Inspiration can be found in all kinds of places, the sky is the limit…
I’ve had the opportunity to work on some great projects this week and have really enjoyed it.
Rain + Bus + Suitcase + Travel = a pain. What I’ve found is that London transport is just not made for anyone who isn’t a Londoner.
And as quickly as that, my 4 weeks as an intern is up! Back on a train to the East of England I go…
The past 672 hours have been an amazing adventure. I have learnt so much, explored so many places and had so much fun with old and new friends. Being a YES (wo)man was definitely the right choice – sometimes you just have to take risks to get rewards!
Will I be back in London on Monday? Well, I’m not giving anything away just yet…
