656. Eurotrip Day 1 of 28 | Arriving in London!

Regent Street
Hello from London! It's currently 1:30am here. We arrived in London early "yesterday" morning. We flew from Toronto Pearson Airport to London Gatwick (which is very inconvenient I now realize). From there we took the Gatwick Express into the city and then a cab to my hotel. We were both so exhausted by the time we arrived with jetlag and all.
My boyfriend stayed here most of the day then flew to Spain. I am always used to travelling/exploring alone and love it, but now that he's gone I feel a strange sense of loneliness lol. I guess this is a good thing though. I'll be going later this week to meet him again..then we will continue our month-long trip around several countries in Europe. So excited!! Besides Hong Kong, London is the city I've travelled/spent the most time in. So coming back I got a feeling of familiarity. All the other cities on this trip will be ones I'm visiting for the first time ever though.

Coincidentally my friend Anouk is also in London these few days so we will be meeting up again. Every time we meet up it's in a different city. One of these days I'll actually make it to Luxembourg..hahah.

I'm going to try my best to do these daily blog posts again, or at least every other day. I really enjoy doing them when I travel, looking back and writing about the day to look back on in the future. I am working the same as I do in Toronto though (I work online/remotely) so I am still going to be pretty busy. Hopefully I will have a bit of time at the end of every night to do this. I will post a maximum of 10 photos per day then the rest I'll post when I get back to Toronto. Which - as you may know with my Asia blog posts - will be quite a lengthy process.

view from the plane
It was my first time flying with British Airways. Overall the flight was pretty good. Just the air in the cabin was super dry. I managed to sleep a little which I *never* usually do on flights.

Oxford Street
Bodeans BBQ
I'm staying near Oxford Circus this time. After checking in to the hotel we took a nap for awhile then went out in search of food. Since we were so hungry we kind of chose the first decent one we saw. We ended up at Bodean's BBQ which turned out to be very good.

Puma sneakers
If you know me, you'll know that flat shoes/sneakers are extremely rare for me to buy. I decided to buy a new pair for this trip so I got these Puma ones. I really love the colour. They match my socks colour pretty well too hahah.
