London – the final chapter

August 21, 2013 by leighnewlands

Wow, I apologise this has taken so long. If you see in my past posts, I recalled each week I spent in London and all the crazy, wonderful things I got up to. I also said I’d put some of the other photos that I/my sister took onto my blog so this is what the post will be dedicated to.

Since the 22nd January, it’s been a whirlwind back home in South Africa. I’ve kept telling myself “I must blog”, “I must inform people” and so on. Six months down the line and here I am, finally getting to it because it’s raining outside, college work is lame, I have hot chocolate in one hand and music blaring – I’m inspired to get write this (and more on my other tales since I’ve been back).

If you want to see about my trip from beginning to end, check out the archives from December – January. All I can say: London, you stole my heart. I will be coming back soon to reclaim it, don’t you worry ❤

Find some pics below. The rest are here on my Facebook page 🙂
