Un dimanche à Londres

Tuesday, September 17, 2013


This week's 'Un dimanche à...' was spent in London, passing one of the most magical Sundays.

The day started with a 6am taxi pick up, destination Hyde Park, to watch my mum compete for Australia at the world triathlon series; not a usual Sunday, nor any day for that matter, occurrence.
The day ended on the other side of the city, and the Thames, with one of the best 'Sunday roasts' I've had the pleasure of devouring at the pup-friendly 'Cutty Sark' pub, named for the British ship that would often frequent Australia in the late 19th century, and a grand stroll around the Greenwich observatory. Mr M and I have decided that we'd very much like for this part of the world to be our home in the not too distant future...

This post marks the first in a few I'll post as a series on the trips I've recently taken and will take shortly. After working my little tush off all summer I had managed to plan, book and take four trips over the course of 28 days. I'm currently three trips down, I'll go with my mum on Saturday to Belgium for the weekend. It didn't really dawn on me that I would be away so often and frequently until it started to feel like I was never here! Which I actually haven't been, on this little blog, but that'll be changing soon, for sure.
