…in a giant van. Let’s just say that driving a van the size of my apartment on the wrong side of the road was quite the adventure. Fortunately neither us, nor the van were injured during the journey across Germany, through the Netherlands, across the North Sea on a ferry, from Harwich to East London and back again. I was quite happy to turn that giant van back in at the rental car company and I decided I would take a nice long break from driving (which lasted about a week). Even though my time in London was brief, and a lot of time was spent catching up on sleep, I really had the best time. I photographed the sweetest couple with poodles! (check out the photos here), spent far too much time and money in the baby department at Liberty shopping for my dear friend’s new baby girl, and went wild shopping at Marks & Spencer stocking up on British and American-esque food (obviously had to take advantage of a trip without luggage requirements!). The last time I was in London was over three years ago (and it was one of my very first blog posts!) and I am already planning our next trip back. That city is all sorts of special.
