Flashback Friday-Nostalgia and Longing

Ya’ll, I wish, from the very depths of my soul, that I could be a travel blogger. Why hasn’t someone super rich and stupid with their money hired me to travel and write up hilarious travel snafus? Why?

Not only do I long to travel more, I wish to go back to where I left my bleeding heart-London Town.

I went on my last, serious trip seven years ago. Seven.years.ago. 

This is unacceptable. 

Seven years ago was the last time I was in England, and a little bit of my soul dies every day more. My ultimate fear in this life is never getting a chance to get back there again. 

As I type (tap on my asshole phone that still thinks, after all this time, that I mean “duck”), my heart is literally aching and my stomach is in knots. 

It feels like homesickness. 

I miss where my heart belongs. 

Ya know?

#fbf to when I was living it up in London (This is also a flashback to when I thought I was fat-I wish I could be that fat again). 

I had some super sweet photography skills seven years ago. I’m glad I was able to travel all the way to England to capture this dude’s chops so well.

Those T-Rex arms, though.

Fucking Nandos. Dammit, I miss you.

I had just eaten a hot crossed bun. Baked goods create a certain glow about me.

Impossibly quaint.


I can still feel that cool, curry-scented breeze (it was a nice change of scent from the hotel room’s eau de funk). 
Le sigh

  1. I live only a few hours away from London and I’ve visited countless times in the past year, but I still see it with the eyes of a tourist. Such a beautiful, lively city… I truly hope you get to visit soon!

  2. I’d love to go back to London too, but I’m particularly homesick for Stockholm… that’s even more unacceptable at it being 15 years ago that I last was there! I was supposed to go back for a visit this year, but our savings took a huge hit when we suddenly had to move back to the US… siiiiiiggggghhhh

  3. I keep trying to figure out how to get someone to pay for my travel AND still pay my student loans… Dublin is where I feel home, but London is only .001% away!! I adore London, and I could happily wander down Regent St to my heart’s content and run through Kensington Gardens and stop at Fortnum. I haven’t been since 2015 and I thought that was too long- you have to go back!!!!
