Around the world part 9 – London

Day two in London we decided to explore the city for the afternoon. The train from Amanda’s place in Earlsfield to Waterloo was only 15 minutes and once there we walked across the bridge the get a good look at the Eye, Big Ben, and the Thames river.  Then right to all the squares (Trafalgar, Piccadilly Circus, and leicester) and a pub for a break. Pubs were packed due to remembrance day celebrations.


  

Spotted this group in Trafalgar Square taking Christmas card photos.



Then we met Kirsten, Ian and Jesse for some lunch and a stroll through Covent Gardens. I met Kirsten at a hostel in Florence 20 years ago. The day we met we had gone out shopping separately and then met up after to go out at night. Turned out we both bought the same leather jacket and clothes. Kind of funny that 20 years later we are still matching our outfits…




That night had a great home cooked dinner with Amanda and then off to Scotland for our last world tour stop before home.

Had fun exploring the #sunshinecoast with @katiemah and @racheladdante this past weekend. Do you know what to do if you run into a bear 🐻 in the woods? #hike #nature #rainforrest #explorebc #adventuresmart #bearsafety @bc_adventuresmart
This is one of my favourite illustrations from the Roberts Creek Mandala this year. Such a great project. It was started in 1997 when a group of friends painted over some negative graffiti. I first saw it back in 2007, and love that it's created new each year by the community and still going strong. The boy in the centre is the original organizer's son. #art #communityart #mandala #robertscreek #sunshinecoast #explorebc #robertscreekmandala
Seven years ago I spent a life changing month in #costarica for yoga teacher training at @anamayaresort Met so many wonderful people, fell in love with the jungle, and shifted my life's trajectory. #throwbackthursday #ytt #puravida #infinitypool #oceanview #yoga #namaste #sandtoesha #santosha
17 years since I first hiked here. My second visit, still gorgeous, but now this trio of lakes is no longer secret(ish). #bestroadtripever #nature #lovetrees
Made it to the island. By this last leg of the road trip riding felt like floating through air. #motorcycleroadtrip #explorebc #motorcycle #vancouverisland #telegraphcove #cumberland #porthardy #suzukitu250x #roadtrip #islandhighway #hwy19 #hwy19a #2000km #1300miles #atwyld #britishcolumbia
At the end of #route16 we explored #princerupert and then hopped on the Northern Expedition for the 16 hour voyage down the inside passage. Gorgeous trip through the #greatbearrainforest We didn't see bears but saw lots of whales. #motorcycleroadtrip #explorebc #motorcycle #insidepassage #bcferries #rainforest #surroundedbynature #britishcolumbia #roadtrip #heritagediscoveryroute #nature #coast #moto #suzukitu250x
