WANDERING THROUGH LONDON

WANDERING THROUGH LONDON

“Aesthetically, London is just beautiful; it’s a gorgeous city. The architecture, monuments, the parks, the small streets – it’s an incredible place to be.” Sara Bareilles

A couple of weeks ago I found myself with a day of work and fed up with the Manchester rain I decided to jump on a train and head to London for a day of art and museums. And in true southern style, the sun was shining!! If Seattle is the rainy city of the state’s then Manchester holds the title for the UK. It’s been a long time since I visited London without a reason or an event, usually, I am rather anal about making plans and researching places so I can cram as much in as possible. Trying to take more pleasure in just wandering and living without a plan, I decided to jump on a train and just be.

First, stop the Tate Modern, to see Jenny Holzer work in the artist rooms.

“American artist Jenny Holzer presents statements that can provoke strong responses. Whether encountered on city streets or in art galleries, Holzer’s work asks us to consider the words and messages that surround us. Her art takes many forms, including stone benches, projections, signs, posters, paintings, plaques and textiles. Words are central to her work, whether pasted on a wall, flickering from an electronic sign, carved in granite or stitched in wool.”

I continued to spend the rest of the day jumping on and off the tube and playing tourist!

Also, this blog post has zero reasons for being other then I took some pictures I liked and I wanted to share them on here! So a little bit sorry that it has no flow nor probably won’t make much sense!

For now, enjoy St Paul Cathedral!

“One of the the things I most liked about the city – apart from all its obvious attractions, the theatre, the galleries, the exhilarating walks by the river – was that so few people ever asked you personal questions.”– Julia Gregson

For all the times I have visited London I have never noticed the statues at Westminister, which makes me wonder just how many things have I missed always planning always rushing?!

“A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.” – Winston Churchill

“A large part of the present anxiety to improve the education of girls and women is also due to the conviction that the political disabilities of women will not be maintained.” Millicent Fawcett

China town, ok I have no idea what is going on with me lately but everything cute is setting me off in either floods of tears or making me gooey inside its making all soft! But at the gates of China town, there must have been 10 couples trying to get selfies together which set me off! They all looked so cute and shout out to all the guys who were trying to get the perfect pictures for their girlfriends!
