My Thoughts: Leaving London

So here we are...

We landed in Malaysia last night and we're warm, happy and only slightly jet lagged. I will blog about the journey and our arrival in Malaysia soon, but I am happy to say that the journey wasn't totally counter productive. I was able to spend a handful of hours on Photoshop (thanks to Emirates' in seat power supply and relatively large seat area in Economy-bonus!) and in addition to preparing a number of blog posts I was able to create a collage of the Instagram photos I took recently of London. I have previously blogged photos of London here and even if I lived there for the rest of my life, I don't think I would ever tire of taking photos of this vast, gentle monster of a city.

I don't know about other people, but when I knew I was leaving London, a city I have come to love unconditionally, I was even more eager to mentally and photographically capture as much of it as I could; the good and the bad. This collage is therefore dedicated to London, I will miss you madly and will never underestimate how special it is to leave a city and know that I could return at any given time and call it home.
