London 2010 in pictures

Anja at The Tower

Outside The Tower

The Tower bridge.



At Melissa's houseboat. The place that she and her finance lives in is pretty amazing. It's not just a boat attached to a dock. It's an entire floating society, with roof gardens, an outdoor cinema and many other cool things. Like the movie Waterworld, but the real deal. 

Anja trying out the double decker bus.

Me en route to the first European Anthropologie store.

Anja posting a postcard to her school.
Buying a pattern rack at Morplan

Outside a Fred Perry store near Covent Garden. I could have bought their entire ladies range. They have so much more than the iconic polo shirt. Like this jacket for instance. Anyway I didn't buy anything for myself (a lot of the ladies stuff in the store was in silk and started at around $140, so I need to save up first), but my boyfriend got a red/white/black polo shirt that he looks awesomely handsome in!



Us saying bye bye from the London eye!

  2. >>Melissa: Thank you so much for being our hosts :) It was defintely one of the highlights of the trip and I have been telling all my friends about your boat community, and they are totally in awe! The rack is up now, I made a mess drilling the holes as usual, but now it looks great! I can't believe how many patterns such a small rack can hold!

  3. Your friend lives on a *houseboat* in *London*?! Would she like to trade lives with someone?! I'll volunteer!

    Lovely London pics. I'll be there in less than 2 weeks for vacation, and now I'm even more excited!

  4. >>ASW: I am tempted to switch too! But it is a lot of work also, renovating an old houseboat like they do.
    Ooh I am sure you will have a swell time, but be sure to bring a big wallet if you can. London is filled with shopping temptations!
