This is probably the only album which is a collection of photos from various trips to a city. I first flew out there in 2009 and spent a good 6 or so years flying there consistently a few times a year. It unlocked the wonder of travel for me and as I wrap up my European travels I couldn't think of a better place to start my journey. Weather is usually kind of shit but there's always something happening and the city itself is changing at a rapid pace. Like New York City, its an insanely expensive place to party in and if my trips weren't 3-4 days I think I would be broke halfway through. The UK pound has lowered in value against the dollar as of late, so it's probably the best time to visit and save some coin.
The first thing that reminds me I've made it to london is Paddington station. I love the lighting in this station.
It doesn't snow often in London but it did when we went, this is the hip Camden Town area.
I was able to get out of the city on a day trip to the ruins at Teotihuacan. The weather wasn't as hot as the previous days and it was surprisingly empty, I felt like I had the whole archaeological park to myself at times. Highly recommended!
The giant bicycle wheel that is the London Eye. Never been up there.

As I've mentioned before, London is a great introduction to Europe(I know its not part of the EU, shush). Anytime I've gone, people were friendly, the language is of course a breeze and the tube is a very efficient way to get around. I think once you have experienced London, you owe it to yourself to explore the rest of England, as it's personality differs quite dramatically for such a small-ish country. Even other major cities like Manchester have a noticeable change in personality and demeanor.
