LIFE: 4 Days in London x Lunch at Pizza East x Supreme London Visit with Grace Ladoja & Friends (Day 1 & 2 of 4)

I still can’t believe it has been 10 years since I was last in London. Actually, I can believe it because I only travel for work – which is something I hope to change, but as a Taurus I can’t promise anything. When I first traveled to Europe, London was my least favorite place of all…and I’ll explain why. Growing up in “The States”, I had grand daydreams of Europe being so foreign and different. When I first came to London I had expectations of it being so different and weird, but it felt like New York. So – it wasn’t that I disliked it for any reason…I just had expectations of it being super foreign. Although it feels like New York, it also feels very different. This time around I really got to take in the culture, even though I was only there for 4 days. Here is a portion of my first 2 days…London_10_201301

On the plane, I watched a FASCINATING documentary on David Bowie. There was SO much I didn’t know about him. For example, he took on a different character every time he came out with a new album and they were all different from each other. I also saw that when he recorded “Young Americans”, one of his backup singers as a young and darling Luther Vandross. I love me some Luther.London_10_201305

Business Class on an International Flight is incoryable! I laid flat and slept the whole way. The guy next to me was a bit weird, but I was not studdin’ him. Also, I had a really sweet flight attendant.London_10_201307

Lonely Hotel Rooms are fun and then lonely…and in Europe they are always too cold for me. I waited around to meet up with my New York friends Shaniqwa and Angelo who also planned a trip to London and Paris – the same dates I was there! What luck…or bad luck if you know what trouble we are as a threesome.

The taxi’s are old school like they are in those old British movies. It felt like Harry Potter or something…even though I’ve never seen one Harry Potter film.London_10_201314
