One of my fav things about blogging, vlogging, tweeting...the lot...is making friends. I can honestly say that I have made some fabulous friends through a variety of platforms - some of whom will be friends for life, and Brogan is one of them. I think we started talking in 2011 sometime and we haven't really looked back. Our personalities seem to click and we just seem to laugh constantly together. We decided to have a very overdue day out together in London. As Brogan is from Bournemouth and I've grown up with London on my doorstep, I was happy to play the role of 'tour guide'.
We met at Waterloo and dashed over to Covent Garden by foot for breakfast. I think if there's one thing I taught Brogan this weekend, it is that London is small and walking is the best possible thing. And I know every shortcut going ;) We had breakfast at Le Pain Quotidien (as it was a little too early to devour Shake Shack for brunch) and caught up over fruit salad, green juices and scones. We soon headed back to the Southbank so I could treat Brogan to an outing at the London Dungeons. There was a lot of screaming and hand holding I can assure you, and after a hilarious face on the ride at the end, we made it out alive and Brogan felt pretty proud of herself. Next stop was a spot of shopping on Oxford Street and Piccadilly, followed by a late lunch sitting in the sun at Ed's Diner. As nightfall came, we stepped aboard the London Eye. It was a clear night so even in the darkness, you could see for miles. I honestly prefer the London Eye at night - seeing all the landmarks illuminated is just magical. At about 8pm, we said our goodbyes and headed our separate ways.
It was such a lovely day and I'm so glad I got to share a little bit of tourist magic with Brogan (thanks to my trusty Magic Pass). Honestly, I feel so lucky to have grown up in such a wonderful city. I don't think I could ever move away. I'm also lucky to have such wonderful friends, and true friends are like gold dust.
