I could go on and on about all the things I did, but you can just take a look through all my pictures. I even made a little video from all the clips I took on my camera. I’m not the best at video, so bear with me.
After three weeks in London, I’m finally back from the UK. Three weeks is a weird time to be abroad. I just starting adjusting to life there—riding the tube everywhere, making sure to look right because traffic goes the opposite way—now it feels weird being back home. But I’ve been home for a few weeks now, so I’m adjusted back to the California lifestyle. Now I want to recap on what an amazing trip I went on.
I went to London and got the amazing opportunity to work for a company called Lunar Mission One. Their mission is to drill a core sample of the moon to discover its origins. But they also want to create a time capsule of life on Earth which they will then place in the hole they dug, so in thousands of years from now people can see what our life was like in 2015. It’s pretty cool.
So we didn’t go to London just to drink pints all day, we had a lot of work ahead of us. We spent most of our days from 9-5 slaving away on our laptops in a freezing cold bar in our hotel. It was exhausting at times, but I’m pretty proud of our results. The work my team and I created for this company is pretty cool, if I do say so myself. However, we’re not allowed to release any of the work we did until the company does…so I can’t show your our work just yet. HOWEVER, here’s a little sneak peak of my design. I created these shirts for our whole design team which we proudly wore all around London. I’m pretty proud of the result.
Even though I worked a lot, I managed to see a lot of the city, and I fell in love with London. I took the tube everywhere—from king’s cross Station to Buckingham Palace. I even rode the train out to the countryside to see Oxford for a day. I did all the cliche things like take a picture with their red phone booths and ride the London Eye. It was all wonderful.
But my favorite experience was being able to see Phantom of the Opera at Her Majesty’s theatre. I got dressed all fancy and ventured out on my own to see it, and I’m so glad I did. I was able to view the musical from front row on the balcony. It was amazing! And I only cried three times.
It was such an amazing experience and I’m so glad I got the opportunity to do it. I hope one day in the future I can be reunited with the lovely city of London again.
Enjoy the rest of your day!
