Where has May gone? Honestly I feel like it should be 10th, not the 27th! It has been a busy, but great month. I feel like I have been making the most of each moment and taking time where I need it to check in with myself. I’ve also been more social that I have been for a long time and it’s been fun. I do need to find my balance and make sure I do say no when I need to. It’s all feels good though.
Last week I got to go to London for work and as I was on my own I made the most of my trip by staying overnight and doing some exploring that evening. I also got to practice some of my photography skills. I wandered from Victoria area over to Buckingham Palace and St James Park. There were lots of people around and I realised after it was the Queen’s Annual Garden Party. It was fun to stop and people watch for a while. Lots of uniforms and fancy outfits wandering around. Also watching the British tradition of queuing in formal wear. I was entertained for free and it was fun. it was a grey evening, but lovely and warm so walking around was a pleasure and it was nice to slow down and observe the business of London and take the photographs below.
I’m lucky that I get to to some lovely places with my job and that my work encourages taking time when visiting a place to properly visit, learn and appreciate what it means to be there. I’ve a few trips coming over over the next year where I am making the most of the opportunity to explore and fulfill my wanderlust in more ways.
