London... where things that are right are actually left. In a former life, I used to travel a ton. Growing up in Southern California, I pretty much stayed on the west coast. I had some opportunities to travel in college to China to visit my dad, but that was all vacation stuff. Well traveling for work is a whole other animal.
I have been to cool places like London, Tokyo, Germany, France, Spain, and China. I have also been banished to places like Wisconsin and Tennessee... basically those US States that I cant spell without spell check. The good is that I got to experience the world, but some places are obviously better than others. I am always up to experience something at least once. Some places you will fall in love with (e.g. Tokyo - because of robots, toys, sushi, noodles, more robots, more sushi, and beers) and others I will NEVER ever have to visit again (e.g, Memphis - because people are surprised I speak English and tell me I am not from around there).
Anyways, after several years, I am back in London for the 2nd time in the past 6 months for my current job. It is so interesting to be here. It is like being in a Twilight Zone episode (for the young-ins, google that shit!). I understand everyone, but I don't (because Brits have a funny accent and different words) and everyone drives on the other side of the road. I guess the point of it all is that I have taken it for granted that I have been here so many times. I came with my team and they wanted to sight see... and I was going to pass because I have seen it all before... I ended up going just to be a good sport and I appreciated the hell out of what London has to offer. I don't know why I assumed it was all the same. Maybe it is because I am older now? I have no clue, but I just wanted to say that I was foolish to not appreciate this opportunity for what it is. I mean working always sucks, but getting to travel the world is a really nice perk.
So in the spirit of having fun and not giving a fuck what people think, I took a Baymax Tsum Tsum and went around London and some other nearby landmarks and took a series of photos to document my trip. If I make it back here, I will continue to do this and keep this tradition going. Stay tuned for more adventures around the world. As the Brits would say "Cheers!"
