London at Dusk

Hey Tubers,

Firstly, a resounding THANK YOU for the incredibly generous outpouring of birthday greetings a few days ago. I was surprised in the lunch room at LAMDA on the 27th by Amanda, Lily, and company with a chocolate cake, candles, and a song (Brian surprised me with a HobNob ice cream sandwich). I cannot tell you how deeply touched I am by them, and all who have wished me well. It has been a pleasant reminder of the seemingly inexhaustible amount of love and support I am surrounded by wherever I go; I feel truly blessed.

"Having said that" (any Curb fans out there!?), hows about a little update, eh?

Now that we have escaped the ruthless clutches of the beast that is jet lag (for the most part) and have developed a somewhat normal living routine here, we've begun to explore the area. As this is my 3rd time here, I haven't been jumping to hit the touristy stuff. I've been enjoying exploring new places and pubs around the area (maybe I'll do something of a pub review sometime...). Here are a few pictures I've taken, mainly from last weekend when Savannah, Brian, Eryn, and I explored the London Bridge area. Although the weather is gloomy, the sights are absolutely stunning.

What UP Tubers!?

We've made it! We're here! Alive! And there's barely any snow on the ground (wimps). After a smooth flight [courtesy of Virgin Atlantic], we made it to our beautiful digs. This place is like a hotel. Below are a few pics, including one of our BOMB-ASS kitchen. No, VLog #2 is not included. I'm still putting it together - remember this is a mixed media blog. Anyway, stay tuned, it should be on deck.

VLog #1 is HERE!

Shazam. The first video log is here. Unfortunately, it's not as positive as we had expected. Oh well. Everything happens for a reason, right?

More to come [hopefully] soon.
