Wandering around London

Last week I spent a couple of days wandering around London in between long stretches of time sitting in the Ghanian High Commission applying for and collecting a visa for my upcoming trip.
 I'm off to Ghana a week today, but for now here are some pictures of my London trip.

    1. Thank you, it was so nice to spot plants growing in the city

  2. Love the photos. The sky looks a little gloomy but it is nice to have a glimpse of blue sky!

    1. Thank you. Yep that little bit of blue helps to make everything better

  3. These are great! I reallllly want to get back to London, I only visited a few days almost 10 years ago- eep! The surfing in the city is funny, especially because it looks so cold :) Hope you're having a great trip!

    1. Thank you, I love visiting London but its a bit mad at the moment with all the Olympic preparations It was really chilly when I saw them surfing. The people waiting were all shivering
