At My Own Pace (#152)

As much as I love structure, I’ve really enjoyed wandering around London. Today, I took the tube to a random station and just started walking! I came across the British Public Library and got my Reading Pass as a nice souvenir and hopefully something I can use again in the future.

This mentality has helped me feel far more comfortable exploring Brixton and the surrounding area. England could really feel like home if I spent enough time here. I finally move into Essex tomorrow and I couldn’t be more excited. It’s another area to explore and make my own and I’m really looking forward to it. This trip has been incredible so far and I’m grateful I’ve been able to take my time and do this at my own pace.
