About a month ago, I wrote a blog post (here) about attending a professional dance tour featuring Strictly Come Dancing‘s professional dancers Anton du Beke and Erin Boag. (Okay, technically, Erin is no longer on Strictly, but you get the idea.) After seeing that show, I almost immediately made the decision that I would try to go back again and see it before it ended. Luckily, I found that their final show of the tour would be in Wimbledon, which is right outside of London and on the Underground service, so naturally, I got myself a ticket since I could do that trip in a day.

As I’m sure, many of you know about how much Strictly has meant to me over the past two years or so, as well as the people who I’ve met through the show. Toward the end of 2016, I had the chance to begin starting to meet some of the people who I’d gotten to know of because of the show. Having lived in New York for the first (almost two) years of discovering my deep love for Strictly, and the happiness that it brought me, I decided that when I moved to England, I would save to attend the live tours of my favourite professional dancers. And a month before my move to England, I started making that dream come true.

Well, I’ve done it – week one in England is coming to a close. I’ve officially been in England just over a week now, and I figure that this blog would be another way to keep everyone updated on how its going. The past few weeks have been crazy, but I’ve finally gotten myself settled down enough to write this.
Also before I go on, I want to take note to the fact that yesterday was World Suicide Prevention Day, and I want to dedicate this blog post to a few people – people who have helped me – and the people who have encouraged me to take this step. A lot of them already know their significance in my life, but it’s worth mentioning once again, so to Izzy, Becca, Niki, Liz & Katie – thank you, this one is for you all.

I think that most of you know by now that I travelled to London last winter for almost two weeks, but I’ve never really talked a lot about my tip. But here, I’m going to do that. I’ll talk about my favorite things that I did, people I met, places I saw – you get the picture. The positive side is that I really never had a “bad” moment on this trip, that is until I had to start packing to come home, so a wonderful happy post about everything that I did in the ten days when I explored the city on my own.
First off, you should all know that this was my first big solo trip that I had taken. In the past, I have traveled alone to visit friends and family, but I’ve always known the people who I was staying with. There is the small exception of when I went down to Connecticut for a night to attend a dear friend’s book signing and poetry reading, but other than that, I’ve always stayed with people I know. And visiting London has always been a dream of mine, but I never planned on exactly how incredible this experience would be.
So, without further ado … London 2016.
(The following post will contain a lot of links to various places that I visited throughout my trip, in case you’re curious about my favorite things.)
