May 17th, 2018: London, England

Dear World,

I’m in London! I am alive! And I’ve never been more thrilled to be.

It’s been great here but there are things I miss:

  1. The US Dollar
  2. Not having to introduce myself as American
  3. Hot showers

Thankfully I also have found ways to deal with these:

  1. Only spend money on food, accommodation, and transportation. There are free events everywhere and 90% of museums are free.
  2. Don’t be embarrassed. Embrace that I’m American and do everything I possibly can to avoid talking about Trump, teachers, and gun control.
  3. This one is self-inflicted…. but hey there’s a bed and breakfast in Iceland patiently waiting for me.

Here are three awesome things I did:

  1. Found the hostel! (This was a BIG one for me. I predict I’m going to get lost a lot on this trip…)
  2. Attended a free comedy show last night.
  3. Got enough sleep so now I can actually do cool things. I’ve been terribly jet-lagged!

And here are three things I’ve learned here in London so far: 

  1. You are a jerk if you travel on the tube during the evening rush. Everyone just wants to go home.
  2. Yes, people know where Arizona and Pennsylvania are.
  3. Napkins are tissues?
