I'm a 21-year-old journalism student. I spent last semester living in Florence, Italy. These are my adventures.

London 30 Years Later (almost)

My mother actually didn't go to London until her second trip to Europe in 1984; so in all actuality this is London 28 years later.
But I still worked hard to acquire 15 of these pictures, so I'm counting them in this project.
My parents were in London with me. I met them there for a couple of days before escorting them back to Italy, where they stayed for a week. Besides the obvious joy of getting to see my parents, it was really cool to take these pictures with them. We got to base our itinerary on the photos. My mom finally got to see what she did to me with her crazy pictures. My dad was impressed by how well I've gotten this process down to an artform.
"Wait. She was two more steps this way I believe.... YES! The third point there lines up with that street post."
It was a lot of fun!

London Aquarium (and now, the London Eye)
This is probably one of my favorite photos of the project thus far.


Trafalgar Square


Trafalgar Square
I'm still convinced my mother was standing in the middle of the street to take this picture. I couldn't get it lined up right on either side of the intersection. I told her she knew I would be there 30 years later, and she must have had a death wish for me.

Glasshouse Street
This took a while to find. Thankfully I could zoom in to see the street sign. The construction messed this one up a little bit, but I'm still glad I found it!

Parliament
Right down to the blue car.
