I’ll be leaving the country soon and it will be the first time that I’ve done so since I’ve gotten here.
I’m excited about it, but I don’t think I’ve really processed it yet.
And to be clear, we’re going to London, so this is not as out there as we could possibly go. I think I’ll be able to pick up the language pretty quickly. I don’t think I’ll be able to repress my strong and constant desire to mimic accents, which is a problem here, at home. And if you don’t understand why that’s a problem, you haven’t heard me do my Boston accent.
Sorry, that was a digression.
Or maybe it wasn’t.
I’m starting to become anxious about the fifteen thousand ways I might act as an obnoxious American tourist, without even meaning to do so.
I’m also concerned about the likelihood that I’m going to miss out on something. I have no idea if I’m ever likely to go back to London, so I need to pack everything I can into this one trip.
Driving is a concern.
So, as always, I’m turning something fun into an anxiety riddled blur of emotions and I just need to take it easy.
But if you have any recommendations for things to do in London, lemme know.
Because I’m worried about missing anything.

Dylan, went a long time ago, but you should definitely see Greenwich, Tower of London, and if you get a chance, take a trip outside the city to see Stonehenge, Windsor, or Bath. Those are my votes for you.
I’ll try and check it all out. I’ll be there for almost a week, so I’ll have some time to kill. Thanks for the suggestions!
