There's nothing I find as empowering as being alone in a big city. I was so lucky to go to London for an entire week, and I came back a different person.
The ultimate freedom I experienced when my plane started landing, and I had a clear view on the centre of London from my window. Taking good photos from a plane is actually harder than I thought, because you move so fast! I immediately felt that it was going to be an amazing week, and it certainly was. I was so busy I could barely take pictures, but more on London later!
