London, 2022



Covid is finally over, so it was about time to resume long-distance trips. And of course, it was amazing, 23 days. I didn't sleep a single day home this vacations. Worked a Friday, flew on the same day, back on the airport a Monday to work on the same morning.

Anyway, as I love this city, of course I had to go back. My 3rd time there, but still we decided to have 11 days there. London was just a bit emptier, Covid definitely left an impact.

Love this pic, that building's so futuristic and industrial, and crazy that it was designed near half a century ago




Also London in inclement weather always makes it look like a different time






you sexy fox!
