For my final post of 2014, I wanted to show off some of the photos I took around London since I arrived in September. These are some of my favorite moments from my adventures around the city the last few months. Thanks for welcoming me so wonderfully to Londontopia, and have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

  1. Lovely photos but why do Americans obbsess about uisng the first person. 14 times in about 100 words. Hope your life continuous to be a rich and interesting experience.

    • Better question for you, Ian: why feel the need to criticize her writing style? It IS a blog about what SHE is doing and what SHE is seeing. Should it be in the third person?

      “Samantha walked along a bridge, and Samantha took a picture.”

      Perhaps a more colorful way of expressing it?

      “The clock jumped out from behind the bridge, imprinting itself on the camera’s lens!”

      I mean, what the hell do you want other than to be a stereotypical snooty Brit?

  2. Have been following your posts since you began. You’re doing a brilliant job. I look forward to the new year. Thanks for bringing back wonderful memories.

  3. Love the photos. They really give you the “feel” of London. Have you tried the cheese sandwiches at Burroughs market yet? yum!!!

  4. my daughter just started her semester abroad at Kings college, she loves her first week there. I will forward your article to her. thank you
