Tomorrow I'm leaving London for Reykjavik! As depressing as I found London at times I am a bit sad to go. It is an interesting place with endless, interesting things to see and do. I've been enjoying hanging out on the roof of Rachael's building and looking at the city from up there. I was just out there and saw 4 planes, a blimp and a helicopter, which made me happy for some reason. I also ate dinner and had a nap up there yesterday, hoping that the door wouldn't somehow get locked behind me.

The sun finally came out the last day or two. Hyde Park smelled like roses and fresh cut grass.. Pity an approaching migrane distracted me so much :(

Rach and I went to a place called Brick Lane on Monday; a neat suburb with this weird mixture of hipsters and what Wikipedia just told me is Bangladeshi folk. We went to a cafe decorated with bookshelf wall paper, cartoon doodles and pictures of 90's celebrities. It really reminded me of Suspension in Newcastle. Oh yeah, they also call a flat white a 'fat wife'.

Last Sunday we went to an exhibition at the Natural History Museum called 'Animals Inside Out' which was fascinating and nauseating simultaneously. Google it! It's pretty cool.

Anyway yes Iceland tomorrow! Via Munich :/ It's a bit silly how it's worked out but good thing flying is still a fun novelty to me!

Just realised I have NO IDEA how it works transferring between different flights when it's all been booked separately. I guess I will work that one out tomorrow :| Wish me luck!

I'll leave you with a cool picture I took from the roof the other night.
