Goodbye, London!

The last thing I remember our dear friends Ben and Michelle doing before they left London, was sitting in our lounge room, waiting until it was time to go to the airport for their flight. Ben was investing the time wisely on the PS3.

It seems fitting then, that the last thing that we’ve done in London, was sit in our dear friend’s Nick and Suzie’s lounge room, whilst I wisely invested my time playing Nick’s PS3.

People often ask us, “What’s better – New York or London?” – to which there is no real answer – both cities are amazing, and each one has features about it which make it “better” than the other. In the end though, it all comes down to personal taste.

For me, if I was after a 1 year escape from reality, I would head to The Big Apple. But overall, for a life: I would take London.

It’s been an amazing three-and-a-bit years, and I want to say a huge thanks to everyone that’s been part of it.

Farewell London, it’s been a pleasure!

    Gerrod, you bought a tear to my eye…

    At least you can leave both London and New York behind for now, knowing you have the memories for life… and you will return one day (I’m sure)…

    You guys definitely made the most of your time here, particularly fitting in an amazing number of places in your last couple of weeks. Have a safe trip home and farewell for now.

    I still can’t believe you’ve gone… boo.

    But seriously, I can’t wait to see happy smiley pics of you in Brissy with your loved ones.
