London is approaching!

I am finally ironing out my London plans. I leave the night of the 8th and come back the 20th. I have been compiling a list of things to do. This weekend I am hoping to put them all together and come up with some sort of loose plan. It is all kind of coming together last minute which is ok by me. For once it feels nice to not be so constrained. A friend of mine has graciously offered me her couch to crash on the second weekend I am there, and I should know within the next few days if another friends roommates are cool with me sleeping on the couch a few nights the first weekend . In between I plan on staying at hostels.

I plan on keeping a sketchbook my entire trip in the same vein as the one that I kept while in Copenhagen. A sort of visual travel diary, documenting color, shapes, patterns and anything else that I find interesting along the way. I haven't been keeping a sketchbook at all since I started working fulltime back in September. It will be 7 months this week. I am hoping that London will not only be a nice getaway but it will also act as an artistic catalyst of sorts for me.
