The best thing about England is the fact that is where my soulmate was born.
Helen is the most amazing human to ever grace this earth with her presence. The fact that I only get to see her a few times a year is overshadowed by the amount of fun we have when we do see each other.
So enjoy this post which is basically just a bunch of photos.
Johannes and I arrived in London on the Saturday and just ate dinner and slept, on the Sunday we went out and explored a bit on our own and then we met up Helen! We went to eat Nandos and just wandered around London and sat in Leicester Square. (Helen also gave me my birthday present - she made me the Map of Paris!!! That's the necklace that Esmeralda gave Quasimodo in the Hunchback of Notre Dame, my fave Disney film)
And I obviously couldn't visit London and not see two of my favourite people Elli and Boots. Fantastic people that always get me smiling.
And when Elli and Boots happen gin and tequila happen, always. And when that happens an overload of selfies and playing with my camera happens. See above and below.
But I am so privileged to have been able to spend time with four of my favourite people within the 6 days I spent in my favourite city, and for the fact that I have these people in my life. They all make my heart swell with such love, it truly is a pity that three of them live across an ocean from me and the fourth lives 6 hours away by train. But when we do get together, it's golden.
AND THEN HARRY POTTER TOURS HAPPENED!
I cannot tell you how long I've waited to go there, it was the most special experience of my life so far. I swear my heart was going to burst out of my chest at any given moment.
So we got there, and Helen mentioned that we were there as a birthday thing for me and I got a 'star of the day' pin and I GOT TO OPEN THE DOORS TO THE GREAT HALL. CAN YOU SEE MY EXCITEMENT!?
I cannot tell you how many times I cried, and how amazing it felt to walk around that place. I could live there, it felt exactly like coming home.
Most of the photos are of me, but that's because Helen took my camera and decided she was taking all the photos that day. So enjoy.

Another thing we did in London was go to a comedy show, another birthday thing. Helen bought tickets for us to go see my favourite comedian, Russell Howard(!!!!) at a show in Camden where he tried out new material for his arena tour in 2017.
Best comedian out there, no competition
We had another day where we just spent time together, Helen, Johannes and I. Walking around London, eating food and laughing our arses off. It was probably the best time I've had in London, and every time I go it gets harder to leave.
I will see you again London, hopefully very soon.
