Here I am in Wandsworth - new page coming I hope!!
Well I moved from this lovely spot looking over this park 7 years ago - so a new page and new look is well and truly on the cards!!?? I lived here for 7 years and still live in the general vicinity so am back up here fairly often but a good change and a good dustup is as good as a holiday they say!..so will find how to save this page elsewhere and have a whole new look here of what my travels have meant to be so far done up in a nice arrangement ha ha!???
# Amazing! 30,000 views! If I had known who was making that lucky 30,000th occasion I'd have rigged something special like a lucky diversion to one of my travelpages to rate some tips or something! Thanks though VT for enabling the last 6 and half a years!
I came to London from Sydney in June 2000 - had visited here with my mother for our very first trip to Europe in Oct 1999 following on from an excellent tour around Turkey with 110 Aussies and Kiwis for 2 weeks to grande finale with an international meeting of 10,000 to praise and worship in the amphitheatre at Ephesus - another priviliged experience in my life! - and then about 70 of us continued on to Israel
- and then from back in Istanbul we went on to the UK for 4 weeks.
Saw too much of Scotland and Ireland and the fens area of England that we ran out time and had to make do with only 4 days to jam in the continent - 4 days in France and Switzerland whetted my appetite so for a big international christian nurses conference in Edinburgh in 2000 and the 10 yearly event of the passion play at Oberammegau also being on in 2000 I returned with the opportunity to stay and work as well - supplement all those ideas financially too.
I travelled for 2 and half months until starting work 11th September 2000 (what an anniversary to share!) walking to work and all over London from the places I lived - started off at West Norwood with a nurse cousin for 3 weeks then to Fulham 4 months with a houseload of aussie and kiwi nurses, and then to Lancaster Gate with a bunch of wild spanish girls!
Then moved with an Iranian landlady in an apartment right on top of the big 24 hour Tesco up at Earls Court! and then to here where i had some South African friends at Wandsworth - all these areas have taken me through the lovely parks that London is great on - that was way back in 2001 and i am still here.
but what a God blessed spot, i will show you some pics of our lovely spot - our flat on the 3rd floor of a 19 floor building faces right over a lovely park - and especially since renovations we can open our windows wide and its as if we are outside in it! we get all day sun and especially the sunsets. imagine - we could have been on the other side facing straight into dismal buildings and car park and shopping centre!
