One month down, eight more to go.

Phantom. Incredible.
For those of you who didn't know, I've been overseas for the last month. I flew out of Wellington on March 18th, spent 18 days in London, and have been in Philadelphia for the last 10 days. In all fairness, my days have blurred, so this will have random highlights and some pictures.

England highlights:
1. Surprising an old high school friend in Brighton.
2. Seeing Louis CK at the O2.
David Nash at Kew Gardens.
3. Seeing Phantom of the Opera.
4. Visiting Kew Gardens.
5. Going to Yale University Press and doing work experience.
6. Watching the Cambridge-Oxford boat race.
7. People watching on the tube.
8. Walking around a city and remembering why I love history so much. History geek fo' life.

Central Park. 
Then I flew to America, the land of the free.
Highlights include:
1. Seeing Sister Act on stage.
2. Seeing Aziz Ansari perform stand up.
3. Visiting Hersheypark, and going 200 ft in the air, just to be slammed down at 75mph.
4. Going to my first ever winetasting at Tolinos winery in Bangor, PA.
5. Discovering the wonder of Netflix.
Phillies vs. the Mets.
6. Eating at PF Changs.
7. Just walking around Central Park.
8. Catching a Phillies game and singing 'Take me out to the ball game' in the 7th innings.

Lots of people said to me I wouldn't want to come home. But that's far from the truth. Travelling alone gets lonely after a while. Plus I miss my bed.

See you soon New Zealand.
