    Beautiful pictures Boo, and love the stories behind each city. You look very happy in them as well. I remember you telling me how much I would love Cape Town and that you and I will go back one day, would love that! Um, Seoul was 2007, the year I graduated from Sutherland-Chan. Remember you weren’t here for my grad but surprised me with a sweet grad card and got me a graduating pillow that had 2007 on it.

    1. Thanks, Moo! Yes, we definitely need to get back to Cape Town. Thanks for the correction on Seoul 🙂

  2. It was so great reading this knowing that you got to go back to London this past week! 🙂 I love thinking back on my favorite places I’ve visited. Like you said, I’m usually looking to explore somewhere different, but there will always be countries and locations within them that have kept a firm grip on my heart. It’s a hard balance, too, now that I’m with M because I really want to show and share with him the places that had such a profound impact on me while forging our own path and making new memories.

    I’d love to hear more about your experience in Swaziland. (Apologies if it’s on the site and I haven’t found it yet.) We’ve discussed before how difficult international volunteering can be, and I’d like to hear your story.

    1. Thanks for reading, Gwen! Yes, it was so awesome that we lucked out and got to visit London briefly. I had no clue that would happen when I was writing this post.

      I totally hear you about wanting to explore new places with your partner but also show them places you’ve loved. Colin didn’t love London on his first visit back in high school and I really want to make him fall in love with it like I have.

      There are some posts on Swaziland on the blog (if you head up to the International travel section and go to Africa, most of those are in Swaziland). But I do want to write up a post sometime about international volunteering and my thoughts on it. Such a big topic with so many different opinions.

    Great pictures! We also love London.

    1. Thanks! Yes, London is amazing!

    I can understand London, but I have to say, I was not enamoured with Seoul. The cities I want to return to are much smaller: Segovia, Spain, Catania, Sicily, Heidelberg, Germany. These just felt more at home to me.

    1. Good choices! I love some smaller cities too. Sadly I haven’t been to any on your list but have heard great things about all of them.
