— Aug 2009–
I was talking to the best friend one night, back in August 2009. The one who had moved to London. The one whom I hadn’t seen for 2 years. The one whom talked to me about Italy during the whole term of year 10 economics. The one with whom I made jokes about eating all the pizza and pasta and drinking so much caffe espressos til our bellies would pop. The one whom wanted to travel all of Europe one day. Soon.
So we were chatting along and all of a sudden a crazy idea popped into my head.
Me: “Why don’t I come visit you in London and we make the year 10 economic class dream come true?”
The best friend: “Ohmygoodness, YES!!! Come stay with me in London too!”
And that was how it all began.
