Good-bye Mykonos!

The internet access here is crazy expensive, so I'll keep this short. So far Greece has been fantastic! I'm still looking like a Canadian with my white freckled skin, but I could never compete with all the bronzed Italian women (I've never seen so many gorgeous women and bodies) I won't even try. Athens was crazy and a wonderful experience....but the islands are so much fun. I'll give some more details later!

Hope everyone is doing well!

What a difference a day makes...

Okay, so as predicted I'm feeling absolutely, %100 back to normal..yay! A little penicillon goes a long way.

However, with the four attempted bomb attacks and the police shooting on the tube this morning, people have been advised to stay out of central London if they can...which sorely cramps my plans for the day, but I'll have another weekend when I get back in London to see all the sites before I fly back home.

Thank you Nick and Tawcan for all of your wonderful sugesstions and advice. I'll see how many I can get to and take lots of pictures for you all.

I don't know if I'm the only one who has experienced this, but my internal voice now has an English accent. It's so odd. When I speak now, my Canadian accent sounds awkward in my head. Very strange. I experienced something similar after my French classes in my first year of University. I would think in French for hours afterwards. The characters in the novel I'm reading now have English accents as this normal or am I going crazy?

Hope everyone is well!

The good news is....

I don't have pink eye.

The bad news is I have strep throat.

No worries though. I'm used to being sick...compared to my mono last summer, this is like a light tickle in my

Anyways, once I get my hands on some antibiotics I'm sure everything will be jolly.

The weather is London today is absolutely sweltering, which I better get used to as I'm going to be in Greece in 4 days. sister with severe conjunctivitis and me with step throat...I think it's going to be positively lovely. he he he...let me be sacrcastic...I just cried in a foreign country, while trying to type an email to my parents, while in a dodgy internet cafe.

Don't worry, I'm actually having a great time...I just got a little emotional after being denied access to see a doctor a half hour ago...they keep such crazy hours here. I'm going to see my sister's doctor tomorrow fear. And luckily I (read: my dad) purchased health insurance for my trip...good thinking Pops!

If anyone has been to London or lives here and would like to suggest some sites to see, I'd love your suggestions (thanks for the email Nick!).

Mind the Gap!


So I'm totally knackered and I think I just got pink eye (my sister got it last night)...I'm looking very attractive in this huge interent cafe on Oxford Street. I was going to do a large group e-mail, but I figured that a blog entry would reach more people.

I was a machine all weekend, but it caught up to me on Monday...I slept in until 2:00 pm and only had enough energy to take a bus (a double decker) to Safeway to get some groceries. The weather was absolutely gorgeous on the weekend. I spent Saturday in Hyde Park and Notting Hill with my sisters, bought myself a cute toe ring and drank some PIMMS.

I've been doing some shopping on Oxford street today, but have been finding it hard to actually buy anything...besides food. Everything here is completely's crazy and I love it.

Well, I guess I'd better go investigate my eye..and perhaps take a trip to a pharmacy.

I hope you're all doing well!

I feel as though I should "come clean" about something...

I've been cheating for the past 2 months.

I'm so sorry, but the thrill was addictive. I've never felt so free and uncensored in my entire life. When you're given that freedom to be who you want to be and say what you want to's hard to go back to the life you once lived, you know?

But then I realised that this is where I belong.

That other "blog"?

She was just using me. It was all just a this, THIS is reality baby. And even though I may not be able to write about all the juicy details that is "Bryanna and the city's" life, it's nice to be back home where I belong.

I ditched that other blog. Told her what I thought of her....but still have her clinging on, you know, just in case I change my mind...or decide to take a spin in the fast lane again.

From now on, it's just you and me baby.


Oh ya....

I'm off to London and Greece for a month in two days...

Well, I guess it'll just be you and me when I get back.

Au revoir!
