[:en]Leaving London, but I’ll be right back[:sv]Lämnar London en liten stund[:]

Fashion, Travel

[:en]The last couple of days have been amazing, hectic and truly wonderful. I’ve got to meet a bunch of people that in one way or another are connected to my blog and I’ve made both new friends and business partners, but who’s to say the two cannot be combined? I’m saying they can, as everyone (not exaggerating here) I met were truly wonderful. One of the most wonderful meetings took place in South Kensington where these picture (and many more) were taken.

London is basically known for two things: Shopping and culture (among numerous other things of course). The shopping took a peculiar turn as I am ashamed to admit I hadn’t discovered Pull & Bear before and as they had great stuff which was also CHEAP I uh, might have bought the entire content of the store, more or less. I also did some shopping at Louis Vuitton, but thank God I didn’t go bananas in there although I will be living on noodles in a cup for the coming month, haha.

When it comes to culture I’ve already said I’m a huge fan of Tate Modern, but I can repeat that forever. Tate Modern is one of the best museums in the world for modern and contemporary art and I’m blessed to be able to visit it as often as I do. This visit happened to coincide with the 350-year commemoration of the great fire in 1666 (you know, where the song “London Bridge is falling down” dates from) which basically destroyed all of London. They had a re-enactment of the fire right after I left, so I missed that, but I got to be part of an almost spiritual experience when I attended the fire sculpture park along the river entrance to Tate Modern. It was approx 10 PM and raining a bit (I was in London after all) and there were these amazing sculptures, creations and pieces of art with the common denominator: Fire. As I’m a pyromaniac I basically had an orgasm right there. It was like stepping into another world for a while and during 30 minutes I was in the land of fairytales. And no peeps, I hadn’t been doing drugs, I just get high on emotion from time to time.

Writing this I’m sitting in the Lufthansa Senators Lounge at Heathrow and uh, well, it’s very… German. I mean the only thing I miss in here is a sturdy woman named Helga who’d give me a reprimand as soon as I make a wrong move. Not that I ever make wrong moves. This week is going to be all about Stockholm though and I’m overjoyed about going home to my city. It’s been way too long since I was home last. I’ll tell you all about Stockholm some other time and will probably tell you more about London as well as this was just a brief summary of what I’ve been up to. Until then, have a great week!

Har knutit nya kontakter både på ett mer personligt plan samt rent yrkesmässigt. I de flesta fall går dessa två faktiskt att förena. Ett av de underbaraste mötena ägde rum i Kensington där bilderna till detta inlägg togs.

Sedan är det ju allmänt känt att London är en stad för kultur och shopping så jag ägnade mig en del åt både och. Jag var chockad över att jag inte känt till Pull & Bear sedan tidigare och storhandlade i denna prisvärda kedja. Sedan kan jag inte säga att jag storhandlade på LV, men eh, ja, det blir nudlar ett tag framöver nu.

Vad kommer till kultur kretsade mycket kring 350-jubileet (eller snarare minnet) av den för London så katastrofala branden 1666 och det fanns en hel del evenemang och framförallt konstinstallationer där jag exempelvis igår kväll fick uppleva något nästintill magiskt. Det duggregnade och var mörkt. Jag anländer till Tate Modern och ser hur hela sidan av museet är kantat med eldskulpturer av olika slag, den ena mer spektakulär än den andra. Till saken hör att jag är pyroman och fick halvt orgasm på plats av den magiska och mystiska stämningen som ägde rum runt Tate. Jag var inte den enda dock. Alla runtomkring var lika fascinerade av de helt fantastiska konstverken som dock inte gör sig på bild, så ni får helt enkelt fantisera till hur det var. Kommer nog att skriva av mig mer om London de närmaste dagarna, men vi börjar här. Nu sitter jag i Lufthansas Senator Lounge på Heathrow och tja… det är väldigt… Tyskt. Det enda som saknas är typ Helga som kommer och drämmer till mig med något för att jag inte har lagt servetten i knät.

    You look amazing, as always, Thomas! I love your striped top and it looks so good paired with the white jeans and sneakers, so fresh and classy! I also love your LV luggage! Hey, I’ve been tempted myself to do a little more than a splurge there, too, but have contained myself out of no other choice than that I’d have to eat, haha. I can’t wait for you share more about your time spent in London, as well as Stockholm! I’m sure it’s going to bring back some awesome memories! Cheers to an amazing week!

    XO,

      And yeah, some times you have to prioritize things such as… well, eating is quite crucial. Haha. I’ll be blogging about all these things soon enough as it’s been an amazing week so far. Hope yours is gonna be awesome too!
