day 2316 – luzia

luzia was on my list to do since tickets came out in october. never bought any because the tickets were so expensive and i was in save up mode. it was my day to watch because i finally took the splurge, thankfully the discount code made the show more affordable. the show was incredible as always. the performers always have the coolest acrobatic skills and craziest skills

day 2283 – prp treatment

in naturopath clinic to do my first platelet rich plasma treatment. these prp treatments will burn a hole through my wallet, but my foot left me with no other option. it was very neat and very scary at the same time; watching the machine spin and separate my blood into parts and having it put back into me. getting what must have been twenty injections was a painful process. i had both feet done and could barely walk out of the office myself

day 2127 – afternoon tea

this would be my very first afternoon tea of my life and i must say it’s one expensive meal. i enjoyed the food, but it was a lot of pastry and sweets to take in for one sitting and i left feeling unusually bloated. the delicacy is way too much for my stomach and wallet to enjoy. the calories intake is defiitely something i can’t afford anymore often than once a year. i don’t know what constitutes a good afternoon tea, but i’m not one to look too deeply into it. starting to have traces of missing home

day 2126 – duck and waffle

this was suppose to be a super highly rated restaurant that requires months and months of advance booking. the view from the fortieth floor was nice, but aside from that, i personally thought everything was overpriced and overrated. the duck and waffle was minimally okay and i definitely wouldn’t pay eighteen pounds for it. on top of that, their service was one of the worst i’ve ever seen. i’d day i’m dissatisfied with the amount i paid for in return

day 2124 – kingscross station

made it to kingscross platform in the morning to chase the harry potter train. my friends and i waited in line for over an hour before it was our turn, but that time gave us a solid game plan on what pose we’d do and how to best capture the action shots. i’m happy with how my action shot came out. platform nine and three quarters was followed by a visit to postal museum. london has been expensive in every aspect; the currency makes it incredibly hard for anything to be cheap

day 2122 – iceland reykavik

first stop of my europe trip is a layover in iceland. twenty two hours to check into my airbnb and go for a crazy drive. made the trek out south to find the black sand beaches, caves and gigantic waterfalls. the most challenging part was trying to find things when all icelandic words are unprounceable. food there was so expensive even for the most basic and bland burger. i was so tired driving seven hours after a red eye flight, but had to suck it up and get back to the airbnb where my instant noodle awaits

day 2121 – icelandair

didn’t drive to work today because i’m leaving for the airport straight from the office. never taken iceland air before so i had no idea they were so stingy on allowances. so snacks or meals were provided even on a seven hour flight. icelandair also doesn’t include a check in luggage and charges an outrageous amount to have one checked. on top of that, the carry on size is smaller than other airlines. the seats were so cramped i would never recommend icelandair to anyone
