Traveling is always such fun, but whenever I have the chance to spend quality time with a very dear friend, it all becomes even more special.
Anne and I go a few years back. We met in Toronto and then she moved to England, her home country.
A bit over 4 years ago she had Owen, a lovely little boy I only saw in photographs. Finally meeting him this year was thrilling. We spent a lovely time together in London and then Yorkshire, I got to enjoy his sweet little spirit, we did a lot of fantastic things. One of my favorite activities was the visit to the incredible Kirkstall Abbey (Leeds), a great example of a medieval Cistercian abbey in Britain. Owen loved it there and he ran around the beautiful old walls exploring every corner, playing in the snow and pretending to be the brave defending knight of a plastic, strategically placed kids’ castle.
I still smile to myself looking at the photographs we took, they bring back incredible memories.
I hope to visit again very soon. M
