London – Chester – Manchester

OK, super important question here: ARE YOU A FAN OF BTS? If you are, then hey, we’re ‘ARMY’ companions and if not and you’ve no idea what I’m talking about and that’s OK cause eventually, you’ll know (said in a non-creepy way).

So, BTS recently had their ‘Love Yourself’ world tour and I went over to London to see them!!! This was my fifth time but it never gets old. Going over for the day and exploring alone made me realise that London is HUGE. But anyway, here are some photos from my trip.

Only meant for night

It was a full moon the other night and somewhere between imagining what it’d be like to go there and thinking I should go to sleep, I wondered, “what are the things we can only see during the night?” I mean, sometimes we can see the moon in the early hours of the morning but for the full, cinematic effect, it should be seen at night; only then can you marvel in it’s beauty and see just how far its light reaches.

Now,  almost three years later, here I am again. Not so wide-eyed or in Tokyo but still counting; only this time, in reverse.

I’ve always known that I should’ve recorded my journey here as I went along but I felt unmotivated and unsatisfied with my blog (previous one). I can’t go back though so my only consolation is that with the power of retrospect, I can look back on my time here with insight and appreciation rather than playing catch-up.

I can’t tell exactly how this blog is going to take form but for now, let’s just say that as my time in Japan comes to an end, I’ll be looking to the beginning.
