London Town

The Hardy’s went to London for 8 days and what an incredible time it was. From rush hour subway surfing to non stop walking, we managed to get around a fair amount. Visits to places like St Paul’s Cathedral, Leicester Square, Hyde Park, Camden and Westminster went down and were thoroughly enjoyed by us scallywag South Africans. Other events like the intimate rock ‘n roll gig where we and some Durban mates party’d with Zulu Winter and the phenomenal Tame Impala concert at the Hammersmith Apollo were like the cherry on top of our trip. One thing we discovered about travelling is that ideally, one must try enjoy it with other people. Having said that, thanks to the Huttons for having us in your home, the Allens, Katie and James for the jols and the Hills for the hang-outs! Being rather unseasoned travelers (Matt and I), we had to quickly learn to stand on the right hand side of the escalator and speed walk in order to keep up with the unusually fast pace of London and its rushing people. That in its self was quite an experience. We were sad to leave however grateful to rest our legs for what felt like the first time in days on our 10 hour flight to LAX. (Post from Matt to follow on his thoughts about our arrival in California)

We managed to film quite a bit in London and we used this footage to make a quickie video. Click this link to watch it: https://vimeo.com/69356626
