Destination: London, Banksy

London is not complete without Banksy. ...  His art literally plastered around this fabulous and iconic city, formerly thought to be vandalism and now praised for by millions, as art. Some of his art is known to be dark, some political. But he won my heart over (and millions more) with his world famous "London Banksy Girl and Balloon" art. Oh I wish I had found that one in Tottenham or on the Southbank or Hackney or one of the places it has been spotted. Alas I did not, but I found these gems while I was discovering different neighborhoods racing through this urban and massive city, and with the help of a few Londoners. London is a fabulous and stunning city! There are not enough pictures sometimes to share how beautiful a place can be. The art, the people, the place itself.  I feel so lucky and am so thrilled to have visited. I can't wait to visit again. And for now, Banksy you rock!

Aviv, such a pleasure to meet you, great day at Portabello Market, London. Notting Hill was every bit as quaint and colorful as you would expect. The streets are narrow, the buildings are cozied up to one another each one full of character and charm. It's full of history and wear but still bright with color. Really beautiful. Thank you London for a great first visit, hope to be back soon!

You can not meet this couple and not think Peter Pan.  Wendy fits the bill and well, Jon is her other half, I swear I thought I heard him singing "You can fly, you can fly you can fly!" I loved meeting you and spending the day with you. And as Peter Pan said, “Second star to the right and straight on 'til morning.”  I wish you the very best, all my love, jess _MG_1450_wendy_09






Oh the socks Jon!



New York!

New York is the Big Apple, the city that never sleeps the center of the world ... the list goes on and on. New York is really another world. It's like a rush and it's never over. The views and the activities ... the food and the neighborhoods, they really are endless. You could seriously have a job as a tourist and your work would never be complete. (We have to figure out the pay scale on that though.) Where does someone start when they are taking pictures? Or is the question, when do they put the camera down ....? laughing ... Well, that was me in the last week. And every second of it was memorable. And yeah, I'd return ... in a new york minute!!
