Apartment hunting!

Now that I am done with all my traveling, time for me to go apartment hunting! Wish me luck! - and I know most of you actually will wish me luck, since all your hopes are on me finding a sweet place where you can all come and crash :D

So you won't seemany pictures of monuments and lansdcapes from my trip to Lisbo since I spent 90% of my time in meetings and conference rooms....but nonetheless had a hell of a time with my account team from Belgium :D Was also able to enjoy 1 hour of sun at each lunch breaks. Which equals two hours of sun in two days. More than I've enjoyed so far this summer in Europe! - Seattle people, I just hate you and your heat wave :D

Jean-Pierre qui travaille, mais oui!

Who would have though? See, miracles do happen afterall. Although. I have to say that I still have my doubts....I THINK he may just have been pretending for the sake of the picture. Oh well, regardless, nice try Jean-Pierre :D

Quelle tenacite a l'effort tout de meme ;)

Sing along in the Tube :)

Taking public transportation in London was quite an experience all around, my friends, from the not so good of taking bus 25 at 3:00 am so today's concert in the Tube - the tube, for those of you who don't know, is London's metro. I was riding along, on my way to Heathrow airport, with my suitcase, had just managed to find a seat, when a man came in with the guitar and said "Sorry everybody that I am late for the concert. Now we can finally get started! we're gonna have some fun together this evening!" and starting playing all sort of classics, like "Brown-eyed girl" etc. My favorite part when was he decided to sing Jewel's "leaving on a jet plane", dedicated to all of us since we were on our way to the airport. Just brilliant:D Not much, but it brightened my day.

God Save the Audrey

oh yes I really need to be saved!!!! I swear I was almost getting used to people driving on the left side, then went to Belgium for a week and it screwed up all of my efforts. Oh and those London drivers, they're pretty fast too let me tell you :) then going to Portugal, and people on the right side....and then Dublin! Geeeese they really want me killed :D

So afterall, I did end up extending my stay, and oooh am so not regretting it! More time spent with my coworkers - they are OK folks ;) But B you get all of the hate, out of everybody;) :D. And then I was able to spend the weekend with Celinette :) We went shopping in the city center. We also went to the Camden area, and I absolutely LOVED it! Boths and little shops one after another, original cloths, jewels and all sorts of random thingsm , any type of cheap food you may want, colors, people, commotion, fun....just amazing! If any of you ever comes to London, make sure you take some time to take the Northern line and hang around Camden :)

Look up, it's red and beautiful :)

In Camden. The red prisms were completely stunning with the sunshine passing through them!

Agent 0707, au rapport!

Yes, Maud, that's you I am talking about :) Even though I talked to you on your birthday, I still wanted to wish a JOYEEUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUX ANNNIIIIIIIIIIIIVERSAIRE on here :) xoxo

Dinner fun!

Did you want to hear Tracey in her Donald Duck version? Have always dreamed to see Andy do his shopping cart dance???? Then you should have come out with all of the EMEA DMO team last week :) My coworkers (London+Dublin) and I went out to dinner last Tuesday and had a blast. Here are some pics.....also have an awesome video of Tracey's performance, but have promised not to share it...well, at least for now :D

Enough time spent in airplanes and airports! Just got to London today, and am already in love with this city! Just a feeling about it, something I felt walking in the small streets of the city center, or by the Thames river. The city is just vibrant, so much energy, but at the same time there is also something soothing about it. Of course, right now you can definitely feel the tension due to the latest bombings, and it is hard to miss the many cops and army men patrolling the streets of the city, or the random searches of vehicles. Regardless, I am just amazed with this city. Maybe I will extend my stay by a a few days....- after all, I do have to go through London on my way to Lisbon this weekend. Just a thought ;) This way it would also give me more time to see my high school friend Celine, who moved to London in January :)Qu'on fasse un peu la fete, ma Celinette :)
