Due to some creative travel planning while in Ibiza, we arrive in London just in time for me to miss my flight back to the states for my buddy Tommy's wedding in New Orleans... I have the options of getting to New Orleans on Saturday evening in time for the end of the party, heading back home, or sticking it out in London for a long weekend with Phin!  As if the past two weeks with Phin weren't insane enough, I decide to spend another four with the only guy who I've ever actually introduced as my brother... at some point along the way we decided it was just easier to do this as everyone inevitably asked the question anyways!

The next four days were an extension of the previous two weeks' debauchery, with brief tours of the city mixed between great nights out and plenty of precipitation.  We spent our days walking around Notting Hill, hanging out at the pool at the Shoreditch House, playing basketball, and catching up on sleep lost during the past few weeks and the nights out on the town.  Our nights were spent dancing at some of the best hot spots London has to offer, including Boujis and Kitts.  All pictures were courtesy of Phin, as I didn't have my camera after the Ibiza stint, and I somehow managed to shed yet another credit card over the weekend... thank gosh I was heading home as I was left without any at the end of this epic week-long party!

I was also able to meet up with my cousin Dan, his fiancÚ Audrey, and their baby boy Gabriel, who happened to be the happiest kid I've ever met!  I gave Gabriel the bib I had picked up in Melbourne and he helped me shed my fear of babies.  Dan and I got to do dinner and drinks one night and we all went for brunch with Audrey's father another morning!  Quite nice to see some family after an amazing 7 months that seemed like 7 years.

I even got to meet up with Cath and Asher, two of the three Australian girls I met in Thailand that were on their way to London at the time.  They came out with us for a big night on the town at Kitts and provided some great additions to the dance team comprised of Phin, myself and a few of his buddies that were absolutely awesome!

London was a ton of fun but by the time I got to the airport to head home, I was ready for a break... a loooong break to recover from the past 7 months of fun and games around the globe!
