  • My trip to London was with a group of 14 people for a Study Abroad. When it comes to my travels I am very adventurous and I like to go on adventures that others may not, so when I found out that in the city of London they had an elephant parade I decided to jump on board. Nearly 250 Elephant statues were placed throughout London and by looking for these elephants I could see some sights that other tourists may never see.

    This particular night was a special one as almost everyone in the group was gone, off on their own adventure and it suddenly began to downpour. I have always loved the rain so I quickly headed out into the rain and went searching for my next elephant, the nearby blue one pictured here. The best thing about downpours is you meet very quickly the other Rainiacs. Those people who find the rain to be a perfect haven from the rest of the world. I danced for about ten minutes with two girls dressed in pixie attire, allowing the rain to completely wash us away before I went on my merry way. Near the elephant I found a couple who weren't in a hurry to escape the rain and we gave each other knowing glances.

    I arrived at the elephant took my picture, I believe at this point I had reached about 130 elephants and I walked home as the rain began to let up. Soaked completely head to toe and satisfied head to toe.
