Online To Offline Friendships

Dvora Photography London
This past trip to London has been one of the most satisfying trips. I was able to achieve everything I wanted to, meet everyone I wanted to, and check out all the places I had on my list. It was a good mix of revisiting the old and known and experiencing the new and unknown. 

One of the most memorable things from the trip was meeting Dvora. I have known her (through blogging) for over six years or so. For the last couple of years I have only been in touch with her only through Instagram but as soon as my trip was finalized I reached out to her. We planned to meet for brunch at Thomas' Cafe

Brunch at Thomas' Cafe

I have met my fair share of people through the web. It is always fifty percent excitement and fifty percent hesitation, when meeting someone from the Internet. You never really know, y'know, who they might turn out to be? But meeting Dvora was like meeting an old friend. I felt I had known her for a long time. There were no awkward silences, not a moment of irresoluteness. Conversation just flew smoothly and there was a genuine connection. This is exactly why I love blogging and continue to blog. I have said this before, and I repeat myself - Thanks to blogging, I have found my tribe! They all might not be one single location but then that's what makes my travels even more exciting. I get a chance to meet (and make) friends no matter where I go. 

Thank you for shooting me, Dvora!
