Situated in Central London on the banks of the river Thames, To be honest I have had the pleasure of visiting the Tower three times now.
Again in the summer of my 24th year as an university student with my mother and again in the winter of 2015 at the ripe old age of 30 with my partner as I lived a dual life between Ireland and England, as soon as at the age of 19 when I lived in London.
And so it’s beautifully strange to come back to a monument that stands still in time when you’ve aged and changed very much since your last visit. With that said, that is what I adore about historical monuments, their presence in the modern world reminds us of our place in the universe. We inevitably become part of their narrative, they will continue to stand tall as we age.
