From Leeds to London!

Canada vs Italy at the RWC and a walking tour of London

My first rugby world cup game was amazing. I was given roaming status as a photographer which meant I wasn't stuck in a fixed position and could walk around, get in the stands, WALK ON THE FIELD, AHHH, I HAD SO MUCH FUN.

In the last few minutes of the game a very brave man... dressed as a bear, ran onto the field and was shortly after tackled and escorted out by security.

The official RWC photographer took me under his wing and onto the field. ONTO THE FIELD!!

Off to the train station right after the game only to run into friends from home :D

Walked into a pub to wait for my train and was bought drinks because "You're from Canada? That was a good match, let me buy you a pint." Thanks team Canada!

Now I'm in London with Ritu who has generously let me stay at her place and has been cooking me breakfast, lunch and dinner :D Today we went on a walking tour and London is beautiful.
