Chapter 2: London Calling

After many years of fantasising about faraway places, it was time for The Lavish Girl to enter the great unknown, the wondrous world. Her dreams were finally arriving. Little did she know that her first destination would soon be in reach. Armed with a timeworn map, gingham carrier and newly found expedition tickets, the curious girl was on a mission. “I want to find a big city full of beauty, charm and adventure to explore,” said The Lavish Girl.

That evening, The Lavish Girl began her search for the great city. She walked and walked, and her eyelids grew heavy. Enchanted by the red glow of a street lined with trees and black cabs, she walked further. “I see the red light! It is all around me. I’m in London!” said The Lavish Girl. And with burning excitement, she hopped onto a one-of-a-kind double-decker, big red bus to voyage the great London.
