Fangirl, shy, writer, currently taking part in the RCIA process with the intention to convert to the Roman Catholic Church during Easter vigil 2014.

Also - deeply impressed and inspired by the Franciscan spirituality and trying to follow it in at least some aspects, with the desire to grow into it further.

Check out my faith blog for more on my unexpected journey (I talk about it here as well, but there you'll get the elaborate version, from the beginning to the end, including thoughts, pondering, doubts, fears, etc. etc.).

As for my main interests/fandoms: Sherlock Holmes in most incarnations, Person of Interest and Doctor Who (classic and new), creepy stuff and spies (fictional and real life espionage).

As well as some of my favourite actors: Jim Caviezel, Daniel Craig and Benedict Cumberbatch.

But I watch and read a lot of stuff and everything may creep in here at some point.

Click for complete (kinda) tag list!

Enjoy the pretty and welcome to the insanity party!

I knew I missed something in London!

Hoxton Street Monster Supplies exists.

This is the place I most regret not being able to make it to when I went to London in September.

Well this does seem worth a look.

I wish I had known about that store when I was in London last December…

Westminster Abbey, London

I spent such a long time inside the church, it was already dark when I got out and darkness + my camera doesn’t work very well together, so I only got these two photos. 

Personally, I still prefer St. Paul’s Cathedral, but Westminster Abbey is certainly a highly impressive church.

And back in Germany!

No musical (as we had originally planned), but instead:

  • Westminster Abbey
  • Pubs
  • Sherlock Holmes
  • Winter Wonderland (they had the best mulled wine *ever*) with fellow Irrelevant and resulting insanity. It was glorious! As for the rest, to quote her: ‘whatever happened in London will stay in London’ ;-))
  • Doctor Who shopping (I was dragged into Forbidden Planet. It was not my fault!)
  • the tube during the rush hour and:
  • Mass in St. Paul’s Cathedral this morning to conclude my stay in London! Such a stunning church! I liked it much more than Westminster Abbey, if I have to be honest. And they had a really beautiful, very moving service. My priest was right when he told me to try and see it. However, he also (jokingly) said that he didn’t hope I would feel the desire to follow the Anglican Church route then and there’s really no danger. It was a stunning Mass, but it didn’t move me in the same way the Catholic Church did right from the beginning, so I obviously really found the perfect new home for me :-) Still, it was an experience I wouldn’t like to miss. And Mass in such a church is quite unforgettable!

Overall, I had an all-around amazing time! (apart from the flight to London in combination with storm Xaver during the landing. That was not so amazing, but I survived the experience, fear of flying, nausea and everything :D)
