Have you ever visited a place that turned out to be nothing like what you expected? For me that place has always been London. Don't get me wrong, I love many things about the city but the first time I went there almost 7 years ago I was baffled how different it was from what I was expecting. Let's just say I had a very Victorian perception of it 😂 Has this ever happened to you? #MegsWanderings #quicktraveltips . 📷 by @philipp_pley + edit by me ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #londoncity #sheisnotlost

    It’s happened to me so many times! I remember I had a very different idea of Mexico City before I came here for the first time

  • @where_is_she_now 3 days ago

    Yes! All the time. The places I have high expectations of are almost always different because I have built them up in my head so much. The destinations I have no expectations for usually blow me away!!

    Your hair is too amazing! Mine won’t grow past my clavicles 😭😭 And yes. Egypt was better than I imagined. But the first time I visited Palm Springs, I couldn’t wrap my head around the appeal. Still can’t 🙈
