Talking Tokyo in London - A Journey

What a wonderful 15 hours I spent in London. Arriving at Euston at 12pm I had 6 hours to spare and I spent them with a smile on my face being a tourist for the day. With arguably my most cherished moment being with Buddy the Macaw. Just look how happy we are together!

Shortly after my brief encounter with my feathered friend, I headed to the Scottish Business Network meeting in search for new sponsors and support in my quest to reach the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games. It was at the SLBN meeting where I had the privilege of delivering a motivational talk to all of the guests, whilst also discussing my personal battles and journey through life. I thoroughly enjoyed engaging with everyone and making new contacts.

Final thanks must go to those at the Scottish London Business Network that made all of this possible, and of course my new friend/photographer/fellow tourist Steve Turner who I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know.
