  • Out & About: London

     

    The ironic thing about London? It has a funny way of growing on you… (I’m embarrassed to say) I didn’t care for it much

    when my first visit consisted of 24/7 tourist traps. It wasn’t until I made the move for work and swirled into the culture

    that I fell in love with the city. The rich history, charming mews, brunching weekends and international friends…

    I never thought I could feel so in my element in a place that is not home.

     

     

    The pride I saw in my coworkers who shared their country’s traditions sparked such interest in me. Suddenly, tourist

    traps weren’t so unappealing, and I spent weekends busing around town or strolling through museums.

    As with any city, having everything in your backyard makes it an adventurer’s dream.

     

     

    A few things that became favorites:

    • Weekend brunch in Notting Hill (Farmgirl Cafe is darling… Eggbreak’s cornflake french toast is unreal)
    • Spontaneous tickets to West End shows (find cheap, last minute tickets here)
    • Columbia Road Flower Market (randomly ran into Emma Watson here… keep your eyes peeled! 😉 )
    • Churchill War Rooms (underground, beneath Westminster in Churchill’s actual bunkers. Super interesting!!)
    • Picnics in Hyde Park (grab a Roasted Salmon Salad @ Serpentine Bar & Kitchen)
    • Relaxing at Kew Gardens
    • Following the walks/adventures in this book
    • Taking my time browsing through Liberty (any Anthropologie lover’s d-r-e-a-m !!)
