LONDON TOWN

BEWARE! This post is very image heavy!

The second of many travel posts to come about my trip to London. Today I just want to share some scenery snaps I took during the trip and that Kim {you can check her out in photo five;)} took for me. In two weeks I will go into detail about my favorite places to go, to eat & what to see but for today I’ll just share my first impression with this London recap!

First I love the hustle and bustle of a city but hate it when you get stuck between tourists and boy is this city filled with tourists. But that didn’t stop us from enjoying our time for four days. In this case we were tourists ourselves of course. It showed because it was very confusing figuring out on which side we should be walking or that you have to look the other way than we’re accustomed to over here in the Netherlands. After a while you get used to it but it still felt like we were going against nature.

We didn’t have a big budget to go shopping but we did make plans to go crazy with food which resulted in many #foodgrams for me. I did end up buying two items that have been on my wish list because obviously I have no self-control. There are just so many good shops in one place, it’s hard to hold back.

Next to a little bit of shopping we mostly went on this trip to just chill and see all the landmarks that London has to offer. We went to Oxford street, Regent street {the & Other Stories store is pure perfection!}, Piccadilly circus, Covent Garden and found one of the hidden ears {which do exist even though the security didn’t know what I was talking about}, we visited Harrods & Selfridges {I tried on the Khaleda Rajab + Fahad Almarzouq x Linda Farrow sunnies — now I’m even more obsessed with them}, went on the London Eye with the most gorgeous view of the city, had tea and coffee on the Heron Tower and obviously got to take a picture on platform 9 3/4. We didn’t get to see everything but definitely the things that were high on our list.

On our last night we went out {me with my burned hand & Kim with apparently with an eye infection — long story!} in Camden Town. Had a fun night, got a little tipsy {no more double vodkas for me!} and felt like I died the next morning. Fortunately we ended up with a table at The Breakfast Club behind our hotel. This was our second try to get a table {apparently it’s mandatory to either show up really early or make reservations for breakfast — a really weird concept to us but normal in London}. If you ever get the chance you should definitely try out the pancakes & berries! Best breakfast I’ve ever had hands down.

I’ll definitely visit London again {I hope soon!} because I still have some places I want to see and hopefully next time I can go on a wild shopping spree.
