TRAVEL: A QUICK GUIDE TO LONDON
18th August 2013
I think I’ve already mentioned how great it was to be back in London a little while ago, but I guess it was more than just great – it was surreal. Surreal because life was so different when I left, because I’ve learnt so much (trial and error and all that) in the meantime, but mainly because I’d forgotten how much I loved cold-busy-stinky-tube-air-on-your-face London. Rather than write a long list of places you should visit, I thought I would show you instead. Feast your eyes on our itinerary (literally – my boyfriend designs restaurants so it’s usually a culinary tour more than anything else!).
In London we:
Stopped over at Liberty.
Discovered breakfasts at Dishoom, new favourite!
Was intrigued by the Damien Hirst at Tramshed.

Wore my travel essentials to death.
