Hi friends! This will be the last recap of the trip — thank you for reading, I have loved sharing the adventure. Our last few days in London were busy ones. The sun was finally shining so we really made the most of the weather.
First, we went up The Shard for some amazing views of the city.
We then headed to Borough Market for lunch but did not realize it was closed January 1st and 2nd so there were not many vendors open. When it is in full force, Borough is an awesome food market filled with anything and everything your tummy desires. I ended up having a delicious bowl of carrot and coriander soup.
We continued to walk along The Embankment — the walkway along the Thames River.
Cheerio London Eye and Big Ben!
Dinner consisted of take-away from Harrods. The food halls at this world famous store are really incredible and if you know where to go, very reasonable. I made my own salad and had an almond croissant for dessert. All about balance :)
The next day we went for brunch at Granger & Co in Notting Hill. I felt pancake deprived over the past few weeks so I knew what I was getting straight away: ricotta hot cakes with banana and honeycomb butter. I skipped the butter but the ‘cakes didn’t need it… so delish!
After brunch we strolled through Hyde Park and then headed to the Tate Modern. I do like museums but I don’t think I am much of a modern art fan. It sometimes looks like my five year old cousin made it. I hope that’s not offensive…
But I did like this piece quite a lot.
We also saw some sights like, St. Paul’s Cathedral
and Millenium Bridge. Fellow Harry Potter fans: recognize this bridge?
After the museum and walking we enjoyed an oh-so-typical English event: High Tea. Tea (duh), finger sandwiches, pastries and scones (<– my fave).
Before heading to the airport we went to Chelsea for breakfast at the Blue Bird Cafe. (Arman, Davida… I know you know the significance of this spot). To be honest the food was a bit disappointing but I just went with the fruit plate.
Before heading to the airport we made one final stop for one final goodie.
Harrods. Chocolate scone. Need I say more?
And that wraps up this wonderful trip. Phew. Traveling is exhausting. Wonderful. But exhausting. Oh and if these past few weeks were not hectic enough… I’m off to Boston this afternoon! But I’m certainly not complaining :)
Hope you have a great weekend friends.
Questions of the day…
What are you up to this weekend?
