London-the big smoke

30 April 2017

Okay so it was a long day, got the train to Windermere oh my god I'm really after throwing myself into the opposite direction out in the middle of nowhere πŸ˜‚ such fabulous views though!! Stayed here for a month working, went for a walk around the trails around the lake it was so so scenic it was just relaxing 😍 a lovely quaint area ideal for hiking and trail walks the scenery is just unreal

(Continued) sat by the fountain for a bit, crossed back over and walked under the road bridge and down to the Peter Pan statue, then continued to the Italian fountains which were absolutely beautiful and finally exited through the Marble Arch. It took a chunk from my day but it was an absolutely fabulous, relaxing day. I hopped on the bus to Piccadilly Circus and got the tube home. Okay last weekend I went down to Portsmouth, I got to see the seafront went to the casinos and chilled out with my brothers it's a fabulous place, got to go to the top of the tower 3 glass floors absolutely fabulous views 😍 okay so that's all for now london I'm not finished yet, I'll be back πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ‡¬πŸ‡§

Week 3/4: okay so this is my last week, I wandered as far as oxford street, everything is so intriguing the shops are amazing!! People are in a rush but I'm just taking my time, taking in everything I walked in through soho square and went to Nando's for the first time πŸ‘πŸ» then I got the tube home. So I decided I was going to take a day for myself I got the bus to Notting hill fab area, walked as far as Hyde park (Diana's playground entrance) I walked straight ahead towards Kensington palace, I do regret I didn't walk right down to it but I took a shortcut down along the lake and walked down to the Albert monument, since I've been here I haven't felt so at home, it's peaceful it's green there's no traffic no noise it's relaxing, I've spotted family's having picnics, a person sitting under a tree reading a book, people playing with their dogs and people like Me taking in the scenery πŸ“Έ I continued down and crossed the road and went to the Diana memorial fountain (continuation)...

Week 2: so we went to see Camden Lock; WOW!! 😍 this is the most amazing atmosphere I have experienced over here. I don't think it would be possible to be unhappy in anyway in this town, everyone is so happy and chilled out, there are some amazing markets and a delicious aroma from all the world food markets it's unbelievable. Another thing that stood out was the colours there's bright colours ever where! And of course if you wanted to stray away on your own for a little while you can take a stroll down along the canal which reminds me of Amsterdam there are little pedestrian bridges everywhere and it's quite and relaxing! A must see if your near London! On the way home we stopped off at kings cross station and absolutely made my day by queuing to take a photo at platform 9 and 3/4! Such an amazing memory as I'm a huuuuge fan of Harry Potter!! Anyway today we had a bbq out in the garden such a fabulous day the weather was unbelievable! Here's to another good week πŸ™ŒπŸΌ

Honestly getting on the plane was nerve wracking I haven't been on a plane since I was 12 πŸ˜“ a little bit panicky but then I fell asleep and I woke over the lights of London city 😍 landed and met my friend got the train (for the very first time) back to Wembley we had a couple of changes πŸš‡ then got the bus to Sudbury! And that brings us to now, need a nap now it's been a long day
