Christmas in London
Good morning you all, hope you're having a great week so far! Mine is pretty packed, I'm working on my last university project, some new blog posts and I'm also painting my boyfriend's apartment on Mallorca so I got a lot to do, haha. I wanna publish all the London posts before Christmas so don't be surprised if you hear from me again soon.
Today's post is about our second day in London. Since our hostel was close to the Tower Bridge we decided to take a walk there in the morning to take advantage of the great weather. We didn't stay too long though because my sister and I have already seen the bridge and we also wanted to check out some other areas of London.
After crossing the Tower Bridge and stopping at the Tower of London for a while we took the underground to Notting Hill. I love that area because of all its colorful houses and cute shops and cafés. We took a stroll and went for a coffee at Farm Girl Cafe, a pretty place that serves all kinds of organic and vegan food. I had a rose latte, coffee infused with rose water, something I had never tried before. I personally liked it but it's surely not everyone's taste. We also ordered two pieces of vegan cake, a chocolate and rasperry almond cake, which we loved! After spending about an hour at the cozy café we walked down Portobello Road. My favorite stores there are definitely the Hummingbird Bakery, Portobello Market and the cute Biscuiteers Boutique and Icing Cafe where you can find all kinds of beautifully decorated cookies and also a cozy café.
After spending a few hours in Notting Hill we decided to check out the Christmas decoration in the area around Regent Street. We walked down Carnaby Street, Oxford Street and Regent Street down to the Piccadilly Circus. I loved all the Christmas lights, everything looked so glamorous and cozy. London is a wonderful city during the Christmas season, well, it's always a beautiful city. We ended the day with a chai latte at Trafalgar Square before we went back to our hostel. Hope you like the photos, xo
