Sister Trip to London

Hello there, everyone! Today I have a new post for you about another exciting weekend trip I went on this past year. Two months ago, in November, my sisters and I went to London, one of my favorite cities in Europe and the whole world. I'm a huge London fan, it's so diverse and laid-back and at the same time elegant and sophisticated. I always enjoy coming to this city to explore new things and have visited it at least three times in the last few years (check out my other London posts here).

In November my older sister and I took our little sister with us for the first time. And she loved London as much as we do. While my sisters stayed from Thursday to Sunday I only had one entire day in the city because of work. But we surely made the best of it!

Sister Trip to London

We started our day in Notting Hill and on Portobello Road, which were crazily crowded that day. Later we headed back to our home in Shoreditch for lunch and spent the rest of the afternoon strolling our neighborhood. On my previous trips to London I never had enough time to explore Shoreditch so I was happy that we stayed there. I adore this neighborhood, there are so many cool shops, bars and restaurants (and also the greatest Bagel shop). The area reminds me a lot of Williamsburg in Brooklyn with all these hipsters, vintage stores and street art. London always makes me miss New York City somehow. Afterwards we had a coffee, well a yummy golden milk for me, at Exmouth Coffee Company, a super cozy café that makes great matcha and kurkuma lattes. My older sister booked us tickets for Sky Garden to see the sun set over London so we headed there around 4pm. I absolutely loved this place. Again, this rooftop reminded me a lot of the New Yorker rooftops with their stunning city views. From Sky Garden you can admire all parts and sights of London including the Tower Bridge, the Shard and St. Paul's Cathedral. After sunset we took the tube to Oxford and Carnaby Street where we just went for a walk admiring all the beautiful Christmas decoration and exploring some cool shops. For dinner we had some simple Mexican food at Chipotle. What can I say, we just miss Chipotle on Mallorca! It was a perfect end to our fun and exciting sister trip (the second one this year after Valencia).

I love traveling with my sisters and weekend trips are a perfect option to get away and disconnect for a while with friends or family. Have you been on any weekend trips this past year? Let me know, xo
