Summer Wanders In Londonland

We just got back from a trip to the UK and managed to pack in a heap of things including a Greek wedding, glamping and of course a few days in good old Londonland.

Going to London as a tourist is pretty fun, you get to enjoy the best bits of the city and wander around the streets without running for tubes and battling crowds on your lunch break..

We met at Waterloo station under the clock (would have been far more romantic if it wasn't blowing a gale outside!) and walked up the south-bank which is always nice whatever the weather... We visited the Tate Modern, a one of my favourite museums showcasing a variety of artists from across the world. Too big to do in one day, we focused on surrealism and Pop Art, I have always loved the work of Andy Warhol.

Amazing pie from Pieminister, really delicious.... and what a fun name too!

The next day was spent Eastside, around Liverpool street and Brick lane.. this area always amazes me. I love how old and new overlap each other. Suits and hipsters share the streets and the hustle bustle of the city hums along to a beat.

It was a stunner of a day and as the sun took it's sweet time going down the crowds were spilling out of pubs onto streets and filling sun spots in rooftop eateries.. we discovered a fun little spot called BOXPARK  which hosts cool arty shops, upcoming designers and the top floor is food and drinks.. well worth a visit!

I always find the nook crannies have the best street art and they looked so great in the afternoon sun.

I am back in the hot and humid KL... feeling rather jet lagged. It is nice to be back in our home but always sad saying bye.

Have a fab weekend!
