This was my second visit to London. The first time was in 2014 when I went there myself and met my dad later part of our journey. I was really impressed by my courage (lol) I never thought I can make it by travelling alone. I have experienced so much while travelling all by myself, even though is just a few days. This is also the reason why I am so addicted to travelling. I love to wake up in different city, looking at different views, taste different cuisine and listen to different language !
I went there for a short while only as I have dinner plan with Aunt Jenny. But is better than not visiting right. I bought souvenirs i'e the typical fridge magnet there. Its a good place to shop if you are finding souvenirs but make sure you shop a few of the shops as the price might be variant and you can find really cheap deals.
Tips: the cheapest deals tend to be at the end of the streets.
Snap picture with Mad Hatter and Alice XD
Look at these gorgeous flower by the roadside of Hendon Central.
Big Ben & The House of Parliament
Thanks to the sunny day and blue sky so I can get the perfect shots. Still remember the first time I went there, it was a rainy day and all my pictures turned out to be grey and moody.
The London Eye
St Paul Cathedral
I always have a huge thing for Victorian architectures.
Tips: Remember to visit PAUL Bakery, they have wide range of food from savory to dessert! I love their hot chocolate soooo much ! I'm not a fan of chocolate drink but I MUST admit that they serve the best so far. Besides, don't miss their macaroons and e-clair.
The Millennium Bridge
Walking down the millennium bridge (1'o clock from St Paul Cathedral), you can have a breath-taking view on St Paul Cathedral as well as tower bridge and the shard!
Besides, when you reach the opposite of the bank, do visit Borough Market and perhaps have a cup of Monmouth coffee (They claimed it the best brew coffee in London).
FYI Tower bridge is not London bridge though. So many people kept on confuse it by saying it as London bridge.
Try to do research on when the bridge will be lifting so you can watch it and take amazing photos.
Not many know this place but I guarantee you this is definitely worth if you are planning to go for night view.
Notting Hill & Portobello Market
I went there because of the colourful houses ! You got to see them, there are absolutely gorgeous and every door of the houses is so "instagrammable" !
Besides, you can also stroll around Portobello Market. There are so many antique shops, cafes, souvenir shops etc.
Here are pictures of my lovely friends aka housemates aka roommates.
My takeaway lunch before walking to Kensington Palace which is not far away from Notting Hill.
Itsu Japanese Food. YUMS
Whenever we go, wefie is definitely a MUST. But I'm glad we did as all of these pictures turned out to be the thing I can treasure.
I love taking photos of swan ! "Elegant" is definitely a word that I can describe them.
On our way to British Museum, there are many majestic Victorian architecture that will worth your time to slow down your steps.
If you plan to do some shopping haul, definitely reserve a day for it ! There are so many shops here from Nike to Topshop, Forever 21!!!
Burger & Lobster
GAAAAWD its heaven here! The lobster is so scrumptious and every single bite of its flesh is so juicy ! P.S use your hand to eat to enjoy the BEST :P. Besides, dont forget to order their beef burger, my friend who do not take beef even praise for its taste.
Bon Appetite ~
Covent Garden - Venchi
My Birthday threat - Gelato !!! (how thoughtful are my friends)
The pistachio and chocolate is the best match EVER. I don't usually take chocolate ice-cream as it usually will end up being too sweet.
That's all for today.
Sending love from me to you.
