Hello everyone! How are you today? So, as I mentioned in my last Showcase Sunday post ages ago, I’ve been MIA in the past few days. The reason why I had to take a tiny little break is that I went to London last week and didn’t get back home until yesterday afternoon. We had a wonderful, wonderful time and I wish I could have stayed a bit longer but I’ve missed you guys and my blog terribly! *hugs laptop* So anyway, since some of you told me you’d like to see some photos of our trip, I decided to do a post about it and show you guys some of the places we visited. We stayed for 3 nights only so it was a veeeeeeery short visit this time but hey, it still might be interesting for non-EU people.
On Saturday we went to the Apollo to see Greg Davies (he’s a stand up comedian) on tour, which was absolutely hilarious and the atmosphere was fantastic! Do buy the DVD if you can, we laughed our socks off. On Sunday we went for a walk near Buckingham Palace and St James’s Park which was lovely – the weather was sooooo nice for mid-November and (surprisingly) there weren’t too many people around.
We also stopped by Chinatown and Waterstones Piccadilly on our way. This one is actually a five storey bookshop (!!!) which I don’t have a photo of but it’s heavenly. Thank goodness I had quite a small suitcase with me, otherwise I’d have bought a lot more books than I actually ended up with. (I’ll talk about them in more detail in this weekend’s Showcase Sunday)
Oh yes. And we did a bit of shopping in Trocadero. Er……. yes.
In the evening we checked out the Oxford Street Christmas lights – it was pretty crowded as usual but the lights look great. The purple one was my favourite!
On Monday we went to King’s Cross and to check out Platform 9 ¾ á la Harry Potter. It’s funny because we’ve been to King’s Cross before and we both love Harry Potter but we never actually went to see Platform 9 ¾ before. Then we went for a walk in the St Paul’s Cathedral / Bank area.
In the evening we were trying to find this Agatha Christie statue which has been unveiled the day before that but it started to rain and we had to give up after a while. Leicester Square was lovely with the Christmas lights on, though. Then we went to see the Southbank Christmas Market (with a cup of hot chocolate in our hands) which opened just a few days before we arrived. It wasn’t as busy as we thought it would be but I guess it’s because it’s only November and the weather was pretty bad by the time we got there.
Soooo, that was it. We had so much fun and it was really nice to be back in London, even for just a few days.
How’d your week go? What did I miss? Massive hugs to everyone and talk to you soon! x
