Weekend in London

This is the third time I have visited London and I still want to come back. It is such a fresh and exiting city you can never have too much of it.

| Notting Hill, Portobello Market

I love the feel of Notting Hill. At Portobello road you are overwhelmed with different colours and smells, from vegetable and fruit markets and multicultural food stands. There are picturesque antique shops, with clocks, old photography equipment, and forgotten teddy bears. Seeing familiar books, such as Beatrice Potter, Roald Dahl, Paddington Bear, and Harry Potter bring back so many childhood memories. Street buskers brighten up the atmosphere whether its with saxophone solos or adorable old ladies singing.

Hummingbird bakery (133 Portobello Rd, London W11 2DY) has beautifully decorated and yummy pastries, beware of sugar overdose!

Classic red velvet cupcake 

| Camden town

Camden is a really hipster, freaky and awesome place. All the stores stand out, with the typical decorations jumping out of the walls. There are a mix of different markets: the Camden lock area and the Stable markets, from jewellery, to hipster clothes, to trinkets you don't need. The freakiest shop in Camden is definitely Cyberdog. You can find anything alternative there, including the people who work there, amidst neon lights, electronic music and pole dancing girls.

We had a late lunch at Poppies and shared a large Cod Fish n Chips (16,90£).

| Shoreditch (East End London)

Homeslice Pizza: dinner XL Pizza (20£)

| Brick Lane

You have two bagel shops right next to each other, the "white shop" and the "red shop" I honestly don't know which one is the best I have tried both shops in different years and they were both good :)

| Westminster

I personally love going to see the Big Ben at night, because that is when  you can see it illuminated. Then I like to walk East alongside the Thames river and zigzag crossing over the many bridges until the Tower bridge.
