what I liked about london.

my few days in London with Jacopo went by quite fast - there wasn't enough time to visit all the places we would have liked to visit. London was far more big and far more chaotic than I had remembered it - still it held a peculiar feeling that intrigued me and inspired me once again.
8 photographs/8 things that I liked about London in no particular order:
✻ red brick victorian houses.
✻ the Tate Modern.
✻ the animals in St James's park.
✻ historical buildings such as the Tower of London.
✻ english gardens which reminded me of the countryside.
✻ the english weather.
✻ the unbelievable varieties of twinings herbal infusions.
✻ iconic buildings such as Big Ben and Tower Bridge.
next time I visit england I would rather go for a trip in the countryside - I certainly would not miss the enormous amount of people nor the complicated and suffocating underground trains system.

  9. Ahhh London you lovely lovely place, my very first experience is the heavy snow and my first time seeing snow too. So magical :) I love the buildings and we went to this mad expensive cake shop and they have high end tea parties which is so lovely. Tate modern was so good, i went and saw Rothko's exhibition there.
    I'll do anything to go back, really want to study design there. So glad you had a lovely time!

    But yeah the underground train station is so packed and crazy, it was also my first time exprienced being in a public train transport...so i was actually happy to be there. and oh god don't you just love their accents!! It's like music to my ears haha.

    Oh i've written way too much :x
