While helping a friend plan her London trip a few days ago (yes, I have become that go-to person in all things travel among my circle of friends. I guess it means I’m a good source of information?), I realized that I had yet to create a list of my favorite pubs in London, a [...]

The View From The Shard - in Photos

Posted on 26. Apr, 2013 by .

The Shard has been the subject of mixed opinions ever since its construction was approved: too high, too shiny, too much, too pointy. Others said it would revitalize the area, and bring in loads of visitors (and consequently muchos pesos). So when I was invited to visit The View from The Shard, needless I was [...]

I know I said I wasn’t writing about London anymore. But let’s be honest - I can’t help myself when it comes to this place. I was browsing through my (many) photo albums while planning my next visit in November. I’ve seen LOTS of things in London and yet I feel I’ve seen so little. [...]

As a city filled with some of the most exorbitant properties of the world, just like Paris, it doesn’t come as a surprise to anyone. London is, normally, a very expensive city to live and travel in. But there is hope for you, my frugal friends, and those who do not care to throw money [...]

One of the items in my ever-growing bucket list was to have a taste of the famous English afternoon tea for myself. Even after living in London for a year and visiting several times, I never actually got the opportunity to try it. So needless to say that when Radisson Blu Hotels offered me a [...]

Walking Along the Thames, a Photo Essay

While some people think that London isn’t a walkable city, I like to think the opposite. I do love a bus ride here and there, but I truly feel most comfortable on my own two feet, my earphones blasting Arctic Monkeys and my camera always ready to snap.  And during my last trip to London, [...]

There are very little things that I love more than strolling in London’s Hyde Park. Not only is it in my favorite city in the world (although there are some things to beware), but it also happens to be a very pretty park, so big and calm that it makes it actually hard to believe [...]

To say that I love London is a slight understatement, and definitely not a secret.  Throughout the last 4 years, I lived in the city for 10 months and visited 4 times, and took a massive amount of pictures of everything I liked about the city. The incoherent architecture. The quirky shops. The green spaces. The [...]

All major department stores double their creative efforts in trying to have the most original and beautiful Christmas window in all of London.

My Favorite Museums in London

Posted on 05. Oct, 2011 by .

Back in the days when I lived in London, I had two dilemmas: a lot of free time thanks to a non-traditional work schedule, but no funds to fill my schedule. I never was a museum person, but quickly I came to the realization that I didn’t have much of a choice if I wanted to spend [...]

After seeing how popular my last postcard was, I decided that a  London Zoo photo essay would be quite appropriate. And who doesn’t love a photo essay?
