With just a few more days in London, not a minute is wasted. Tonight a play in Trafalgar Square, a morning tube ride to the Olympic Park, and a afternoon stopping into Manolo Blahnik’s flagship store in Chelsea and perhaps a bit of shopping and choosing a most lovely tea cup to bring home.
Above is a collection of images from where I have had the fortunate opportunity to stay while in London. With a quiet private garden to escape to behind the flat to write in my daily journal and a winding staircase to the third floor where we gladly put our feet up at the end of each day, I am feeling rather spoiled. Nearby pubs – Warrington and The Prince Alfred – have been a treat in the evenings to grab a pint of beer or a lovely white wine while the Olympics are live and thoroughly enjoyed by all patrons.
Needless to say, London has welcomed the many tourists and Olympic sightseers with open arms, and I have certainly placed it on my “must-return-to” list of places around the world.
~ Returning to our vacation flat in Maide Vale in central London after a long day in the sun walking through Covent Garden, Regent’s Park and Soho. Exhausted, but exhilarated. And yes, I decided to forgo the comfortable walking shoes for style. I couldn’t help myself. No regrets.~
