Last weekend I jetted off to London for the day. This time, my mom accompanied me on a sun-drenched day in the UK capital. In the morning we visited the Borough Market, a place we both loved, so do expect a dedicated blog post in the future. I will already mention that we witnessed the longest line for coffee ever at Monmouth Coffee. This fact does make it rather tempting to wait in line next time I’m in London, something I didn’t do this time around.
After a beautiful walk along the banks of the Thames, a quick stop at the Tate Modern, we strolled over the Millennium Bridge for a nice but windy walk. Of course, a trip to London wouldn’t be complete without some shopping, so we did just that in the afternoon.
This time we travelled from Lille, France (my dad drove us there), so we were in London by 9am! The train ride lasted only an hour and a half and we didn’t have the hassle of traveling to Brussels first. If you live near Lille, I do recommend starting your journey there, although the Eurostar terminal at Bruxelles Midi is better equipped.
Now, this won’t be the last you see of London here, as I’m heading there again by the end of the week. My friends and I will be staying there for three days and are due to see Miranda perform at the O2 Arena on Saturday night. I’m counting down the days as we speak!
