London, oh my dear London!


Many of you know about my love for the UK, hell it even stands in my description box. *gg* So I was more than happy when my husband surprised me with a short trip to London.

We went this weekend and I loved it. I think about making a "What to do" and "Tips for London" post, by now I've been often enough. *gg*

A few things that haven't changed. I still heard more French than English, Asian tourists are everywhere and my beautiful Big Ben is as lovely as ever. I was so happy to see him again, I couldn't stop smiling.

Of course we went through all sorts of shops, but with the exception of The British Museum, we didn't go anywhere touristy. Here some photos, we didn't take that many.







My husband started to drink tea a while back, so we simply had to pay the original and first Twinings store a visit.




Near Big Ben we found this little diner called "herman ze german". It's obviously founded by a German and you can get Currywurst and Brezels there. 

I loved the little place. I didn't get anything, but my husband loved his sausage and I find the idea sooo cute. The whole logo and look of the store and the German products. I almost bought a shirt. lol

I was a bit sad though that nobody there was actually able to speak German. *g* At least not in this shift. 






It was a great, but exhausting wekend, we walked around a LOT. *g* The short visit eased my longing for this country, but there's only one place who can really do that. Scotland!

I can't wait to go there again. I hope I'll see the Highlands soon, Since I started watching Outlander it only got worse. *gg* My plan is to be there next summer again.

I'm gonna show you what I bought there in my next post. :-) A lot of gorgeous stuff. One sneak peek and my favourite item:


What's your favourite part in this world??

Love,
Valerie

I'm pretty sure your husband always loves his sausage! xD
(I'll go sit in the corner now.)

Very jealous of the brushes. I too have a few of them and I love them. ^^

Oh, and my favourite part of the world? It's hard to say. I've been in Southeast Asia twice and it was freaking amazing. I've also been to London last year and I loved it. My favourite city so far. But really, everywhere is beautiful. :)
