267. London | pain perdu

Cupcakes at Harrods during the Queen's Jubilee! In the spirit of the London 2012 Olympics starting today, I thought I'd make another vacation post of this city. It's already been 2 months since I was here..I feel so nostalgic already.
AND I also realized it's been 4 years since I've been living at 1KW. I was watching the opening ceremony earlier when I suddenly remembered I moved here during the 2008 Olympics, as I spent my first couple weeks watching it everyday. These past four years could not have flown by more quickly. I wonder where I'll be in another 4 years' time..

I miss London.










Sanderson Hotel for Mad Hatter's Afternoon Tea


Eating a pain perdu while waiting for my flight to Copenhagen at Gatwick Airport's Cafe Rouge at 4am. My flight was at 7am - don't ask why I decided to book it so early. My table was beside a huge window so I sat there eating breakfast, watching the sunrise and watching planes take off/land. It was one of the most memorable moments of my vacation, even if it sounds kind of insignificant.
This was the first time I tried pain perdu and I LOVED IT. Then I began to order this at every place I went during my vacation if it was on the menu.

After I realized I was spending WAY too much money on cabs, I tried a double decker bus. I sat at the front row on the top level. Probably the best and cheapest method of sightseeing.

  14. London looks amazing! I *sort of* regret not stopping by when I had the chance to go to Paris, the bf wanted to stay for three days but I didn't however what decided it in the end was the flights lol, the only flight that worked for us was the straight flight to Paris, but oh well it turned out all right because we got to stay longer in Paris that way =3

    Omg has it really been 2 months already since the trips?! Time really does fly and you're heading to new york possibly? Hope to see some gorgeous photos if you do! I really like those black and white prints of London.

    Ok, won't lie, the eyes on the back of those chairs sort of creep me out lol and I'm sooooo jelly you got to go to the Albert and Victoria museum!!!

    P.S I always get super super sad when I think about how they tore down the Crystal Palace for the fist world expo =( Every time I imagine how beautiful it would have been tears me apart!

    1. aw you should've just taken the Eurostar to London from Paris! it's only an hour away. but London requires a lot of time too..so you should just plan a trip there for longer next time ;]

      I know..it's so long ago it seems!! lol I won't be as excited about NYC though..

      actually I didn't go to the V&A :( I didn't have time. I did even less in London than I did in Paris..so many things on my list for "next time" !!

      wow I just Googled the Crystal Palace..looks amazing!!
