With this post I'm wrapping up the Christmas in London 2017 series. Thank you very much for sticking with me! I'm so happy you like (Christmassy) London as much as I do. This was our last day in London and it was a dreary one. And we made the best of it! https://flic.kr/p/2aAJt1j https://flic.kr/p/2aAJtLN We… Continue reading Christmas in London 2017 | part 9.
Although our walk in Hyde Park was rather lengthy, we still didn't feel like going back to the hotel. We decided to explore Mayfair a little bit more - and I'm so glad we did! It was super festive. https://flic.kr/p/2bYFzwM https://flic.kr/p/PBbQuM https://flic.kr/p/2bYFA86 https://flic.kr/p/PBbQWt https://flic.kr/p/2bYFAkF https://flic.kr/p/PBbRsD https://flic.kr/p/PBbSut https://flic.kr/p/2bYFAZX https://flic.kr/p/ReuKrb https://flic.kr/p/2dnjsH8 https://flic.kr/p/2dnjsMB https://flic.kr/p/ReuMgo https://flic.kr/p/2dnjsVT https://flic.kr/p/ReuP1q https://flic.kr/p/2aAJe5o https://flic.kr/p/2cgkcNo… Continue reading Christmas in London 2017 | part 8.
Don't let these pictures fool you. It may have been sunny, but it was freezing. Literally. I actually took a photo of a frozen puddle, which I eventually decided not to post as it turns out that frozen puddles look the same everywhere you are. 😀 However, freezing as it was, the December sun of… Continue reading Christmas in London 2017 | part 6.
Let's pick up right where we left off in my previous post. Since we didn't get a table over at Peggy Porschen's, we headed to our favourite place, Muriel's Kitchen. https://flic.kr/p/2bYDC3T https://flic.kr/p/ResS8m We ordered a cappuccino and a mince pie with warm custard. https://flic.kr/p/PBa5EV https://flic.kr/p/2bYDDkn I love the Natural History Museum skating rink, it's my… Continue reading Christmas in London 2017 | part 7.
After a rather eventful morning (details in the previous post), there was still much more to do and see. We had a reservation at the Ivy Tower Bridge, so we took the scenic route. Carnaby. https://flic.kr/p/2dm6ECn https://flic.kr/p/PzXLqr Hay's Galleria. https://flic.kr/p/2dgBJM5 Let's have a minute of silence for the water path at More London, the removal… Continue reading Christmas in London 2017 | part 5.
There was no snow next morning, but it was still much colder than it usually is in London in December. First thing that day, we headed to the British Library for the Harry Potter exhibition A History of Magic. It was incredible and indeed magical, and I'm so happy to have been in London when… Continue reading Christmas in London 2017 | part 4.
This really was the worst day to find out that I'd accidentally taken two right gloves with me. I was freezing! The shops hadn't opened yet so we walked slowly to One New Change. St. Paul's looks absolutely stunning in the snow! https://flic.kr/p/Rcw7W5 https://flic.kr/p/2bWEP6V https://flic.kr/p/2bWEPqT https://flic.kr/p/2cejHdj https://flic.kr/p/2cejHMq I ended up buying a pair of Oliver… Continue reading Christmas in London 2017 | part 3.
Christmas is obviously over now, but there are still some more London photos to post! So let's get to it! This post is about a very cold, December morning. The Beast from the East had just struck so it was snowing when we woke up. It continued to snow throughout the morning. Nobody talked about… Continue reading Christmas in London 2017 | part 2.
Romjul is a Norwegian word for the time between Christmas and New Year's (though technically it's still Christmas). I've always loved that word because apparently it implies slowing down and taking in all the beauty of Christmas. And that's exactly what I want to do at the end of the year. https://flic.kr/p/RPsbLS On December 27th,… Continue reading Christmas 2018. | Romjul.
Christmas is now officially over but I'm happy to say that our tree is still up. Having a real tree, we always wait for as long as possible to take it down. It usually still looks good for at least another week and the more time with our tree up, the better. The dreaded day… Continue reading Christmas 2018.
