London weekend trip


If you are visiting a world city like London for the first time and you know that you only have 2 days to enjoy it, this is my advice: Pick 1 area that you really want to explore and spend your whole day walking around, finding nice places and enjoy being there. On the 2nd day, you can visit the more touristic attractions and explore the city center. Especially when day 2 is on a Sunday when most boutiques are closed anyways.

Today is going to be a good day - London

A friend had given me the tip to spend time in Shoreditch so I have choosen to explore East London. Travelling with the underground is extremely easy and fast in London, it only took about 20 minutes from Oxford Street to East London. It is an area with a lot of vintage stores, pop up shops, great food places and markets.
