Pictures from London ロンドンから写真

Wow. It’s been 5 months since I last wrote something here. I don’t know, I just haven’t felt like writing anything. However, my mother is bugging me all the time, saying that there need to be more new stuff at the blog or she will get crazy. So here I am.


One and a half week ago, we went to London for a longer weekend trip. I didn’t really have any great expectations to be honest, but it was amazing. I really enjoyed it, the parks, the gardens, the food, the coffee, the shopping, the people, the pubs. We had great weather too which might have influenced my opinion quite a bit but still, it is a great city and I can’t wait to go back. This will be a brief blog post text-wise, but I’ll compensate with loads of photos. I think that’s what my mum is looking for anyways…



First off is Kew Gardens, this huge garden west of London that’s so big you can’t see everything in a day. It also has little cafes and restaurants. I really liked it there.


Look at these huge water lilies in the water lily house! ほら、このでっかいスイレン!


We also had afternoon tea at Fortnum Mason, which I had been looking forward too a lot. It wasn’t that good though. I could have done it better myself to be honest. Especially for the humble price of around 60 euros per person…


We walked a lot, along the canals, looking at different parks, dropping by in nice shops. I want this flower pot boat.


In one shop I found this amazing cantaloupe drink. Tasted like drinking a blended cantaloupe, straight off. It contained only pressed cantaloupe so no wonder.. but still it was awesome.


There is good coffee everywhere you turn in London. And they are great at breakfasts. I enjoyed everything we ate (besides from the afternoon tea).


And then we walked some more. Through Hyde Park, Shoreditch, Soho, Camden, Notting Hill and along the Thames.  The houses in Notting Hill with the blooming wisteria looked amazingly expensive.

And then we had fish n’ chips. And that was basically it! And I’d love to go back to London any day.

  1. Five months! That’s about as long as I’ve been ill. So it’s interesting that you blog again now that I’ve just about recovered my health so I may once again enjoy your posts. Only wish I could eat that fish and chips but I’ve had to completely over hall my diet to get better. That includes Kefir a fermented milk with other good stuff in it. Try it. Beats that beer🙂

    1. I’m sad to hear that you’ve been ill but glad to hear that you are getting better! May I ask what kind of condition you had? I guess it involves creepy bacteria? Actually, the last half a year I have been kind hooked on sauerkraut and other fermented stuff. And I’ve been reading loads about how to improve your gut bacteria and about the impact that the bacteria have on our health, mood and other things. It’s so interesting and fascinating! Have you tried fermenting vegetables? I’m totally hooked on the kraut…😀

  2. I’m going to take your mom’s side for two reasons: 1) I’m sure she is a great lady. 2) I’d like to see you blogging more, too. Very nice photos. (It’s funny, but my boss was on vacation in England during the same time.) Have a great spring!

    1. Thank you! It makes me really happy and also encouraged to hear that! I guess then that your boss also was really happy about the weather? I’ll try my best to keep up the blogging!!

  3. I love your blog and I’m glad to see your back (thanks to your mom, she has great taste xD)
    I went one time in London when I was 11 and I don’t remember anything except the cherry coke taste and the very bad food our ost family served us. I want to try fish and chips.
    I hope this comment will help you to find the energy for blogging again🙂

    1. Hi Béné, thank you so much for your comment! I feel much more motivated already, knowing that someone appreciates my random thoughts and pictures🙂 I’ll do my best to continue blogging. This weekend I’m going to Copenhagen and there is always something new to see there! You should really go back to London. It’s such a great city and everyone was really polite. Apart from Tokyo, London is the only city where I sort of felt at home. Which is weird since I only spent 4 days there in London, but still. It had a great vibe to it. I hope you get to return some day!

      Once again, thanks for your comment, it made me really happy😀
