So here’s the scoop.

I’m currently sitting at my couch, watching the latest “This Might Get Weird” podcast episode, eating Doritos. Finally.

I finished moving in with Sir Boyfriend. That implied moving in the 5 giant mirrored wardrobe units (and their content) that were lining the walls of my closet room on my previous house.

I started renting out said previous house, ’cause I’m a (small) home owner. That’s how I (modestly) roll.

Our balcony floor was cracked. Had to fix that.

Our eletric panel broke. Had to fix that.

Our kitchen is starting to fall apart. Still have to fix that.

Went to a wedding.

Gathered budgets for a new kitchen.

Went to another wedding.

Went to Turkey for 2 weeks and came back having to plan a wedding.

Sir Boyfriend will be Sir FiancĂ© from now on. I guess after the 2 days it took to move in the wardrobes, he realised I wasn’t going anywhere soon.

Travelling to London: Tales, Trends, Treats & Tips

A week ago, more or less, Sir Boyfriend and I took a small break from work and went to London for 3 days. Thank the travelling Gods for low-cost airliners that enable us to have more distant weekend getaways .

Being my second time around in the city, I had a few places left I had to check off the list. We also wanted some time to just wander off and enjoy the city. Staying true to a big European capital, London is full of history, culture, diversity and novelty.

This guide is divided into four major categories: a cultural visit to historical places, an enjoyement of trendy places and temporary exhibitions, the indulgement in shopping and eating experiences and useful tips for this trip.

Travelling to London – Part 1: The Tales

While planning for this trip we filled our itinerary with museums and royal palaces. Wouldn’t be a visit to London if we didn’t allow ourselves to be immersed in the history of the city and the tales of the kingdom.
We started with the furthest back history hotspot, chronologically speaking. The Natural History Museum was our first stop.
