Two Weeks in London {In Verbs}

Hello!  It’s so nice to be real-time blogging again!  I had all of my posts pre-written for the past two weeks, but here I am again.  I landed back in Santiago, from London, on Saturday and am ready to get right back into reading all of your very wanderful posts.

Before going home to London, I thought I’d have posts galore to write up when I get home, but in the end I’ve decided to write just one summary post because I indulged all my time in seeing family and friends and really didn’t take my camera out as much as I would have thought.

::So, here are my two weeks in London, in verbs::

Feeling at home when spying the most amazing scenes from my plane into Heathrow.  I can’t quite believe how close and detailed I got to see so many famous London landmarks, it was pretty special!DSC06643DSC06656

Gazing up at the sky from the new Crossrail Place Roof Garden, it was especially nice as there was barely anybody else there!DSC06662DSC06664DSC06668

Enjoying seeing all of the pretty and unusual houses that London boasts, I love the variety of architecture in the city, both old and new and how they fit along side each other.DSC06798DSC06672DSC06752

Admiring London from it’s newest viewpoint at The Tate Modern, and it sure looked pretty, even on a grey day!DSC06673DSC06676DSC06683

Snapping away at pretty flowers, because summer flowers just instantly mean happy, especially those in my parent’s garden.DSC06703DSC06706DSC06787DSC06711

Culturing around and soaking up lots of art in Hyde Park, The Science Museum, The Royal Geographical Society and beyond.DSC06720DSC06727DSC06732DSC06797DSC06741DSC06799

Smiling at the sight of the Hyde Park parakeets almost camouflaged but still visible.DSC06734

Tasting Mast chocolate and enjoying the window display too, especially because it reflected the street art opposite.DSC06745DSC06748

Walking around new parts of Shoreditch, where I haven’t been before.  It’s amazing what you can find when you just wander a few streets further.DSC06751DSC06757

Looking up at the bright blue sky that shone down on London for my second week there.  I was so lucky to be there for the heatwave and get a week of summer.  I can’t believe it even reached 33!DSC06782DSC06783

Finding street art, always.DSC06775

Polaroid-ing.  One of my friends gave me a polaroid for my birthday so I started to snap away and safe to say, I love it!IMG_7265

Counting my steps on my new FitBit 🙂

And of course… the very best part, Soaking up every moment with my family and friends.

What a great two weeks that was! 😀 So, what have you been up to?

  1. I loved this post!
    I know right? Every time I go visit home I bring my camera hoping to come back with great blog post ideas but in the end not much comes out of it because you just do “normal” stuff with family and friends.
    I love Hyde Park and the Tate. I love your photos too. And the Crossrail Place Roof Garden looks awesome, so does your polaroid picture. 🙂

  2. So glad you had such a good time at home, and definitely good call on the spending time with family and friends. Every time I go to Australia to visit my sister and family I come back thinking I’ll have loads of stuff to share – and find exactly the same. Nothing! (Especially as I don’t put my nieces/nephews faces on my blog, and that’s all I seem to have photos of..!).

    Still, I enjoyed the photos you did take. I really must explore more of London. Hope you’re settling back in well!

  3. It looks like you had the best time being back in London! It’s always so much fun when you’re back and you can see all the sights and experience everything in your hometown! I would have been taking a ton of pictures of all of those flowers too! They’re so beautiful!

  4. It must have been so fun to have a beautiful London summertime when it’s the middle of winter in Chile! Not to mention, being home and everything 🙂 How often are you planning to come home to visit?

  5. I was loving your images of London all the way until I got to the polaroid image. Wow! So cute! You make me want a polaroid camera! So fun!

    Glad you had an enjoyable time in London! Thanks for sharing all of the wonderful images! 🙂

  6. Loved this post, Marcella! Those aerial views coming into Heathrow are always so exhilarating! I’m actually moving to London for my postgrad degree in September. Do you have any tips for a young person new to the city? Thank you!

  7. Wow! Looks like you had a great time. I enjoyed seeing all the new places you discovered. I would like to have a Polaroid camera. I have see entire tours dedicated to that. I would also like to have a FitBit to count my steps!

  8. So glad you had such an awesome time at home! I can’t wait to see you and hear all about it in person! I really really love that picture of you in the reflection with choose love! Amazing. Hope you’re feeling better Marcella! 😀

  9. Love the idea of conveying your time in London in verbs – very original! And funnily enough, I was recently looking at a polaroid – definitely a treat purchase if I get one as I don’t really need it but I just love love the idea of them – looks like so much fun!

  10. I know I’m late, but it looks like you had such a wonderful time in London, and took beautiful pictures, as always. Did it kind of feel like you’re a tourist in your hometown? 🙂 I would love to see your Polaroid snaps! I’d love one of those cameras!

    • Thank you!! I felt so at home, I don’t think I’ll ever feel that a tourist in London as I feel my heart swell when I arrive.
      I’ve only taken a few Polaroid snaps so far as I’m trying to savour them as the price is so expensive for the film! Buttt, when I’ve built up enough, it’ll be a fun post to write!
