london • national gallery & bibimbap & british museum

More London photos!! A bit less this time than usual, because my camera battery died on this day… Today we’re heading to get some Korean food at Bibimbap (a restaurant in Soho on 11 Greek St that I REALLY RECOMMEND!!) as well checking out the really big name museums – the National Gallery and the British Museum.

london • victoria & albert museum

The V & fuckin’ A everybody!!!!! I could scream forever about this place. On this day in particular I actually was trying to go somewhere else, but the bus schedule was different for some reason and I wasn’t able to get there in the end sooooo I went to the trusty V&A.

So the bus I was supposed to take to get to my planned destination was at Wellington Arch, but through a series of unfortunate events that could have probably been prevented were I more comfortable with asking for directions and help from strangers, it didn’t work out.

london • natural history museum & harrods & nando’s

More London pics today!! Today we are takin’ a wander over to the Natural History Museum and Harrod’s, which both need no introduction or description, with a stop in the middle at Nando’s for food. If you take away one thing from visiting my blog, let it be this: Nando’s is the crown jewel of the British Empire. *mic drop*

A close second for crown jewel of the British Empire would maaaaybe be the shops on the high street. Marks & Spencer is unreal. Honestly. I guess I could compare it to Target in the US, because you can buy clothes/food/a lot of other shit there, only Target is like…the Guy Fieri version of M&S. And M&S doesn’t really sell electronics or toys. OK, this comparison did not pan out, but my ultimate point is that M&S is a heaven and if you ever find yourself in the UK, that should be your third stop. (First = hotel/lodging. Second = pub for food/drank.)

london • camden market & regent’s park

It’s been, like, half a year since I left London and I still have not gotten all my photo posts up like I wanted to… WELL HERE THEY ARE! Or, here another one is. There’s, like, three more. Today we’re going to Camden Market and Regent’s Park, in search of mac n cheese and shelter from the rain, because it started pouring while we were out that day so we ran home.

london • kensington gardens & hyde park

Oh boy, this is gonna be a monster of a little series – Today we’re gonna start taking a look at all the photos I snapped while living in London from January to June (of 2017), and I’m gonna attempt to give you some tips should you yourself want to take a lil trip to the land of prawn cocktail crisps. I debated making an actual “London – A Guide!” post, and I even started it (it’s sitting in my drafts as we speak), but it was just too damn much and I didn’t feel qualified enough. (This is a discussion for another time, ‘this’ being the pervasive feeling of “not enough” that I am always feeling.) So instead, I bring you a diary of everything I committed to camera memory, plus some commentary and the occasional helpful comment. 🙂 Let’s get into it!

brighton & oxford • photo diary

OK, this guy’s a bit of a belated travel diary post. When the fam and I were still in the UK (so, months ago), my aunt and uncle came to visit so we thought we’d take them on a couple day trips out of London – one to Oxford, home of the Hogwarts great hall, and Brighton, a cute lil seaside town. Here are some photos from that! Continue reading

paris • travel diary (day 7 of 7)

Our last day in Paris is upon us!! 😭😭 Time has flown the fuck by, but like that Winnie the Pooh quote, how lucky I am to have something to miss once it’s gone, right? On this day my brother actually had a pretty bad stomach bug of some sort, so my dad stayed home with him while my mom and I went out. (It worked out well, because my dad also had a conference call for work that day.) Our planned destinations were the Palais Garnier and the Galeries de Lafayette, which were both lessons in how majestic and grand and expensive-looking places could be, and then we also stopped in some random stores to see what a French supermarket was like. (Spoiler: very nice. Very, very nice. They have candles shaped like purple chickens!!)
