On y va: Londres! – Part I

London, dear London. I figured blog-titles look so much more sleek and intellectual when written in French. Here’s where I tell you how much I enjoyed yet another trip to London. To be honest I’ve not been feeling too happy about my pictures, but maybe that the lazy inside me talking since I told myself every day last week to go on blogging. It’s a bit of a mismatch of pictures, part two will be prettier, I promise!

London has been incredibly good to me, yet this past week (since arriving back home that is) I’ve been incredibly tired. Maybe that’s a good sign… I’ve been doing quite a lot when I was gone. During my stay in London I’ve also been doubting where I should do my internship next year… oh decisions, decisions!

We’ve visited several places during the week, after arriving on Monday around 3 pm we rushed and got ready to leave for a little walk around the city towards Tate Modern, one of my favourites in London. Last time I visited I got to see the Yayoi Kusama exhibit, this time I saw a few Rothko’s which I liked quite a bit more than in the books I use for studying. Later that night a few friends and I hit a pub for some fish and chips plus some beer… how could we not?

We’ve walked around for a bit after that, and then I got myself a Cadbury cream egg (Halloween edition, obviously). – Oh, on a side note… the hostel we were staying at was pretty horrid so if you’re planning on a good and cheap-ish stay in London, don’t go to Driscoll’s House on New Kent Road!

On Tuesday we got to do our city tour, a little assignment we had to prepare before hand (it’s a studytrip after all). Later that day we visited the Kensington Palace, which had a gorgeous exhibition on Victoria.

Later that day we got our asses over to a shopping spree around Oxford Street. Dinner at Kimchee was one of the best ideas I had that week. After hearing Shini from Park & Cube about it on her blog and instagram I couldn’t help myself. You may or may not already know about my love for Japanese cuisine, Korean cuisine is currently growing on me as well. Although the amount of spiciness should still be limited quite a bit… Choosing the bulgogi hotpot was my second best idea… although everything at the table looked and smelled scrumptious.

Alrighty, more next time folks. Have a good weekend!
