London was the first stop on the trip. And I’m going to go into to detail about the journey along the way, where we went, how we got there, where we stayed etc.
The spontaneous Caitlyn Paterson (who only booked her flights one week prior) and I flew into London Heathrow and arrived at about 830pm. Thankfully it was still light out.
Although I booked my flight two months in advance, we had no idea where we were staying on our first night overseas in a foreign place (crazy right) until we landed.
After getting in contact with a mutual friend who resides in Shoreditch London, quite the becoming trendy, hip town, similar to the Melbourne vibe. All worked out and we had somewhere to stay, yay.
It was an incredible three story loft apartment with a rooftop terrace, we got hooked up!!
I’ve got a little shoot I did in the apartment that I will be posting up so stay tuned for that.
Walking around London, was amazing, the architecture and design of all the building and the streets blew me away, the structure of everything is so beautiful and thought out. Shopping everywhere in central London was incredible, Oxford street, Regent street and Carnaby Lane were a few of my favourites, get lost and lose track of time! But maybe plan to have at least a week there! Each store alone I could spend almost a day in they’re so huge haha.
Being typical tourists we did a drive by of the iconic London sites such as the London Eye, Big Ben and Westminster Abbey.
If I were to move to London I would definitely reside in Shoreditch, there are so many cool boutique stores and trendy places to dine and boogie, a lovely friend showed us Shoreditch House which was really cool and hip and who doesn’t love a rooftop pool!
I caught up with cousins I hadn’t seen in over 10 years and seeing them in their hood for the first time was such an amazing experience.
Lastly Sushi Samba, located near Liverpool St, was an amazing 47th Floor restaurant and bar. With breath taking 360 degree views of London! 100% recommend not too miss going here. Especially if you’re a seafood lover like I am! The cocktails and selection of all things sushi were to die for!! I could not fault anything about this place. A great venue to meet up with friends and drink and sushi the night away.
