....my suitcase not me!!! ;) :D
I'm back.... :( Could have stayed there a little (lot) longer! But... I'm back and that has it's advantage too.
I wont bore you with too much words, it was awesome - as usual!! I had lots of new things to eat, discovered a few new places, spend a little too much money and the most important thing: I had a blast!!
I'll be back soon.... :)
First our tiny, cozy but really modern apartment:
bed (for both of us, thank god we have no problem sleeping side by side!!)
our apartment was just a few minutes from kensington garden (hyde park) away!!
to get to the whole foods I just had to walk across the small end of the park!
I even did go for a run (from kensigton gardens to hyde park and back) on saturday morning!! It was beautiful!
fall arrived in london too.... (but it was much warmer than in switzerland, which is astonishing!)
on friday we got to watch the The Royal Ballet dance the Mayerling
everything was beautiful and impressive!!! even though we hadn't had a perfecte place (but for only 9pounds it was good!) we enjoyed the entire three hours!
some church on our street
the mandatory pic with a london bus ;)
what is that thing doing up there?!
on sunday we visited the Hamton Court Palace whit its huge Gardens
some details at the entrance
but found the center (and exit) of the maze!!! thanks to R!! ;)
some ducks in the park
the big "hat"-trees (with R standing unter it)
more hats! they are just awesome!!
just beautiful..... with the fountain in the middle
tiny bushes along the path
we even got to meet King Henry VIII and his fifth wife on there wedding day!!! :D
it was breathtaking!
lots and lots of chimneys
squirrel in Kensington park
and here we are on our fly back home.... :(
last Thames sighting
before we reached the sea and with it France
sunset over the clouds
and since this is a food blog, I wont leave you without have few goods:
(a blurry) me waiting for my mixed falafel pita with aubergines and potatoes
my beautiful niece with her (huuuuge) fish and chips
suuuuuuushi!!! of course we had to have sushi!! one california, one salmon/avocado roll.
on saturday we found a farmers marked with lots of yummie things!!
one of the many wraps (me) and sandwiches (R) I did for us
wrap: turkey, baby leaf salad, tomatoe, hummus, onion and garlic cream cheese
sandwich: turkey, cheese slices, baby leaf salad, butter, onion and garlic cream cheese
a vegi stir-fry with the farmers market organic vegies and later added three organic eggs
we found FroYo!!!! I still can't believe how awesome this is!! And we don't have it here!! :(
I had the first one (not pictures) with blueberries and cookies and the second one (two days later) with blueberries and pineapple! Since the topping was a little sparse I crumled some GranolaBar on top! Yum!
and last but definitely not least, my whole foods purchase:
loooooooots of bars (since we don't have them here), pb&co chocolate dreams (sooooo good!!!), yogi tea (we don't have the detox one here), goji berries, hemp seeds, almond butter (all things that either we don't have here or is just so much cheaper there!!) YAY!!!
I know, I know, it's a lot of pictures, but since I was with my niece and her loving of taking fotos of everything, believe me, this is just a little fragment!
Hope you enjoyed it! And most importantly I hope you all had a good time, did good and were happy with what you did!! If not, today is a new one!! Make it a good one!! ;)
