So the holidays are now sadly coming to a close and although it hasn’t felt like much of a holiday with all the extra work needing to be done, the break has been nice and I have managed to do some of the things I wanted to do. I hope you guys have had a good holiday too and have enjoyed the break!

Last week, a friend and I decided to go into London for a day of adventure and typical site seeing. She needed to get some pictures for her school art project and, even though I have lived about 20 minutes from London by train for the last 4 years, I’ve never actually been to London just to explore the place, so I thought it was about time I did!

Recently, I have decided that I would get more organised and started this by making lists. So far it hasn’t worked in my favour. I made a list of what to take with only three things on it. I managed to forget two of those three things including my purse which, I would say, is a necessary thing you need when going anywhere. Luckily I wasn’t too far from home when I realised so it wasn’t too bad but still, not a very promising start!

We didn’t really have a plan on where we were going to go until we reached the train. My friends had a few ideas of where she wanted to go and where would be best to get good photos. But she had also heard of this cafe that just sold cereal called the Cereal Killer Cafe that was on Brick Lane so this is where we first headed. I have to say the cafe was a lot smaller then I expected and I little disappointing however the walk down brick lane was really interesting. They have some very cool graffiti down there and we found this amazing chocolate shop where they were giving these amazing 
samples however I can’t remember the name! Has anyone been there and maybe know its name?

After that we went to Covent Garden. I haven’t been there since I was about 8 years old and when I walked out of the tube station I nearly died when I saw the Charlotte Tilbury shop right there! In there I wanted to buy EVERYTHING but sadly didn’t have the money. We didn’t stay long in here as it is really for those who have lots and lots of money or want something for lunch as there isn’t really much to do there and most of the shops are very expensive. 

My friend has been going to Camden Town ever since she was a child as her family love it there but I’d never been before and it is quite a strange place! The market is filled with these amazing food stalls with everyone trying to give you free samples where ever you go! Rachel said that once she didn’t even have to buy food as she just went round all the stalls eating the testers! There are a few jewellery stalls and I got this beautiful hexagonal ring for my thumb which is something I have been looking for for such a long time and it was just perfect! There was a stall that sold beautiful, fully functioning, old cameras for just £30 pound which is something I would love to have but need to do more research into which ones are best and what you can get film as I have no clue about these things! I would definitely say that Camden is a place to take someone who hasn’t been to London much and likes fun and exciting atmospheres and doesn’t mind a bit of exploring!

And finally, as any really tourist would, we went to Embankment for the typical tourist photos. However we didn’t stay long as by now our feet were seriously beginning to hurt! Rachel managed to get some good photos for her art project and I got some classic London shot to put on my wall and it was a good way to finish the day! So after that we headed back, managing to get the quick train too which I would say was one of the highlights of the day!
