London

London. Who doesn't love London? Well... okay. I've met a few who don't but seriously how can you not? It is seriously the center of the world. Everything goes through London. Having experienced Greece with all its goods and bads and being a virgo in sign, London is a dream for me. Correction: London is THE dream for me! Why do I, then, still live in Greece? Honestly... I have no idea. Well.. no, I do. I have a company to run. That's why. Anyway. In this post I wanted to share with you a few things I love about this great city and a few things I do when in London, which quite often. 

I travel to London 3-4 times a year. I feel like it is the city I grew up in (even though it isn't) because it is where I gained my independance, leaving home for the first time and living on my own. As an only child I was overprotected and as all things it had its goods and bads, too. Nevertheless, I have it very close to my heart and this is why I travel so much there. What I love most about London, isn't just one thing. It's a combination of things. I love that it is a big city, a very busy city, it looks gorgeous, I love the weather (no matter how impossible this may sound to most people), adore the shopping (who doesn't), the opportunities it has, it is just a three hour flight from Athens, Greece so it is not THAT far, I can't get enough of the galleries, the museums and the huge never-ending parks and I have lived a great life there really. I have never found anything not to London. Everything is so easy to-do and so organised that you can just enjoy life. I mean again everything has its advantages and disadvantages, and I have only lived there as a university student but I would love to work and live there.

Below I've decided to share with you the restaurants and shops I love to visit when in London.

Restaurants:

  • Gaucho Tower Bridge
  • Berner's Tavern
  • Cecconi's

  • Victoria's Secret shop

  • Waterstone's
  • Westfield

Favourite Sights:

  • Buckingham Palace
  • Big Ben
  • Hyde Park
  • V & A Museum
  • Natural History Museum
  • British Museum

Things I love to do:

  • Walk in Hyde Park
  • Visit the museums
  • Go shopping 
  • Attend some musical or theatrical performance (as many as you can)
  • stay at a nice hotel

Especially love to visit London in the winter but I haven't ever spent Christmas and New Year's Eve there, as when I was a student I would always return to Greece to spend the holidays with my family. The time I always visit London is during my nameday which is November 8th. It is a lovely time to be in London. Most Christmas lights are already on by then, decorations are everywhere and the holiday makeup collections have arrived and so it is major shopping time.

This is everything for today my friends. I hope you enjoyed this post. Let me know if you'd like me to do more of these city posts with recommendations.
