Rainy London Romance

Just a little shot I took on Parliament Hill the other day.

Rainy Romance

A reminder that despite all the wet weather, there´s still plenty of simple ways to enjoy London!

What´s your favourite way to enjoy a rainy day in this city?

A few of mine:

  • Enjoying a relax tea with a spinach and feta muffin and a good book on a couch in the basement of the lovely little New Zealand themed Sacred Cafe on Ganton Street.
  • A meander through Tate Modern with a stop off in the bookshop to drool over all the amazing art books and design magazines.
  • Electric Cinema? Secret Cinema?
  • Or, well, ordinary things like blogging, baking yummy cakes, having a snuggly rainy day film marathon with tea and popcorn, planning my next adventure (Dubai this Wednesday!) or taking photographs of the rain 🙂

Neal’s Yard

Surrounding myself with vibrant colours usually makes me happy, and what better place in London to do that than a little walk through Neal’s Yard in Covent Garden?

The walls scream sunshine and summer and while there isn’t too much going in in the little square, it’s a great place to escape the main crowds and though it’s pretty small, there’s always something interesting to look at.

While you’re in the area, stop by Stanfords books for some great travel-related reading material that will cover any country you’re dreaming of visiting this year.

They even happen to have a Sacred Cafe in the back of the shop. Savoury muffins galore. Mmmm spinach, feta, warm, melted butter…

And a relax tea. Relax and forget you’re in one of the most crowded parts of the city, forget that family block of tourists who made you walk .05 km per hour halfway down the road.

Breathe and think of pretty colours. And, er… fashion weak? ^^

Okay so the street art sticker stuff doesn’t exactly compete with the East End, but the colours of the buildings certainly aren’t as drab!

And there’s even a few blades of grass somewhere in there.

Did I mention funny mirrors and amusing quotes?
