After a full English breakfast we decided on our last day to go back to the Natural History Museum, hoping for a small line. And with succes! We only had to wait for 20 minutes to get in. Dinos here we come!
It is so weird to see these creatures which are more than a million years old. The whole museum was really nice, I’m glad we decided to go back because not only the dinos are super interesting, but the whole building is immense. Really strange to believe it was build especially for this collection, and it was only finished in 1880. A great end of our little trip to London!
Our second day in London started with a nice cup of coffee. Although we’re in the country of tea, and I’m a big fan of tea, there’s nothing that can beat a good cappuccino in the morning. We then slowly moved towards South Kensington as a visit to the natural museum was high on my wish list. Unfortunately there was an immense line when we got there. One of the guys who was working there told us it would take us 1,5 hour to get in. We decided to try it again the next day and come a little bit earlier.
So, change of plan! We went back on the underground and paid Portobello Road a visit. We weren’t the only one as it was almost twice crowded as the line at the Natural History Museum. We ended our day in east London, near Brick Lane, where we had the best tacos.
Last weekend, Michiel and I visited the English capital. The last time I was here was a couple of years ago and it was really nice to visit again. We booked an AirBnB near Old Street, which is in the neighborhood where I used to live.
The weather report told us that it would be raining all weekend but it kept dry most of the times, we even caught a spot of sunlight once in a while! That was a real gift because it was also the first ‘field trip’ of my new camera. I tried to shoot manually the whole trip which unfortunately sometimes resulted in way overexposed or super dark photographs but I’m starting to get the hang of it!
Our first day started near Carnaby street, where Percival had a sample sale. Michiel is a huge fan of the brand so when we heard they had a sample sale in the weekend that we were in London, we obviously needed to go. We spend the rest of the day walking around, visiting Tate modern and ended up in Camden with a very nice burger in front of us!
Remember my trip to London last year? I didn’t brought my digital camera with me but the Lomo LC-A and I finally developed the film! Unfortunately, I forgot to bring the flash… So I didn’t make that many pictures but here is a little impression of one of the days when we went to Portobello Road.
