Unexpected Surprises

My move to London has been full of unexpected surprises. Lovely surprises. For one the engagement and the planning of the weddings for two of my dear friends. Olivia, now recently wed, met her dream man when she moved to London...an english man. It was such an honour to attend their wedding here in London; an elegant, intimate ceremony full of love and happiness. Congratulations lovebirds! 

Attend an english wedding..tick!

The Globe

While exploring the nooks and crevices of this magnificent theatre you can easily see why the classic plays written by the talented Shakespeare has lasted all these years and will forever stay deep in our hearts. The globe theatre alone invokes romance and mysticism. Pinch me am I in a midsummer night's dream...

*update since I posted. I've seen three shows in this theatre: Macbeth, The Tempest, and A Midsummer's Night Dream. Strongly suggest you put this on your to do list for London. Definitely pinch me moment all round, plus you can bring your own food and drinks inside.

Photo Diary: York

Oh my goodness...have I been slack in posting. I have a valid reason...these past few months have been socially busy...exploring London, the UK, the world. Which have all been most beneficial for my two loves - travel & photography. Talk about full calendar. I think I've only had one weekend in three months where I was able to sit down, drink tea, sort & edit my photos. 

Here's the first of many photographic updates; my spontaneous weekend trip to York. York is one of the last remaining walled cities the UK. Romans walked on these lands and built fortresses to make any enemy quiver in their boots. Despite it's military and political history York does have its beauties, magnificent cathedrals! Not to mention the scrumptious Yorkshire puddings are to die for for those food lovers. 

Enjoy lovelies. xx
