London, My Colorful London
I just returned from a flying trip to London – flying, in that it was a quick trip, but flying in the more traditional sense as well. I have yet to get my husband on a cruise!
I’m working on my Instagram feed this summer, so please follow me @jennatwitsend to see all of my colorful pics from the trip! I’ve added an Instagram widget on the sidebar to keep you all up-to-date.
Each trip I do to London has its own flavor and this trip was no exception. Springtime in London can be a riot of color and so it proved to be on this trip and I set out to find color at every turn.
I has tea at the most colorful, and “instagrammable” cafe – Saint Aymes. Yumm! Who knew pink could taste so good!
I navigated a neighborhood walk in Notting Hill in search of the most colorful houses.
I hung out in quirky Camden Town and let the color come to me.
I was thrilled to arrive home to see an episode of The Amazing Race (not surprisingly, one of my favorite shows!) had aired during my trip featuring Camden Town, one of my favorite places in London.
I searched for and found the mysterious Vaults, full of a grittier color and a very different side of London.
I always make it a point of doing one touristy thing on my visits to London and for this trip, it was going up in the Shard. This is currently the tallest building in England, but a building across the Thames River has eyes on that prize. The views over the city were nothing short of magical!
It was a bit tricky photographing from the Shard, so I’ll probably devote an entire post to this experience.
Head on over to my Instagram page to see more architecture – and yes, spiral staircases – and follow me on my trip to London @jennatwitsend
