22 Jan LONDON PHOTO DIARY: CHRISTMAS TIME
Have been six months since I traveled to London for the first time. I went with my sister and I had the sensation I was there before without never stepping it, possibly this happened because I was sitting in front of the laptop screen since six months before the trip, every day, every hour, searching information, looking for the best places and restaurants to go, making an itinerary and then editing it and re-editing… searching for the best trip, all had to be perfect. Lucky us, the capital of the UK deserved her best side, her harmony, that couldn’t be explained on the internet. And we had the sensation that our dad had to experience the city, her gastronomy and the endless possibilities that has to offer London. So we decided to bring our dad in a long weekend to the city, coinciding with Christmas days.
This time, I didn’t plan anything, and I loved it more, I connected more with the city and enjoyed more every second, without having the preoccupation of visit something fast because in 10 minutes we have to be on the other side of the city.
London at Christmas is really beautiful; all is decorated for the occasion and there are a lot of activities for all ages, that sure you won’t be bored.
We didn’t visit anything; apart of the Winter Wonderland market; but walked the main streets and parks of central London, searched for the best Christmas lights, be seduced by some British gastronomy and went for a little on shopping.
