Weekend Scenes: March 14th & 15th

Saturday morning we took time to get some everyday things done, like laundry, that had been piling up on our to-do list. But the second half of the day was full of flat hunting. We had spent most of last week hopping all over the city to see flat after flat. We have been struggling where we waned to live and what type of place we are looking for (quiet with green space or close to work and buzzing with things to do) but we saw a promising place finally (the last one we saw) on Saturday that we have our fingers crossed for!

Sunday, was fairly rainy so we thought we would head over to Harrods for the first time ever. I have to say, we did not last long in there at all (we also lost each other some how). Our first thought was let's get some food but that was quickly shoved aside when we saw the crowds. After wandering around some, we decided it was best we go find somewhere else for lunchโ€”ha. Harrods just might not be for us but it was a place to experience.

We ventured over to the Kensington Crepere, a place we enjoyed during our visit to London a year ago. It a great little spot to enjoy (of course) crepes as well as waffles, ice cream, hot chocolate, shakes, and so much more! Our main mission of the day though: book shopping. I have been doing a lot of reading since we got here. It helps me to relax during the business of flat hunting and working on getting the studio together so we can relaunch here. We found this cute spot right but the Crepere called South Kensington Books.

After there, we hopped on another bus to take us to Stanfords in Covent Garden. We heard good things about their selection so we thought we would take a peak. Little did we know our bus would decide to end its route early, forcing us to walk in the rain through very packed streets and the equivalent of Times Square here in London. Needless to say, it wasn't the most pleasant journey, but we got there and Stanfords had a great selection of travel oriented books, my favorite to read. I love to hear about other people's journeys.

After that, we decided we had enough of the city and came home to do our weekly chats with our families back home. We sure do miss them but are excited for the adventures we will have with them once they come to visit!
