It is my experience that, when you live in a city, you sometimes “skip” seeing it from a tourist’s point of view. I’ve been living in London for the past 6 months, & visited so many times before moving here…yet there are so many things I’ve missed out on.
I have decided I want to get to know this city properly, & I’m going to take one day/afternoon every month to see something new.
My friend Barbara (whom I’ve known since I was 16 years old) has been in town for the past couple of days. On Friday we met up in front of Buckingham Palace to watch Changing the Guard at 11am.
One hour later, we walked across Green Park and up to The Ritz Hotel for famous Afternoon Tea (it was actually our brunch). It had been recommended to me a few times- & because we had a year’s worth of stories to catch up on- Barbara and I decided to give it a try. We had a scrumptious tray of sandwiches, scones & cakes that came with our pots of tea (Green). It was delicious, & loads of fun. I recommend it to anybody planning a London trip- or wanting to get to know their hometown a little bit better (& also recommend that you book in advance).
