I decided to go to London to visit a good friend of mine. I stayed in the beautiful leafy suburb of Notting Hill for the week. Strolls through Portobello Road markets, Oxford Circus and the Borough Markets was just what I needed to get my mind off skiing! I had an incredible time in London. I now understand why so many young Australians move there. The city has so much to offer. Great architecture, culture, food, coffee, and shopping! What more could you want? I was VERY fortunate to get a week of great weather too, so no complaining there!
After a week of being a tourist, including a visit to the top of St. Paul’s Cathedral, the Tate Modern museum with a fellow Melbourne archi student, food tasting at the famous Borough Markets, a stroll down the river past the London Eye and Big Ben, and the discovery of a few great restaurants and quaint British pubs, it was time to head back to Munich to meet the team.
I'll let my photos do all the talking...
