Dreaming of London

The weather has been so crazy here lately – a mix of invigorating Spring mornings, sultry Autumn afternoons, and downright chilly Winter evenings. Such wonky weather inevitably makes me think of London where you can also experience every season within one day, if not a few hours.

It makes me wish I could hop aboard a flight heading for Heathrow where I could meet up with some of my England-based friends for good old visits in a cozy pub or tea house.

We would wander the streets at our leisure, people-watching most happily and stopping to buy the prettiest flowers we could find.

We wouldn’t be able to resist nipping in to every bookshop we came upon. Just for a look, mind you. Though if I had to leave bearing armloads of John Buchan hard covers, I wouldn’t complain one bit.


When we got tired of exploring we’d meander over to Hyde Park and find a sunny spot to rest our bones a while.

What would you like to do if you had a day in London?
