MY SECOND HOME/VEGAN HAPPY LAND

I’ve yet to go on a trip where things haven’t worked out. I feel like it was about due time – but I will get into that later. I bought a new lens and was very excited to use it. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to take as many photos as I had hoped to.

 

The plan was 1 week in London, 4 days in Croatia, and then 4 more back in London. London was amazing, as usual. Seeing friends and family always leaves me with a full heart. I feel so lucky to know so many talented designers (who sadly I don’t see enough) and having people who understand what I experience on the daily feels really good. 

 

I also went back to a couple of the places I had lived which were nice to see and sparked a flurry of good memories.

 

I also saw and experienced some new things. For example, I rode a bike for the first time in ages. I discovered my dangerous handlebar arm wobbling was all due to the low height of the seat. I was much more in control after adjusting it. What a lovely way to travel in the city (minus the scary busy intersections). We also stopped by my old university’s Kings Cross campus (Central Saint Martins/Uni of the Arts). During this visit I had a lot on my list of things to do, and of course abandoned the list in favour of spending more time with good friends and relaxing.

 

The things I didn’t get to do:

  • St. Paul’s
  • Temple of Hackney (vegan chicken shop)
  • Rooftop patio bars
  • Vegan restos (Farmacy, Fed by Water)
  • Art galleries
  • A gig
  • Breakfast/Brunch

 

What we did:

  • Meet up with Uni friends
  • Coffee shops
  • The Shard
  • The Barbican Conservatory
  • Sky Garden
  • Portobello Road/market
  • Kensington Palace Gardens/Hyde Park
  • The British Museum
  • Camden Market
  • Vx (vegan headquarters)
  • Vida Bakery
  • Martin Parr/Sony world photo exhibition at Somerset House
  • A drag show (my first, and it was fabulous!) 
  • Cycling along the river 
  • Bermondsey Market
  • Borough Market
  • Oxford Street
  • Spitalfields Market
  • Lunch at my cousin Carol’s in Crouch End

 

We also discovered the BEST vegan snack EVER!! Quinoa Puffs, jalapeño cheddar flavour. Mind. Blown. I took a photo and showed it to our lovely local vegan grocer owners at Good Rebel in hopes they could get some in. Fingers crossed!

 

There was another neat little product I was examining and tempted to buy but didn’t. It was a Swedish face pod scrubby called LUNA by FOREO. Still curious about it. Anyway, here’s a visual summary of the first couple of days.
