London, baby!

¡Hoy he estado en Londres! Los que me conocéis diréis que no tiene mucho mérito, ya que vivo en Oxford, solo a una hora. Pero como he estado en Sudamérica un año, me ha hecho mucha ilusión volver. La verdad es que no me había dado cuenta de cuánto echaba de menos la ciudad hasta que llegué a Marble Arch. Tenía ganas de hacer muchas cosas, pero al final he acabado, pasando el día en Selfridges, antes de ir a patinar sobre hielo en Kew Gardens.

I went to London today! If you know me, you'd be thinking that's not a big deal, since I live in Oxford, after all, only an hour away. But as I've spent a year in South America, this WAS a big deal. I only realized how much I've missed the city when I arrived at Marble Arch. There were lots of things on my to-do list, but somehow I ended up spending most of my time at Selfridges (dreaming of a world where I could afford something else than stationery or food) before going to
Kew Gardens for an ice skating session. Fun!

Así que, para la próxima visita, ya tengo algunas cosas en mi lista de cosas que hacer:

So, for next time, these are the things at the top of my list:

Enrollarme (snog) con alguien, o simplemente, ir a esta tienda de yogur helado que se llama Snog. Tiene pinta de ser divertida y deliciosa.

Snog someone... or just visit this frozen yogurt shop, called Snog. It looks lovely, fun, and yummy!

Ir a la exposición de Annie Leibovitz, en la National Portrait Gallery.

Ir al mercado de las flores de Columbia Road y, una vez ues esoty allí, comerme un pastelito de Treacle (Gracias a mi amiga Rachel, que fue la me llevó a la tienda por primera vez).

Go to the Columbia Road Flowers Market. I haven't been in ages!!! And, of course, once I'm there, I'll have to have a cupcake from Treacle (thanks, Rachel, for introducing me to them!)

¡Tengo muchas ganas!

I can't wait!


  1. That's a great blog, but it's loading a little slow for your readers. You should take a internet speed test and check your connection.

  2. Wasn't slow loading for me - yeh I bet it seemed strange to be standing in Selfridges after South America !

  3. p.s. Thanks for your kind comment on my (blog that was!) I will admit to feeling a little sad.
    BUT, of course I will continue to follow (you won't get rid of me that easily !)
    Take care

    Jan, it'd be good to see you here, since I can't read Symmetry anymore! You can always guest blog here if you want to come back but not commit to anything long term!

  5. Ah, thanks for that suggestion B
    Who knows what the New Year will bring, but I'll stay in touch !
