A Weekend In London

Just a few snapshots from our absolutely perfect weekend in my absolutely favourite capital.

I'm not much of a photographer when I travel, I tend to take it all in with my senses and forget about my camera...

We had a wonderful time. The weather was just right. It was cold and drizzly when we arrived on Friday afternoon but we only travelled to our hosts' house and had dinner with them so we weren't at all bothered by the weather.

Saturday was lovely. I expected rain throughout the day so when we were only met by wind in the morning I was fine. Saturday afternoon was very warm and sunny.

We didn't go around that much as the main event we were attending was a solemn mass at Westminster Cathedral on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of Slovenian independence, presided by the Archbishop of Westminster.

In the evening, though, our good friend invited us to see the musical 'Les Miserables'. It was a total surprise and I nearly fainted of excitement!

I recharged my batteries for a while again... Everytime I travel to Britain - even if it's 'only' London - I feel I've come home. My heart literally jumps of joy and I tend to hyperventilate at the sight of the landscape when the plane starts to descend...

Next year, again?


  1. Londen is beautiful, you captured it perfectly pretty, Biba! Have a lovely evening xx

  2. I know how much you were looking forward to this trip.... I am so glad it all went well.
    Like you, sometimes I forget the camera and just take it all in, breath, smell... and admire :)


Thanks for taking your time!
