On the 23rd of November, I travelled to London with my boyfriend and my cousin…I realize now, that it’s been over a week that I have returned, and I haven’t posted anything about my trip yet. In my defense, I didn’t have enough time, till now to look at the photos and create a post. Plus, I wanted to do my giveaway first, to give you plenty of time to enter, before Christmas (in case the winner wants to order something for the holidays)! If you haven’t entered the giveaway yet, you can do it now. But it’s only open for my Greek readers this time, so I ask my international readers to forgive me for this. Today, I’m sharing with you my first full day in London. Meaning, I arrived there at 2AM, so my days there started on Saturday morning.
Our hotel was 30minutes from central London by bus, so we started from Baker Street, had some breakfast, and waited for my dear blogger friend Denise to come and meet us there. One of the main reasons I said yes to this trip was to meet her in person, so I’m really glad we made it. We walked a lot with her, unfortunately under the rain. We started from Oxford Street, and walked to Soho, stopped for dinner somewhere, and then continued to Piccadilly Circus where we left her. After that we continued walking, took some other streets until we reached our bus stop which was in Marble Arch. We didn’t do many things that day, mostly due to the weather, but we walked a lot and saw parts of Central London. There’s an overload of photos (mostly food ones) so excuse me for that.

I know Japanese food isn’t as good as seeing photos from London, but that’s what we did on our first day there, and I wanted to show you! It seems that I had to go to London to try Japanese food for the first time. hehe I hope I’ll have the chance to try more dishes in the future.
After that, we walked through Soho.

At first I thought to crop myself out of the photo because I didn’t want to put “my cartoonish eyes” on! But then I figured, why not, it goes with the background! So here are my big Japanese cartoon eyes again! Me and my amazing blogger friend Denise! She is such a sweet girl, and I consider her one of my best friends, even if we live so far apart, and I only met her for the first time in person there. Denise, it was great meeting you! I’m so happy!

And with this photo, my first post about my trip to London comes to an end. I know most of you have already been to London at least once, but it was the first time for me, so I hope you enjoyed seeing my photos and reading my experience.
I hope you stay for the next parts of my London experience, which will be posted next week. I hope you all have an amazing weekend. And I hope to find enough time to decorate my house for Christmas.
See you all next time with another London post, and don’t forget to take part on my giveaway (only open for Greek readers!).
