TRIP TO the UK, part II: London and Camden Town

Hello sweethearts!

Although I have many obligations at this time of the year, I can not resist to go back in the UK one more time at least in my mind, and write the second part of posts about my adventure in the United Kingdom. This time I am taking you to London!
We started the day with a good breakfast, my first traditional full English breakfast in a pub. I must say I quite enjoyed it :)

Then we hopped on the train to London, I did expected a loud and crowded, a little chaotic city. But I did not expect so many construction sites...London is full of scaffolds and builders, that a bit undermines the original impression.
...and what did I do when I saw a first red telephone box?! Strike a pose!
First I had to go to the gift shop for some souvenirs, then we went toward Buckingham Palace. Again, so many people/tourists that it is impossible not to be photobombed hahaha
And when we are not posing seriously...
...we giggle all the time :) It was a nice experience to see and get the feel of royal. I really liked the Victoria Memorial!
Further we went through a beautiful park toward the Westminster Abbey. Only a step away from the urban bustle of the city, The Diana Princess of Wales Memorial Walk takes you to a whole other world. Beautiful park and a home for pigeons, ducks and gorgeous swans. It really thrilled us!
Very soon I saw the  Gothic abbey church:
The surrounding is beautiful, so many young people just casually sitting on green grass and soaking up the sun... Even though the showers were announced for that day, it was beautiful and sunny so we could not resist and sit a little too.
Westminster Abbey truly is mesmerizing:
 I was so fascinated by the church that I did not even notice the Big Ben right in front of me hahaha I gasped when I turned my head :O
Oh and look at my gorgeous and hot blonde friend Eniko (Vintage Memories blog)
Through yet another wonderful park I ran to the famous red telephone box with a Big Ben in the background to photograph oooh only about 3GB of videos and photos of me :P
We stopped a little at Big Ben to soak up the atmosphere of the city... Bagpiper across the street defiantly played despite the noise of cars, what a guy! I also had a nice view of the London Eye.
... and we also had to fool around a bit ... because that's what we do when we are happy :)
We spent the afternoon in Camden Town! It was my great wish to go there and see the statue of the British singer Amy Winehouse that I am a huge fan of.
 Camden Town is amazing! I think the photos speak for themselves:
Camden is a perfect collision of different worlds that makes wonderful diverse culture and a charming place.
On the street you can buy everything, from handicrafts, souvenirs, clothing and footwear, to the freshly squeezed juice.
Especially emotional for me was to see the statue of Amy, that was something that I never thought I'll do...
Also we had to take a sneak peek into Camden's Collectif store :)
It seems that me and my hot blonde friend in whatever Collectif store we go in somehow we always get warned about something hahahha #sorrynotsorry ;)
I got Collectif swimsuit on sale for 11 GBP, Splendette bracelet and Collectif necklace:
Camden's Irregular Choice store, cuz we cant resist those pretty shoes!
I saw a little bit of London and a little more Camden. Wasn't expecting a lot of London but Camden swept me off my feet! Fusion of everything fed my senses.
Sorry about a long post but next one is going to be even longer...coming up- Twinwood Festival!
Love, Eleanor
