All right, so, it’s been two full weeks since I came here and I’m still trying to wrap my mind around it! Amazed by London too much? Yes. Annoying people with this? Maybe. Feeling guilty about it? No!
After two weeks of being in London, I finally get out at Westminster Station and… Why, hello, Big Ben! Nice to see you again!
This second week was rather busy as I’ve had plenty of things to do at work.What I really love about this internship is that I never do the same things and of course I learn a lot of things along the way, even little tricks and tips. Also, the weather has been lovely… perhaps a little bit too much? Who said it was impossible to get a tan in London? This weather also reminds me of last year in Siena, where I was complaining at first because the air was suffocating but then I got used to it and didn’t want to leave anymore!
Apart from work, I’ve also had the chance to go out and explore the city a bit more. Last Wednesday, I met two lovely interns and we spent the evening in Southbank, having drinks and just chatting about all sorts of thing. If you’re into people-watching, then Southbank is ideal! On Friday, after work, I went for a walk from Westminster to Tottenham Court Road. I didn’t get as many pictures as I should have… maybe because I was too absorbed by everything around me! Gotta work on that…
Now, moving on to the best worthy news of all: I have finally tried Korean food! Antonia, if you happen to read this: a major thank you! 😀 Antonia is a huge fan of Korean food (well, food in general, actually) and has also created a blog about it. Basically, her aim is to try every Korean restaurant in Zone 1, in London. I say it’s a pretty fantastic idea! Wait til you see what Kimchi is all about…
Nothing but healthy and tasty food! Now, all I want to do is run to the closest Korean restaurant and have some of this! #callmecrazy
On my way back home from work. It’s always nice to go on the upper bus deck (yes, I’m still a kid about this) and discover new things! If you’re not brave enough to walk in London, take the bus and enjoy the view!
You might have noticed that I’m slightly more active on Twitter and Instagram. You know these times where you forget your camera and have no choice but to take pictures with your phone? Long live Android apps for fast-sharing! 🙂
This weekend I’ve been meaning to go to Hampstead Heath, but unfortunately, the Northern Line was closed and had no way of getting there… But I still have plenty of time! 🙂 I’m planning lots of things for the next weekend (which, hopefully, won’t be this hot): visit London Sea Life, the Museum of London Docklands, maybe check out Brick Lane and explore Charlton Village (which is 10 minutes away). Somehow, Charlton makes me think of the Charleston…
London’s fast pace makes me want to make the most of those three months even more! You don’t become a Londoner overnight, but I have a feeling I can almost get there (let’s not be modest). After all, if you’re open to everything that London has to offer, it will welcome you with open arms!
Stay tuned for more London Diaries, ladies and gents! 🙂
