In real time, I just arrived in Paris last night and am trying to spend every precious second running around the city and revisiting all my favorite patisseries, views and restaurants from last summer. More on that later, because London was a whirlwind of fun experiences over the past 3 days. As soon as I arrived from New York, I hopped in an uber (try to avoid black cabs, they're insanely expensive there right now) and made my way to Chelsea to drop off my suitcases at the apartment. I've been to London mutliple times and even lived there for a summer, so I didn't want to waste my time doing extremely touristy things aside from photographing them from the outside. Naturally. I met up with my friend Tobi to find some more off the beaten path locations and I wasn't disappointed. We ventured out to Greenwich to explore the Spiral staircases of Queen's house. I admit it's a bit of a trek out there, but you'll truly feel like you're walking over an old film set in the middle of London and the best part is it's completely free! Seeing as London was absolutely boiling at 36°C I spent the rest of my day cooling off with multiple ice cream cones and time by the pond in Hyde Park. Also of notable mention: the best iced latte at Association Coffee, convincing me that London has truly stepped up its coffee game since I've last visited.
