Hello, my dear friends! As promised in my last post, I want to share with you a few things happened during our last trip to London that might be helpful for your next visit to London.
Before I had kids, I used to plan my travel to the hour, where to go, what to eat, etc. After years of vacationing with young kids, we learned that there was no use to plan too much because half the things we’d either have no time to do or be late to. The most comfortable travel & explore plan is to do 1 -2 activities a day with plenty of time to wonder and rest. As we discovered the year before, food tour is one of those activities that both grownups and children would enjoy. Without much hesitance, we booked a food tour as part of our London experience.
But the British has no cuisine! You’d say, that might be the impression of the past, certainly not mine during the last few visits. London has a very robust food scene with cuisines from all over the world as well as home-bred British culinary stars. This food tour we did, took us to the East End of London where immigrants and working class used to reside but now the stomping ground of the young, the hip and the artists. Besides sampling various foods that the locals cherish, we also had a great walk down the history lane and got to see this part of London from a whole new perspective. Without further ado, here are two sideshows for you to enjoy, the first one is about the food, and the second one is about the scenery.
Learn more about the food tour (include online booking) on their official website. Disclaim: I have no affiliation with this tour company.
What I wore to this 4-hour excursion turned out to be quite fitting figuratively speaking. The look has that 70’s glam feel but of all current trendy designs such as the hairband, the aviator, and bell bottoms. I was limited to the bags and shoes I brought for the trip but in a way, they prevented this look to be overly retro. Let me just tell you, these flatform sneakers are made for walking, I’ve gotten so much usage out of them in the past two years, especially during trips, they are my go-to sneakers for both comfort and style.
Thank you so much for reading! I hope you’ve enjoyed this post. Be sure to check out food tour as part of your travel planning, it is now one of the first thing we do when we visit a new city. See you in my next post!
