London Impressions

kensington

I never really had a favourite city, but I think London takes this place now. I love the energy, the coolness, how relaxed everyone is, but you can still feel the pulse and the progress. And I love the architecture – so diverse! My favourites are the houses in Kensington, were we stayed, with their white entrances, oriels and balconies. Also, London is so green! Of course, there are the big parks, but there is also s much greenery in the front gardens and the private gardens in the open areas between the buildings.

I think instead of telling you what we did exactly, I’ll just show you the pictures – I took many, many and here are just some. Still, this is just part one of you London experience, part 2 will follow next week. Maybe I’ll choose a different format then, but I don’t really feel like writing a lot at the moment.
