.: Walking in Putney and Richmond :.

I know, I know, I do go to Richmond quite often. If the sun is shining outside I love to walk around the Thames and Putney and Richmond fit in perfectly for that.



I’ve photographed this gentlemen a few times already, love his paintings

Have a lovely week πŸ™‚

.: Walking around in Camden :.

A few weeks ago, we had friends over from Germany, so I had planned a few places I wanted to take them. I’ve started with a lunch at the Portuguese place near Camden, in Morning Crescent (O Tino)

You’ve gotta love meat and clams & pickles! (Carne de porco a alentejana) Love it!

Followed by a creamy coffee cookie-cake

And then coffee and honey liquor! After that I was more than ready for the walk. I wanted to take them to Camden, simply because it’s quite a unique part of London and both of them had already been in London before

I was feeling really full, but the food market around Camden is one of the best in London. So many good choices!

The street art is also quite impressive

After Camden we did a walk along the Regent’s Channel

We stopped in Regent’s park for some drinks and later to a pub. We ended up going to Carnaby Street and Picadilly

We’ve also went to a nice fish & chips place in Soho

and then a walk to an awesome place with Guinness (The Toucan Bar)




A night in London is not complete without a stop at Gordon’s! We’ve enjoyed a nice bottle of Port wine for the 4 of us. Yap that was quite an evening

.: Sunset walk in Richmond :.

One of my favourite walks has to be a walk along the Thames from Kew to Richmond. As it was a Friday and I was keen on taking some sunset photos we’ve ended up parking in Richmond and walking just around Richmond.

As we were Β both starving, we’ve ended up going to one of our favourite places in Richmond: Pig’s Ears. If you are a fan of beer, please do visit this place! It’s heaven!

I had a delicious risotto, but also recommend the burgers and the meat in general. This time forgot to take some pictures.

Kwak – Ginger belgium beer

I had a stout, which tasted really like coffee πŸ˜€ The ginger was admittedly the night’s favourite and recommended by the staff. So good!

Service was excellent as usual. This is really such a perfect place to go in Richmond πŸ™‚

After dinner he wanted to do some long exposures. I have to admit this is not my sweet spot in terms of photography and mostly I don’t like them. But it was such an amazing night I could only join!

If you had to select one place for a walk on a Friday night where would you go? Looking forward to your suggestions πŸ™‚

.: A morning walk & Massage :.

Because my birthday is getting closer and next weekend we will be away, I was offered a Spa day with a 30m massage. We had a 30m walk from our house into the SPA, and I felt amazing! Just wish I had my proper camera with me.

Let’s go for a walk, shall we? (All the photos below were taken with my phone)

These yellow trees are just in front of our building, they look so adorable

Then it’s a lovely walk along the Thames, I feel so lucky for living here!

This place looks as beautiful in Autumn colours as it does covered in snow! (For the snow photos check my Let it snow post – in my main blog). Back to Autumn

I have to try this little pubs along the river! I have been here before but they tend to be quite crowded in the afternoon


The sunlight in the morning is quite unique isn’t it? Today was absolutely beautiful

Love these doors, they look so pretty and welcoming

Finally we’ve reach the Spa. We went to this one in Chiswick: Roko. We couldn’t really enjoy the pool because there were only 4 lanes, and there were many people around. Did a bit of sauna and jacuzzi before going for massage.

Oh boy, I did discovered pain in my back I didn’t know I had. Apparently because of working with 2 computers at the same time and keep on turning, I apply to much pressure on my back and shoulders. I had loads of pain, but after 30m massage I felt a lot more relax. My muscles felt like screaming and shouting “Please be more careful on how you sit!”. Yap, guess I need to be more careful.

How do you like to enjoy your mornings?
