I hope you’re having a delightful Wednesday :) I’m currently prepping to head to California tomorrow, so we’ll keep this one short and sweet, eh?
Today I bring you photos from our third day spent in London on our Europe trip (that we took back in late February/early March)! It rained all day for this one, so it was nice that we had plans to be inside for most of it. We started off at The Grind coffee shop to meet with my friend, Talitha! Unfortunately, we didn’t actually get to meet up with her :( , but we still got to walk around Borough Market and enjoy everything it has to offer.
This semi-open air market has been around since the year 1014…..no that’s not a typo. Oh Europe and your crazy-old stuff :)
After walking all around admiring all the fresh ingredients and ready-to-eat curry and paella, we stopped for another coffee from Monmouth Coffee, which was probably my second favorite coffee shop we visited in London (my first favorite will be in my next post!). Their coffee was fantastic, and the shop is so cozy!
Coffee in tow (it was nice to carry something warm since it was super cold that day), we continued to walk around the market. Everything was so charming, and we ended up buying some ingredients to cook with that evening! So. Yummy.
Eventually we got hungry perusing through all the food, so Colin got a meat pie and I had some gnocchi with pesto and red pepper flakes….my mouth is watering just remembering both of those! After eating we took the Tube to Oxford Street to do a little shopping. We went into several stores, but my absolute favorite was the Liberty store–major heart eyes! It’s like if Anthropologie designed a department store…dreamy.
I didn’t take photos of this, but we stopped by the grocery store to get more ingredients for dinner, then we cooked at our apartment and headed to the Arsenal football match that night! Colin has been a huge Arsenal fan for a long time, so it was really fun for us to finally go to a match :)
And that was that! I’ll be back to soon with photos from our last day in London, and then we’ll move on to France and Italy! Until then, I hope your week is fantastic. If you’ve missed my other Europe posts, you can find them here (one, two, three, four, five).
