I am a Londoner, always loved living here. I think we Brit’s can sometimes be a little too critical of our home, not sure why because there is so much here to love and enjoy, especially in London.
But what I wanted to share here is the fact that hitting the big 50 should not stop you from living. I find myself doing so much more now than I did when I was married. I’m not trying to say that people can’t have exciting times and be married, that’s not what this blog is about. I’m in no way belittling marriage because if you are in an exciting, happy marriage then you are lucky and should appreciate what you have. Equally though, if you end up single again after a long marriage, it’s not the end of the world and life can still be exciting.
So to the point, if you are wondering what do in London, this was my weekend:
James Bond Exhibition – London has many exhibitions running throughout the year. Just check it out and see if there’s something you might be interested in.
Cocktail/Music Bars – Too many to chose from here in London. Yes we could quit
assume that these are places for the young only but no harm in trying some out. You may be surprised by what you find.
London is home to many bars with a variety of themes. Some have live music, some do happy hour if you do early and a good selection of cocktails.
Visit a Market – There’s plenty to do in the daytime too, just get outdoors to Camden Street Market. So full of life, open every day but to fully
appreciate the character of the place, Sunday is the best day to visit. I couldn’t even begin to list the different street food available here.
The market is situated on Camden lock and runs along side the canal, this just adds to the whole experience.
I went for the Caribbean food today, followed by an fresh iced tea. Tried some homemade carrot cake, then stopped for an Italian ice cream on the way home. Oh almost forgot the coffee break too. Yes not great for the waste line but life is for living.
Here’s a small selection of photos to wet your appetite and don’t let me here you say “what can I do in London?”
