mind your gap city escape!

Missing London right now. We were so blessed (and lucky!) to have sunshine in London. It made our park visits chirpier and pictures turned out pretty good. Some of the highlights of the trips were having a cup of butterbeer at Hogwarts, watching Arsenal VS Liverpool live, lazing around in Kensington Park, catching Les Miserables with my lover boy and mad shopping (mad didn’t even cut it) at Primark!

I didn’t quite like Brixton (the neighbourhood we stayed at) because it was a bit dirty and our apartment was just right next to a pub – you could imagine how well I slept for 7 nights. Hence, we decided to book a room at Montcalm (near Marble Arch) for a night before heading back home – okay, I still love London after that one night in the luxury boutique hotel. My taste is getting too expensive for my pocket!

I could tick off drinking a cup of butterbeer Hermione style from my list. It was indeed a wild experience to check out Harry Potter Warner Bros. Studios Tour. It’s amazing how much work was put into the production and I definitely learnt how to appreciate the movies more right now. I would highly recommend this for everyone – kids and adults alike! We got our tickets from and the price is inclusive of bus transfer from Victoria. It was about 90 minutes journey from the city – so, you might want to prepare some snacks for your trip there!

I had to applaud Luq for getting a pair of legit tickets to Arsenal VS Liverpool at Emirates Stadium. We didn’t manage to get the tickets online despite being a red member (well, that’s not deserving enough apparently)! So, we tried our luck with Craiglist and got in contact with a few sellers. Ok ladies, if you want to score some brownie points, you should recommend this site to your partner. This site is legit, but just be mindful of scammers – we almost got scammed the first time around! We got a pretty good view of the match. We were so close to the field that I could hear Alexis Sanchez breathing. It was quite an experience I must say. This is coming from someone who doesn’t watch football at all. One more tick on my bucket list!

Some pictures from our trip! Can’t wait for the next misadventure with this one 🙂
