London is calling… 🥰 My dream since I was 15 was to go to London and have a proper english tea 😂 I don’t know where it comes this fascination that I have with England. Prehaps it’s thanks to my father, teaching me about the history of the world or maybe it was the films and books that I grew up with… anyways I have always being enchanted with the U.K.
So went I finally got the chance to go, 10 years later, you could say I was beyond excited 😊 London was the first stop in what I would call my EUROTRIP and it was not quite what I’ve been expecting .
I was only there for 3 days so I believe that it was part of the problem and even though I knew that this was not going to be like what I’ve seen in Sherlock or a James Bond film, I was expecting something else. London is a living city, every where you go there is movement. A fast beating city with too much traffic and too many things to do. Time is what you need, oh and money.
Of course there are the must see places:
The London Eye
The Buckingham Palace
The Tower of London
The Tower Bridge
The list is endless. Again you need time and money. I did went to the places I listed above but I felt that I didn’t do all and that it’s the thing with London, there is so much to do. Believe me, every place you look it’s worth of your attention, from buildings that make you stop and stare them as if you were in a museum to actual museums that make you feel like there is not enough life to visit them all.
It’s a beautiful and intriguing city that mix the past with the present, everywhere there is a piece of history but also it’s a clear example of multiculturalism. You will find more nationalities and you will hear more languages than an airport and that was one of the problems that I had with the city, that english touch is missing in various places and there are some areas that sadly are neglected. But you can have everything , can you?
London was a dream of mine since I was young and to be able to make it real 10 years later it made realize that life goes fast and that dreams do come true but not the way we expect.
So I went to Cancun 2 weeks ago for 4 days. It was a last minute trip to be honest.
Every year my parents have this tradition that they team up with their friends (3 married couples plus them) and they pick a place to go on vacation. This time they picked Holbox and Cancun, although my parents have gone already there, their friends haven’t and you can say, no thank you, to Cancun. So they booked a flight, the hotel and bon voyage!Why did I go? Well I sort of invited myself to the party 🙃 I needed a vacation, things have been stressful in my life these past months and I guess I needed an escape from my reality. I asked my parents and they said, sure why not?If you have never been to Cancun, well imagine Las Vegas meets an island 😂 Being serious Cancun is really a place where you can have fun in every corner but also you can go and find a moment of peace. Whether is the nightlife at CocoBongo or The City ( 2 of the many night clubs you are going to find) , the Pirate ship you can go on board and see the sunset, the x- parks( I always say it’s like the Disneyland of Mexico) where you can do ziplining, swimming in rivers or with dolphins, visit the cenotes, etc. The list is endless.You can forget the cultural aspect, the mayan ruins, the traditional dishes, the language, the handmade clothes and products and of course learn about that part of Mexico.Cancun really has a thing for everybody and maybe that is the problem I have with it.. There is too much tourism now days and it’s becoming very expensive to stay there. Cancun it’s a most in your list you won’t be disappointed, that is for sure.
For a while I’ve been thinking on creating a blog where I can just put my thoughts and feelings. After a very long time meditating, I’ve decided on creating this blog. It’s sort of therapeutic for me, to express myself, to share my thoughts on the things that I love and I’m passionate about.
I don’t know if I’m gonna get followers or if anybody will care to read me but that is okey. This is my therapy and I’m doing it for my own pleasure
If anybody is reading this then I thank you and welcome! I hope you don’t get bored or annoyed by me 🥰
