Greetings from London to you all. We made it to London and the city looked beautiful and magical with the snowflakes and festive lights. First stop was the Somerset House; spectacular site with a wonderful ice skating ring in the middle, indeed a hidden jem to be discovered in London. There are wonderful exhibitions, magnificent collection of paintings (by Rubens, Manet, Gauguin and many more), and family workshops. They also host a lovely Deli called Tom’s Deli with great pastries, sandwishes an coffee & tea. The Ice Skate Rimg is open until January 23rd, worth a visit.
One of the things I love about London is that it is a great walking city and you get to see a lot by walking. We walked from Somerset House to Covent Garden (about 15 minutes), which looked very festive with the lovely and huge red bauble decorations. With live opera singing at the background and wonderful markets, an amazing site to see.
And English National Ballet’s Nutcracker; an incredible performance to remember and fill you with the festive spirits. And if you still have some energy, head to the real winter wonderland in Hyde Park with lots of rides and attractions:)
Hope this greetings find you all well. Best wishes for the Holiday Season and New Year, and safe travels to all!
