On a Journey

To gain my sanity and sharpness back i went on a trip to Europe. This time i chose London, Barcelona, Santorini as my destinations.

I will start with London.

Soon as I arrived i was dead tired. But instead of sleeping, my friend Dayu and i walked to Hyde Park. Stopped at PRET to get our picnic meal, i was impressed by how easy it is for Londoners to lead a healthy life.PRET is a place where we can buy yummy healthy sandwiches, soups, some type of fruits and available everywhere. More over we have to walk quite far to anywhere. Yes we took the tube and buses, but we still had to walk far after our stop. So It's freakin easy to eat healthy and probably to be skinny.  We moved around a lot and we moved around fast. I dropped one size just because staying in London for a week!

At Hyde Park - First Day in London

London is very expensive, at least to live. To shop? well that's another matter. I came just in time for the sale. Since i'm a huge fan of English brands, i found my self in an euphoric trance. Everything marked down. Their normal prices are already way below their prices in Jakarta, now they marked it down. 30% off. That's about the same as 60% off Jakarta price. Who doesn't get a little loony?

My second day was a tourist day. We went around the city, to the most touristy spots. I was decked out, totally excited to take loads of pictures. Complete with my new Zara wedges that i wanted to debut. How stupid was i?

Walking in heels, in London? Even stiletto natives like me found it "mental". As soon as we got to Big Ben, i hailed a big black, taxi! We went back to Dayu's house so that i can change into proper flats.

It was sunny, and it was all the sun that i got through out my stay in London. To my surprise i didn't get to meet Kate Middleton. At all. What's that all about? I thought i'd be shopping right next to her in REISS? 

Oh well. Day two and i was tired. So maybe, i'd see Kate in Harvey nics tomorrow? We'll see.
