Kensington Gardens, Goodbye London

My last day in London was hungover. Very rarely do I go to a club that requires high heels and eye makeup – that’s not really the scene here in Amsterdam. But one of my very favorite ladies in London, Roshni, is a Mayfair princess, and has a habit of treating me to the swankiest nights out when I’m in town. Last year we danced the night away on a table at Jalouse, and this year, she introduced me to Project, another posh night club in London with awesome house music and flowing drinks. The night was amazing and fuzzy. ProjectLondonThe following morning was rough. Admirably, Roshni got up to catch an early train down to Paris. After a strong cup of tea, I set off to meet up with B for our final afternoon in London. The sky was oddly bright, and I was in need of a good dose of fresh air, so we decided to stroll through Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens before catching our train. IMG_5701 IMG_5703We met at Marble Arch, picked up yet another coffee, and headed into the park.IMG_5707 IMG_5708 IMG_5710While the sun was scarce, we did get a happy glimpse of blue sky.IMG_5712 IMG_5715We strolled through the length of Hyde Park, and then on to Kensington Gardens. All of the trees and flowers were just on the verge of blooming. The grounds were manicured and fresh – just waiting for spring. IMG_5716 IMG_5718The gardens were beautiful, and the fresh air was delicious – the perfect cure for a fuzzy head!IMG_5719 IMG_5721 IMG_5728 IMG_5729 IMG_5730Even the litter bins were pretty!

The hotel next to the train station is absolutely beautiful, and is quite a sight all lit up at night.IMG_5807 IMG_5810 IMG_5817 IMG_5818 IMG_5821We wandered through the station, and after one final pit stop in M&S, we hopped on our train, just in time. IMG_5824Hello train goodies / hungover dinner! Goodbye London, you were wonderful and we can’t wait to see you again sometime soon!IMG_5827
