London, London, London is calling you, what are you waiting for? What you searching for? – London by Benjamine Clementine
I severely dislike crowds and honestly, London’s tourist attractions are a nightmare concerning that. Well, not just the tourist attractions. All of London is crowded, but the tourist attractions especially. So since I’d been to London before, I took the liberty of not going to any of them.
Instead, I visited Sky Garden, a Garden with an amazing view on the 35th floor of an office building. I walked through Shoreditch, China Town, Soho, Mayfair and Marylebone. I visited the Natural History Museum and saw the Peter Pan statue in Hyde Park. But mostly, I just walked around and drank a lot of coffee. The weather was lovely on Friday, less so on Saturday. That was fine as well since I walked 21 kilometres on Friday and my feet hurt pretty badly. Probably didn’t help that on Saturday I only took the tube once and walked another 17 kilometres.
Yup, so that’s pretty much all I have to say. I’m staying with Lina in Cambridge, so that’s where I’m going to spend the next two days. I’m pretty excited for the rest of my holiday and all the new places I’ve never been to before.
I also made a short audiovisual postcard about London. You can find it here. I’m trying to be more creative and train my eye for nice film compositions. I feel like I still have a lot to learn in that area. So hopefully making one of these postcards in every place I visit this autumn will help with that.
