London Baby Part 2

Marble Arch

Even if there was a very cold wind the London sun greeted us with a smile. The morning of the second day, after a bit of shopping we decided to go to spend some time in Hyde Park. As London is a bit further south than Stavanger, where I live spring was a bit further along here. The trees where green and a few of the blossomed.

We walked around the park for a bit before we sat down to enjoy some food and the sun. The park was full of life, as it should be on a sunshiny spring Saturday. People rented the little boats offered to go on the lake, there was a roller-skating class, plenty of people out jogging or walking and a few that had the same idea as our-selves. To sit down and enjoy the beautiful sunshine.

After that it was time to visit Oxford street and the streets around. This was a very crowded affair! I’m glad I knew this in advance and that we decided not to spend too much time here, we did however visit a few shops.

I didn’t find much to shop and that was ok, but it was nice to have a look around shops that you can’t find at home. Where I live we don’t have a Disney store and even if I’m not a child I really like visiting the magical world of Disney regardless of how commercial it may be. I also enjoy looking around Liberty, a very special store and it’s a nice place for some candy and tea.

  1. I was in Oxford Street yesterday evening purchasing a new vacuum cleaner from John Lewis. I do know how to enjoy myself don’t I?! Seriously I am not a big fan of Oxford Street due to the crowds. However your visit to Liberty sounds nice. I haven’t visited for years but agree with you that it is a great shop to visit. Your trip to the park sounds wonderful also.

    I love that kind of shopping too. Easy. Nothing you need but everything you might want if you did.

  3. I’m not sure what Liberty is, a city? We have a Disney store in ever mall here. I guess when you live close to a big city you get that. Thanks for the tour.
