London Baby Part 2

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.

    1. I’m not Oxford Streets biggest fan, but there is no denying you can get whatever you need there. The visit to Liberty and the park was quite nice 🙂

      1. You always go to such interesting places. Since I will probably never get to those places, I really enjoy seeing them through your eyes.
