Day 09: ARGHHH….

Today was supposed to look like this. Wake up early, get to Luton Airpot, about 1hr outside of London, fly to Milano. Spend day with German and Nubia. Grab train to Florence. Drink wine and eat pizza. But NO… it didn’t go as planned. We had our first “learning” day on this trip.  We underestimated…

Day 08: ☔️💂👑☔️

Our last day in London was a very wet and rainy one. We decided to stay close to our neighborhood and go see Buckingham Palace and then do some shopping afterwards nearby. We finally made it home and did laundry and packed for our next adventure in Italy. We couldn’t leave England without a proper…

Day 07: Street Art & Harry Potter

Today we feed each of our guilty pleasures.  Marissa’s love for street art and Sandra’s fondness for Harry Potter. We took a free walking tour of the street art in the East End all along Brick Ln. Our tour guide, Colin, was great and had a very deep knowledge of the artists, many of whom…

Day 06: Museums & Amigos

We both finished up our last days at work today. Lots of stuff to wrap up before we unplug from work and just enjoy our vacation and time together. Cute buildings in our hood: Marissa took a quick jaunt over to the Tate to see the city lights at night before meeting Sandra and Gaby…

Day 05: Hyde Park & King’s Cross

Today, we decided to take a couple of hours in the morning to see the city during the day and work a bit later instead. We started the day with breakfast at Gail’s Bakery, just a few blocks from our Airbnb in Marylebone. Cute neighborhood full of shops, bakeries and coffee shops. Afterwards, we made…

Day 04: Pinocchio

The other night, when we were strolling around Covent Garden with my aunt Lorraine, I noticed a poster for Pinocchio. As a kid, I remember watching this movie over and over again with my family. It was one of our favorites. I couldn’t see the date of the show so I decided to look it…

Day 03: Mind The Gap

Today we were starting to feel the effects of jet lag and had a rough nights sleep. But once we got our caffeine fix we were ready to go. We both went to work… yadda yadda yadda. Met for lunch near Sandra’s office and had an amazing Italian meal. Yes, that is a giant head…

Day 02: Tia Lorraine

Today we both made our ways to our respective offices in London… it took us a while, but we finally made it 😉 We decided to take the train to work together since our offices are just a few stops apart on the same line. Low and behold after Sandra got off at her stop…

Day 01: Travel to London

6.5 hour flight 🙂 3.5 movies 😀 2.5 hours in immigration 😥 We finally arrived at our Airbnb in London. It took a little bit longer than expected due to increased security at Heathrow airport. But we made it! Our AirBNB host was super patient as we didn’t arrive until almost 2am. But we got…
