I love having friends visiting me in London, that’s actually one of the best part of being away from home, you become again a tourist in “your own city” and get to experience the real London as it best!
My best friend and her friend came to see me just for the weekend, so we didn’t have much time, they arrived last Thursday and left yesterday so it really was an express visit, plus on Friday I had to work, so literally we had the evening of Friday and Saturday, as they left very early on Sunday.
On Friday I recommended them to take a tour-bus to have a generic idea of the city as on Saturday I wanted to show them my two favourite places in London: Candem Town & Bricklane!
Once they came back from their tour we meet at home as we wanted to have a girls night out, so I made a reservation in one of my favourite Italian Restaurants here in London, Zizzi.
The good thing of this restaurant is that they are all over London, from Notting Hill to Chiswick (which is the one we always go) and the food is just to die for! they have an open plan kitchen with a fire wood oven ( I’m not sure if is call like this, but you know what I mean 😛 )and we had a proper catch up with a lovely meal!
On Saturday we woke up early and went straight to Candem Town, I will never get tired of that place…the most I visit it the most I like it!,
After having one of the best Fish & Chips I’ve ever had, we hit to BrickLane, where some other friends joined us,
It really has been an amazing weekend and having her here, even for that short period, has giving me that bunch of energy, is so hard to be that far away from each other but I still have my hopes up that one day our routes will comeback together and we will manage to live in the same country (at least) because at the moment I hardly see her once a year, but no matter how long we spent apart, the moment we get together is like time didn’t pass by…
Happy Monday Beauties!
