    Tasha and Brixton!

    November 11 in the United Kingdom

    November 10

    Today Emilie and I went to Brixton to check out their markets. They were amazing. So many different cultures in one place. Plus Brixton struck me as a pretty cool neighborhood.

    We ate at honest burger which was honestly one of the best burgers I've ever eaten. I had the "Brixton Burger" which had a tough of jerk (jamaican) spices, as well as a generous piece of pineapple running through the bottom. It was delicious and then some!

    Afterwards we went to this thing called "Department Store" which was not really a department store at all. It was four stories, but on top was a beautiful restaurant/lounge which was neat. Then we went exploring in areas that we were apparently not supposed to be, as the elevator didnt let us leave the way we came and we had to take a detour outside. We had a good laugh and got out as soon as we could.

    We went back to the flat for a couple hours to rest/speak with our families. I even had a nap and caught a few minutes of the premier league game with one of the flatmates in the Airbnb.

    By 9pm we met Tasha and Neil in Victoria for some pizza and drinks. The place was quite cheap so we enjoyed three drinks each along with a whole pizza. It was about 1130 when we left and went to the next bar which was a quick stop for just one drink before it closed. Here I got to know Tasha a little bit better one on one. Then we cabbed down to Archer Street and went to 100, this fancy cool basement club. We got settled and continued our evening. Tasha was quite the dancer so we got along quite well, but I always made my way back to Emilie :)

    We closed down 100 by about 3am. We attempted to take a few tube stops to get home, but we frequently came to closed gates. We eventually found one that took us close ish to home and then walked 20 minutes from there. It was just after 5am by the time Emilie and I stumbled back into our bed. I remember brushing my teeth and then I was OUT.

    Nov 11

    We slept until 2pm today. No hangover. WIN!

    We eventually made our way down Brick Lane on a whim, which was an amazing decision. We found this really cool farmers market/collection of street foods. We had sugar cane juice, chicken quesadillas, Argentine empanadas, chicken skewers, and
    alfajores with dolce de lece for dessert. It was all delicious!

    There was some really cool art and these candles that Emilie really fancied. Unfortunately I didnt think we would have any room for candles in our carry on small bags. But I ended up sneaking back to the shop and grabbing a few anyways. I figured we would make it work, and Emilie was very happily surprised when we got home :)

    Later for dinner we had some Chinese and then we just packed and watched a movie before getting ready for bed. Tomorrow the next leg of our adventures starts, Spain here we come!!!!

    Old Spiterfields Market in London

    January 9 in the United Kingdom

    Nur ein paar hundert Meter weiter, neben der schnuckeligen Lamb Street, die mich immer an das „alte“ London erinnert mit ihren kleinen Häuschen und wie es damals einmal ausgesehen hat, liegt der Old Spiterfields Market.
    Mein Tipp: Kommt auf jeden Fall mit Hunger hier her, denn das Essensangebot ist der Hammer!
    Mein Highlight war der äthiopische Imbiss. Ich liebe äthiopische Küche und vereint mit dem 100 % vegan-Schild wurde dies mein auserkorener Mittagsimbiss.

    Geburtstagswunsch: check

    September 2 in the United Kingdom

    Seit Monaten habe ich auf dieses Frühstück hingefiebert und endlich war es so weit. So geht der Tag doch gleich gut los. Und die Kellner sind auch immer so gut drauf. Da wir einmal da waren sind wir mal über den Old Spittlefield Market gelaufen. Verhungern würde man nicht aber mit Old Spittle, wie noch vor einem Jahr, hatte das nix mehr zu tun.

    Wir haben Hunger

    September 3 in the United Kingdom

    Nach SeaLife sind wir eine Stunde bis zur LondonBridge gelaufen. Auf diesem Weg entstanden sie Fotos.

    Da wir hunger hatten sind wir nochmal zum Old SpittleField Market gelaufen. Unsere nächste Bahnstation und das Gepäck sind von hier aus einen Katzensprung entfernt.

    Jedenfalls... was isst man hier? Es ist nicht so, dass es keine Auswahl gibt. Sich zu entscheiden ist nur so unglaublich hart. Es lief dann auf afrikanischen Reis mit hähnchen und Kochbananen raus - insofern wir richtig übersetzt haben. Ansonsten gab es noch einen naanwrap und ich hab mir ein naan mit nutella gegönnt. Leute, das Naan hier ist absolut mit nichts zu vergleichen.

    Ich verstehe nicht warum so viele Londoner Frauen so schlank sein können. Bzw schlank... ich meine so abgemagert 🤷‍♀️ ich würde glaub hoch wie breit werden. Es gibt hier echt weltweite küche und ausgefallene sachen.

    Old Spitalfields Market

    June 24, 2017 in the United Kingdom

    Wanted to try out Poppies Fish and Chips. Google pointed us to Spitalfields. Didn't clue in what this was until we got there. It's not a proper restaurant but more like a food court thing in the Market. Unfortunately, as a result, the food is not completely freshly made. Still it is pretty good!
