SECRET PLACES AND GETTING LOST

It’s nice to have secret places that you want to keep all to yourself, don’t you agree? I have favourite places to go for walks, to picnic, to waste away hours paddling my toes in a (perhaps not so) secret lake and of course gems of cafes to treat myself to tea and delicious cakes. I suppose these favourite places aren’t so secret at all, but I think it’s rather nice to cherish them that much that you don’t want to share them none the less. Do you all have places like that too? I’d love to hear all about them!

This post was spurred on when I noticed a competition which got me to thinking about where my favourite Secret London plaes would be. I struggled to compile a list, and I’ve decided that I have no favourite parts, but instead just wandering! A couple of weeks ago when Rich and I booked a couple of nights in the centre, we walked for hours in the pouring rain, getting lost and stumbling across the sites. Remember this early hours instagram? Nothing special in theory, but it really was one of the nicest London evening I have ever had. I truly believe that there is nothing better than getting off the beaten track – don’t take the tube, or atleast get off a stop early to take in your surroundings as you make your way. Don’t forget to treat yourself to a hot chocolate wherever you end up, the perfect way to finish exploring in my books! 😉

    I love taking a stroll around London, different times of day and night bring out different favourites.

    I definitely agree! Everything is always go go go in New York and I feel like it’s really easy to lose yourself in all the business of the city, so having a few places to escape to makes all the difference. Wandering and discovering new places makes escaping so much more fun!

    That’s a great idea, I’ve never thought of that. I live in Toronto, and I’ve never thought about some secret place “of mine” here, maybe I should. :)
    I do like however to discover new places in Toronto, like new stores where I’ve never been shopping before, or cafes, or restaurants.
    Those photos of London are gorgeous.
    Have a lovely day my dear!
    Xoxo, Victoria

    I just discovered your blog through Bloglovin.
    I must say you have quite a good way of capturing your thoughts :)) I loved reading this and can’t wait for more posts!
    And about the theme of the article – this applies to any city, especially to the ones you were never there before. It makes you see and feel all the things that you probably wouldn’t with all the hustle and bustle around. Nice to see that I am not the only weird streetwalker out there :)

    Have a nice week,
    Nika

    In order to find the right healthy chemical free product,
    the individual must do their own research to find what is best for their skin. To reduce
    this feeling, simply take a clean feather duster or large powder bush and dust your skin lightly with a small amount of baby
    powder. It can also be charged or connected to another
    device through the audio, and USB ports.

    Thus we became noobs on the water when we purchased our 1957 Sea
