Happy Sunday and happy first advent! The countdown towards Christmas officially begins with the first of advent – and I still need to organize all presents. Speaking off, what are you giving your loved ones this year? I’d appreciate any help because I really am a little frustrated with what to give this year – I might need to look into some online shops later today and get that inspiration going.
Other than that, I am finally back in Zurich since last Wednesday night. London was great, as always, though this time I was actually able to throw in half a Saturday and full of Sunday for meeting friends and discovering London a little more. I usually only go for business recently and as much as I love it, you don’t get to see all too much during the meetings. I can only recommend the hotel I was in, so I will shoot a little post on that one soon. It was situated perfectly for walking around London and so I decided to take a walk on Sunday. I had no plan where I was going and so I just continued for several hours until I noticed I was absolutely lost. The good thing is, that you can jump into a tube almost anywhere, and as large as London seems, the tubes are quite easy to navigate. At least with the right app – thank god for the iPhone and all those apps! I took some pictures along the way, mostly of the architecture. I was lucky with the weather, as the sun was out almost all the time. With some clouds here and there, the photos worked out better than expected. I love the mix between old historic monuments paired with the most modern architecture you can find – and really, it’s all over London. Now, I am not sure whether it was the chilly temperatures out in London or the past weeks with little sleep, though sadly my London trip ended with me catching a real cold. So I’ve been spending the past days in bed with a tonsil infection – and because I seem to be lucky with so many things recently, they will be taken out early next year. Joy!
Since the weather here in Zurich is anything but dreamy, I quite frankly don’t mind the bedtime right now. It’s been raining on and off yesterday and hasn’t stopped once yet. We did have a little snow yesterday morning, though sadly that all went away again. What have you been doing this weekend? xo
