The Notting Hill
I still remember the first time I came to Notting Hill, how I wished I could live here one day. I love how that this place has its own place, a bit slower but still fairly busy as central London. And how it kind of reminds me of Melbourne. Also, the beautiful white house with the stylish black doors, ah, such an ideal. Yesterday, I dragged my mum away from Oxford Street (like me, she's kinda a shopaholic) to Notting Hill. We walked from the Notting Hill Station to Holland Park, to just experience how the area is like. There's just something so elegant about this pace, I fell completely in love.
We arrived too late for the famous Portobello Market, however, it turns out to be the perfect careless mistake. The element of relaxing during your adventures, and the beauty of to not always sticking to your plan. We sometimes focus on reaching the place so much that we forgot to enjoy the ambience. So in case I haven't said to you guys before, travelling should be about the journey, not just the destination.
We didn't plan for any lunch places for the day. And when we walked out the station, the first thing we saw was the big gigantic Jamie Oliver restaurant sign. So we thought, why not? The food was great, I mean, IT IS Jamie Oliver after all. I especially love their pastry collection, the canelé I ordered was beyond amazing. We also ran into seeing a cute little cooking class for kids, they are so curios and full of passion, it was definitely one of the most lovely moments I witnessed in London so far.
Moving from one country to another was never easy. But I was extremely grateful for the opportunities and resources that I'm offered. Let me tell you, the amount of nice and friendly people I've met in London is quite insane. Which leads me to reveal this exciting news, that I'll be officially moving out from the Hotel at the end of next week. Yeaaaaah. To be honest, that was the last thing I was expecting on my check list, I was ready for endless viewing of apartments and writing offers. Instead, I'm all settled for about one week after my arrival, and an exciting future ahead of me. Its such a cliche ending, but I just really wanna share my happiness with you all! And thanks for stopping by! Have a lovely rest of the week!
