Hello dear readers! Currently writing to you from Paris! I actually arrived from London a day ago, where I stayed for a short 3 days (*tear), but I’d like to keep y’all updated in real time, meaning I’ll write about the most recent (or current) city I’m in. However, as you can imagine, writing about everything as they happen each day would be ridiculously overwhelming, so expect to hear more of each place after my trip has concluded. 😉
Literally right after landing and dropping off my stuff, I was out the door and ready to explore Hyde Park right next to the hostel. Talk about getting my priorities straight.
Above all, I was most eager to check out Kensington Palace:
Though nobody lives there (I think), Will & Kate and Harry pretty much live right behind it only a mile away! Little did I know that Kensington was the poshest place in London, so I felt extremely fortunate to have stayed in this neighborhood while here. However, an interesting fact I learned was that there are no clear divides between the rich and poor neighborhoods. Everything is fairly mixed, so next to these nice, posh apartments were also government houses. As a result, the streets are safe to roam!
Afterwards, I wandered to the Kensington gardens which were BEE-YOU-TIFUL.
It was little but everything was so well-manicured!
Another view from the side of the palace:
After this important mission, I continued to wander around the Hyde Park, which turned out to be HUGE. Here’s a few glimpses:
One of the most beautiful areas that I saw were the Italian fountains. Would you just look!
Indeed, there were many fountains. And of course I needed a “selfie” with them all.
So! I think in the time allotted, I did a pretty good job of seeing the best of Hyde Park. Have you ever been? What did you like in there? What is your favorite park in London?
Thanks for reading!
