Unique London Tours | Hampton Court Bike Tour

July 13, 2017
It’s been almost a year since I’ve moved to London and up until now, I’m still so excited about all the things this city has to offer. Yes, I’m still a tourist even after a year. It’s just hard not to be when you’ve got so many places to explore and things to do around you. The latest adventure that I’ve had here was right around my neck of the woods, a Hampton Court Bike T

Day Trips From London | Oxford, A DIY Day Trip Itinerary

July 6, 2017
Oxford - PINAYFLYINGHIGH.COM-229
Many of you already know by now that one of the things that I love about living in London is the endless options of things to do and places to explore in and around the city. Ancient structures, beautiful cities and scenic natural wonders are all just a driving distance away. The mere thought of it excites me and I’m determined to visit all these places and probably more. One of the cities I’ve been dyi

Weekends For The 30-Somethings In London

Hollyhock Cafe, Richmond, London, United Kingdom - pinayflyinghigh.com-109
London nightlife reminds me so much of how old I am right now. Going to the hip and happening places here on a weekend stresses me out if I’m being honest. The crowd, the noise and the drunk people trying to stand on their own two feet around me give me panic attacks. Many moons ago, I could pull an all-nighter dancing like there’s no tomorrow in a club somewhere in the lively city of Dubai. We’ll

Natural History Museum Ice Rink, London - PinayFlyingHigh.com
Has it been that long? That’s what my passport stamp says, that it has already been eight months when I left the desert life for good and started my adventures in the land of greener pastures (quite literally!). Eight months of living in bliss, it still feels so surreal to me. I know it might not mean a lot to some and it could somehow sound shallow but let me tell you my story.   When I was a kid living

Restaurants in Richmond | Petersham Nurseries

Petersham Nurseries - PinayFlyingHigh.com-505
I really do believe that I’ve made the right decision to live in Southwest London, away from the hustle and bustle of the city proper but filled with so many things to do and places to visit. Plus, it’s just a short train ride away if ever we need our “big city” fix anyway so it’s not like we’re missing out on a lot. The London Borough of Richmond upon Thames was another option f

Things To Do in London | See The Spring Flowers in Bloom in Kew.

May 23, 2017
Kew Palace - PinayFlyingHigh.com-532
Flowers are in bloom, weather is (a bit) warmer and children have now gone out of their winter cocoon – yes, it’s now spring in London! I have now officially witnessed the four seasons of this city since I’ve moved here last August and I can’t say I have a favorite season as of yet. I’m still embracing the change of weather (and scenery) from the desert life of the Middle East. Spring
