London Walks | Twickenham Riverside Walk

December 17, 2018
Twickenham Riverside Walk, London
It’s been months since I’ve written anything about my beloved London, life’s been hectic with work and I went on a few holidays too – not that I’m complaining. I honestly miss exploring London specially now since it’s too cold and gets dark quite early to do any explorations like before. The last walk that I’ve done in London was this – the beautiful Twickenham Rivers

Regent's Canal Walk, London, England - PinayFlyingHigh.com-405
Whenever I have some visiting friends who’ve been to London before, I almost always take them through the Regent’s Canal Walk. It’s one of London’s many hidden gems which not very many people know about or have time to do during their first visit to London. This area gives you a completely different feel of London – from the grunge side of Camden to the peaceful nature walk along the c

Autumn in London

October 14, 2018
Kensington Palace and Garden, London, England
Spending autumn in London is the best! I love the fall season, yes it could be cold, breezy and rainy but I still think it’s the most romantic season of all.  Bundled up in the thickest of my jackets like a person in a zorb ball (because my fashion sense is highly questionable), I love having long walks in different parts of London and just taking

London’s Hidden Walks: Hammersmith and Chiswick Highlights

October 7, 2018
Strand-on-the-green, chiswick, london
The Hammersmith and Chiswick walk is by the far the most interesting and the prettiest walking tour I’ve done guided by my London’s Hidden Walks book. Apart from the pretty lanes and expensive houses that I passed by in this route, I was most interested in all the riverside pubs that I saw. There were too many and all of them had an amazing view of the Thames River. Upon seeing the photos I took, The Gr

Day Trip From London: Hever Castle

Hever Castle, England - PinayFlyingHigh.com-214
If Helen of Troy had a face that could launch a thousand ships, then Anne Boleyn’s can start an entire new religion that will change a country’s history forever. Since moving to London, I’ve been obsessed with Henry VIII’s stories and his 6 wives and for whatever reason, I have this weird fascination about Anne Boleyn specifically. I don’t really know why because she’s certainly

The Art of Eating Japanese Food in Tokimeite.

September 9, 2018
Tokimeite, London - PinayFlyingHigh.com
If like me, you have a list of restaurants you’d like to try in London, put Tokimeite at the very top of that list. You’ll just have to trust me on this. I’ve kept it aside for such a long time mainly because I couldn’t be bothered going into the central part of London and having to deal with the massive hoards of tourists in Regent Street. Tokimeite makes that painful journey worthwhile. W
