Greenwich - PINAYFLYINGHIGH.COM-202
Greenwich is one my favorite boroughs in London, there’s something about the wide open spaces and the beautiful architecture of the buildings around Greenwich which I find so charming. As I’ve mentioned before, I’m definitely not a city girl which made the small town look of Greenwich so endearing for me. I’ve been meaning to do a Greenwich day trip itinerary for quite a long time now but it was only last w

As a couple, The Greek Mister and myself don’t really give much thought about our wedding anniversary but it sure is a good excuse to have a special and fancy dinner out. We’ve been craving for a tomahawk steak for such a long time in fact, the last time we ate a proper one was in Del Frisco’s Steakhouse in New York during our honeymoon.

For someone who claims as not being a fan of chain restaurants, I’ve been eating in a lot of them lately. What can I do? London’s dining scene is so diverse and so competitive that even chain restaurants need to make sure that they’re on top of their game so they won’t be overshadowed by other establishments. I used to runaway from chain restaurants like a plague (specially when I’m tr

HOUSES OF PARLIAMENT- PINAYFLYINGHIGH.COM-107
One of the famous icons of the city of London is the beautiful edifice of the Houses of Parliament by the River Thames. It’s hard to miss since the Big Ben is directly attached to this building. I remember seeing it for the first time, the scene of the empty Westminster Bridge as the protagonist of the film 28 Days Later crosses it came to mind. It was 6am then on a Sunday so it was only myself and a few earl

Exactly one year ago today, The Greek Mister and myself took a flight out of the Middle East which was our home for 9 years to go to the greener pastures of London (quite literally). Whenever we’re reminded about it, we’ll both agree that it was the best decision we’ve ever made. Don’t get me wrong, we did enjoy our 9-year stint in the Middle East but the reality is, it’s not a forever
