Beautiful Riverside Pubs in South West London

April 7, 2019
The Magpie, Sunbury-On-Thames
Days are finally longer and there’s a slight hint of increased temperature that I can feel in the air. It’s only a matter of time when the al fresco weather will be upon London which means, riverside pubs season! There are a lot of pubs in the city centre but there’s something about riverside pubs in South West London that’s more interesting, it’s just a prettier scenery in the leafy d

Date Nights in London | 6-Course Tasting Menu at Jean-Georges At The Connaught

March 1, 2019
Jean-Georges At The Connaught, London
It’s been awhile since I’ve been to Central London. I have been keeping myself away from it but not on purpose, just don’t have the time to do so as it’s been quite busy with work lately. I do feel guilty about this as I vowed to myself when I moved to London 3 years ago that I’ll never take living here for granted and will explore the city whenever I am off from work. (Gosh! Has it be

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

September 30, 2018
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
