May 29, 2018
Big Ben, London - PinayFlyingHigh.com-7
Santander Cycle is London’s self-service cycle hire scheme which I absolutely love! It’s the cheapest way to get around the city and I always make sure that I get to use it as much as I can specially if the weather’s good. You can hire a bike from as little as £2, no need to make any reservation and it’s very easy to find with numerous docking stations dotted around the city. London is also very cycle-frie

Kensington Walk Highlights - PinayFlyingHigh.com-15
I was quite excited to do the Kensington Walk from the London’s Hidden Walk book series as Kensington is one of my favourite areas in London.

They’d be out and about worshiping the sun’s rays which they rarely ever get to do. I did enjoy it too, don’t get me wrong. There’s nothing like getting some rays of sunshine hit your face while you enjoy a cold glass of Pimm

King's Cross, St Pancras and Camden Walk Highlights - PinayFlyingHigh.com-31
This is possibly the longest walking tour I’ve ever done so far guided by London’s Hidden Walks book series. So long that I had a swollen ankle the next day, my own fault though because I forgot to put an insole for my flat feet when I knew that this will be a 5km walk with an extension through the Regent Canal. Needless to say, I was limping my way to work the next day. I’m still enjoying all the
