Hampton Court Bike Ride Tour by Coddiwomple Tours - PINAYFLYINGHIGH.COM-104
If you’re a tourist and you think about London, the Westminster area immediately comes to mind – Big Ben, the London Eye and Westminster Abbey. Notting Hill will come as a close second specially if you’re a fan of Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant. Then maybe the shopping strip of Oxford, theaters of West End and possibly Hyde Park too. I may be wrong but my point is, when you think of London you alway

Canbury Gardens, Kingston, London - PinayFlyingHigh.com-101
This is my neighborhood. WOW! I’ve never thought I’d actually say that when describing one of the boroughs of London. It’s been 6 months now since we’ve moved from the Middle East to London and yet, I still can’t believe that I actually live in one of the most beautiful boroughs in one of the most famous cities in the world, in my opinion. :p This is Kingston-Upon-Thames, a mere 30-min

Christmas Lights in Kingston
My love for Kingston is growing more and more each day that I spend here. Up until now, 3 months since we’ve moved here, I still can’t believe that this is now my new neighborhood.

I took a Kingston walking tour the other day which included Cleave’s Almshouse as one of our stops. I’ve been passing by this row of houses since we moved to Kingston and never realized the importance of this building until I took the tour. It’s one of the reasons why I joined the free walking tour, to know the story behind the numerous beautiful and dated buildings around the area. Luckily, the w

I planned to go to Notting Hill Carnival this year however as it was the happening on the same weekend that we moved into our Kingston apartment, I wasn’t able to find the time to do so. Little did I know that Kingston has its own Kingston Carnival which happens one week after Notting Hill’s, every first Sunday of September and so I geared up and was determined not to miss it. As a London and Kingston
