Things I Learned After Living In London For A Year

August 16, 2017
London Eye, PinayFlyingHigh.com
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

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

It’s been almost a year since I’ve moved to London and up until now, I’m still so excited about all the things this city has to offer. Yes, I’m still a tourist even after a year. It’s just hard not to be when you’ve got so many places to explore and things to do around you. The latest adventure that I’ve had here was right around my neck of the woods, a Hampton Court Bike T

Weekends For The 30-Somethings In London

London nightlife reminds me so much of how old I am right now. Going to the hip and happening places here on a weekend stresses me out if I’m being honest. The crowd, the noise and the drunk people trying to stand on their own two feet around me give me panic attacks. Many moons ago, I could pull an all-nighter dancing like there’s no tomorrow in a club somewhere in the lively city of Dubai. We’ll

The Eighth-Month of My Honeymoon Stage With London

Natural History Museum Ice Rink, London - PinayFlyingHigh.com
Has it been that long? That’s what my passport stamp says, that it has already been eight months when I left the desert life for good and started my adventures in the land of greener pastures (quite literally!). Eight months of living in bliss, it still feels so surreal to me. I know it might not mean a lot to some and it could somehow sound shallow but let me tell you my story.   When I was a kid living

Things To Do in London | See The Spring Flowers in Bloom in Kew.

Kew Palace - PinayFlyingHigh.com-532
Flowers are in bloom, weather is (a bit) warmer and children have now gone out of their winter cocoon – yes, it’s now spring in London! I have now officially witnessed the four seasons of this city since I’ve moved here last August and I can’t say I have a favorite season as of yet. I’m still embracing the change of weather (and scenery) from the desert life of the Middle East. Spring
