Self-Guided Regent’s Canal Walk

October 21, 2018
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

September 9, 2018
Tokimeite, London - PinayFlyingHigh.com
If like me, you have a list of restaurants you’d like to try in London, put Tokimeite at the very top of that list. You’ll just have to trust me on this. I’ve kept it aside for such a long time mainly because I couldn’t be bothered going into the central part of London and having to deal with the massive hoards of tourists in Regent Street. Tokimeite makes that painful journey worthwhile. W

Self-Guided London City Tour On A Santander Cycle-For-Hire

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

London’s Hidden Walks: Kensington Walk Highlights

May 19, 2018
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. I find it so charming and for some reason, I do feel like it has a small-town feel to it although it really isn’t a small town. In fact, some of the city’s most expensive houses can be found here – houses that I won’t be able to afford ever in this lifetime. From
