Franco Manca, Richmond Upon Thames - PINAYFLYINGHIGH.COM-100
For someone who claims as not being a fan of chain restaurants, I’ve been eating in a lot of them lately. What can I do? London’s dining scene is so diverse and so competitive that even chain restaurants need to make sure that they’re on top of their game so they won’t be overshadowed by other establishments. I used to runaway from chain restaurants like a plague (specially when I’m tr

Reasons You Should Explore South West London

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

Weekends For The 30-Somethings In London

June 28, 2017
Hollyhock Cafe, Richmond, London, United Kingdom - pinayflyinghigh.com-109
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

I really do believe that I’ve made the right decision to live in Southwest London, away from the hustle and bustle of the city proper but filled with so many things to do and places to visit. Plus, it’s just a short train ride away if ever we need our “big city” fix anyway so it’s not like we’re missing out on a lot. The London Borough of Richmond upon Thames was another option f

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

May 23, 2017
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

Things To Do In London | Learn The Stories of The Ruthless King, Beheaded Wives and Ghosts at The Hampton Court Palace

October 4, 2016
Hampton Court Palace, PinayFlyingHigh.com
Even before we moved to London, I’ve already read so much about the Hampton Court Palace from other London-based bloggers. To be very honest, I didn’t even know about it when I first visited London in 2012 and I guess it’s not only myself who easily missed out on visiting this palace while in London as a tourist. This I tell you though, you should actually make the time to visit Hampton Court Pala
