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

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

May 8, 2018
London Riverside Pub Hopping - PinayFlyingHigh.com-10
We were blessed with endless sunshine during the May bank holiday weekend and as you may know, when the sun’s out here in London people generally lose their sh*t. 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

Things To Do In London | Visit The Houses of Parliament

August 23, 2017
HOUSES OF PARLIAMENT- PINAYFLYINGHIGH.COM-107
One of the famous icons of the city of London is the beautiful edifice of the Houses of Parliament by the River Thames. It’s hard to miss since the Big Ben is directly attached to this building. I remember seeing it for the first time, the scene of the empty Westminster Bridge as the protagonist of the film 28 Days Later crosses it came to mind. It was 6am then on a Sunday so it was only myself and a few earl

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
