Things To Do In London | Visit The Houses of Parliament

August 23, 2017
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 -
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 | The London Dungeon

March 11, 2017
London Dungeon
Having had a very substandard experience in a similar attraction in London, I was quite hesitant to go to the London Dungeon as I thought it would be just as bad. So even if I already have tickets for it, it wasn’t in my intention to visit it anymore. I went to the Southbank area for the London Eye a few weeks ago but the line was horrendously long so instead of spending hours on the line, I decided to use my

Things To Do In London | Discover The World of Shakespeare in Shakespeare Globe Theatre

February 15, 2017
Shakespeare Globe Theatre, London -
I’m on a mission this year, every week I will set aside one of my days off to play tourist in the city of London. I think it’s the only way for me to not neglect this blog and of course to not be a stranger in the city that I live in now. That might break the bank though considering how expensive it is to explore London (at least for me). Thanks to Groupon, I think I’d be successful in this missio

Free Things To Do In London | Visit The Geffrye And Walk Through The Living Rooms From The 16th Century To Present

November 12, 2016
Geffrye Museum, London -
I’m not really a museum geek. I don’t really go to a place and get excited on visiting museums while there. There are only two museums that I actually loved, the Accademia Gallery in Florence because the David statue took my breathe away and the Acropolis Museum in Athens because it’s just oh so beautifully laid out. I’d much rather visit a palace or a ruin, I guess it’s because there&

Things To Do In London | Learn The Important Facts About The Tower of London

November 9, 2016
I visited the Tower of London the other day at around 3pm which I realized right away was a huge mistake. The Tower closes at 4:30PM during winter time so that only gave me an hour and a half to roam around the grounds of the Tower of London. I did the whole tour in such a hurry as I wanted to make the most out of my visit. However, no matter how hard I tried it definitely wasn’t enough. I need to go back soo
