Aloha! I've spent the last few days in London so I just thought I would share with you some photos. Whenever I go to London I do the same things, like shopping on Oxford Street, but this time me and my friend wanted to take it easy and visit some places we've never got round to. Somerset House was lovely, I went ice skating there last year on Boxing Day and couldn't wait to go back to see the Tim Walker 'Storyteller' exhibition, which certainty didn't disappoint. I managed to sneak in some photos after being told that there was no photography in the galleries! We looked around Portobello Market the next day, which was great, like a posh Camden Market, and would be wonderful for Christmas gifts. Apart from those two places, we had lots of coffees, and lots of dinners, so now I'm feeling fat, happy and relaxed.
