They say that if you get bored of London, then you get bored of life. I completely agree! There has been so many things to do in London and beyond, that I have had limited time to write about it. I can say that I’ve never smiled or laughed so hard in my life, I have seen and done things that I would never have imagined in my wildest dreams, I have met some wonderful people (during work and play) that really put life in perspective and I have been able to enjoy this experience with my husband and some long time friends.
Today my girl friends and I spent the afternoon at The Ritz London drinking tea and eating cakes and scones. We chatted about our travels and giggled over our adventures in Europe.
There were a few things that stood out at The Ritz. I was 5 minutes late for afternoon tea and I had to ask the doorman where the afternoon tea was held. The foyer was opulent, like a palace with a grand staircase, flowers everywhere and gold gilded everything! When I walked towards the door that lead to afternoon tea, I was greeted by two very smartly dressed doormen who smiled and simultaneously opened the doors to another hallway filled with light. I thanked them and wandered through the hallway while marveling at the high ceilings, intricately designed walls and the harp player playing classical music. I then sat myself down while the waiter asked me for my coat, complimented my outfit (they must say that to all the girls!) and then gave me a numbered key for the cloak room. Even their clock room keys are fancy!
Since I had so much fun at The Ritz, I thought that I would share the photos as my words alone could not do justice to this experience. Enjoy the photos and have a great week!
Do you have any other suggestions for experiences in London? I’m keen to do everything that I can while I’m living here!
