Good Morning my friends.
It has been a while
since I had enough time to sit and compose something
and visit all your blogs regularly.
Even though holidays I have been away and had visitors,
which I thoroughly enjoyed.
Finding new places in London to show my visitors I stumbled on some
yet fairly unknown places.
This is a new development, not even finished,
but the beautiful roof garden is finished.
It looks rather futuristic.
It features plants from East and West, meeting in the middle. A calm garden on top of a new railway station which is being build in Canary Wharf. It was calm and quiet in the middle of a concrete world. We had a lovely walk and enjoyed the amazing plants and trees there. Have a look for yourself!
There was a piano in the middle of the building so I couldn’t resist to do a fun bit on it which my aunt taught me.
It was great fun and a great place to visit!
More discoveries in the next post!
Keep smiling and enjoy the warmer weather!
London has more than just all the tourist sites to offer….
I went on a Street Art Tour in London the other day and was amazed what I saw.
It was like a walk through London’s largest living art gallery.
We had a super, very knowledgeable tour guide and it was great fun.
The tour was well managed and was enjoyed by everyone. I can only recommend it!
It shows very different views of London’s back streets. around Old Street.
Now, I know it was a street Artist called Art is Trash who did this.
Art is Trash
Street artists want to communicate with the public, make the neighbour hood nicer and also want to express certain views or highlight some social relevant issues.
Here is a taster.
Over Easter, I visited the Sky Garden, the highest garden in the UK. It is on the 35th floor of a building called ” the Walkie Talkie” in London.
Security is high , just like on an airport.
It was amazing to walk around this exotic garden!
It is free for the public but still needs to be booked and only open during working time, so I was happy to get tickets in the holidays.
Well worth going when you are in London!
It was wonderful to add this day to treasured memories.
Enjoy your day and see the beauty along the road!
Time flies and it is already weekend again… hurray!
We went to the Tower of London the other night to see the Ceremony of the keys which is being performed since 700 years every single day and it is open to the public to witness it. The waiting list is long and we waited 3 month for our turn. One is not allowed to take pictures. I did take some while waiting outside the gate to be let in!
It is so much fun to discover more and more of my wonderful London. So come with me.

It was very interesting and we enjoyed a pleasant and fun chat with the guide/ high ranking soldier afterwards who told us more interesting facts around the tower.
Wishing all a wonderful and relaxing weekend!
