It was a perfect autumn weekend to remember. While he spent a busy Saturday engulfed in translation assignments and she spent in the editing, sorting and scheduling posts for the blog – it was long pending to take a day off before everything gets lost in the translation. Rather than a fancy restaurant and dancin’ in a night club, we put aside a few hours of sunshine on Sunday to hang out and be kids together.
What did two kids, footloose and fancy free in London want to do?We headed towards the unsurprising green lungs of London – Hyde Park – which never goes into hiding but is always there to welcome you to breathe fresh air while this time of the year the nature unveils the beautiful seasonal display of its own light and colour show through the falling leaves.
If there is still magic to be found in the world, you’ll find it in autumn sunshine, here.
A massive ‘thing to do’ from the bucket check list was ticked off when he got hold of a Boris Bike to be blessed with pedal force in the stroll around the green reserve. As if it was a propel down the boyhood lane, the joy of moving ahead by not walking with the autumn wind through the hair is too strong to beam the face with the joy of memories being recycled while cycling. Tanusree was as usual bitten by the shutter bug so she made sure that the golden auras of the falling autumn sun shine on her dark shades before saying à demain to Londoners.
We spotted lots more sculptures and art installations inside the park this time than we have seen during our previous hundreds of visits in last 7 years. Which is nice!
While he was playing with his new found toy cycling around, she was making friends with the swans, pigeons, squirrels and birds. So, a happy melange after all!
We thoroughly recommend you give day dating a go. Grab’em and whisk’em away for a fun afternoon. You won’t be able to wipe that smile off for the rest of the day.
After a nice little stroll around the Serpentine Lake watching the greedy pampered feathered friends being fed generously, we also decided to look for a place to get fed before we got fed up.
Uncanny it was, we looked for a pub, but iPhone‘s Siri led us to Burger & Lobsters – a place we had been eyeing to mouth some delicacies for a long time. Some cycling, some walking, some pictures, some lobsters, some falling leaves and the way we weave the memories – charged up for another week, hand in hand.
